Surprise your friends, amaze your family, and unleash your inner geek! It is time to join the ReBoot revolution!
Since early 1990s, DOT MATRIX, ENZO, GUARDIAN BOB and thousands of BINOMES from REBOOT have thrust into battles with corrupt forces of MEGABYTES and HEXADECIMAL to stop their relentless pursuit of chaos and destruction of the high-tech city MAINFRAME. REBOOT made history for being the first fully computer-generated animated TV series when it debuted on U.S and Canadian television in 1994. The series ran four successful seasons and was seen in over 70 countries around the world, boasting a large fan base of loyal followers in kids and adult gamers alike. The show’s unique setting inside a computer allows the characters and storylines to mine the references to computers and video games for all they’re worth, giving the show its humorous edge. The innovative animation, insider humor and high octane action combine to give viewers a lot of binary bang for their buck.
Now you can relive the fast-paced animated action adventures when Shout! Factory, in association with Rainmaker Entertainment, Inc., will debut the long-awaited REBOOT: SEASONS 1 & 2 DVD set on March 1, 2011. This collectible 4-DVD set features all 23 episodes from the first and second seasons, along with special commentary by producer Christopher Brough, designer and storyboard artist Blair Peters and animator Zeke Norton. REBOOT: SEASONS 1 & 2 DVD set is priced at $29.93 SRP.
And for those who really can’t get enough of REBOOT, Shout! Factory, along with Rainmaker Entertainment, are set to unleash REBOOT: THE DEFINITIVE MAINFRAME EDITION Complete Series DVD box. Brimming with over 18 hours of content, including the entire animated series and a bounty of extras, this must-have 9-DVD box set also features a special 24-page collectible book and a limited-edition lenticular collectors card of Dot’s diner.
REBOOT: THE DEFINITIVE MAINFRAME EDITION arrives exclusively to Shout Factory’s official online store ShoutFactoryStore.com and the official fan site ReBoot.com on March 2011, months before this 9-DVD box set hits the retail shelves nationwide later this year. Loyal fans can now preorder REBOOT: THE DEFINITIVE MAINFRAME EDITION Complete Series DVD set today at shoutfactorystore.com or at ReBoot.com.
