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!

This time it is David who will not be with us for this one, and Jess who will rise to the occasion and take his place as we take on a SURPRISINGLY intense ATLA episode! All the more so for Mary, because she never saw it the first time round.

What does that mean for you all? A whole lot of well deserved slamming on Heart of Darkness, the secrets of Ben's clown heritage, Aang's best Cornholio impression, and so, so many stories about cats.

Content warnings for discussions of racism and colonialism. As well as cat poop, and spoilers for Death Note.

This episode is all about trust, in the sense that it betrayed ours by being kinda crappy and on-the-nose, as well as having uncomfortable sexual undertones. And speaking of that, watch us revive old Homestuck memes you hoped to never see again! (At least Sokka gets to be smart in this one.)

The Super Nuclear Group would also like to remind our fellow dirty, smelly Yanks to vote, vote, vote! For Joe Biden if at all possible, or failing that, for the D next to his name. We love Joe Biden's D. Can't get enough of it, really.

We also talk Simpsons, Machine of Death, and Reylos, who are all a bunch of [VERY LOVELY PEOPLE].

(Also, apologies for the delay getting this one up - it's been a busy week! Also also, Mary is indeed okay - my coughing stopped shortly after the episode ended and it hasn't come back!)

This is one of those cartoon episodes that tries to be about faith vs. empiricism, but in a way that doesn't piss off any homeschool moms and/or the ACLU. Surprisingly, it doesn't suck, and in fact taught us a very valuable lesson. It taught us what platypuses eat. (It's pebbles and small mollusks, apparently.)
 
Join us as we discuss our favorite flowers, poke some well-deserved fun at the British, an exhibit an appreciation for Aunt Wu that, at times, pokes a toe over the line into low-key thirst.

In this episode, the role of Ben is played by our good friend Jess, but don't worry, we're definitely not classing up the joint! Much merriment is had discussing the rare and elusive Sugondese frogs. (Would you suck on them? Tell us in the comments!) We also discover that the crazy old people of the Avatar universe are a lot less racist than ours.
