Top 10 Stand-Alone Teen Titans Episodes

Welcome to another list I've put together. A year and a half ago, I made a journal where I reviewed each of the story arcs from each season of the original "Teen Titans", all of which were awesome, especially the Season 4 arc. Back in October, on "Underrated Episodes", I reviewed "Only Human", one of my favorite episodes of the show and one of the most underrated. Doing that gave me an idea to do a list where I talk about my favorite stand-alone episodes of "Teen Titans". It really is about time I give some stand-alone, non-arc episodes their due. Let's get to the list!
10. CRASH - This is quite possibly the funniest episode of the entire show, in my opinion. Cyborg's system catches a virus, which causes him to go crazy and go on a feeding rampage all over the city, and it is a riot all the way through. So much crazy stuff happens with Robin, Raven, and Starfire chasing him all across town, and the scenes with Beast Boy and Gizmo trying to fix Cyborg's system kept things interesting. "

Teen Titansis a hit American cartoon television series based on the popular DC Comics characters. It has been known as one of Cartoon Network's darker shows, with good reason. The show was created by Glen Murakami, developed by David Slack, and produced by Warner Bros. Animation. It premiered on Cartoon Network on July 19, 2003within first airdate on "Divide and Conquer". Despite being significantly acclaimed by fans, the series shut down production after five seasons, with the series finale episode "Things Change" airing on January 16, 2006. Two comic book titles from DC Comics, Teen Titans Go! (ended) and Tiny Titans (current), are based on the series. Many characters, scenarios and themes were drawn from the 1980s DC Comics series The New Teen Titans. The show can be seen on Cartoon Network's sister channel Boomerang sometimes.

Series run

Teen Titans is based primarily on the stories told in the early-80s The New Teen Titans comic book franchise.

The show tells the adventures of the teen crime-fighting group called the Teen Titans, featuring Robin, Raven, Starfire, Beast Boy and Cyborg (in order of prominence in the series).

While it is an action cartoon, the series is also heavily character-driven, with a focus on the main characters’ struggles with being superheroes, their mutual friendships/relationships, and their limitations. A major difference between the animated series and the comic book is that while the comic portrayed the characters as being in their late teens to early 20s (resulting in the comic series at one point even dropping the word Teen from its title to reflect its older characters), the animated series characters are all depicted as being in their teen years and young adult (supposedly 14-16 and others 16-18, 17-19).

Seasons two and four are based upon two of the most popular New Teen Titans arcs, "Judas Contract" and "Terror of Trigon" respectively. Many characters from the comics, though most of them heavily reworked, appear throughout the show, especially in the final season.

The group's base of operations is a large self-built T-shaped structure that combines living quarters, a command center, training/workout facilities, and hangar/garage space. It sits on an island just offshore from a fictional city called Jump City (though the exact location is never directly stated in any episode, it is obviously in the United States of America, and is supposedly somewhere near Gotham City, a fact which is also never said in both the show and the comics, but merely supposed). At the end of the third season, a second team of Titans come together in Steel City, called the Titans East, residing in a T-building identical to the original, except positioned on a cliff by the sea (no doubt for Aqualad).

Teen Titans frequently uses self-referential humor, and its animation style is heavily influenced by Japanese anime. Throughout the series, the opening theme song of the show alternates between the English and Japanese versions, which are both sung by the Japanese pop duo "Puffy AmiYumi". Andrea Romano revealed in a Season 3 DVD featurette that if the opening is sung in Japanese, it indicates that the episode is intended to be silly and funny, while the English opening indicates the episode is aimed to be dark and more serious (with the exception of the episode "Nevermore").

In mid-November 2005, TitansTower.com reported that prospects for a sixth season were looking extremely unlikely, and fans were urged to express their support for the show to Cartoon Network. Several days after this initial posting, word came that Cartoon Network had officially terminated the show. According to the actor who provided the voice of Aqualad, the series was terminated by new Warner Bros. Feature Animation executives who made the decision not to renew the series based on its sixth season pitch. Wheaton's story was contradicted by series story editor Rob Hoegee who stated that the decision came from Cartoon Network, not WB, being that there were never any plans for a sixth season. Layoffs at WB studios in late 2005 were also speculated to be a factor in the cancellation.

After the series finale, Warner Bros. Animation announced a feature film called Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo. The film premiered at and was shown on Cartoon Network first on September 15, 2006. The DVD was released on February 6, 2007.

The series had been on a rerun Boomerang (a sister channel to Cartoon Network) in the 10:30pm time slot on weekdays since February 2, 2009.

Revivals

  • In 2012, it was announced that there would be a new animated series of Teen Titans called Teen Titans, Go!, The series is much lighter compared to the earlier Teen Titans series, focusing more on comedy than action. The series premiered Tuesday, April 23, 2013. Teen Titans, Go! was universally panned by fans due to lacking the seriousness and action the original Teen Titans embraced.
  • In 2016 and 2017, Warner Home Entertainment released two movies containing the characters, Justice League vs. The Teen Titans and Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, which are geared towards the mature audiences due to having much heavier themes including violence, language, and sensuality, as both are given the PG-13 rating.

Comeback

In Thursday, August 3rd, 2017 after 5 years Cartoon Network has brung back Teen Titans. From 6-7 a.m. and since the airings have increased, with Cartoon Network evening airing Teen Titans "Apprentice" part one and two. Now they are back to being gone.

Ye Olde CN Games - Teen Titans: One-On-One

Adored By The Network / Teen Titans Go!

