A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Demonstrates great problem solving with actual math skills at work. The "real life" segment reinforces the lessons by showing live-action kids using math and reasoning skills to solve practical problems.
Diverse characters take turns leading and solving problems. Teamwork is a major theme.
Positive Role Models
The kids are all smart and positive and are working to protect Mother Board and all that's good in the world. They cooperate and use different skill sets to solve problems. The only downside is that they're pretty flat characters without much realism.
Violence & Scariness
Some cartoon pratfalls.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Cyberchase mixes fantasy with practical problem-solving. The adventures aren't scary, violent, or sexually inappropriate. Rather, they require fortitude and brain power. When the main characters cooperate, their smarts overpower any struggle.
Is It Any Good?
The only downside to adventures in Cyberspace is the fact that many characters are glued to computer screens all day and have a limited sense of what goes on in the "real world." Apparently Cyberchase's producers considered this paradox and have provided a 5-minute scenario after the cartoon called "For Real," which shows a real person solving problems using the skills taught in the show -- in the real world.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
