In the beginning, the story was primarily about Bob, a Guardian (security program) from "The Supercomputer" who is assigned to protect the relatively backwoods city of Mainframe. His two main friends are his love interest (and smart businesswoman) Dot Matrix, and her younger (and hyperactive) brother Enzo. He is also aided by the system administrator Phong, who fills the role of a vaguely [[{{Koan}} Confucian]] [[TheObiWan mentor]].

* TheBlank: Hexadecimal has a series of masks that she quickly swaps out behind her hand to change expressions. Her real face is not shown until halfway through the second season, when Bob removes her mask and reveals that there's absolutely nothing beneath. [[spoiler:This also happens in the PlayStation game]].)

* OutOfCharacterMoment: The PlayStation game, which has numerous CGI cutscenes originally intended for a pilot episode, is full of these. Bob [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmg7lL0b6vg knocks the bejeezus out of Megabyte]] after winning their boss encounter, Hexadecimal [[DeadGuyOnDisplay practices taxidermy on Bob and Dot]] in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iU5AB-3Aowo a game over cinematic]]. Most notably, Hex has a HughMann scene before the final battle, masquerading as Dot and seducing Bob with so much {{Fanservice}} that it is a shock to the typical [=ReBoot=] fan when first seen.

The series ran for three seasons before being canceled in 1998, causing them to let go of a story arc introduced a few episodes earlier and make up a thrown-together HappyEnding. After an UnCanceled fourth season in 2001 consisting of two movies and a more deliberate CliffHanger, it now sits in limbo, awaiting another conclusion that may never come... or, with the announcement of a trilogy of movies in the works [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zscrv7OJ3TU and a trailer]], that well might.

Now continued in a webcomic format on [[http://www.reboot.com the official ReBoot site,]] which has been declared as {{Canon}}. Creator/ShoutFactory [[http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/ReBoot-The-Complete-Series/14499 released the show on DVD in 2011.]]

A [[JustForPun reboot]] has been [[http://www.bringbackreboot.com/1/post/2013/10/press-release-reboot-in-development.html announced]], tentatively titled ''ReBoot: the Guardian Code''. It is listed as "In Development" on the [[http://www.rainmaker.com/?/site/TVseries/InDevelopment Rainmaker website]].

[[http://www.corusent.com/home/Corporate/PressReleases/tabid/1697/Default.aspx?Id=3007 A press release]] later revealed it was a CGI/Live-Action hybrid show where [[RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude Teenagers With Attitude]] battle the forces of Megabyte and The Sourceror as they unleash mega-virus monsters to attack electronic systems.

Added DiffLines:

* UnwantedAssistance:
** In one episode, the Binomes try to win the game for Bob by triggering an EarthShatteringKaboom, while still ''inside the planet''. Bob was not amused.
--> "I'm supposed to save them from the User, not themselves."
** In another episode, when Enzo accidentally lowered the intelligence of everybody in Mainframe, he had to deal with their attempts to "help" when they were all trapped in a game together. Eventually, he discovered the key to victory: Have them "help" the User.
--> "We are helping! We are helping!"

Added DiffLines:

* GoodPaysBetter: Dot Matrix was able to stop the Crimson Binome's pirate raid by parleying with him and his accountant. After showing him that his pirate profit margins were lower than her own rates for honest cargo hauling, she hired him and his ship.

Added DiffLines:

** The game used in the pinnacle episode "Game Over" is a direct nod to [[Franchise/MortalKombat Mortal Kombat]]. This is evident by a theme music during the game that's very similar to the one used in the originals. This is also backed up by both Enzo Rebooting into a direct parody of Scorpion, in all but his signature harpoon attack, and [=AndrAIa=] Rebooting into a parody of Sheeva. The extremely graphic means of the User's avatar ripping the heads off of his defeated opponents also suggests a nod to the extremely graphical means of finishing opponents with a Fatality.
** The entire episode "Number 7" is a direct nod to [[Series/ThePrisoner The Prisoner]]. This is obvious once Matrix flies in, with a virtual clone of the iconic theme music playing (including the thunderclap), including Number Six's march down an empty hallway. A conveniently placed teacup and saucer also is placed for the fist slam at the end of the resignation drop. A vid window appears with his Rebooted avatar and the X's are typed over it, for filing. While he is being filed away, he uses an iconic line: "My life is my own!" Many other characters also use the repeated line "Be seeing you!", oft used with a salute by persons in the series.