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ttgsched3.png

The schedule is from the 2017 holiday season

Teen Titans Go!, the comedy half of the DC Nation lineup, fell into this rather fast and quickly became the new SpongeBob SquarePantsin terms of overexposure. Unsurprisingly, this led to it becoming one of Cartoon Network's most popular shows. By 2015, ratings were extraordinarily high, often surpassing that of Nickelodeon and Disney Channel. So of course the network went on to give it lots of attention. Later on, it became something of the default "filler" show whenever there wasn't a new episode of another series (which is quite often) or when Adult Swim wasn't on, quickly pushing other popular shows except The Amazing World of Gumball (and even that's debatable) off the schedule almost completely (resulting in a few such as Uncle Grandpa and Clarence being unceremoniously cancelled due to poor ratings, spawning conspiracy theories that Cartoon Network was run by Moral Guardians who deliberately sabotaged any series they found inappropriate for kids by using TTG to artificially manipulate ratings to justify cancellation). During the summer of 2015, Teen Titans Go! was practically the only thing that was played aside from what few live-action movies CN still held the rights to, new episodes of original and acquired series, The Amazing World of Gumball, and the Adult Swim block. By the end of 2018, the excessive airing of the series began to die down as its popularity waned, the show's staunchest defenders turned against it, the theatrical movie was considered a box-office disappointmentnote  it actually did decent for its $10 million budget, making $52 million back, but Warner Bros. wanted $250 million due to the popularity of the series. Unfortunately, they released it at a time the show's popularity was waning, and Cartoon Network lost a large portion of its viewership, mainly longtime viewers and kids who switched over to either the other children's networks like Nickelodeon and Disney Channel/Disney XD, and/or websites and streaming services like YouTube, Netflix, Disney+, and HBO Max. It's been given its own page here because it's one of the most noteworthy and conspicuous examples of any TV series, animated or otherwise, being overexposed by its network.

Examples pertaining to marathons go here.

The history of Teen Titans Go!'s status as this below is in rough chronological order unless otherwise indicated:


