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?

We return to our regularly scheduled programming this week with part one of the non-two-parter two-part finale. Here, you'll finally learn the Big Secret we've been spoiling relentlessly since we started this whole ridiculous enterprise, so please act surprised!

As our first post-McElboy episode, we have an extra hefty mailbag to sift through, as well as ridiculously cool fight scenes, awful looking mashed potatoes, and one of the more harrowing near-deaths in CL history.

Note before we start: We are experimenting with making the Rec Rooms explicit-rated which in this case just means we don't bleep out the swears. Be on the lookout for some HECKIN ROUGH LANGUAGE.

It's time to take a break from high-octane (for a certain value of "high-octane") Lyoko action and just shoot the breeze for a little while. Call it the calm before the storm that the two-part season finale represents. We tell stories about our experiences with Code Lyoko fandom, argue about our favorite eras of Cartoon Network, and talk about the time Mark Hamill went from hanging out with a gay robot to playing one on adult swim. We also bite down hard on a juicy interview with Sophie Decroisette that contradicts everything you thought you knew about Code Lyoko! Well, maybe.

And hey, what's this? We put an ad out on a slightly more popular podcast? You'd better believe it! If you're a McElboy fan, here for the first time, welcome! And, er, you might wanna start with literally any other episode. This one's kind of a cluster.

Nah, but we kid, this episode is good. The plot keeps thickening and the characters keep making the same kind of nonsensical, boneheaded decisions we've come to love them for. We poke a lot of fun at them, but there was a point in our lives when this was as serious as it got for us. Ah, to be slightly younger again!
