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.

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!

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.