US Cartoon Network

  • The show's DC Nation slot was a rerun, with a primetime slot showing new episodes. Promos for it were shown constantly (in contrast, Beware the Batman, another DC-related property, had Invisible Advertising), and CN even ran marathons of it to fill up the daytime schedule. In just a few episodes, the network had already ordered a second season, while Batman got pulled from DC Nation entirely (supposedly scheduled for a January return until CN pushed it to an unspecified "first half of 2014" date), all but guaranteeing the latter would get the axe considering how little CN thinks of action cartoons not aired by Adult Swim or Toonami. By August 2014, Teen Titans Go was airing six times a day on weekdays (despite only having 29 half-hour episodes at the time), and little over a year later, the show would air 15 times a day. Even CN's other favorites don't receive that many airings in one day.
  • On October 26, 2013, DC Nation became 100% Teen Titans Go! after Beware was pulled from the schedule, before the block disappeared entirely. Beware was later written off for taxes, meaning Cartoon Network can't legally air it anymore, forcing Toonami to burn off the remaining seven episodes in one night.
  • In late 2014, it got to the point where half of Cartoon Network's airtime was divided between it and The Amazing World of Gumball.
  • By June 2015, the show aired at least 4-5 hours a day. This forced Sonic Boom and Transformers: Robots in Disguise into premiering in the graveyard slot so reruns could air in the primetime slot (in fact, the former show's first promo didn't air until right after the show premiered). Some series such as the then-upcoming Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! and Wabbit were moved to Boomerang (though they would end up premiering on Cartoon Network before moving to Boomerang again), while the DreamWorks Dragons series was moved to Netflix (though this move wasn't without precedent due to an exclusive deal between Netflix and DreamWorks to air exclusive series based on DreamWorks properties).
  • Most TV guides would mix up a rerun of the show with another show starting in Spring 2015, like Uncle Grandpa, Clarence, or Steven Universe. When this happened, one would expect "Puppets, Whaaaaat?", "Serious Business" or "Hot Garbage" to show up instead.
    • Sometimes, they'll mix up Teen Titans Go! episodes as well and air a different episode instead of the one that was previously scheduled. For example, during the weekend The Power of Four was to premiere, they were slated to play "TTG vs. PPG", but "Money Grandma" was played instead.
  • Specific episodes are also adored, not unlike some of Disney's live-action fare.
    • In the summer of 2015, the episodes "Mas Y Menos" and "Uncle Jokes" seemed to play every day.
    • After it premiered, the aforementioned "Serious Business" played every other day, causing the Pee-Pee Dance to become a meme among both the network and the target audience, with said song receiving over 17 million views on YouTube and even getting its own promo. It even got to the point where reruns of the episode got higher ratings than its premiere. After the episode took a brief two-year hiatus and returned in September 2017, Cartoon Network now only airs the episode if said day is a holiday (which even extends to minor ones like Rosh Hashanah and President's Day) or to compete with highly-anticipated kids' TV events, like the nationwide return of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood on PBS or the premiere of Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie. This treatment stopped in August 2018, when it returned to the regular rotation.
      • In November 2020, "Serious Business" and its sister episode "Thanksgiving" played virtually every other day, usually during the early morning hours.
    • In the fall of 2015, they began to show "Hey You, Don't Forget About Me in Your Memory" and "I'm the Sauce" every single day of the week. The former episode also went through a phase of being played every weekend for the first 7 weeks of 2019.
    • In January 2016, they started to play "The Spice Game" every single day.
    • "Wally T" became the new "Serious Business". At the time of its premiere, there wasn't a day where the episode didn't air at least once.
    • As of March 2017, "Accept the Next Proposition You Hear", "Operation Dude Rescue" and "Booty Scooty" are the most played episodes. Usually, one of these three will be played twice on the same day.
    • In the summer of 2017, "Easter Creeps" and "Master Detective" were played every day.
    • Since the fall of 2017, Cartoon Network will frequently show the two-part episodes to fill up time, playing hour-long episodes on weekends for the same purpose. The one most frequently played is "Operation Dude Rescue", which they show every other day, with "BBRAE!" being played the second most.
    • In late April 2018, CN started showing "Top of the Titans" (a parody of Top of the Pops), a Clip Show that showcases the top 12 songs in the show, every single day.
    • In late July 2018, the show's Hollywood special kept playing every other hour, which was somewhat justified as that was the month Teen Titans Go! To the Movies was released.
    • Ever since it premiered in June 2018, the episode "Mo Money, Mo Problems" has been getting an insane amount of airplay, sometimes airing twice or three times in the same day.
    • In the summer of 2019, "Communicate Openly" aired every single day after its premiere, sometimes being shown as much as three times in a single day.
    • "Butt Atoms" has been shown every other day since it premiered. On some days, it plays twice.
    • After its premiere, you couldn't go a day without seeing "Rain on Your Wedding Day" on the schedule.
    • If a certain month has a holiday celebrated, you can expect to see the relevant holiday episode played every day until the month is over, even if the holiday itself has ended. This even extends to episodes celebrating relatively minor holidays such as Daylight Savings Time and the Super Bowl.
    • Ever since it premiered, "Don't Press Play" has been shown every three to five days.
  • For the week of June 29 to July 3, 2015 and over the Fourth of July weekend, the network showed literally nothing but the show in celebration of the 100th episode (episodes 96-99 also premiered during the week). Except for Gumball, new episodes of Ninjago, airings of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules and The Smurfs, and of course, Adult Swim, the network practically became the Teen Titans Go Network. Normal schedule patterns returned the next week, reducing the show's presence to roughly 45% of the schedule and re-adding reruns of Uncle Grandpa, Gumball, Clarence, and Steven Universe, plus an additional slot for Ninjago, a very early-morning slot for Tom & Jerry Tales, and even another early morning slot for Pokémon.
  • However, by August 2015, the amount of Teen Titans Go! reruns was severely dialed back, with Regular Show recapturing its 7:30 PM timeslot, Sonic Boom gaining a one-hour slot in the morning, Courage the Cowardly Dog gaining a one-hour slot right after Adult Swim, and even Baby Looney Tunes returning to air an hour in the morning to promote the Uncle Grandpa Babies special.
  • The series' already large marketing campaign has become even more extensive, with promos airing on non-Turner channels,note This depends on who your cable/satellite provider is, as they sometimes overwrite ads to air local promos and/or promos for other networks various video streaming sites, and even in some movie theaters. Keep in mind that with the exception of Boomerang, it's rare for Cartoon Network shows to be advertised on other channels owned by Time Warner.
    • They also ran ads once on The CW during Saturday mornings. It helps that Time Warner, the owner of the Turner networks, owns half of that network.
    • At one point in 2015, ads for the series even ran on the USA Network during Monday Night Raw.
    • One particular promo featuring children getting excited over "The Pee Pee Dance" has been playing every three hours in the local slot on New York cable provider Cablevision for at least a year as of June 2016, appearing on everything from DIY Network to ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas.
  • In the fall of 2015, Teen Titans Go would play in five two-hour blocks on weekdays, sandwiching episodes of Wabbit and Uncle Grandpa.
  • The popularity of the show has led to Cartoon Network devoting several programming blocks to the show:
    • The earliest of these blocks was the weekend morning block Teen Titans Go! Top 5, a rebranding of the original Top 5 introduced in September 2015, where fans of the show picked the top five episodes they wanted to see on TV via the CN website. The length of this block (running from 8AM to 1PM) resulted in shows like Pokémon: The Series, Sonic Boom and Justice League Action being put in poor timeslots on weekends, and even resulted in Pokémon moving to Disney XD, where it's been treated much better. This block would usually be followed by an all-day block of Teen Titans Go!. In the fall of 2017, the latter was shortened to be from 9 to 12 to play hourlong blocks of Ben 10 and OK KO! Let's Be Heroes before and after the block.
    • One incarnation of the block had all episodes tied into some sort of theme (for example, one day would have episodes focusing on food and another may have episodes that are parodies of pop culture.) In January 2018, this block's Sunday run ended. To compromise, Cartoon Network made nearly the entire Saturday schedulenote  with the only other shows on that day's schedule being Unikitty! and the original Teen Titans comprised of Teen Titans Go! reruns.
    • In October 2015, the "New Thursdays" block that they had broadcast for over a year was renamed the "New Titans Thursdays" block. Ironically, as of the renaming, new episodes of the show didn't start airing until three weeks after it started. It reverted back to its original name in 2016 before becoming "Yoursdays" in April 2016, a block centered around viewers sending in videos of themselves for the network to play during commercial breaks.
