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?

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:

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.

In this, the """"lost"""" episode, it turns out XANA is much more powerful than any of us ever imagined, what with his cybernetic spiders and his robot army and his growing brains (I swear, guys, this is a thing that happens). Unfortunately, this revelation doesn't get nearly as much attention as a frankly unengaging attempt to convince us that a forgotten birthday is enough to make Yumi hate Ulrich forever. 

Meanwhile, in 'Murica, Mary and David exercise their own brand of all-encompassing power by engineering a way to talk about cloacas again. Marvel as David opens his Valentine's Day present live on the air, as well! (I mean, you can't see it, but you ASMR enthusiasts may be tickled silly by our paper-crinkling action.)

Season four keeps the hits coming with a rather touching episode about Yumi and Hiroki's fraught relationship - even if it does involve them all being very dumb in very entertaining ways. It also introduces William's snazzy new ship, the Rorqual, which looks like a Navskid with a Dib ahoge on it. Needless to say, it's pretty rad.

And speaking of sea life, Mary's quest to convince David to love isopods continues, Ben and David share their favorite anecdotes about incorrect usage of the word 'pimp,' and the 'Group announces their cool new domain name! You won't believe which mythical creature it's themed after.

We like this episode because Clone William is in it for about ten seconds, and also (thanks to some MoonScoop intern mailing the wrong model sheets to Vietnam, we presume) because the characters all wear their S1-3 outfits for one last, glorious time. But you know what? It's a pretty good episode regardless! This Francois Deon guy knows what he's doing. It's a pity he never wrote another one.

We also talk about Kingdom Hearts some more, give Florida the drubbing it deserves, and Mary makes some inroads into getting David to love isopods. Honestly, if you want any more than that, you're just being greedy. Give us your click already.

Hey... you into hot showers? No, not the ones from Urban Dictionary, you filthy little goofball. I'm talking about the giant meteorite that Xana sends hurtling toward the Earth in this episode of Code Lyoko. And it seems like only yesterday he was making food golems. How our little computer demon has grown!

Join Mary, David, Ben, and special guest Quinn as we recap it all as only we can (poorly). And if you were worried this would be the episode we finally stop cracking jokes about buttholes, you can breathe easy yet again.

It's real Lyoko hours! Who's ready for the episode that broke a million hearts (well, more like a couple dozen) back in twenty aught seven? Will Jim's long-rumored involvement in the making of Lyoko finally be confirmed, or will we get jokes about animal feces instead? I know which one I'm hoping for!

Come hear us bumble our way through yet another one of Lyoko's most infamous clunkers. Our final assessment may or may not surprise you! And if that's not your thing, then come to laugh at David instead. The f*ckin' weeb thought Death Cab for Cutie was an anime.

Replika is the most memorable episode of season four - we know, because for once, all three of us remembered what the darned thing is about. Odd/Aelita validation, Nicolas wearing human boy pants, and heretofore unprecedented levels of queenly sass await you in this morsel of an episode.

Join us yet again as we not only discuss Lyoko, but laugh at Ben for accidentally conflating Michael Cera and John Cena, which is quite possibly the funniest f*cking thing that's happened on the podcast so far, and also make jokes about a black hole that is also an anus.

Have you ever dug out a toy you loved as a child, only to find it dinky and unimpressive as an adult? This episode is one such toy. Much like Rise Kujikawa's omelette, it's brimming full of the ingredients we love, but comes out tasting like nothing regardless.

On the upside, we finally announce our upcoming project! I mean, we've been tacitly announcing it for months now, but this time it's official. Woo-hoo!

This is the episode where Jeremie gets his pea green and neon blue capris. We're sure other stuff happens in the episode, but we were too distracted by those godawful pants to notice or care. We advise you not to look directly at them for an extended period, as you will surely go blind or be turned into a pillar of salt.

But actually, a ton of stuff happens here. Like the delightful revelation that, in the world of Code Lyoko, the internet really is a series of tubes, or our in-depth discussion of whether it'd be fun to be a baby. There's also the time Sarah the Translation Shaman/Scientist schooled us about cellular biology. The details are too juicy to spoil here, but as is so often the case with us, they involve Jimmy Neutron.

Unspeakable Sex Acts broke up (for about a week), so no new episode today, guys. But Mary and David did take the time to read a whole bunch of your emails, so there is that!

That's right - we take a break from rambling about Homestuck and Smash Bros. and give YOU the floor to, er, ramble about Homestuck and Smash Bros. We know our audience, and our audience knows us.

So let us take you back to the year 2007, when Code Lyoko was still on the air, Carlos Mencia was making waves with his new strain of race-based comedy hijinks, and Steven Segal had not yet gone publicly insane.

Note: David has a few moments in this episode where his audio suddenly cuts out. I think I've fixed most of them, but let me know if you catch any more and I can see what I can do about them!

This episode was supposed to be a dramatic reading of Ben and Mary's old Code Lyoko crack fic. And it was! But then we decided we don't want to be associated with the thing anymore. We've grown up a lot in the past five years and we're no longer comfortable with many of the jokes that we once found hilarious. So instead of a whole lot of cringe, get ready for... well, a whole lot of cringe. But now it's about Smash Bros.

To make up for the lack of fanfic, we're opening up an extra hefty mailbag! Yu-Gi-Oh, Street Fighter II, Little Witch Academia, and an equation that turns you gay are but some of the topics we cover.

Not to yank our own dingdongs, but it isn't often that Code Lyoko and RttP are both in top form in the same episode. 

You want action, comedy, high-stakes middle school dramedy? Skidbladnir delivers. You wanna hear Mary, Ben, and David (but mostly Ben and David) break into an impromptu slapfight over Homestuck and wax nostalgic about the sticky horrors of puberty? Again, you've come to the right place.

Of course, we also eulogize every millennial's unofficial sensei, Stephen Hillenburg, who passed away on November 26. There isn't anything funny about that. But, in his honor, we've cranked the SpongeBob puns and references up to eleven. Happy trails, Ocean Man. You were number one.

Well, kids, here we are at the funny sex number. I bet you think that's a real laugh riot. You disgust me. (jk ilu)

Not only do we say a few things that'll fill you with the irrepressible urge to whisper 'Niiiiice!' to yourself; we also talk about silly cartoon characters with big heads. Oh, and Jess is here too! They make a few jokes about the dank kush, for your entertainment.

Anyway, this is the episode with Clone William. He make our kokoro go doki doki by holding various objects in kawaii ways. At least until he gets tired of being nice and goes ape sh*t.

Oh, and hey! No more royalty-free stock music for us! Let's give a warm welcome to the newest member of the RttP crew, Matt, who composed our hella tubular new theme song!

(This episode does contain a bit more talk about sex and weed than usual!)
