Main Characters

Recurring/Minor Characters



Hacker kidnaps Slider and then sends the Cybersquad on a fake rescue mission on the cybersite Ticktockia-but it turns out to be a trick!

Jackie, Matt, Inez and Digit get trapped inside TickTockia while Hacker keeps Slider captive on the Grim Wreaker!  The giant clock that serves as Ticktockia's door will only stay open for a few hours.

The team must find their way out of Ticktockia and rescue Slider-if he needs rescuing, that is...


In a crinkle in time, Slider asks Hacker if he knew where Coop is. This is odd, because Slider and the Cybersquad found Coop three episodes back (Measure for Measure). Slider's hoodie also magically gets longer sleeves in that scene.


  • The train the Cybersquad arrive at the Old Gearzers Home in, which falls down the hill after they forget to set the brake, flips around between shots.
