From The TV IV
ReBoot is an animated adventure series that is most well known for being the first completely computer animated television series, predating the Pixar movie Toy Story by at least a year. The series largely deals with the inhabitants of a computer system known as Mainframe, particularly Bob (the Guardian), Enzo Matrix and Dot Matrix.
Although the series was created in Canada, the series was first broadcast in both the United States and Canada on ABC and YTV, respectively. The series was an instant hit for both children and parents, but American broadcast of the series was cancelled abruptly upon the acquisition of ABC by the Walt Disney Company shortly into the second season. Oddly, this was considered a mixed blessing by fans. While it did deprive American fans for new episodes (particularly in the third season), it did free Mainframe from the constraints of network standards and practices. This resulted in much darker storylines and themes, but American audiences didn't see these episodes until Cartoon Network picked up the series for Toonami in 1999.
A fourth season was produced in the way of two telefilms, which were split into eight episodes for syndication. The series ended on a cliffhanger, but no more episodes were produced.
