Plot

Part 1

Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg are all sitting on the couch as usual when Robin, in a fashionable manner, enters the room and announces that today's "team building activity" will be going to the movies! The Titans are all excited to go and guesses various options, which includes referencing different movies during the process. Robin suggests that they all head to see the new "Babies vs Dogs" movie.

When they arrive at the theater, they are surprised that they have nothing to eat or drink. To help themselves, Cyborg pours some soda and offers Beast Boy some popcorn. Raven wants some malted milk balls and Starfire wants the 'dog that is hot' (which is of course a hot dog); the Tamaranian also squeezes mustard in her mouth, much to Raven's revulsion. They finally get to the theater, but first must sit through all of the previews, which exhilarates them since it's about one of their all-time favorite, Death Toilet, getting a fourth movie. After the opening trailer of Death Toilet 4, the movie starts. When they see that their favorite characters are in trouble but do nothing aside from saying long expositions, the Titans (except Robin, who believes exposition can help the audience understand the characters' motivations) soon become bored and wonder what it would be like to be in an actual movie. So Raven uses her teleportation powers to transport them all into the movie in order to fight the nefarious cyber hackers.

After entering the dimension of the movie, the Titans (aside from Robin who is annoyed by how his friends are messing with the narrative forces) kindly free Baby Jack and Growler. The Titans and the freed protagonists, however, then meet the three hackers. Beast Boy tries doing some stunts but soon gets tangled by a mouse's wire. Starfire blasts energy bolts yet she gets hit instead as one of the hackers use a disc to reflect her blast. Then Cyborg shoots out some missiles but he ends up being sneak-attacked by the hackers. Before Robin and Raven have the chance to retaliate, the hackers fuse themselves and blast the Titans, Growler and Baby Jack with a huge light beam from their mouth.

It looks like all hope is forever lost when Growler perceives the cyber-attacks are far too strong and Raven discerns that they will also die in real life if they are dead in this movie. Cyborg and Beast Boy agree with Raven since they deem themselves as goners. Nonetheless, Robin still thinks the most crucial factor to understand the key to defeat the villain and save the day is to pay attention to the exposition. His friends finally recognizes the importance of the boring expositions and together, they respectively bore the hackers with various dull backstories like Cyborg solemnly explains how his (late) father was a good man who has made himself struggling to live up to his example, Beast Boy describing himself as a person with goals and in Starfire's case, repeating the word itself.

With the hackers are near the edge of being vanquished, Raven knows that there's still one more bit left... Robin's tragic past! After Starfire pleads him, Robin reluctantly obliges and begins with how he was born in a circus family and how he spent his days on the tightrope until one day the ringmaster tasked him with training a bear cub which he named Gunther. The story itself is especially wearisome to the hackers and although one of the hackers still wants to press the "yes" on his keyboard so as to attack the White House, his attention is being diverted by the part of how Robin would huddle with Gunther in the travelling circus train and...

Part 2

After the movie, Robin decides that the Titans should have a Hollywood movie of their own. So after they arrive home by crashing their car halfway through the window, they get started right away! At first, the five discuss who can play them, and even think of some ugly actors to play Robin (because the other Titans regard him as hideous), until he hits them with his staff to expel them from the tower. With Robin directing (since he considers himself a controlling megalomaniac), Beast Boy and Cyborg as the scriptwriters, Starfire as the costume designer and Raven as the makeup artist (even though she claims she does not wear makeup), things go well until Raven warns them that all of this work will tear up their friendship because of creative differences. Robin optimistically says that they will be fine and decides to take the risk.

Robin then checks in on all of the Titans to see how they are doing. He asks Beast Boy and Cyborg how the script is going; they say they can't think of anything. Then Robin asks Starfire how the wardrobe is going...unfortunately, Starfire misunderstood and made a ' war drone', which gets loose and chases Robin. At last, Robin asks Raven how the makeup is going. Raven says that she has created a kind of makeup that'll make your 'eyes pop', though it causes Silkie's cheeks to swell. After all of the work is done, they show it off, but it's all just like "Babies vs Dogs", only worse. The movie is ruined! The five are infuriated with one another; they bicker and fight.

But all of a sudden, everything starts to change. The wardrobe is dapper and stylish, the script is ok and the makeup is fabulous, much to their delight! After it's done, the Titans want to watch their movie. Beast Boy as the baby is seen first, and then Cyborg as the dog comes onscreen. They fight until Raven and Starfire show up; the girls play the invaders planning to take over the world. After the end of the movie, Raven points out that they ripped off the "Babies VS Dogs" movie, but Robin suggests they do a sequel, which excites everyone.

Except Raven, who just does a deadpan stare until the screen blacks out.

Continuity

References

  • When Robin talks to the other Titans about a team building activity, the other Titans give suggestions based on popular movies. For instance;
    • Beast Boy suggests they should tie balloons to the Tower so they can travel to all the places he wanted to visit with his now deceased wife. This references Disney Pixar's Up!.
    • Starfire suggests they should escape the "age of the ice" with a humorous rodent that chases after an acorn. This references the Ice Age franchise.
    • Cyborg suggests they find a magic genie lamp and hopes the princess will finally notice him. This references Disney's Aladdin. The scene also included a parody of Princess Jasmine lying against a plush tiger that resembles her pet, Rajah.
  • Michael and Aaron have a folder labeled "Season 6 Ideas". This could mean Season 6 of Teen Titans Go!, or season 6 of Teen Titans could be in the works.
  • Starfire wishes she could be a "little mermaid princess". This could be a reference to Princess Ariel from Disney's The Little Mermaid.
    • There is a real Little Mermaid statue located in London, England.
