This is the recap page for Atomic Puppet, a 2016 animated superhero series from Teletoon that also airs on Disney XD. It centers on the comedic, crimefighting adventures of the eponymous superhero duo, which is made of AP, an egotistical talking sock puppet who is in fact the superhero Captain Atomic rendered powerless by a Baleful Polymorph, and Joey Felt, a 12-year-old fanboy of Captain Atomic who can reactivate Captain Atomic's old superpowers by putting AP on his hand.


The episodes are listed in production order.
