Return to the Past: A Code Lyoko Retrospective

Remember Code Lyoko? That show with the foreheads? The one you used to half-watch while you waited for Teen Titans to come on? The RTTP crew remembers. Join Mary, Ben, and David as we discuss this dorky, cheesy, weirdly touching, occasionally brilliant, underrated relic of early noughties kid culture. Bring your skateboard, y’hear?

Welcome, friends old and new, to the first episode of The Ultimate Reprise: Earth's only podcast about Oban Star Racers!

Cool, angsty teen Eva Wei ditches school to go hang out with her dad (as cool teens are wont to do). Little does she realize that she, like you, is on the cusp of a Franime space adventure.

Join the Super Nuclear group (Mary, David, and Ben, for those of you who didn't spend the last three years hearing us babble about Code Lyoko) as they continue to race through the Dubya years, one semi-obscure French cartoon at a time. Now with more uncensored swears!

As I say in the intro here, this will be the last post (for now) in the Return to the Past feed. You can follow the rest of the series at theultimatereprise.com/rss ! Also note that we have changed our twitter handle to @super_nuclear.

The Ultimate Reprise trailer is HERE! The first episode of The Ultimate Reprise will be our last post in this feed (for now). Our new site/RSS feed is http://theultimatereprise.libsyn.com/rss - go ahead and subscribe for more! We have are currently being considered for Apple Podcasts/Google Play listing approval; you can find it there soon.

We have also changed our Twitter handle - see below!

If you've never seen Oban Star Racers, you should. We're not mincing words or hiding our peer pressure. If you love cartoons, if exquisite animation and cool ships and aliens and tightly crafted plotting and emotional drama are everything you could ever want out of your cartoons, you owe it to yourself to absorb this series - and ours, since that's what we're doing.

And if you have seen it? FANTASTIC. Here's a good reason to watch it again.

From the creative voices/loudmouths behind Return to the Past: A Code Lyoko Retrospective comes - that's right - a full second recap/rewatch podcast about a French animated cartoon from the early-mid 2000s co-created by Thomas Romain. Join Mary and David as they revisit and share a show that is incredibly powerful and special to them, and Ben as he watches it for pretty much the first time!

You can watch along with us through the Oban: Star Racers DVDs, or purchase the digital copies on Youtube or Amazon.

Our first episode drops Monday, September 9th!

Hello everyone! As promised, here is Ben's reading of a story David and Mary wrote together! It was prompted by the "Collaboration" episode of the podcast Start With This by Night Vale Presents, which you can find on your podcast app or at this address: http://www.nightvalepresents.com/startwiththis 

The story was derived from @dril's Skeleton War tweet, which you can find here: https://twitter.com/dril/status/361282749086175234

Tune in later this week for The Ultimate Reprise's trailer!

Welp, here we are at the end. When we started Return to the Past two years ago, we were just three unsuccessful dorks; now, thanks to you, we're three unsuccessful dorks with a podcast about Code Lyoko. Join us for one last conversation about ol' CL, and stand by for the credits and a special announcement about the future!

===

Stay tuned for a few more special features to come in this feed! Including a trailer for our new Oban Star Racers podcast, The Ultimate Reprise, the first episode of which will go live on September 9th, 2019.

Also, we had to do a few pickup recordings for this episode, so apologies if there are any choppy cuts! We tried to make it as natural as possible. And again thank you, thank you so much.

Here it is: the final battle. The big enchilada. Ninety-four episodes of cartoon nonsense, all leading up to this. William is back on Earth, Xana is on the ropes, Ulrich and Yumi are... still making room for the Holy Spirit. What do our three very tired hosts make of it? Tune in to find out!

Well, we mostly exposit on the crucial difference between catboys and boys who are cats. But we also give in to a serious case of the Feels. Join us for our penultimate episode!

You said you wanted plot? Well, here's some plot! Here's all the plot! Here's three seasons' worth of plot, all in twenty-two minutes! Eat it up, little piggies! There's one and a half episodes left and we are limping right the hell to that barn!

If you, like many an OG Code Lyoko fan, wonder when and how the show would resolve the plot threads pertaining to Xana, William, and Clone William, the answers are 'right now' and 'poorly.' Join Mary, David, and Ben as they press F for the sweetest fake boy in the world. And also talk about insect sex. (Yeah, we know what you're really here for.)

Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or many duck-sized horses? These and other brain busters will be grappled with on this episode of Return to the Past, as our very tired hosts do whatever it takes to avoid recapping yet another clunker. At least this one has spooky Soviet experiments in it. Just in time for Stranger Things season 3.

This episode of Return to the Past carries a content warning for descriptions of gore/viscera at 44:30.

It's been over ninety episodes of this Lyoko crap. How about we pivot to Evangelion instead? That's hot and trendy again, right? And, really, is there anything more fun than listening to young white people share their brave yet controversial opinions about anime? Join us for ten minutes of that, followed by a long groan of an episode of a far inferior thing that isn't even a real anime.

