JAW DROPPED! Really incredible work you're doing! I really wish more people would know the names of the people behind their favourite cartoons apart from the writer names.

Aang died after 75-ish years after the end of The last Airbender making him around his eighties. He probably had him when he was around 20-30. Then add Korra's age in the mix, also don't forget that When one Avatar dies the other is born right after so he can't be alive in any possible way and he was the last airbender at the time so yeah it's the only explanation

Let me clear that up. The show takes place 70 years after the first show ended. The new Avatar is 17 which means that Aang died when he was 66.

LOL Brilliant! :D This scene was so beautifully done - and seriously, I don't know if I have ever scene a female lead in animation with so much character and personality. You guys have really made something special I think.

I loved this scene... but then there aren't any not to love.

Show is so damn good in so many ways; animation quality, fight choreography, story, artistic vision, humor, sheer magnetism (charm) of the characters... masterful creation on every level. :clap: Socks rocked to pieces.

BE THE LEAFFFFFFF.

I love how it's become such a popular tagline with Avatar fans, even more so that it's a play on Bruce Lee's "Be like water"

Loved this scene! Each kid is like one of Aang's Personalities, I love listening to them. And then Tenzin balances it with his seriousness like Sokka used to :')
This show is amazing I wish it was airing in Australia not just America.
Also amazing work! Keep it up :D
