ABC’s classic Saturday morning cartoon Reboot is getting its own reboot on Netflix, and in celebration of that reboot’s premiere, Shout! Factory and Twitch have partnered for a marathon of the original series.

Shout! Factory and Twitch will present a 24-hour marathon of the original Reboot series starting Wednesday, March 28 at 3 p.m. It can be viewed online at Shout! Factory’s official Twitch channel.  The series’ full 47-episode run is just one reason audiences will want to check out the marathon.  Fast ForwardThe Making of Reboot and Alpha NumericLooking Back at Reboot with co-creator Gavin Blair will also be part of the marathon.  Audiences can see a trailer for the marathon online now here.

Reboot was television’s very first-ever fully computer-animated series, and debuted domestically on ABC Saturday mornings in 1994.  It followed the adventures of main character Bob (a guardian) and his friends as they work to keep Mainframe safe from the viruses Megabyte and Hexadecimal while also having to take part in games sent to Mainframe by “the user.”

All 47 episodes of the original Reboot are available on VOD via Shout! Factory TV.  Audiences can see the trailer for Netflix’s new Reboot redux here.  The new series is currently expected to air on Netflix March 30,17 years after the original ended with an unresolved cliffhanger.