    • In late January 2017, Cartoon Network added a block called the Teen Titans Go! Friday Party, which was basically a 9-hour marathon of Teen Titans Go! to premiere new episodes of the show. Sometimes, during this block, other shows had new episodes, like PPG 2016, but only TTG was advertised in promos. Because people thought it was just another TTG-centric block, few viewers tuned in and the ratings for each of the shows on the block went down drastically, including TTG. The block was cancelled in April 2017.
    • After the Friday Party block was done away with, Cartoon Network debuted the Summertime Go! (as in Teen Titans Go!) block in June 2017. Headed by seven hours of TTG, the block aired on Fridays and had new episodes of TTG and Ben 10 (2016). New episodes of We Bare Bears and the premiere of OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes were expected to premiere sometime within the next couple months. In July, however, the block was ignored due to a month-long bomb of Mighty Magiswords episodes, where viewers used the MagiMobile app to collect swords based on Cartoon Network shows such as TTG, Steven Universe, Gumball, We Bare Bears, and Ben 10 2016. By the time Bears and K.O. finally premiered new episodes, the block was discontinued.
    • In September 2017, Cartoon Network shifted its night of major premieres to Friday, consisting of new episodes of Teen Titans Go!, The Amazing World of Gumball, OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, and We Bare Bears. More emphasis was put on TTG than the other shows (yet again), with nine hours of the show playing before the start of the block, with only a movie (or an hour long rerun of one of their other shows) interrupting it. The promos for the block also said "It all starts with a new Teen Titans Go! at 6:00!", and the new Titans episodes were always promoted outside of the block.
    • To promote the four-way crossover amongst this show, OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, Steven Universe and Ben 10 (2016), Cartoon Network aired a block called "Raven Domination", which featured episodes centered on Raven, since she was in the aforementioned crossover.
  • On November 1, 2015, they aired "Serious Business" / "Thanksgiving" and "Let's Get Serious" / "Hose Water" back-to-back twice in a row, despite TV guides listing Clarence and Uncle Grandpa and the episodes "Waffles" / "Opposites" and "Pirates" / "I See You".
  • Averted starting around mid-November 2015, with the show only being rerun four times a day and with Adventure Time, Regular Show and Steven Universe reruns returning in force. This allowed Supernoobs, yet another Canadian import, to make its American debut, which itself unfortanately became another victim of screwing by Cartoon Network. In fact, Teen Titans Go! eventually got the spotlight over Supernoobs when it interrupted the show's comeback from an eight-month hiatus after two weeks and stole its plans to air new episodes while replacing them with Teen Titans Go! reruns.
  • In January 2016, the series once again regained its grip on the schedule. This time around, they were mainly confined to mornings and mid-weekdays, with only one primetime weekday slot. In fact, Cartoon Network showed an Adventure Time marathon on MLK Day rather than a Teen Titans Go! marathon.
  • In February 2016, it seemed to be averted. According to TV Guide, weekdays had zero Teen Titans Go! reruns, with reruns of The Garfield Show, several Total Drama series and even Johnny Test returning to the schedule. In addition, Adventure Time, Regular Show and Steven Universe, the three shows that many had theorized as being marginalized by network management for censorship reasons, regained a more regular rerun schedule. Unfortunately, though, it was just an error caused by TV Guide accidentally showing a schedule from early-mid 2014 (when TTG had about as much airtime as any other series before it dominated the schedule starting in 2015), a mistake that was rectified two days later.
  • In 2015, three restaurants (Sonic, Wendy's and Burger King) had given away toys based on the show, a feat that had never been accomplished before by any kids' property in North America.
    • A year and a half later, McDonald's gave away toys based on the show, making it the first time a licensed property appeared at all 4 nationwide restaurants that have licensed tie-ins in kids' mealsnote This excludes White Castle, Hardee's, Subway, Carl's Jr (all of whom are regional and the latter of whose kids meal promotions mostly cover properties owned by Disney as of 2019), Jack in the Box, Arby's, KFC, Taco Bell (all of whom have not done licensed tie-ins since their Yo Gabba Gabba!, The Mr. Men Show, The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A VeggieTales Movie and Almost Naked Animals promotions, respectively), Sbarro (whow3 last known licensed kids meal promotion was for the Barney & Friends video Come on Over to Barney's House back in 2000), and Chick-Fil-A (who's kids meal promotions are mostly for religious edutainment properties), something that took Nickelodeon counterpart SpongeBob SquarePants 11 years to do.
  • The show has a Blu-ray release, making it one of the handful of Warner Bros. cartoons to receive this treatment.
  • Ever since it premiered in 2014, you couldn't watch Cartoon Network every weekend without seeing the episode "Caged Tiger" / Hose Water" at least once, since the first segment was (before the premiere of "Serious Business") the highest-rated episode of the show.
    • "Caged Tiger" is loved so much by Cartoon Network that, as of March 2016, it'll show up after any given movie airing to round out time, similar to what happened with Adventure Time at the peak of its popularity.
  • It's the only currently airing kids' show not on PBS Kidsthat has holiday-themed episodes in regular rotation. note The SpongeBob episodes "Fools in April" and "Bubble Buddy" (the latter taking place on Leif Erickson Day) don't count. For example, "Thanksgiving" was frequently played in early 2015 due to being paired with "Serious Business" (one of the show's most popular episodes), "How 'Bout Some Effort" played even after Valentine's Day passed, "Black Friday" is aired every other day, and "The True Meaning of Christmas" will often play every two weeks.
    • Even more peculiar, "More of the Same", an episode about the New Year, premiered in the United States nearly five months (July 30) before New Years Eve. Most countries, such as the United Kingdom note only the Cartoon Network UK run, CiTV aired the episode early too and Australia, actually waited to air it until New Year's.
  • Here's a chart of a typical weekly Cartoon Network schedule near the end of 2015, in which TTG takes up 64% of the weekly airtime. Even SpongeBob SquarePants rarely hits this level of network favoritism.
  • In May 2016, airings of the show were cut down once again. The show aired for 3.5 hours on weekdays and 3 hours on weekends.
  • Cartoon Network's YouTube channel formerly had Teen Titans Go! as the sole show represented in its banner, further presenting TTG as a flagship property of the network. It has since been replaced with a banner representing a variety of shows on the network until that one was replaced with a Mighty Magiswords banner for a week.
  • During the week of September 19, 2016, the show was reduced to 38% of the schedule, airing 5 hours a day at most, yielding to airings of Clarence, Regular Show, The Powerpuff Girls (2016), Looney Tunes, and even What's New, Scooby-Doo?.
  • It got to the point where Cartoon Network will shoehorn Teen Titans Go! in promos to hype up new series. For example, the promos for thepremieres of Unikitty! and Justice League Action (which, if you're wondering, was the only promo the latter show got).
  • The TV movie Island Adventures is loved by Cartoon Network so much that they'll often use it to fill time that can't be taken up by more Teen Titans Go! episodes. Sometimes, as was the case during a marathon commemorating the premiere of My Knight and Me, the movie will air twice.
  • This was Cartoon Network's broadcast schedule for the week of February 13, 2017. Notice all 159 of those yellow rectangles? They all represent every single time Teen Titans Go! aired that week. If you look in the upper right-hand corner, you'll notice a breakdown by percentages, where TTGtakes up 50 percent of the airtime for Cartoon Network in that week.note  You may also notice that The Amazing World of Gumball, the show with the second highest amount of airings, only averages 70 airings compared to TTG's 159. The show with the second most amount of airings doesn't even gethalfof the airings TTG gets.
    • By late February and early March, TTG averaged around 180 airings per week, and the schedule was changed to only include TTG, Gumball and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2017), save for any new episodes of other shows and some movies. Shows besides the "Big Three" weren't even rerun at all. No, seriously.
      • Ironically, "Titans Saving Time", the episode that premiered that week, ended up being the first TTG episode to dip below a million viewers on its premiere.
      • We Bare Bears rejoined the lineup in late March to the relief of many. In April, the only 5 shows on the schedule were the aforementioned "Big Three", with We Bare Bears and Ben 10 2017. Adventure Time rejoined the lineup on April 24 in time for the Elements miniseries, with Steven Universe returning in May.
      • On June 16, 2017, Teen Titans Go!'s Friday airings were watched by 0.9 million people, which resulted in the network putting more reruns of the show on the schedule the following week.
