The Return ... of REBOOT!

The Return ... of REBOOT! photo



What? YES! Ladies and gentlemen, sit down, take a deep breath, then drink in the sweeping grandeur. The ridiculously awesome, awesomely ridiculous CG cartoon show, ReBoot, which entertained the masses back in 1994, is getting a remake with a series of three feature-length films. For those of you too young or pathetic to know the camp glory of ReBoot, it focused on a fantasy world contained within a computer, its characters and locations taken from actual computing components. The show stood out for having legitimately great characters and storylines. Evil viruses Megabyte and Hexidecimal were actually believable, threatening villains to this young child and the writing was somewhat intelligent, even if dripping with deus ex machina.

Needless to say, the adventures of guardian Bob as he enters the computer's videogames to protect its Mainframe were among my childhood staples and I am very much going to be checking out what Rainmaker Animation does to update the old classic. Sadly, the suave and sophisticated voice behind the megalomaniacal Megabyte, Tony Jay, is no longer of this mortal realm and I fear his presence will not be replaced easily, but I hope someone does the role justice. Now that I've utterly geeked myself out, I shall now retire to play with my Hack & Slash action figures. 

I wish I had Hack & Slash action figures.
