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?

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.
