Mathnet was a segment on the kid’s show Square One Television, that ran from 1987-1992. What was it about. It was an extremely timely parody of the TV show Dragnet, but instead of using detective skills to solve mysteries they used math. As a fan of Dragnet, I could not help but watch this when it was on.
In this episode, Kate and George investigate a young teen’s claim that his father’s autographed Babe Ruth baseball is lost on Mrs. MacGregor’s property. Problem is, before the Mathnetters can check inside her house, the house is stolen!
