Welcome to command_line! The first and only community on Dreamwidth community dedicated to anything and everything related to the groundbreaking 1994 series, ReBoot and all that it implies.
__WHAT IS ReBoot?:
ReBoot is a CGI-animated action-adventure television series that originally aired from 1994 to 2001. It was produced by Vancouver-based production company, Mainframe Entertainment, and created by Gavin Blair, Ian Pearson, Phil Mitchell and John Grace, with the visuals designed by Brendan McCarthy after an initial attempt by Ian Gibson. The shows director was Richard Zondag, excutive producers are Stephane Reichel and Steve Barron. It is credited with being the first full-length, completely computer-animated TV series, predating both Pixar and Dreamworks' later movies. he highly inventive and quirky series really hit its strident stride in the second and third seasons, and is considered a classic example of early steam-driven computer animation. Episodes have been shown and stored at The Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC for posterity.
__WHAT IS ReBoot ABOUT?:
The setting is in the inner world of a computer system known by its inhabitants as Mainframe. The city is populated almost entirely by binomes, little creatures that represent either 1s or 0s, as well as a handful of Sprites, such as Bob and Dot, who are primarily humanoid creatures of more complex design and are the main characters of the series. Most of their adventures focus on fighting computer Viruses, such as Megabyte and Hexadecimal, and defending the city from Game Cubes sent by the User.
