THE CYBERCHASE MOVIE celebrates the Emmy Award-winning series' 100th episode in fitting style, with an expanded 60-minute format that gives the characters more time to demonstrate the strong teamwork and problem-solving skills for which the show is known. Here the challenges are twofold: installing a safety lock to disable the catastrophic reset button, and ushering the animals to safety after the slime explosion Hacker wrought. To do this, the kids need cool heads, collaborative spirits, and a knowledge of proportions and fractions, which nicely illustrate real-world applications of math and reasoning skills.

But the learning potential doesn't stop there. Through Ollie's ranger work, kids are introduced to environmental issues with a focus on conservation, exploring how different biotopes thrive by meeting the needs of all of their residents. They also see what happens when outside forces restrict a biotope, sending ripple effects through neighboring habitats. In other words, it gives kids lots to think about and is a great way to introduce concepts of eco-awareness in your home.

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.
