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.

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.

This episode of Code Lyoko carries a content warning for exotification of Native Americans. Discussion of this in the podcast episode starts at around 1:11:00 and ends at around 1:15:00.

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. [Editor's note: the black hole anus joke was removed for being too powerful.]
