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!

In this episode, the former half of our very first two-parter, Iroh gets naked, Aang wrestles a bear, and the Super Nuclear Group waxes poetic about America's two favorite underdogs: Jeb Bush and Scrappy Doo! Think we can't prattle about this for three straight hours? Click and be amazed!

Hey, remember that one funny meme where Live-Action Aang reminds a group of earthbenders that they are earthbenders? And then they do a choreographed dance routine that results in a single baseball-sized rock to float slowly across the screen? This is the episode that scene was based on. Surprise! It's much better with funny cartoon people.

Another thing the live-action movie didn't have: George Takei! Here, he features as a prison warden who sounds exactly like Vincent Price. Or maybe George Takei always sounds like that.

Hello, everyone! This is the first episode of what will from here on be a Patreon-exclusive podcast for donors at the $5 and up level! We hope you enjoy this trip into the glory that is SBT!

Long ago, in 2010, Cartoon Network gave us something very special: a new Genndy Tartakovsky show, in their classic house style of the mid to late nineties. It may have been overshadowed by the shows with the stretchy dog and the hipster bluebird, but Sym-Bionic Titan was something special. And then, when the world needed it most, they canceled it.

Join us as we recap the best darn fusion of John Hughes and giant mecha anime that Cartoon Network ever swept under the rug. The story of an alien princess, her bodyguard, their robot buddy, and a hat that may or may not be evil in a quadrangle of trouble.

Along the way, Ben accidentally convinces David that Little Caesar's is banned in New York, David accidentally convinces Mary that Popeye is owned by the Kinks, and Michael accidentally believes he is allowed in the bookshelf.

===

A quick note on TAR Episode 4: The expression "X has two hands" refers only to holding hands, and is not a euphemism for anything else. We apologize for the confusion.

This episode is all about King [NAME REDACTED]. But we're not supposed to say his name. We say it dozens of times anyway. And no, for once, it's not K*maeda.

But we don't just laugh at our own incompetence. We also laugh at silly internet videos, pausing only to groan at some puns. And somewhere in there, there's some Avatar discussion too.

This episode takes the Gaang to Kyoshi Island, where Sokka learns respect-women-bending from cool new character Suki. Longtime friend of the show Jess joins us yet again to discuss this and other topics tangentially related to grrrl powah, including: skipping your school's water park trip to watch Avatar, air nomad tourists with fanny packs and floral print robes, Swears for the Classy Gent, and the saga of Dave, the lazy painter of Kyoshi Island.

===

This episode carries a content warning for discussion of transphobia at 1:27:00. Spoilers are also present at 2:11:00.
