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. Then we started on The Avatar Recycle, hot on the heels of Avatar: The Last Airbender’s Netflix debut - and now, after a 2.5-year hiatus, we're back with Titan Talk, covering the 2003 Teen Titans animated series! 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!

In everyone's favorite Season 1 episode, Raven is subjected to too many puns and goes grimdark, prompting Beast Boy and Cyborg to venture into the Hot Topic dimension to save her.

While there, they encounter not one Raven, but several! Including Finger Guns Raven, a staple of forum avatars in the mid-noughties, but not including Lust Raven, who DOES exist - they saved her for the tie-in comics. Cyborg and Beast Boy help her fight her dad, who may or may not qualify as an orc (Ben has opinions), they all grow closer for it, and meanwhile Starfire and Robin... watch TV.

This episode carries a content warning for a discussion of rape in the DC comics universe between the 9:00-10:30 time stamps. It's come to our attention that we were wrong about the details, but the broad strokes are correct. More information is available on the character's Wikipedia page.

Today, Titan Talk goes out and touches grass! Come join us for a brief interlude at the park, followed by a much longer interlude in a hole at the dump.

Points of curiosity: fine dijon mustard, five and a half pounds of baby back ribs, a nostalgic look back at Obama "scandals," and Tom Kenny in a dual role as a magical blue guy and another, less magical blue guy. And yes, we are sure it's actually him this time.

Apologies for all the coughing, by the way - David and Mary were both sick when we recorded! We hope we were able to delete most of them but there were some that were talked over that we couldn't take out. (We're feeling much better!)
