Actually the correct term is that he assimilated the Principal’s office after (if I remeber correctly) nearly marring Dot. (I saw most of the four season the first and only time that it had aired on CN)
Now, let’s hope that it doesn’t get “updated for the times” in a way that ruins it- though I hear it’s being done by the same people, so that shouldn’t be the case.
Actually they would have too since most of the humor is based on the current trends of pop culture to begin with (i.e. a well executed parody of BSG or Heroes wouldn’t be too far fetched based on the series track record thus far).

There are three things about this series that made it concentrated win and own for me. First was just the amazing effort that went into the series as in the cutscenes in early PS2 video games are just about graphically on par with the first season of Reboot, and as an fyi the first season aired back in 1991, five years prior to Toy Story (and yes I was watching this back then too).
Second was that it was frickin’ hilarious as seen in the posts above and probably below (a couple of my favorites were the dungeon crawling episode, the Pokemon-sque episode, the 8-bit episode, and the giant blob episodes among others)
And finally for eventual plot development as the first two seasons, while having an overall plot, were fairly episodic the third season pulls a ‘Beast Wars’ (i.e. pulling together a series of loosely similar dangling plot threads into a solid story arc (also done by the same team that did Reboot)), and the fourth season further still.