Also featured: Ben pokes gentle fun at his goofball of a stepfather and makes lascivious comments about cartoon characters again, David tells the surprising but true story of the time some jackass filed a complaint with his employer because of a disagreement about Rick and Morty, and Mary laughs for 40 seconds straight at a dancing Ukranian man.

Also, we'll need your help for two upcoming projects! We'd like to assemble a "clip show" of show moments for Echoes, and a collection of listener messages (written or recorded, your choice) for our final season break/postmortem. If you would like to contribute to either, please let us know at rttppodcast@gmail.com !

This Code Lyoko episode carries a content warning for jokes about and imagery reminiscent of suicide. This episode of Return to the Past carries a content warning for discussion of this scene starting at 1:22:00.

In this episode, we decided to cover a dying industry, kept barely alive by a small handful of unattractive white men who fear competent women and throw a tantrum whenever they see a brown person. Unfortunately, our episode on the Republican party wasn't finished on time, so instead, let's talk about comic books! Excelsior!

That's right: Code Lyoko once had a comic book series, canceled after three issues when it became apparent that nobody gave a sh*t. EXCEPT FOR US! Join us as we discuss bee golems, quote-unquote "groupies", the latest in jock lingo, and more four-color funnybook hilarity!

We continue or coverage of Code Lyoko as it squeezes out its last few squeaky, underwhelming farts. This week, twenty-one minutes and thirty seconds of nothing in particular followed by one of the biggest revelations in the show's history. And by 'biggest revelations' we mean 'A thing that definitely happened.'

Also: Mary, David, and Ben investigate whatever happened to the Numa Numa Guy (spoiler: nothing much), Ben and David make Futurama references that confuse and delight Mary, and and Ben betrays his people by exhibiting knowledge of sports.

In 'Music to Soothe the Savage Beast,' there is no savage beast unless you count Sissi and William, and music certainly does not soothe them. But, despite its woefully inaccurate title, this used to be David's favorite episode of Code Lyoko! Does it hold up? Let's find out!

Join us as we geek out over Aerosmooth, make fun of a man's name like so many common middle school bullies, and surf on these vibes to a brave new world OH GOD WE'RE SORRY we feel awful just typing that.

In this episode, we meet Jeremie's cousin Patrick, who is pale and broody and has a caramel pompadour. Uh-oh! Does he also sparkle in the sunlight and watch girls in their sleep??? (You groan, but that joke would've killed in 2007.) 

Join Mary, David, Ben, and very special guest Dianna as they reheat this and many other Dubya-era knee-slappers. (And, indeed, as a spam email sends Ben face-first into a creepypasta.)

Note that this episode is so soapy, we half-expected an eyepatch-wearing evil twin to turn up at the end. It's so soapy, it damn near disinfected our bathrooms.

Ground control to Major Tom, someone set us up the bomb! This episode was scheduled to come out on Monday, but due to an act of sabotage by internet gremlins, it's coming at you today instead. Sorry!

But yes, it's true - like other classic TV characters before them, including but not limited to Josie and the Pussycats and Fonzie, the Lyoko Warriors are taking a trip to space. In addition, we finally reveal Ben's cat's full name (which we didn't really know was a mystery but damn if it didn't just get solved), David travels back in time to ride dinosaurs with Jesus, and Mary laughs at Jean-Pierre in a penguin costume.

Some people like Code Lyoko. Others like robot dog buttholes. Once in a generation, something magical happens that brings these two warring tribes together. That thing is this episode.

Alas, it's not all sunshine and rainbows, as this episode also marks the last appearance of Ben's favorite character, Johnny (don't worry, we've prepared a fitting send-off). There's also some racism, helpfully inserted by the English translation, perhaps in order to make the episode more relatable to Americans.

Welcome to another rip-roaring episode of this BS. Today, we're going to talk about Brynja, the character that made the (admittedly pretty meager, but plenty enthusiastic) Code Lyoko fandom sh*t their collective britches back in ye olden times. What exactly is she? A chaos demon? A parody of Mary Sues? Mary, David, Ben, and local cryptid Jess investigate, all whilst getting roped into another argument about whether D&D is for nerds or whether cool kids are also allowed to join in.

But wait, that's not all! We also discuss farts, Shakespeare, farts in Shakespeare, which of the Lyoko characters would vape, again (spoiler: it's William), and Australia's frightening animals and lovely listeners. Also, Ben, Jess, and Mary teach David how gays sit.

This episode of Code Lyoko and of RTTP contains a content warning for mentions of suicide in the beginning; in here it's around the 11 minute mark. There is also a mention of animal death at around 1:34:00.

