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-as they fend off attacks from the superviruses known as Megabyte and Hexadecimal in their constant pursuit of chaos and the destruction of Mainframe. Known as the VERY FIRST completely computer-animated half-hour 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 gamers ever since!
A week and a half ago we reported
that Shout! Factory's upcoming DVD plans include ReBoot - Seasons 1 & 2
, followed later on by a "ReBoot - Seasons 3 & 4
" (that's a working title and may change; "Season 4" consisted of a pair of telefilms which were later broken up into smaller "episodes"), and then everything compiled together into ReBoot - The Definitive Mainframe Edition
. In that previous report we showed off full-sized cover art for the latter title, and a thumbnail look at the box cover for the first item. That's one's seen again at the left, because today Shout! revealed the release date for ReBoot - Seasons 1 & 2
: it's March 1st
! Cost is $29.93 SRP for a 4-disc set, but you can pre-order it from Amazon
right away at a discount! The 23 episodes will be accompanied by extensive extras, and we'll fill you in on what those are just as soon as Shout! has finalized them. Stay tuned!
