This animated series was based on the premise of a computer brain landing on earth, beginning adventures for two young siblings, Matt aged 12 and his sister Sam, aged 10. C.L.Y.D.E. stood for Computer Linked Yield Driven Entity, and was what the children called the computer brain. C.L.Y.D.E. had been banished from his home planet because he had developed human characteristics, such as a sense of humour. When Matt and Sam found C.L.Y.D.E., they hooked him up to an old jukebox to bring him back to life. C.L.Y.D.E. was also able to network with every computer system in the world, had the power to materialize at any time, and could reduce the children to the size of electrons. His presence had to be kept secret due to all these extraordinary powers. The threesome would often get into some kind of scrap, only to have danger averted at the last minute. All the storylines involved computers.
