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 finally time for the episode everyone and their dog wanted to be on. Wait a minute... is CatDog an Avatar animal? Holy shit, I just thought of that literally right now. Nickelodeon Cinematic Universe confirmed! Anyway, Toph is in this one.
 
Our friend (and very first fan!) Dianna joins us to talk about Toph and why she's an excellent example of positive representation of a blind person. Wrasslin', masculinity, parenting and James Randi are also discussed. Not necessarily in that order.

Hey... u up, winky face emoji? It's the horniest-ever episode of The Avatar Recycle, featuring Avatar Kyoshi and her enormous feet! The fandom has long called Avatar Day one of the worst episodes of the show, second only to The Great Divide. But is it really as bad as all that?
 
Join the usual gang of idiots (plus Jess!) as we investigate! Enjoy such discoveries as the Sensitive Ruffian, elephant shrews, and well-oiled men with torches.
 
There is a small period of spoilers from 1:02:30-1:05:00, left in because we were being very funny.

Welcome back to The Avatar Recycle! Jess joins us yet again as we venture into fantasy Florida to meet some more smelly hippies and Toph, who is presumably also smelly.
 
Topics include cholera, a five-pound bag of Swedish Fish, man's ever-evolving quest to communicate with spinach, and the time Jess's dad found a dead body and poked it with a stick. That last part isn't true. The part about the stick, we mean.

In this episode, the still-incomplete Gaang literally rolls around in raw sewage. (You can do that figuratively by listening to our podcast.) And on that note, who's ready for a lot of jokes about plagues and contagion? Like, jeez, read the room, 2006. Am I right?
This episode also introduces us to Mai and Ty Lee, and just the many many ways Azula manipulates them horribly. Also - Mary is finally board-certified, David laughs about poop (yet again) and Ben reveals his tragic backstory. It involves emos.
As stated above, this episode carries a content warning for plague and contagion, albeit a fake one.

In this episode, we have two special treats for you: a new guest (welcome, Sigma!) and a link to a cool picture of a dragon we found on DeviantArt.

Also? A SPECTACULAR episode. Let's call that treat number three. So many things that give us joy are here. Unwashed hippies. Unsupervised uncles. Unrestrained summer (spring) fun. Unwieldy teenage kissing. It's a regular U-fest up ins.

It's another episode of The Avatar Recycle! Our hosts have managed to tear themselves away from the ongoing collapse of civilization to babble about magic cartoon teenagers for another couple of hours. This time, it's The Avatar State! Where is it, and why doesn't it have representation in Congress?
 
We're introduced to Azula, who is still an incredible villain - despite the fact that, to our aging hosts, she now looks babey. We are also left to linger on the concept of feet. Earthbender feet, that is, and something called "turf toe." You have been warned.

This episode of Avatar Recycle carries a content warning for description of animal mutilation of 30:45. As well as, uh, discussion of current events throughout.
