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!

In this episode, shit gets dark as one character is forced to deal with a debilitating illness and the very real possibility that he'll never again be able to do the thing he loves most. It's handled with tact and care, and it's one of the things that make this show so grown-up for its demographic. There's also a space Olmec that flies around in a giant trombone, because this is still the Disney Channel.

 

This episode of Oban Star Racers carries a content warning for an alien species name that is identical to a UK-specific ableist slur. While we want to believe this wasn’t intentional, we will not use the name aloud on the podcast.

Sorry for the delay in getting this one up! Mary's laptop charger died on Monday night, so things were held up for a few days while a new one shipped. x.x
