Trivia

Zuko was one of the last characters to be written into the show. The Fire Lord was meant to be the shows main antagonist, but the writers realized he would not be able to cause Aang and his friends trouble sitting from his throne. Zuko was then written into the show. See more »

Goofs

The design of the white lotus tile changes through the course of the series. The first design is shown in the Book 1 episode "The Waterbending Scroll", when Iroh holds up the tile he finds in his sleeve. The second design is seen in the Book 2 episode "The Desert", when Iroh makes the first move in the game. (The old man that Iroh is playing against confirms it is the white lotus.) Then, in the Book 3 episode "Sokka's Master", the tile given to Sokka by the butler more closely resembles the first design. See more »

Quotes

Katara: [opening narration] Water... Earth... Fire... Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.

A show that could surpass Cartoon Network's Samurai Jack.
16 April 2005 | by (Cleveland) – See all my reviews

When I saw the previews of this show, I knew that it was going to be something unique. When I first watched this show, I knew that Nick had something going. I only hoped that they would continue it and keep it fresh. So far, Nick has done it perfectly.

Avatar: The Last Airbender is Nick's newest show where they took a sudden left turn from traditional American comedy Cartoons into something similar to DC's Teen Titans and Cartoon Network's Samurai Jack. A series anime show with some laughs mixed in while the world literally is on the brink of destruction.

So far, Nick has outdone themselves this time and if they can keep it up, Nick is going to have a brand new name for itself.
