Binomes is an unproduced Canadian animated series, intended to be a younger-skewing spinoff of the first full-length CG animated series, ReBoot. The show was set to be created by Mainframe Entertainment, who at the time was owned by IDT Entertainment.

The show would have focused completely on the Binome characters, as no Sprites from ReBoot were intended to appear. The star would have been a young Binome named Bin, and his friends and family. The stories were stated to be simple, about their everyday adventures living in Mainframe.

Binomes was introduced at MIP-TV in 2004 to prospective broadcasters and investors as consisting of 26 eleven-minute episodes. [1] The series was then presented at the 2005 NATPE conference as running for 26 twenty-two-minute episodes.[2] Binomes failed to garner enough interest from the industry and was ultimately quietly cancelled.

A promotional flyer and a detailed plot synopsis were shared in 2007's Art of ReBoot concept art book.

Plot Synopsis

Meet Bin! And his friends and family: Cookie, Digit, Browser, the Kernel, Mr. and Mrs. Fontface, and the Wizzywigs! They live on a chip farm where computer chips grow, cables are trees, and children are told to eat their electrons -- because they're good for them.

Whether Bin is helping his parents on their chip farm, playing beta-ball with his friends, or just facing the typical growing pains of any young boy, our audience will see that he's just like them.

And what's it like inside a computer? It's a place of shiny-sided houses topped with motherboard roofs, and curved barns that look like a cross between an aeroplane hanger and a wireless mouse. There's even a stream for the kids to play in -- sure, it's a sparkling silver data-stream, but it is a stream.

You may have noticed that Bin and his buddies look a little... unusual. But they're not just stationary cubes - they're alive and limber! When Bin gets excited ("No school today?!") he'll spin his head in circles. And when he gets a sudden surprise, his cubes will jump apart, then drop back together. (Neat, huh?)

The Binomes. They're just plain processors in a world where beta-balls hover, the sky is blue circuits, and static storms are the norm. But kids still like to play, have adventures and be read to at bedtime -- because some things never change ( including Bin's Mom's hair... but that's another story!)

52 x 11' minute episodes from leading CGI Animation producer Mainframe Entertainment --- a pre-school show for every little kid that's surfed the net!
