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!

Nobody knows where the Crotch Thrust Kid came from. Some say we never will. But when there's a soccer game that needs cheering, or a purple shirt that needs wearing, he'll be there, ready to move.

We, too, are ready to go, as we've finally reached the point in the show when the episodes are reliably good (at least until Cartoon Network starts calling the shots, but we'll get there when we get there). In addition to pelvic thrusts, this RTTP episode features amputated toes, Sass Queen Aelita, and 200% more cats. We also make a couple of important announcements!

Welcome back to the Rec Room! Every ten episodes, we take a break from recapping the show to talk turkey about the fandom/culture around it (as you would know if you'd been paying attention. This'll be on the quiz).

In this episode, we review two Code Lyoko YouTube gems: the infamous (though possibly to nobody but us) Movie Quote Dub and the review by renowned cringelord Pan Pizza. We're also addressing one of our listeners' questions: if we could reboot the show, what would we do differently?

Also featured: awkwardly trying to remember things from Xiaolin Showdown, Ben plugging yet another adorable fanfic, and finding ways to make the show gayer than it ever was.

We're sorry to disappoint you guys, but in this episode we do not, in fact, make a SpongeBob reference. (We make Fairly Oddparents and Teenage Robot references instead.) Oh, and speaking of robots, that's what this week's Lyoko is about! And for your humble hosts, it's probably the most divisive episode so far...