  • However, starting on April 23, reruns were being severely dialed back again, yielding to hourlong blocks of Steven Universe reruns, a glut of movies and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and We Bare Bears reruns, and the Adventure Time miniseries Elements. This continued into May and June, with more reruns of said shows airing, particularly The Amazing World of Gumball. Adventure Time reruns were still absent, though they finally returned in June, airing on Mondays in a one-hour block.
    • Along with Gumball and Ben 10 2016, the series still ended taking up most of the slots with the occasional movies, several of which are live-action (and are the only live-action programming left on the network following the infamous CN Real era). Steven Universe barely had any rerun time (with three of its season 4 episodes compiled into an hour long block - granted, that's still more than what Transformers: Robots in Disguise or Sonic Boom get). We Bare Bears and Clarence got the occasional showing, but Uncle Grandpa had a one-and-done showing of new episodes just to get to cancellation quicker.
  • In July 2017, about 80% of Cartoon Network's daily schedule was made up of some combination of Titans, Gumball, or Ben 10, with occasional movies and episodes of We Bare Bears, Clarence and Steven Universe (in that order in terms of frequency) making up most of the rest.
  • However, starting on September 25, 2017, the show averaged four hours from Monday to Thursday, yielding to airings of OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, The Amazing World of Gumball, We Bare Bears, Teen Titans, Ben 10 (2016), Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes (returning to the schedule after being removed in September 2016), and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2017) (returning to the schedule after being removed in May). However, this happen at the expense of Tom and Jerry Tales, which was dropped from the schedule entirely.
    • However, after a week, Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes and Cloudy were pulled and replaced with Scooby-Doo movies, reruns of the original Ben 10 (returning to the schedule after being removed in August 2016), and Clarence (returning to the schedule after being removed in July)
  • A feature film appropriately titled Teen Titans Go! To the Movies was released on July 27, 2018, making Teen Titans Go! the second Cartoon Network show after The Powerpuff Girls Movie, the first general Cartoon Network movie since Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show, and the second WB animated series after Batman: Mask of the Phantasm to get one.
  • For the two-part special "Titans Got Talent" (an interactive special where viewers voted for which character wins), CN started not a website, but a hotline. Keep in mind that it's rare for any show to do this, especially since the rise of Internet polls.
  • By mid-October, the reruns were once again somewhat dialed back, although it's still by far the most frequently broadcast show on the network. Episodes of OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, The Amazing World of Gumball, Teen Titans, reruns of the original Ben 10, and Clarence were added on weekdays, as were various movies, so Teen Titans Go! ultimately took up about a third of a typical daytime schedule.
  • In February 2018, Clarence, Adventure Time, OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, Ben 10 (2016), and Teen Titans were temporarily removed from the weekday schedule, and only TTG, Unikitty, We Bare Bears, and Gumball remained (OK KO, Teen Titans, and Ben 10 2016 were kept on weekends, however).
  • In 2018, they started showing themed compilations of the show, ranging from a half-hour to an hour in lengthnote  similar to what Nickelodeon has done with SpongeBob SquarePants, PAW Patrol and The Loud House, with new ones premiering every Friday. They tended to be themed around random topics and served the purpose of padding out time slots on other days of the week. Some of these included "Tooth Fairy Fun", "Beast Boy's Best Beasts" and "Pizza Party!".
  • Beginning with the week of April 23, 2018, reruns of the show were dialed back significantly, now averaging around four hours per day while yielding the timeslots it used to hog to other series such as Craig of the Creek, OK KO, We Bare Bears, Gumball, Ben 10, and even Adventure Time.
  • As of August 2018, the show now averages 5 hours on weekends.
  • TTG's Raven was cast as one of the main protagonists in the OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes episode "Crossover Nexus", airing on October 8, 2018, as a character from the show most emblematic of CN's scheduling as the episode went into production.
  • The marathon treatment of the show died down after the one that promoted Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, likely due to the show's popularity rapidly declining after Total DramaRama beat the show in ratings, as well as criticisms of the show now overshadowing any defenders it has left. This is also likely due to how much the movie made, as having a budget of $10 million made it easy for the movie to make slightly more than five times that at $52 million, but because Warner Bros. had demanded $250 million, it was still deemed a failure. In fact, Cartoon Network is starting to give more airtime to other shows as of October 2018, like The Amazing World of Gumball, Craig of the Creek, We Bare Bears, OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, and Total DramaRama (with occassional reruns of Adventure Time, Steven Universe, the annual airing of the "Terror Tales of the Park" episodes of Regular Show at Halloween time, and starting in the last week or so of 2018, even the original Total Drama Island made a surprise return, with the first five seasons being aired in sequence over the coming months to help promote the spin-off). The movie, as a matter of fact, was actually Screwed by the Network to some extent, getting surprisingly little advertising, indicating that the previous trend of airing as many TTG reruns as possible is over and the network is now trying to mend fences with the longtime viewers who jumped ship for Nickelodeon and Disney XD.
    • Another sign of the adoration dying down is the shortening of the show's marathons, usually those played before a new episode. In the past, marathons went from Cartoon Network's sign-on to Adult Swim's sign-on. This is indicative of the network cutting back on the amount of reruns the show gets, most likely due to a combination of rapidly declining ratings, the movie based on the show only doing mildly well at the box office, and major rerun fatigue that not even Nickelodeon would consider doing with theirbiggestshows.
    • Another instance of the show falling out of the network's favor can be seen in scheduling on the day of a highly-anticipated series finale. When Regular Show aired its final episode in January 2017, a TTG marathon was held before and after the finale, a sign that Cartoon Network did not care much about the show ending and wanted it gone (it all but disappeared from the network thereafter, aside from annual airings of the popular "Terror Tales of the Park" episodes around Halloween time). Conversely, when Adventure Time aired its series finale on Labor Day 2018, TTG respectfully stood on the sidelines to allow what was once Cartoon Network's flagship series (and the one that ended the network's first Dork Age when it premiered in 2010) to go out with dignity, with CN not airing a single episode that day in favor of an Adventure Time marathon. This scenario repeated itself on March 27, 2020, when Steven Universe aired an all-day marathon leading up to the four-part series finale of the Steven Universe Future epilogue series, and once again, TTG allowed it to end on a high note. This scenario would repeat itself months later, when We Bare Bears aired a three-day marathon leading up to a limited commercial premiere of the series' Finale Movie, and the (grown-up, as CN is preparing We Baby Bears) bears were given a proper send-off.
    • As of May 2019, even holiday marathons, which were usually held to either promote a new episode or to compete with the offerings of rival channels, note usually new episodes of ratings rivals The Loud House and PAW Patrol on Nickelodeon have stopped. On Memorial Day, for instance, the schedule for the channel was the channel's normal schedule, the exact opposite of what Nickelodeon did that day,note  They showed a marathon of PAW Patrol, followed by a marathon of The Loud House, which were both done to promote new episodes despite the premiere episode being aired that day being a hype-up about a sixth member of the team.
  • Delta Airlines promoted Teen Titans Go! To the Movies more than any other one they've had on board on their website, with it appearing as featured every single month since it came out. May be a subversion, since this could merely be Warner Bros. desperately trying to recoup the losses incurred by the movie.
    • Several other international airlines also featured this movie for their in-flight entertainment options for the same reason.
  • As of June 13, 2020, the Saturday schedule consists of nothing but Teen Titans Go!, Craig of the Creek and The Amazing World of Gumball.
  • As of August 2020, the series' presence on the network has been severely reduced. The amount of airtime the show gets is now much more reasonable, and reruns of series such as Craig of the Creek, Victor and Valentino, Mao Mao: Heroes of Pure Heart, Apple & Onion, DC Super Hero Girls, Total DramaRama, and even Ben 10 (2016) are more prominent, as well as those of The Amazing World of Gumball and We Bare Bears, two shows that had ended by this point.
  • On the week of October 19, 2020, Cartoon Network changed their weekend schedule to feature almost nothingnote save for reruns of Total DramaRama on Saturday, and Bakugan: Battle Planet and Ninjago premieres on Sunday but Teen Titans Go! and The Amazing World of Gumball, with the former airing for eight hours on Saturday and almost as much on Sunday.
  • By June 2021, the amount of Teen Titans Go! reruns have dropped below 100 airings a week.

