24 years ago–oh User, I’m old…–Saturday-morning cartoon fans everywhere were introduced to the first, fully CG-animated series: ReBoot. Hailing from Mainframe Entertainment, now Rainmaker Studios, the series centered on the sprites living in a user’s computer system who have to not only participate in games booted up by the user, but also keep the computer running smoothly and defend it from attacks by viruses. Dot Matrix and her younger brother Enzo are assisted in these tasks by the Guardian Bob, though many, many characters come and go over the course of the series, even upgrading themselves as the story and technology evolves.

If you’ve never had the pleasure of watching this series from beginning to end, I have phenomenal news for you: Shout! Factory TV is partnering with content-streaming platform Twitch to air a 24-hour marathon of the entire original series, along with bonus content. The marathon kicks off at 3pm PT on Wednesday, March 28th and will feature all 47 episodes.

Known as the very first completely computer-animated TV series, ReBoot debuted in the United States on ABC’s Saturday-morning block in 1994 and has captured the hearts and imaginations of kids and adult gamers ever since.

Welcome to Mainframe. Home to Guardian Bob, formatted to mend and defend. Join the fast-paced action and adventure as Bob and his friends – Dot, her brother Enzo and his trusty dog Frisket – fend off attacks from the superviruses known as Megabyte and Hexadecimal in their relentless pursuit of chaos and the destruction of Mainframe.

The show’s unique setting inside a computer allows the characters and storylines to mine the references to computers and video games for all they’re worth, giving the show its humorous edge. The innovative animation, insider humor and high octane action combine to give viewers a lot of binary bang for their buck.

All episodes of ReBoot are also available on VOD at Shout! Fatctory TV.
