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!

Every once in a while, we get an episode where the writers clearly didn't give a f*ck. This is one of those episodes. Now, being discerning and sophisticated consumers of media, we normally crinkle our noses at that kind of thing, but this time's a little different. Like a Flash cartoon hastily made by a lolrandom teen on Albinoblacksheep (anybody remember that?), sometimes a total unwillingness to give even a single f*ck can lead to great things.

This is an episode where Jim strongly implies that he once wrote a porno. An episode where an old woman challenges Yumi to gamble for drugs. An episode where the theater teacher complains that Kadic's anemic budget forces them to constantly reuse sets, which I can't imagine isn't a metaphor for Code Lyoko itself. It's like there was some kind of passive-aggressive slapfight in the MoonScoop office immediately prior to making this episode, and we are so there for it, because we are drama b*tches and make no apologies for it.
