Everyone loves trivia about their favorite animated features and series, but with over 100 years of animation history behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in cartoons in this continuing video series. You think you know cartoons? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

This week we're taking a look at the first ever fully computer-animated TV series, ReBoot! Hey, remember computers? What if there was a show all about people inside computers and also that show was completely made by computers? If these questions excite you, have I got the show for you! This video takes a look at the history of ReBoot, including the many comics creators that worked on the show, its connection to Dire Straits, its antagonistic relationship with Broadcast Standards and Practices, and more!

Show notes:

  • You can buy the whole series in one go here, or if you'd rather split it up, you can get seasons 1 and 2 here, and seasons 3 and four here.
  • If you've got a PlayStation 1 and want to check out a game that is 69% good, you can buy a used copy of the ReBoot game here.
