--Beast Boy throughout the series.


Garfield Mark Logan, aka Beast Boy, is a member of the Teen Titans and the tetartagonist in Teen Titans Go!. While he's gifted with the ability to transform into animals, Beast Boy usually prefers laziness over saving the world.

As in the original series, he is voiced by Greg Cipes.

History

Years ago on a jungle island, Garfield Logan was bitten by a rare species of green monkey. Infected with a deadly disease known as "Green Fever", Logan's parents, both of them scientists, gave him a serum which saved his life. However, as he recounts in the episode "Beast Girl", the antidote had the unintended side effects of turning him green and allowing him to morph into any animal. Realizing the amazing abilities he now had, Garfield became a crime fighter, calling himself Beast Boy.

After a few years of serving with the Doom Patrol,[1] Beast Boy eventually left to defend Jump City from villains as seen in "Flashback". There he met Robin, a fellow teenage superhero who was looking to form a team. Although the Boy Wonder was at first amazed by his powers, he soon learned that 99% of what Beast Boy cared about was eating. Regardless of his laziness though, Beast Boy and the other failures were somehow able to secure membership on the newly formed Teen Titans.

Although he's been a fighting force on the team ever since, Beast Boy prefers to leave the fighting part of the job to the others. For him, it's all about the food and video games...

Personality

"Beast Boy is Cyborg's best bud--a slightly dim but loveable loafer who transforms into all sorts of animals when he's not eating burritos and watching TV."[2]

Relaxation, TV, and snacking are Beast Boy's main priorities in life... everything else (like his job as a superhero) comes second. His constant state of taking breaks and lounging around seriously irritates his team members, but does Beast Boy care? Not even a little. In fact, he's actually a little proud of his slothfulness, arguing with his equally-idle friend Cyborg about who's the laziest one in "Lazy Sunday". Obviously, Beast Boy's completely ignorant about what the expectations of a superhero are.

Waffles (2)

"Waffles", a very deep/complex song.

When he's not sprawled out on the couch or scarfing down pies, Beast Boy enjoys doing other unproductive activities, such as having an indoor rodeo with Cyborg in "Staring at the Future". Lacking intelligence, he also delights in simple-minded pleasures like pranking his friends in "Ghostboy", or singing a ridiculous song about waffles. The Titans will occasionally play along with Beast Boy's shenanigans, but most of the time, they get infuriated with his monkeying around (literally).

With his cool and uncaring demeanor, Beast Boy can come off as selfish and egocentric. And while both of those traits describe him fairly accurately, every now and then he'll put others before him. For example, in "Pie Bros.", Beast Boy got his lazy self a job just so he could buy a gift for Cyborg. Deep down, he really does care about other people (particularly Raven), and when Jump City needs him, he'll be there. Probably hours late, but he'll be there nonetheless.

Physical Appearance

Beast Boy temporarily leaves his innate environment (and his pants) to enjoy nature.

Initially a member of the Doom Patrol, Beast Boy still wears the purple and black costume of his old team, only leaving behind the helmet. His sneakers have an animal paw printed on the sole, and he wears a pair of gray gloves. The silver utility belt around his waste is merely there for holding up his pants, although Beast Boy occasionally prefers to go around only in underwear, like in the episode "Nature". As for his complexion, it's no secret that Beast Boy has undergone a mutation. His skin and hair have turned green, he has large, pointy ears, and a long canine tooth sticks out from his lower lip. However, this is just his normal appearance—Beast Boy can take on a completely different look by turning into any animal that ever existed. And when transforming, his clothes conveniently disappear in animal form, but somehow reappear when he changes back...

Trivia

  • In November 1965, Beast Boy made his first ever appearance in The Doom Patrol #99.[4]
  • The episodes that feature Beast Boy's backstory conflict with one another:
    • "Dog Hand" reveals that Beast Boy has powers at birth and was raised by toucans.
    • During "Beast Girl", he recalled being bit by a green monkey to get his powers.
      • Since "Beast Girl" is way more faithful to the comics, it's believed that the "Dog Hand" story is merely a comedic deception.
  • Like the other Teen Titans, Beast Boy has changed since the 2003 Teen Titans:
    • Maxresdefault4

      Beast Boy betrays his own kind and goes cannibal on some hot dogs.

      Originally a strict vegetarian, he will occasionally eat meat, such as a hamburger in "Colors of Raven" or hot dogs in "Laundry Day". Still, he claims to be a vegan...
    • Although he was lazy before, Beast Boy's work ethic is pretty much nonexistent in Teen Titans Go!.
    • Instead of gradual shapeshifting, now he instantly transforms into animals with a popping sound.
    • Beast Boy is now capable of speaking when he's in animal form.
  • Beast Boy is the second Titan to have his birthday celebrated in the series (found in the episode "BBBDAY"). The first was Cyborg's big day in "Pie Bros".
    • According to "BBBDAY!", his birthday is in November (coinciding with the month of his first appearance in DC Comics.
  • Much like the comics, he is shown to have romantic feelings for both Terra and Raven in Teen Titans Go!. However, an affectionate relationship between Raven and Beast Boy is featured much more prominently than in the previous series.
  • Beast Boy is the first Titan to have his real name mentioned in the series; the word "Garfield" was stitched onto his underwear in "Hot Garbage".
  • Beast Boy is the shortest Titan on the team (but for some reason, he always mocks Robin's height).
  • Many cartoon and video game characters share common traits with Beast Boy, including:
  • Knowledgeable in the most up-to-date teen slang, Beast Boy often uses words like "fool", "bra", "thas wassup", and other rad words.
  • In one episode, Beast Boy claims that he can't turn into any mythical creatures, yet in "Spice Game", he morphs into a dragon.
  • In his normal human form (at least normal to him), Beast Boy is shown to have considerable strength... he effortlessly broke Robin's steel staff in "Staff Meeting".
  • While Beast Boy is transformed into an animal, his eyes are monochromatic (with the exception of his gorilla and elephant forms). However, since the later episodes of Season 3, his eyes in animal form are normal.
  • In "Dude Relax", it's revealed that Beast Boy will sometimes paint an animal green and use it as a substitute for crime fighting (so he can proceed being lazy).
  • Apparently, Beast Boy has Crurophilia, a fetish for legs, as seen when he slobbers over Raven's legs in "Legs", "Leg Day", and "Arms Race with Legs".
  • Beast Boy kissing a burrito

    Unlike Raven and Terra, burritos never rejected Beast Boy.

    He enjoys steam painting in the bathroom (seen in "Serious Business").
  • As shown at the end of "Head Fruit", Beast Boy no longer has a brain.
  • Beast Boy has sung the most amount of songs in the series by far.
  • He has a freckle on his butt (revealed in "The Titans Show").
  • Beast Boy and Brother Blood share the same initials—"BB".
  • He has a special place in his heart for pickles and burritos.
  • As shown in "Mr. Butt", Beast Boy covets Starfire's room.
  • While "BBRAE" revealed that Beast Boy had hair all over his body (even when in non-animal form), multiple episodes like "Laundry Day" contradict this, showing him naked with only hair on his head.
  • During "In and Out", Beast Boy's persona of Beast Bob wears an outfit similar to the one he sports in The New Teen Titans comics.
