The tree-sanity must be stopped! In an unlikely pairing, the CyberSquad steps in to help Hacker. But, will they be able save the forest before it's too late?

Harriet Hippo and the Mean Green

Hacker infects Motherboard with a new virus -- one that causes her to make cyber-citizens act mean. Digit and the kids go in search of an antidote: 2/5 of the Electro-Root, 2/8 of the Healing Stone, and 1/3 of a box of Hacker's wig gel -- a strange antidote indeed! Will the young cyber-heroes be able to gather the ingredients and figure out how to properly mix these odd fractions before it is too late? The Big Idea: Fractions that look different can represent the same portion of a whole. Math Topic: Equivalent Fractions.

The CyberSquad is called in to rescue the animals and restore harmony to Ecotopia. They team up with Ollie (guest star Rico Rodriguez), a Junior Ranger, and quickly learn this isn't their only problem.

A Camping Conundrum

Matt, Inez, Digit, and Jackie are planning a friendship retreat: four epic days of camping in the wilderness on Camptopia. Although Jackie's going to miss her warm bed, everyone's excited to spend uninterrupted time together in nature-no distractions whatsoever. All are happy campers until Digit's Power Pal 3000--a cooking-heating-entertainment center all-in-one--suddenly shuts down! With no gadgets to heat up their campsite, cook their meals, or save their retreat, temperatures drop while tensions rise. The kids have to learn how to work through their frustrations, and perhaps look up for a solution. Through a bit of trial and error, the kids discover that they can harness the power of the sun to solve their problems. It's amazing what solar energy and a little ingenuity can do!

Composting in the Clutch

Has Hacker finally found a way to take down Motherboard forever? All bets are off when Hacker stumbles upon the secret location of the "Program Proliferator" - a piece of hardware capable of reprogramming Motherboard's operating system. It's buried right under Dingerville Park, home of The Dingerball Series, a once-in-every-four-year championship game less than a week away. While retrieving the device, Hacker suctions up all the ballfield's dirt, leaving a giant crater in the ground-and in the hearts of all Cybercitizens. No one is more distraught than Lefty, the local seven-year-old pitcher Matt's been mentoring. The CyberSquad must figure out how to refill the missing dirt before the big game! Could composting lead to a home run?

The accused claims he's innocent. Like Sherlock Holmes and Watson, the kids and Digit investigate the crime by interviewing eyewitnesses and recreating the crime scene.

Hacker, longing again for Wicked, devises a deliciously dreadful plan to impress her: He sneaks into Happily-Ever-Afterville, uncovers the Book of Unhappy Endings, releases them across the site and crowns himself king!

To rescue the site, the CyberSquad must get the Book back from Hacker to recapture the unhappy endings, and seal it inside 3 nesting boxes with precisely fitting lids ... all before sundown!

Introducing Memoryville, home to a vast storehouse of Cyberspace data, where The Slugball Open, a Cyberspace version of baseball, is in progress. In their attempt to win for a day the Key to the City, Team Motherboard has made it to the finals ... along with, you guessed it, Hacker! Unbeknownst to most (except, of course, to Hacker), this Key opens all doors to the city-including the door to the data storehouse! With surefire plans to win, Hacker can hardly wait to delete the data and create untold chaos. Undaunted by the awesome array of Hacker's bad guys, Team Motherboard discovers distinctive patterns to these nefarious sluggers' past performances.

Pursuit of the Prism of Power

Hacker has stolen the Prism of Power--a vital piece of Motherboard's Operating System! Over the trees of Jungolia, the CyberSquad is in hot pursuit, when suddenly, a gust of wind sends everyone careening across the lush cybersite. Facing monsters, canyons, and cliffs, Digit and the kids must form unlikely alliances with Hacker, Buzz, and Delete as they pursue the Prism. Along the way, they notice how life on Jungolia is well suited to the surroundings--creatures blend into mud with camouflage, burrs cling to moss with hooks on their exterior, and sure-footed goats easily amble up the steepest peaks. Perhaps these features are just the creative inspiration the kids need. Can the CyberSquad adapt to the challenge? And who will be the first to reach the Prism of Power?

A Murky Mystery In Mermaidos

Digit is going on his annual visit to Mermaidos, an underwater cybersite filled with merfolk, to visit one of his best friends in the whole cyber-world-Eugene. The two of them are great buddies who love to play underwater games, frolic with fish, and do other wacky water things in this idyllic underwater paradise. When Digit arrives, something is wrong. Mermaidos is murky and warm and the fish are leaving in droves. Digit feels terrible for his pal Eugene and promises to do what he can to make things right. It turns out Hacker has put a plan in motion to turn Mermaidos into his own personal hot tub! He is making the water hotter and hotter, raising the temperature to a hot 100 cyber-degrees- a temperature that would make Mermaidos uninhabitable for the Mermaidians and force them to move out. It is up to Digit and the CyberSquad to stop Hacker's plan, reverse the thermal pollution and help save Eugene's home.

Creech's Creature Quandary

Creech invites her good friends the CyberSquad to Tikiville to show off the amazing new bike path that has everyone driving their fantastic new bikes and trikes rather than cars. Everyone is having fun - even Hacker is joyriding on his bike (and if that isn't suspicious, Jackie doesn't know what is). Inez, who cares deeply for animals, soon realizes the bike path has divided the habitats of many of Tikiville's cute, cuddly creatures. Creature families have been split up, and the busy bike path is preventing animals from reaching their food and water sources. Inez feels the bike path should be shut down, but Creech doesn't want to take away the benefits the path has created for her community. The disagreement drives a wedge between the two good friends. Will they find a compromise? Will a map of the area help Inez and her friends reunite the cute critters to their families and homes? And what is that sneaky Hacker up to?!

Hacker pollutes cyberspace with dangerous cyberstatic by tampering with four satellites designed to keep everything free from cyber- static cling.

The Big Idea: You can use an equation - a statement that two different expressions are equal to each other - to find unknown values that make the equation true.

Brigit thinks she knows what's going on, thanks to a chart she's kept of how many bats--or in this case, how few--have come to pollinate the cactus flowers so far. Where have all the bats gone?

She's partnered with Nug Grommet, the handsome cyber-surfing champion in a dance contest. Turning even greener with jealousy, Hacker enters the contest to prove his superiority. Only there's one small problem-who can he coerce into being his partner? Enter the CyberSquad. Observing Jackie's prowess on the dance floor, Hacker has Buzz and Delete detain Inez, then forces Jackie to teach him the moves and dance with him in exchange for Inez's safe return. As the contest unfolds, it becomes apparent that the judges lack a workable scoring system to decide the winner. Determined to help Inez, Matt joins the judges to find a way to score the contest. And, as Wicked points out, it had better be fair or she will wreak her revenge! Should Matt give Hacker and Jackie a higher score than Wicked and Nug so Inez can go free? Or judge the contest fairly and hope Digit rescues Nezzie in time?
