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!

It's the first season break, and you know what that means: statistics (oh boy)! Join us as we once again consider the SNA, read some Avatar comics, and talk about Shrek. Jess is here, so you know this one's a keeper.

It's the season one finale, and Avatar has officially come into its own, like a caterpillar tadpole coming out of its cocoon as a beautiful butterfrog. That's good news, provided that you like hearing three ostensible adults freak out about cartoons.
 
We cover all the bases: Zuko's gradual de-villainization, Ben realizing that the Undertale meme skeletons are fonts, Spirit World shenanigans, Diddy's Kong Quest, when exactly a dying Jedi becomes intangible, Azula, cats, Handsome Squidward and more!
 
Also: we have officially debuted our brand spankin' new Super Nuclear Group logo! Visit us on Twitter and/or Discord to see for yourself.

Good news, everyone! We heard your complaint about there not being enough year-end holidays and have magnanimously decided that December 8th is Super Nuclear Day. You may curry favor with our traditional mascots, the Super Alpaca and Gnuclear Gnome, by supporting us on Patreon. Good fortune is sure to follow.

In this episode, Katara does some badass stuff, Zhao does some bad stuff (and is an ass), and we talk about a horrible nightmare we all had were M. Night Shyamalan made a terrible movie based on this awesome cartoon. We also talk about Hades, laugh at superstitious yokels, and look at the single worst tweet ever made by anyone, ever.

Apologies for the wait, everyone! Moving and life got in the way but we are BACK!

Welcome back to The Avatar Recycle, the show where we talk about our cats and then, if we have time, Avatar. In this episode, Mary moves down the street, Ben moves across the country, and David stays right the fuck where he is, because in an ever-changing world, it's nice to have a little stability. You're welcome.

It's the first part of the two-part season finale, wherein our merry gang of goofuses travels to the north pole to fight sexism. Iroh sings, Zuko dies, Wakko packs away the snacks, and there is a very real chance that your dad isn't actually your dad.
