    We recently came across this kids' tv show and have now found it on DVD at our library. The boys (DS8, PG and DS4, not tested but advanced) LOVE it. It's a cartoon show about kids who use math and science to solve problems. We originally found it on Amazon Prime, looks as though they have lots of episodes.

    Just wanted to share.

    OMG. Our life used to revolve around cyberchase. Then I bought a few DVDs...and finally I got a DVR with my cable....all so we could get our daily fix of cyberchase.

    ETA...he is fifteen now and not prone to "I missed cyberchase" meltdowns anymore.

    Yup-- my DD15 has very fond memories of Cyberchase and also another now-out-of-production series, Liberty's Kids. I can recall a minor tantrum or two over missed episodes. Fetch was another that she liked, but was a little too old for by the time of its debut.


    Wishbone-- anyone still have kids that watch that one? DD liked that almost as much as Magic Schoolbus. DD had a Fisher Price school bus as a toddler, and was completely enthralled with this item, just as many kids are. The difference? She named one of her Little People characters "Miss Frizzle." blush I had totally forgotten about that until just now. Wow!

    My two love Liberty's Kids; we got the entire series on DVD from Amazon for $5 as I recall.

    Oh, such good memories with all of those shows! I remember Wishbone but I'd forgotten about it (seemed like it was never on!). Scooby Doo was a big favorite too - and Caillou. I don't know why Caillou, but it was such a big hit. And Curious George.There were these DVDs I think we lost that told classic stories - a very accurate Hercules, a Nutcracker, etc.

    I guess this makes it seem like we watched a ton of TV, but we didn't....really, Caillou was at ~2-4, and the rest were rotational. Cyberchase was after school, I think, and the DVDs were weekends. Good times....;-)

    Caillou had really gentle parenting and I probably would have strangled that kid....the whining was enough to drive a mom to drink. Speak in a strong voice caillou or I can't hear you!!!!