Today on Return to the Past, David rattles off a long list of weird Scooby-Doo knockoffs that he found on Twitter. And not a moment too soon, because, if Mike the cat's constant distressed mewling is any indication, Ben's Xbox summons a ghost when it's powered on! Anyone know how we can contact Goober and the Ghost Chasers?

While we worry about that, you can enjoy this fresh new episode (as of twelve years ago) of Code Lyoko, wherein Jeremie is invited to a real missile launch by a French airman who looks and sounds like if Tom Cruise circa Top Gun had a baby with Elvis. It is a hoot and not to be missed.

This RTTP episode carries a content warning for a brief discussion of animal abuse at 34:00.

In this episode, Odd has no luck because Vriska already took aaaaaaaall of it! [Editor's note: David wrote that joke. Rest assured that he has been fired.]

In between an honestly corny framing device in which we find out luck is real in the Lyokoverse (along with ghosts, souls and pink hair), we get Ulrich and Yumi actually being adorably flirty for once, more ABANDONED AMERICAN MILITARY BASE shenanigans, and humor flowing from Jim like beer piss from a hobo's bladder.

We ALSO have an incredible special guest for this one - Matt of Avana Music, as you may recognize from our amazing opening and closing theme! Thank you so much Matt for gracing us with your presence, and for letting us school you in the wonderful world of Tay Zonday's Chocolate Rain.

Also, because Mary had to leave abruptly, we weren't able to get to the mailbag this week. Check back next week for more!

Plot? In MY season four? It's more likely than you think! Granted, this episode doesn't contribute to the story so much as it recalls old plot points from seasons one and two, but beggars can't be choosers. At least this episode [I GEDDIT!] officially introduces Odd's five sisters, to the delight of fanfic writers everywhere (read; Mary), and almost but not quite gives us a look at Franz Hopper's eyes.

We could not be more excited to share this episode with you today. Not only do we have two very special guests (Translation Shaman-Scientist Sarah and Gargalax the Unknowable) But guess who's back? OUR SWEET BOI, Clone William.

And he's sweeter - and smarter - than ever, imitating Odd's silly pranks and bravely defending his friends from dangerous evil Williams. Unfortunately, our brave and morally just heroes spend most of the episode reasoning their way out of thinking of him as a sentient being. And then trying to convince us with the same, with little success.

Behold, our latest and most desperate ratings grab: a live episode! Our friends joined us in a Twitch stream where we answered questions and shot the breeze about live, the universe, and Code Lyoko.

Mary and David make fun of Wreck-It Ralph 2, the trio talks about genies and bears with at least one genuine Australian, and Mary pits Ben against David in a surprise Code Lyoko trivia contest that we somehow all manage to lose.

Thanks to everyone who joined us on the stream! And to those of you who didn't, we still love you, but you've now been demoted to mere silver-tier RttP fans. Sorry, we don't make the rules. (We totally do.)

A few of the hilarious images we looked at in this episode:

Get ready to unearth some long-repressed memories. In lieu of a normal episode, we're discussing four of Cartoon Network's "Groovies" - those animated music videos that used to play between shows in the Powerhouse (and maybe also the CN City?) eras. So if you're here for Code Lyoko, you may be disappointed, but if you're a fan of sharks with goatees, this may be the show you've been waiting for!

By the by, we'll be hosting a Twitch stream on Friday, March 22 at http://www.twitch.tv/supernucleargroup where you'll be able to "ask us anything," as the teens are saying these days. Not only about Lyoko but about life, the universe, and everything. So thank you for your patience, and please stay tuned!

Here are the four bangers we took a look at in this episode:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHrFHTGP5i4 - Courage the Cowardly Dog by They Might be Giants

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vn1pf0Xi3nU - Jabberjaw by Pain

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9cr4HvQmj8 - The Incredible Shrinking Day / I'm Not Coming In Anymore by Garrett Freireich (Ed, Edd n Eddy)

Hey, do you like it when Code Lyoko just gets friggin wacky? Bam, here's an episode where Odd turns into a dog. The disparity between the realistic depictions of middle school angst and nonsense like this never ceases to amaze. Also, there are stinky feet jokes (the fart jokes of Europe).

Join the usual trio of franime trash people (your humble hosts!) as they gush over Clone William, reminisce about the halcyon days of AlbinoBlackSheep, and talk about Spider-Man. Lots and lots of Spider-Man.

This episode contains practically zero teen drama and is all about the lasers and kicking, so you'd think it's pretty bad, right? Actually, not so! There's a wee smidge of Flanderization, but that aside, it makes us care about the nuts and bolts of Code Lyoko's plot - a rare feat indeed.

Also, Ben tells us about the Horse Hole. What is it? Mary and David were hoping you could tell us. Additional topics of discussion include: male nipples (feat. a lengthy digression about the movie Time Bandits), cheese poops, incomprehensible Gen-Z memery, and sock enspidering.
