Welcome to your new favorite thread!



Teen Titans GO, like Teen Titans from way back in 2003, is a show based on the titular DC superhero team made up of Robin, Cyborg, Starfire, Beast Boy and Raven.
Unlike Teen Titans from way back in 2003, however, this show abandons the heavy focus on continuity, serious storytelling and teenie drama for a more lighthearted show filled with reckless humor, bold colors, songs and silly stories with no regard towards anything the previous might have stood for. And it's pure, unbridled fun.
Season 3! 100+ episodes! Here we go!




The Cast


Robin is the leader of the Team Titans. And he REALLY wants everyone to know. He takes is job way too seriously and becomes a bumbling mess when things don't go his way. He's also a huge dork with too much self esteem, as he shows off his sweet staff nijitsu skills to random people and keeps half naked pictures of himself on his computer.
(VA: Scott Menville)


Cyborg is the "computer guy" of the Titans and, well, a cyborg. He usually hangs out with Beast Boy or builds stuff. Despite him being the party guy and tank of the team, he's actually a huge nerd about outdated technology, old series and other stuff no one cares about, and will not hesitate to engage goon mode on the entire team if he thinks it's necessary.
(VA: Khary Payton)


Starfire is actually a princess from a faraway planet and still hasn't quite settled in. She often has problems getting used to Earth customs and causes confusion. She also gets easily entertained, you could probably distract her by jiggling your car keys. Her powers include flying, laserbeams from her eyes and believing anything Beast Boy tells her.
(VA: Hynden Walch)


Beast Boy is a green guy who can turn into animals.
(VA: Greg Cipes)


Raven fires sarcasm, disinterest and indifference 24/7. She gets easily annoyed by her teammates and prefers to read or watch Pretty Little Pegasus by her lonesome. She's also the daughter of Satan or something.
(VA: Tara Strong)




The "Story"

There really isn't a story to speak of. Each episode might have a plot, but it's self-contained and usually about the Teen Titans messing around in their spare time. A surprising number of episodes actually ends with the Titans dying, or at the very least something irredeemable.
Considering Teen Titans is a show about superheroes, there's actually very little superhero-ing done (cept that one time where Robin rids all crime), and I'm pretty sure they've done well more harm to the city than anyone else in the show.




The Sights

Although Teen Titans Go's art style is more simplified compared to it's predecessor, it looks just great. The colors are supercharged, the designs are crisp and everything is colorful. It's like gluing fairydust to your retinas. The backgrounds look distinctive, palettes perfectly handpicked and the show features some of the sweetest typography I've ever seen in a cartoon, it's plain gorgeous. Teen Titans also is probably one of the best stops when you need amazing faces. There's no end to the amazing faces in Teen Titans GO.




The Numbers
Contrary to what people might tell you, Teen Titans Go! is actually doing really well. And I mean REALLY well. It consistently ranked as not only Cartoon Network's most popular show, but also as the #1 show for children of the age 6-11. They aren't calling it "Your new favorite show" for nothing.



Also this show brought us this sweet Trigon plush so that's pretty neat!

Looking around the web it's amazing how much hate this show has for not being "serious" enough. Alot of people really just want it to fail because they feel Young Justive was cancelled because of it and they're just against the very concept of a completely silly DC show.

It's a shame, but I'm glad the show still gets enough support for (at least) another season.
I just feel kind of bad for the staff of the show. They were really excited about bringing the Titans back, and had crazy fun working towards the show. You kept hearing the VAs talk about how fun the recording sessions were and how excited they are to have the fans see episodes they personally like.
They must be getting a lot of complaints and downright hate from the same people who praised them from the beginning of the previous show up until now.

If anyone here is going to attend an anime convention soon, do the thread a favor, find some Teen Titans cosplayers, walk up to them and ask, "Oh hey, is that Teen Titans Go cosplay?"

I am giddy at the possibilities being presented by this premise. #SaveYoungJustice

For some reason, for the first few seconds I assumed this was a normal superhero cartoon then the computer rejected Robin's voice command and I remembered this show is so much more.

Edit: Updating the OP with essentials:

After a tiny break, the final episode of the first season of Teen Titans Go airs this Wednesday! There's no preview, but it's a Christmas episode and will prominently feature Starfire's gullibility, so you can't go wrong with that!

Jesus how can a robot be so adorable and horrifying at the same time?

Anyway, this episode was interesting from a storyboard perspective; an important part of dialogue is being able to express different things by saying the same line in different manners; just saying "waffles" in that case is pretty much masterclass for that exercise.

I really want a gif of Painbot shrugging but I still refuse to look up Teen Titans on tumblr. Then again, they probably wouldn't have it anyway. Also I'm glad Staff-Beatbox is still a thing.

^^ I loved how Cyborg immediately stopped rooting for Painbot as soon as he lost. I guess that's the flip side of those competitions.

The only thing more satisfying than the ending is that you know everything will be normal again by the next episode. Also, points for Killer Moth for just straight up dropping Silkie instead of waiting to get beat up.

These are all exact things from last year, though Greg was wearing a mouse onesie and nothing else. Oh and everyone danced at several points.

Goddamn I'll probably watch the whole thing actually last year it was nice hearing Robin's VA say he got some crazy lines sometimes and how much fun he had with that and now it's gone to the point where they actively write Robin to suit his VA better.

Didn't he rap at one point, with mixmaster mike backing him up?
Also that crossover is gonna be fantastic.

His behavior was a lot like Jason Todd, although his costume seemed a lot like Tim Drake. Definitely not Damian Wayne, though. What's funny is that the regular robin seemed to be dick Grayson (especially since he's night wing in the future) yet we clearly had the original robin, and that we already saw Jason Todds ashes. Really grim in retrospect.