International Feeds

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nordiccnttgsportlov.png
  • If there was an absolute king of this trope internationally, it would most definitely be the UK feed of Cartoon Network, who seems to have been fueled by this trope since mid-2017 after several years of airing it reasonably:
    • In mid-August 2017, a lion's share of the weekly schedule was taken up by TTG, The Amazing World of Gumball and We Bare Bears, with almost every other show shoved to nighttime slots or vanishing completely. It got to the point where a total of four CN originals note Steven Universe, Clarence, Uncle Grandpa and Mighty Magiswords were put on hiatuses until March 2018, when they finally received new episodes in a localized version of CN US' "NEW NEW NEW NEW Fridays" block.
    • The show doesn't just air on the local Cartoon Network, but on free-to-air kids' channel CITV, which airs some episodes that Cartoon Network doesn't air that often. CITV's run even surpassed CN US' run at one point, let alone CN UK's.
    • The UK feed suffers from the repeated episodes problem, too. Two particular blocks tend to play every weekend: the same hourlong block that contains "Tower Renovation" and "Serious Business", and the half-hour block with "Smile Bones" and Real Boy Adventures", with the latter sometimes appearing two days in a row.
      • Since its UK premiere in July 2019, the episode "Nostalgia Is Not a Substitute for an Actual Story" seems to play almost every day.
  • In France, the show airs three to four times a day on not just the local Cartoon Network, but France 4, part of the public broadcaster that focuses on younger audiences. Compared to its reputation in America, however, it's a lot more popular in France. That, and even on two channels, it still airs less compared to the American feed.
  • In Canada, Teletoon airs four and a half hours of Teen Titans Go! daily, though it still airs less compared to the American feed of Cartoon Network, especially after Teletoon became a 24-hour channel. On the other hand, apart from the occasional airing of the Crossover episode with The Powerpuff Girls (2016), the Canadian feed of Cartoon Network hasn't aired Teen Titans Go! since September 2017.
  • As of September 2020, the Italian feed of Cartoon Network airs the show at least 20 times each weekday, second behind The Amazing World of Gumball. The show is so adored in Italy that it's gotten to the point where the network's timeshift channel will become a temporary pop-up channel dedicated to nothing but this show, which will last for 11 days, beating the infamous US Christmas 2017 marathon and the Nordic Sportlov 2020 marathon by over 600 episodes.

Teen Titans (TV series)

American Cartoon TV series

For the 2013 reboot cartoon series, see Teen Titans Go!

Teen Titans is an American animatedsuperherotelevision series developed by Glen Murakami, David Slack and Sam Register, based on DC Comics's superhero team of the same name. It premiered on Cartoon Network on July 19, 2003, and its first two seasons also aired on Kids' WB. Initially, only four seasons were planned, but the popularity of the series led to Cartoon Network ordering a fifth season. The final half-hour episode of the show, "Things Change", aired on January 16, 2006; it was later followed by a TV movie, Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo, that premiered on September 15, 2006, serving as the series finale. A 15-minute episode titled "The Lost Episode" was released as part of an online promotional campaign by Post Consumer Brands in January 2005.

Teen Titans became one of Cartoon Network's most acclaimed series, renowned for its character development, humor and serious themes. During its run, the series was nominated for three Annie Awards and one Motion Picture Sound Editors Award. Spin-off media included comics, DVD releases, video games, music albums, and collectible toys. In 2013, the show spawned a spin-off, titled Teen Titans Go!, which received a theatrical film that was released on July 27, 2018, titled Teen Titans Go! To the Movies. In September 2019, a crossover film with Teen Titans Go! was released, titled Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans. It features the first appearance of the original series characters after 13 years.

The series was first shown on Boomerang from February 2, 2009 replacing the Super Friends until October 31, 2010. It returned to Boomerang's line-up on October 3, 2011, and left the schedule again on June 1, 2014.

Premise[edit]

Teen Titans is based primarily on stories by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez from the 1980s, featuring characters, storylines, and concepts introduced during the run, and incorporating a similar group of members. The five main members of the eponymous team in the series are Robin (Scott Menville), the intelligent and capable leader of the Teen Titans; Starfire (Hynden Walch), a quirky, curious alien princess from the planet Tamaran; Cyborg (Khary Payton), a half-human/half-robot who is known for his strength and technological prowess; Raven (Tara Strong), a stoic girl from the parallel world Azarath who draws upon dark energy and psionic abilities; and Beast Boy (Greg Cipes), a good-natured joker who can transform into various animals. They are situated in Titans Tower, a large T-shaped building featuring living quarters, a command center, and a variety of training facilities, on an island just offshore from the West Coast metropolis of Jump City. The team deals with all manner of criminal activity and threats to the city, while dealing with their own struggles with adolescence, their mutual friendships, and their limitations.

The first season focuses on the Teen Titans' introduction to the mysterious supervillain Slade (Ron Perlman), who seeks to turn Robin into his apprentice. The second season is an adaptation of "The Judas Contract" storyline where new hero Terra (Ashley Johnson) joins the team while secretly plotting against them with Slade. The third season depicts Cyborg's conflict with the evil organization H.I.V.E. and their leader Brother Blood (John DiMaggio), prompting Cyborg to form the superhero team Titans East with Aqualad (Wil Wheaton), Speedy (Mike Erwin), Bumblebee (T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh), and Más y Menos (Freddy Rodriguez). In the fourth season, Raven finds herself unwillingly involved in a plot that threatens the existence of the world when her demon father Trigon (Kevin Michael Richardson) seeks to enslave the Earth. For the fifth season, the Teen Titans join forces with numerous other heroes to combat the Brotherhood of Evil, Beast Boy's longtime adversaries, and their army of villains.

