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 an ...

It's that time again kids!! This month we do two for one commentary tracks.

We've reached the midpoint of season two, and with that, the midpoint of the whole show! This is a good time for us to take a little break from internet radio silliness (more on that in the episode), but first, here's Mary, David, and Jess talking owls and Kongsonas (also in the episode, obviously). === As mentioned above, Super Nuclear Group will …
 
I'm super sorry for the lateness of putting this on the main feed - I hadn't realized I hadn't scheduled it while I was waiting for the summary to come in. Thank you for your patience and look forward to The Library soon! === Welcome to Bitter Work (fun fact: that's what "kung fu" actually means!), an episode that's mostly about Sokka being stuck i…

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 questi…

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, b…

It's finally time for the episode everyone and their dog wanted to be on. Wait a minute... is CatDog an Avatar animal? Holy shit, I just thought of that literally right now. Nickelodeon Cinematic Universe confirmed! Anyway, Toph is in this one. Our friend (and very first fan!) Dianna joins us to talk about Toph and why she's an excellent example of…

Hey... u up, winky face emoji? It's the horniest-ever episode of The Avatar Recycle, featuring Avatar Kyoshi and her enormous feet! The fandom has long called Avatar Day one of the worst episodes of the show, second only to The Great Divide. But is it really as bad as all that? Join the usual gang of idiots (plus Jess!) as we investigate! Enjoy suc…

Welcome back to The Avatar Recycle! Jess joins us yet again as we venture into fantasy Florida to meet some more smelly hippies and Toph, who is presumably also smelly. Topics include cholera, a five-pound bag of Swedish Fish, man's ever-evolving quest to communicate with spinach, and the time Jess's dad found a dead body and poked it with a stick.…
 
In this episode, the still-incomplete Gaang literally rolls around in raw sewage. (You can do that figuratively by listening to our podcast.) And on that note, who's ready for a lot of jokes about plagues and contagion? Like, jeez, read the room, 2006. Am I right? This episode also introduces us to Mai and Ty Lee, and just the many many ways Azula …

In this episode, we have two special treats for you: a new guest (welcome, Sigma!) and a link to a cool picture of a dragon we found on DeviantArt. Also? A SPECTACULAR episode. Let's call that treat number three. So many things that give us joy are here. Unwashed hippies. Unsupervised uncles. Unrestrained summer (spring) fun. Unwieldy teenage kissi…
 
It's another episode of The Avatar Recycle! Our hosts have managed to tear themselves away from the ongoing collapse of civilization to babble about magic cartoon teenagers for another couple of hours. This time, it's The Avatar State! Where is it, and why doesn't it have representation in Congress? We're introduced to Azula, who is still an incred…

Ho! Ho! Ho! This month we are commentating on two, count 'em TWO Christmas episodes from the best animated shows of our youth. The first is The Real Ghostbusters (S1: Ep. 13) "Xmas Marks the Spot", and then we finish with Batman: The Animated Series (S1: Ep. 38) "Christmas with the Joker". Thank you so much for supporting the show and we couldn't d…
 
It's the first season break, and you know what that means: statistics (oh boy)! Join us as we once again consider the SNA, read some Avatar comics, and talk about Shrek. Jess is here, so you know this one's a keeper. === Click here to see the pacu, the herbivorous piranha! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacu Click here for Avatar The Last Airbender:…
 
It's the season one finale, and Avatar has officially come into its own, like a caterpillar tadpole coming out of its cocoon as a beautiful butterfrog. That's good news, provided that you like hearing three ostensible adults freak out about cartoons. We cover all the bases: Zuko's gradual de-villainization, Ben realizing that the Undertale meme ske…

Good news, everyone! We heard your complaint about there not being enough year-end holidays and have magnanimously decided that December 8th is Super Nuclear Day.

Apologies for the wait, everyone! Moving and life got in the way but we are BACK! Welcome back to The Avatar Recycle, the show where we talk about our cats and then, if we have time, Avatar.

Donald Trump slowly shrinks and transforms into a corn cob. Ben's mother humiliates him in front of the host of Nickelodeon's Slime Time Live. David crushes his own mother's dreams of being a showbiz mom. Mary roasts her dad's exceptionally dadly qualities. And on Avatar, some kid has to cope with the fact that his dad is in bed with the fantasy re…
 
This time it is David who will not be with us for this one, and Jess who will rise to the occasion and take his place as we take on a SURPRISINGLY intense ATLA episode! All the more so for Mary, because she never saw it the first time round. What does that mean for you all? A whole lot of well deserved slamming on Heart of Darkness, the secrets of …
 
This episode is all about trust, in the sense that it betrayed ours by being kinda crappy and on-the-nose, as well as having uncomfortable sexual undertones. And speaking of that, watch us revive old Homestuck memes you hoped to never see again! (At least Sokka gets to be smart in this one.) The Super Nuclear Group would also like to remind our fel…

This is one of those cartoon episodes that tries to be about faith vs. empiricism, but in a way that doesn't piss off any homeschool moms and/or the ACLU. Surprisingly, it doesn't suck, and in fact taught us a very valuable lesson. It taught us what platypuses eat. (It's pebbles and small mollusks, apparently.) Join us as we discuss our favorite fl…
