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!

Ah, the chase: a cartoon tradition. Tom chases Jerry, Sylvester chases Tweety, and in tonight's presentation, the Gaang is chased by a bunch of girls. Which I guess makes this more like the Avatar version of A Hard Day's Night (ask your grandma, zoomer).
 
Our friend Gabe is here to bring the funny while Ben is away. Join us as we discuss such questions as: do sky bison reproduce by budding? If you poop in the spirit world, do you also poop in real life? And how fast does Iroh need to be going to keep up with Zuko, who is in turn keeping up with a train?

Time for Zuko Alone, Avatar's cowboy episode! In lieu of Ben, we're joined once again by Quinn! (And no, we didn't eat Ben when we were all stranded on that raft in the middle of the ocean, no matter what the federales say.) Prepare for advanced Jaden Smith discussion, stinky piles o' poo, and the startling revelation that in the Avatar universe, bacon and eggs come from the same animal.
 
This episode of The Avatar Recycle contains a content warning for discussion of slavery in video games at 1:15:00.