Episodes[edit]

Main article: List of Teen Titans episodes

Each season contains a distinct story arc that is centered on a specific Titan on the team. (A similar setup was later used by WB/DC for The Batman.) Starfire is the only individual member who was part of the original roster to not have a season focused on her.

Secret identities[edit]

Unlike most other superhero television series, the Teen Titans characters maintain their superhero identities at all times, with any hints at the concept of an alter ego or secret identity rarely explored.

It was really important to me that little kids watching it could identify with characters. And I thought that the minute you start giving them secret identities then kids couldn't project themselves onto the characters anymore. And that was important to me. I know it's kind of important to have secret identities and stuff like that but we wanted everything to be really, really, iconic. Like, "Oh, there's the robot guy. There's the alien girl. There's the witch girl. There's the shape-changing boy. There's the…" We just wanted it really clean like that. We wanted it like old Star Trek. We just wanted it simple…

…And the whole "Who's Robin?" controversy is really kind of interesting to me. My big concern is just trying to make Robin cool. And just really set Robin apart from Batman. So if it seems like I'm avoiding the question, I sort of am. Because I don't think it's really important. My concern is how do I make Robin a really strong lead character without all that other stuff. And I feel that way about all the characters. How can I keep all the characters really iconic and really clean.

— Glen Murakami, Drawing Inspiration: An Interview with Glen Murakami, April 2004[3]

The policy of not mentioning the main characters' secret identities has been broken for all but Raven:

  • While the secret identity of Robin—an alias assumed by at least 5 characters in the comics—is never explicitly revealed in the series, several hints are provided to suggest he is Dick Grayson, the original Robin and founding member of the Teen Titans.
    • Robin's alternate dimensional counterpart Larry in the episode "Fractured" is named Nosyarg Kcid—"Dick Grayson" spelled backwards.
    • Robin's future counterpart in the episode "How Long Is Forever?" has taken on the identity of Nightwing, Grayson's second superhero alias.
    • The main romance in the show is Robin's relationship with Starfire; while Jason Todd (the second Robin, who is often suspected to be the character Red X in the show) also had a relationship with Starfire in the comics, it was only physical intimacy.
    • A glimpse into Robin's consciousness by Raven in the episode "Haunted" shows the memory of two acrobats falling from a trapeze, a reference to the death of Grayson's acrobat parents being the catalyst for him becoming Robin.
    • Further connections to the Batman mythos include two references in the episode "The Apprentice, Pt. II", when Robin responds to a suggestion by the villain Slade that he "might be like a father to [him]" with "I already have a father" (which transitions to a shot of flying bats) and a fight scene on the rooftop of a building labeled Wayne Enterprises.
    • The Teen Titans Go! episode “Permanent Record” would later satirize the mystery of Robin's identity by explicitly giving his name as “Robin v.3: Tim Drake” (the third Robin), with "Dick Grayson" and "Jason Todd" being written over. Subsequent episodes, however, establish him as Dick Grayson through vague flashbacks to his boyhood at Haley Circus.
  • At the end of the Season 5 premiere, the Doom Patrol members refer to Beast Boy by his real name (Garfield Mark Logan), though the Titans still continue to call him Beast Boy (as a joke in "Go!", the Titans ask Beast Boy about his mask and he states it hides his true identity, though Raven points out that his green skin makes him instantly recognizable regardless of his clothing); and when Cyborg goes undercover at H.I.V.E. Academy in "Deception," he takes on the alias "Stone" as a reference to his comic counterpart's real name, Victor Stone.
    • Later seasons of Teen Titans Go! have, though infrequently, referred to Cyborg as Victor Stone and Beast Boy as Garfield Logan.
  • And Starfire's real name Princess Koriand'r ("Koriand'r" being Tamaranian for "Starfire") was used when the Teen Titans visited Tamaran in "Betrothed."

Production[edit]

Soundtrack[edit]

The series is known for featuring both an English[4] and Japanese[5] version of its title theme song, created by Andy Sturmer and performed by the Japanese band Puffy AmiYumi. The title theme used in the regions where the show was broadcast varied; some would play only one version, while Japan - and the English language video editions - would use both, according to the respective episode's plot theme: The English lyrics for more serious stories, the Japanese version for more comedic tones.[6]

The first-season episode "Mad Mod" also featured another song by Puffy AmiYumi, "K2G".[6] In the feature-length film Trouble in Tokyo, a literal translation of the Japanese song, whose actual lyrics differ greatly from its English counterpart, is performed for comedic effect.[6]

Cancellation[edit]

In mid-November 2005, TitansTower.com reported that prospects for a sixth season were looking extremely unlikely, and fans were urged[7] to express their support for the show to Cartoon Network. Several days after this initial posting, word came that Cartoon Network had officially terminated the show.[7] According to Wil Wheaton, the actor who provided the voice of Aqualad, the series was terminated by new Warner Bros. Feature Animation executives who made the decision not to renew the series based on its sixth season pitch.[8] Wheaton's story was contradicted by series story editor Rob Hoegee, who stated that the decision came from Cartoon Network, not WB, and that the crew was informed during the writing phase of season five, that there are no plans for a sixth season.[9] The show's producer David Slack indicated that he was given different reasons for the show's cancellation; either the ratings dropped after "scary" season 4 or Mattel wanted the show dead because Bandai had the show's toy deal.[10] Cartoon Network announced that Mattel had become its "master toy licensee" in 2006.[11]

After the last episode, Warner Bros. Animation announced a feature film titled Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo. The film premiered at San Diego Comic-Con International and was shown on Cartoon Network first on September 15, 2006, aired on Kids' WB on September 16, 2006, and finally released on DVD on February 6, 2007.

Crossover with Teen Titans Go![edit]

A mid-credits scene from Teen Titans Go! To the Movies featured the 2003 Titans' return, in which Robin states they've "found a way back".[12]

In early 2019, Warner Bros. announced that a crossover featuring the Titans from both shows, titled Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans, was in development.[13] On June 26, 2019, IGN released the official trailer on YouTube.[14] The film premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con on July 21, 2019. This was followed by a digital release on September 24, 2019 and a DVD and Blu-ray release on October 15, 2019.[15] The events of the film take place during the fifth season of Teen Titans Go!.

