Super Nuclear Presents

Remember the cartoons you loved as a kid? Do you, like us, remember mid-2000s Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network with a mix of fondness and terror – or, if you don’t, do you want to know what the fuss was about? Join Mary, David, and Ben as we revisit the cartoons that shaped us in an episode-by-episode deep dive, as well as the Internet fan culture as it was then and is now. How do these nostalgic shows hold up? What do we think of them now, as not kids but sad adults? How has the zeitgeist and Internet following evolved along with us? We set out to answer these questions and also to be incredibly hilarious and physically attractive. We started in 2017 with Return to the Past: A Code Lyoko Retrospective, which ran from 2017-2019 and makes up the first part of this feed. Second was The Ultimate Reprise, which ran from 2019-2020 and covers Oban: Star Racers. Now we’re on The Avatar Recycle, hot on the heels of Avatar: The Last Airbender’s Netflix debut! Join us wheresoever you like. Watching along is not necessary - but highly encouraged – and we try to keep spoiler free up to the current episode!

Is this Code Lyoko's first real clunker? Mary and Ben say yes, David says maybe. Join us as we meet famed American film director James Finson (we know he's American because he's fat) and discuss Freudian interpretations of slimy alien drool. Oh, and there's also some more nonsense about Bruce Willis.

Please note that Return to the Past no longer has a "Clean" rating. Still gonna bleep out swears though. It's like a middle ground.

In this episode, XANA completely blindsides the entire Lyoko Gang by attempting to impersonate a human being and doing remarkably poor work of it, despite completely fooling the group up until the very last moment. But then, why does he drive an emotional wedge in the group in the first place, when he could do so many more destructive things? Is XANA a cold and calculating being, always trying new plans when the old ones don't work, or is he angry and vengeful, forever trying to hurt the Warriors? Or is he just a dumb computer program? The answer unfortunately is that it's really inconsistent and we just don't know. 

Anyway, here's Image Problem, the episode where a Yumi clone tries to get her mack on with Jeremie and also some other stuff happens! (And it's the first writing credit for Mary's personal hero for this series, Bruno Regeste.) We'd also like to welcome you to our auxiliary podcast-within-a-podcast, Return to the Gotta Blast - An Adventures of Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius Retrospective.

At long last, the first truly great episode of Code Lyoko arrives! (Unfortunately, this episode of RTTP is no less terrible than the rest.) THRILL as Jeremie and Aelita exchange G-rated double entendres! GAPE as David cracks up Ben and Mary with jokes that would get groans in a kindergarten classroom! BEHOLD as we barrel down weird tangents about juggalos!

Caution: contains awkward references to the capital-P Problematic late seventies sitcom Diff'rent Strokes.

What does XANA have in common with Skynet (well, other than the ridiculously obvious, we mean)? What do Ben's nipples have in common with Smash Mouth's hit single, All-Star? And which of our humble hosts has the cutest dimples? Tune in to episode five to find out!
