"EcoHaven CSE" is the first episode of the third season of Cyberchase. It originally aired on May 3, 2004.
Someone has stolen the legendary cyberbeast Choocroca from cybersite EcoHaven, and the only clue is the culprit’s footprint. Using the principles of “body math,” the CyberSquad has to sleuth out who took Choocroca and rescue the massive beast. The suspects are members of a safari team – one of them is secretly working for Hacker, who wants to capture the creature and use it to take over Cyberspace. The CyberSquad must use forensic science to build their case and find both the culprit and the critter before Hacker gets his way.
- Because Buzz and Delete are on vacation, they aren't featured throughout the episode nor do they have speaking roles. They are featured in a briefly in a scene where they are sunbathing, while Hacker talks to them on the phone.
- Matt reveals the "stand-for" words for the abbreviation CSE: "Crime Scene Exploration."
- When Inez sings Junior a lullaby, the language she sings is in Spanish. The lyrics translated are: "It is time to go to sleep, to rest in in your bed. It is time to go to sleep...." but cuts off by Matt.
- Choocroca's name is a pun on Chewbacca, Han Solo's sidekick from Star Wars.
