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!

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.
