Hello everyone!

Despite the years that have passed since the end of the cartoon, Code Lyoko continues to be appreciated by many as a quality cartoon and a nostalgic childhood memory.
This is why a YouTube channel that creates videos themed on cartoons has leaned towards our baby. The channel is called Channel|Frederator and its thematic videos are based and titled on the theme "107 Facts You Should Know About...".

As the model becomes more and more popular on YouTube, the channel creates videos about cartoons and asks its subscribers to propose the subject of the next video in the comments.
And so, after numerous requests from the English-speaking audience, on the 10th of May, the channel finally released "107 Facts You Should Know About Code Lyoko".


A number of things resonated with us in this video:
- Firstly, this video paints the history of Code Lyoko across the board: its origins, sources of inspiration, Code Lyoko, Code Lyoko Evolution, the actors, goodies, community life, etc... The video leads us in a very nostalgic thematic cruise that will revive a lot of small memories linked to the series.
Evidently, however, if you're a really dedicated fan and have followed and read this entire website, you'll learn next to nothing...

- ...despite our decades of research and writing, the author(s) managed to find facts or supply analyses on certain points that we've never touched on CodeLyoko.fr. There aren't many of them, but nonetheless: hats off to you!
Still should be noted that there are some errors among the 107 facts (like point 15 for example, showing Evolution concept sketches while discussing the Garage Kids concept art).

- We note the mention, throughout the 107 facts, of projects that our site hosts or is partners with. One good homage is given to Immu's IFSCL, our fantranslation project of the Code Lyoko Chronicles receives a good report (What about Keppsa's one...?) and our cosplayers from old Japan Expos are also given a mention.

- Also, we regrettably see a few redundancies in these facts. Indeed, some of the more repetitive facts could have been combined with others, allowing for funnier ones to take their place (like the parallel between the Subsonics and the trio of éminence grises from the series.)

- Finally, we enormously appreciate seeing the creators of the video have used CL.fr as a source of information: some facts directly concern the site's projects, and their pages appear in the video. Notably our file on the differences between the scripts and episodes! (And by the way, the season 1 pages have now been translated into English! Go check them out!)
Though we regret the absence of any credit to us in the end, we can clearly see that for some facts, some drawings from our artists (requested to illustrate our files) appear in the video. This is extremely gratifying for all the people who have worked on the site at any level (office and workshop!) to see that years after, our work continues to serve people and the site retains its role of the most complete and rich encyclopaedia on the series, despite being fanmade on a volunteer basis.

Well, I've said enough. Enjoy the video!
