  • There is a new guardian in town.

    This season premiere kicks off from last season's exciting finale. Bob has been sent away into the web by Megabyte. Dot, Mouse, Enzo, and the others are fighting off the remaining Megabyte's forces. In the midst of it all, Hexadecimal decides to that she wants to blow up Mainframe but was interrupted by a game cube. She consequently get severely injured and was taken to Megabyte's tour to be "repaired". Enzo gets his first mission as being a guardian, but is not being accepted as one by most of the inhabitants of Mainframe. This is an interesting concept as Enzo learns that despite of everyone's doubt and disapproval, he must press on as being the new guardian of Mainframe.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Dot no longer had her 'uno-boobs" as the creators called it. Prier to this she was not allowed to have two separate one b/c it was to 'graphic'

      After Dot says this line, Enzo and Dot both look straight into the camera. Throughout this episode, they are trying to teach a hidden lesson about not playing violent video games.

  • QUOTES (7)

  • NOTES (16)


    • Right after Dot ReBoots in the Game turning into the "Elvira" like character, she says "What am I supposed to be?" and a short sample of music plays. This music is a reference to part of the Addams Family theme song. Judging by the music and the way she 'walks' before she tears the dress off. She is modeled after Morticia Addams more than Elvira.

    • The war room of the Principal Office is based on the main bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

    • Marge (Frances McDormand): "He's not a really a guardian don't you know."

      While Megabyte is watching the tv the charater of Marge from "Fargo" appears talking about Enzo as the new guardian.
      She is dressed the same as she was in the film and is holding an Oscar in tribute to the award Frances McDormand recieved for her role in the film.

    • Hexadecimal: "Say hello to my leetle friend!"

      This quote came from the movie "Scarface," in which the drug lord shouted this just before going out guns blazing, into possible death. Hex says this just before the Game Cube lands on the Hardware, overloading it--and her--and blowing her up.

    • User: Groovy!

      This is a line frequently uttered by Ash, the protagonist of the "Evil Dead" movies, in "Evil Dead 2" and "Army of Darkness".