Legacy[edit]

The series was revisited as a series of shorts in 2012 for the DC Nation programming block on Cartoon Network. Dubbed New Teen Titans, the shorts began airing on September 11, 2012. The shorts featured the Titans in chibi form, with the principal cast members of the original series returning.[16]

Ciro Nieli, one of the show's directors, would go on to create Disney's Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!, another superhero action show with a large anime influence, but premiered in 2004 on Jetix, and featured Beast Boy's voice actor Greg Cipes as the voice of Chiro, the show's main protagonist. Sam Register, producer of the series, also made his own show in 2004 with Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi on Cartoon Network; which was based on the pop duo who did the theme song, and also had an anime influence, but was created more to be a slapstick comedy in the veins of Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry.

Teen Titans Go! was announced as a spin-off, with many voices the same, but not significantly related in terms of story to both the Teen Titans series, and the New Teen Titans shorts.[17] The series premiered on April 23, 2013.[18]

Menville, Payton, Strong, Cipes, and Walch reprised their respective character roles as Robin, Cyborg, Raven, Beast Boy, Starfire and Blackfire in DC Super Hero Girls.

Payton reprised his role as Cyborg in Lego DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered, Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League, Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League – Attack of the Legion of Doom, Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League – Cosmic Clash, Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League – Gotham City Breakout along with Cipes, Walch, and Menville (although he played the Damian Wayne Robin), Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: The Flash, and Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis. He has also reprised his role as Cyborg on Justice League Action.

Several character details from Teen Titans, like Raven's standard incantation Azarath Metrion Zinthos and Beast Boy's super-werewolf form from the episode "The Beast Within", were incorporated into the animated filmJustice League vs. Teen Titans.

Impact on DC continuity[edit]

Teen Titans has never been established to be a part of the larger DC Animated Universe or The Batman animated series. Series producer Bruce Timm stated the series would not cross over with Justice League Unlimited. Despite this the series was alluded to in Static Shock, which is part of the DCAU like Justice League Unlimited, where Static asked Batman where Robin was to which Batman responded, "With the Titans...You'll meet them some day." The character Speedy, who first appeared in the episode "Winner Take All", later appeared in Justice League Unlimited with the same costume design and voice actor (Mike Erwin) as the Teen Titans incarnation (though he is older in appearance). Kid Flash was voiced by Michael Rosenbaum in his appearances in the show, who was the same actor who voiced the Flash in Justice League Unlimited; both characters are the Wally West incarnations. The follow-up series, Teen Titans Go!, has featured several appearances by Batman, but they have all been non-speaking appearances. Both Batman and Alfred Pennyworth appear in DC Nation's New Teen Titans "Red X Unmasked". In the season 2 episode of Teen Titans Go!, "Let's Get Serious", Aqualad (voiced by Khary Payton), Superboy, and Miss Martian of the Young Justice team appear.

Much like the DC Animated Universe (as well as X-Men: Evolution and Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends), the series has affected the comics that initially inspired it, including: Beast Boy adopting the series' purple and black outfit during DC's "52" storyline and later appearing with the pointed ears and fanged teeth originated by the series,[19] future Cyborg having the same armor pattern of his animated counterpart in the Titans Tomorrow storyline,[20] Raven adapting her animated counterpart's costume design in the "One Year Later" storyline, the characters Más Y Menos making appearances in 52 and the Final Crisis limited series,[21] the character Joto was renamed "Hotspot" during 52 to match his cartoon counterpart,[22] and the villain Cinderblock appearing in a fight with the comic incarnation of the Titans.[23] Red X is later included in the mainstream comic publications through the two-issue teaser comic Future State Teen Titans and its follow-up series Teen Titans Academy.[24][25]

Reception[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

The series has received widespread acclaim from critics. Early into the series' run, Executive Producer and Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. Animation Vice President Sam Register responded to criticism regarding the style of the show with a statement slightly contradicting Murakami's statement about wanting Robin to "be cool" with his metal-tipped boots:

Justice League is awesome and Samurai Jack is awesome and we buy a lot of anime shows that are great, but those shows really are directed more towards the nine to fourteen age group, and the six and seven and eight-year-olds were not gelling with the Justice League and some of the more of the fanboy shows... The main mission was making a good superhero show for kids. Now if the fanboys happen to like the Teen Titans also, that's great, but that was not our mission.

— Sam Register, CBR News interview, May 8, 2004

However, while the series' creators initially stated that younger children were the intended audience for the series, Teen Titans Go! writer J. Torres notes that the progression and deeper themes of the show widened the appeal to a much broader audience:

... [The show] started out skewed a lot younger... but along the way, I think the producers discovered it was reaching a wider audience. ... [the show] got into some darker story lines, and they introduced a lot more characters, so they expanded on it, and they let the show evolve with the audience.

— J. Torres, Titans Companion 2 by Glen Cadigan.[26]

In 2009, Teen Titans was named the 83rd best animated series by IGN.[27]

TVLine lists the theme song from the series among the best animated series themes of all time.[28]

Awards and nominations[edit]

2005 Annie Awards
  • Outstanding Storyboarding in an Animated Television Production (Nominated)
2004 Annie Awards
  • Outstanding Music in an Animated Television Production (Nominated)
  • Outstanding Storyboarding in an Animated Television Production (Nominated)
2004 Motion Picture Sound Editors Awards
  • Best Sound Editing in Television Animation (Nominated)

In other media[edit]

Comics[edit]

Main article: Teen Titans Go! (2004 comic series)

From 2004 to 2008, DC Comics published a comic bookseries based on Teen Titans called Teen Titans Go!. The series was written by J. Torres and Todd Nauck, Larry Stucker was the regular illustrator. The series focuses on Robin, Raven, Starfire, Beast Boy, and Cyborg who are the main cast members of the television series. While the comic's stories stand independently, its issues were done so as not to contradict events established in the animated series' episodes. Often, Teen Titans Go! also referenced episodes of the show, as well as expanding on parts of the series.

Toys[edit]

Bandai released a line of action figures based on the Teen Titans animated series. The line included 1.5 inch "Comic Book Hero" mini figures, 3.5 inch action figures (including "Teen Titans Launch Tower Playset", "Teen Titans Command Center", "Battling Machines", "T-Vehicles", "T-Sub Deluxe Vehicles"), 5 inch action figures, 6.5 inch plush Super-D Toys, and 10 inch figures. Amongst the characters included in the line were the main members of the Teen Titans, Titans East, and various allies and villains.[29][30]
