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? Follow us on Twitter at @rttppodcast, or send us your feedback at rttppodcast@gmail.com! Cover art by Ingram. Find more of their work at http://www.ingramcomix.com or @ingramcomix. Intro and outro is "XANA Rhapsody" by Matt of Avana Music! Find more of Matt's work at https://soundcloud.com/avanamusic.

At long last, Dat Boi here come for more than like 30 seconds. But, but that's all the time he needs to make Mary and Ben feel ashamed of themselves for having had crushes on him as children. (Meanwhile, David points and laughs and hugs his Vriska daikamura.)

Why? Because he's a scrub, which, as TLC taught us, is a guy who thinks he's fly and is also known as a buster. So today we're here to kick ass and dismantle his toxic notions of romantic gestures, AND WE'RE ALL OUT OF ASS.

We also discover what tractor pulling REALLY is, and accidentally and tragically remind ourselves of the existence of jenkem. Speaking of, around 1:10:00 we have a truly awful conversation with lots of, not profanity, but bathroom words and ideas. We are all very ashamed of ourselves.

After weeks of teasing, we're finally showing you the goods. How well does The Pretender hold up, actually? Does it fly high like a crow possessed, or buckle under the weight of its awkwardness and casual racism? Will David be validated, or stomp away in an impotent rage like a Waluigi fan after E3? The answer may shock you!

And speaking of Smash Bros, which characters would the Lyoko Warriors main? Are we childish enough to stop the show dead in its tracks to laugh at a fake used car ad and troll Ben's sweet mother with incomprehensible coolkid lingo? Well, you probably know the answer to one of those questions already. Tune in for the other one.

Cards on the table: this episode is roughly 50% plot and 50% stinky feet jokes. Which, fun fact, none of us actually remembered until we were about five minutes into the episode!

And the weirdest thing about that is, it's still just as poignant as we thought it was back then. It gives us a ton to think about as far as Aelita's relationship with her father and her memories of her past, a big moment of tension with her and Jeremie, and one of the greatest moments of emotional maturity Odd has ever exhibited. But also there's foot stink. Just all of it, all the jokes. 

(But don't worry too much about that - we're still making our OWN jokes! Including one that made Ben literally spit water all over his room.)

IN OTHER NEWS! You've heard us talk about this for months, but we're finally doing it! To celebrate the long-awaited release of Teen Titans Go! to the Movies (not really), we're doing RAFFLES RAFFLES RAFFLES! That's right, three Funimation Code Lyoko DVDs are up for grabs, and all you have to do for a chance to score that sweet, sweet loot is support us on Patreon. The cutoff date is August 31st, so hurry up and give us your money already!

"Note that you must be at least eighteen years old to participate (y'know, in case a few frames of Ben's orc fan film snuck in by mistake), and also be comfortable giving us your mailing address.
