"La Larva de Amor" is the tenth episode of the first season of Teen Titans Go!, and the tenth overall episode of the series.


The gang agrees to take on the responsibility of babysitting Silkie, but they end up losing the slimy little fellow who ends up in Mexico, having an exciting telenovela adventure.


The episode starts with all of the Teen Titans (except for Starfire) sitting in the living room. Beast Boy has a large plate of cookies in front of him, he's sitting

making milk mustaches. Cyborg and Raven join in and it becomes an all-out war of the staches. Starfire shows up interrupting their game, asking the Titans if they will take care of Silkie while she is away. They promise to do an excellent job, so Starfire leaves. As they make more milk mustaches, Beast Boy irritates Cyborg by cheating using a 10-year-old soy milk carton, causing him to throw old soy milk at Beast Boy. It misses and hits a button opening the elevator that Silkie goes out of. A few minutes later the Titans realize Silkie is gone and go to look for him. Silkie is meanwhile outside and ends up in Mexico after a series of amazing, coincidental accidents.

He meets a Mexican woman named Sonia and they hang out. This upsets her ex-fiancé, Carlos. The Titans cannot find Silkie and worry a lot. Beast Boy says he can change into a Silkie and hang with Starfire until they find the real Silkie. Raven says that won't work because he'd be missing and Silkie will be green. Cyborg

finds what looks like a dead Silkie, causing the Titans to scream it horror, but it was just a shed, hollow skin of it. Cyborg then tells them that the real Silkie is still out there. Back in Mexico, Silkie hangs out more with Sonia and Carlos comes and kidnaps them.

They are in a cell when Silkie gets slips out of his chains. He is able to sneak past guards armed with AK-47s. Silkie ends up on a balcony, where Carlos challenges him to a duel. After a brief swordfight, Carlos falls off the edge and Silkie saves Sonia. He then leaves her, making her sad. Back at the Tower, Starfire comes back wanting to see Silkie. They try to fool her, saying he was sleeping, but Robin says that

they lost Silkie. Starfire gets furious at the Titans and starts throwing Starbolts at them until Silkie comes home by himself. She is happy to see him and asks her friends if they want to see the images of her journey. The episode ends with the four hurt Titans groaning in pain on the floor.



  • The name of the episode, "La Larva de Amor" means "The Larva of Love" in Spanish.
  • This is the first episode to contain subtitles.
  • Batman and Commissioner Gordon make their first physical appearances in this episode.
  • On the wall of the club in Mexico, it reads "La Casa de P..." or "The house of P..." in English. The last part of the sign is never seen
  • Robin, Cyborg, and Raven break the fourth wall while glancing at Beast Boy through the split-screen while he's still crying.
  • This episode is often incorrectly listed as "La Larva Amor".
  • This is the only episode where the title is shown to be orange and dark orange.


  • This is the second time that Starfire throws a tantrum. She briefly did so before in "The Date."
  • This is the first time we see Batman in person. He would later make reoccurring cameos throughout the series.
    • This is the first time Batman and Commissioner Gordon are seen together.
  • BAT-O's make another appearance, but this time as the actual cereal. The first times it was seen was in "Legendary Sandwich", "Driver's Ed", and "Double Trouble."
  • Robin was reading the same Batman comic he read at the supermarket from "Legendary Sandwich".
  • Robin's crush on Starfire is shown again when he looks for Silkie in her room but instead gets distracted by Starfire's things. ("The Date") He also writes "I Love Robin" on one of the photos in Starfire's Bedroom.
  • Robin's inability to not let Beast Boy be better than him at something is shown again from "Dude Relax."
  • This is the second romantic-themed episode of the series.
    • The first romantic-themed episode: "The Date".


  • There are many references during the Milk War:
    • In one of Robin's milk moustaches he is wearing a red cap and hitting a block that has a coin. This is a reference to Mario from Super Mario Bros. He also has the same moustache as the character.
      • Also, one of Robin's mustaches and hair resemble Albert Einstein's.
    • Likewise, Raven's last milk moustache and wooden staff is a reference to Gandalf the Grey from The Lord of the Rings.
    • Beast Boy has a stereotypical French milk moustache and has milk armpit hair. This is a reference to the stereotype of Europeans (specifically the French) not shaving armpits.
    • When Cyborg blows bubbles in the milk and surrounds Beast Boy in them, Beast Boy makes noises like Chewbacca from Star Wars. He even pulls out a bowcaster (a Wookie weapon).
    • Cyborg's first milk moustache is a mohawk and beard that looks a lot like Mr. T's.
  • While Silkie was floating on water he passed by a boat that had Batman fishing with Commissioner James Gordon.
    • The front of the boat featured Batgirl on it, much like how pirate ships would have mermaids or women sculpted onto their boat.
  • When Beast Boy looks in the couch, he pulls out a Green Lantern power ring before throwing it away.
  • When Robin looks under Starfire's bed he sees Deadman's / Boston Brand's remains.
  • When Silkie goes into the golf hole and rolls around in it, he passes by the tomb of Ra's al Ghul.
  • In the dungeon where Silkie and Sonia were kept, there is a poster of Bane (classic variant). This is the only time a picture of Bane is seen that's not The Dark Knight Rises variant.
  • Beast Boy parodies the saying "All's far in love and war" by saying "All's far in milk in war".
  • Raven holding an umbrella over herself to avoid Starfire's star bolts is a nod to the Looney Tunes character, Wile E. Coyote.
  • Silkie floats in a chicken bucket similarly designed to that of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC).


  • At the end, when the rest of the Titans are beat up and lying on the ground, Starfire's arm band (on her left arm) is missing.
  • Sonia Conchita Hernández is missing her mole on her left cheek when she gets close to Silkie.
  • In some scenes, Sonia is also missing her eyeshadows.
  • Cyborg and Raven have switched places for the second portion of the milk war despite never moving.
  • When Robin came in Starfire's room, there are no stuffed animals on her bed. However, in the next frame, Robin was shown with the stuffed animals and puts them back on the bed. This might be due to them being on the floor and Robin just put them back on their rightful spot.
  • Beast Boy says that he'd been saving the 10-year-old milk for a special occasion. As a teenager, he couldn't have been living in the Tower for that long, since he was still a kid.
    • Although it's possible he found the milk already in it's aged state.
  • The plate of cookies and the green cup was replaced with a big cup for Beast Boy and Cyborg despite never moving.
  • On some Latin-American airings of the episode, the episode is strangely displayed in 21:9 aspect ratio.

Running Gags

  • Silkie going from place to place without getting hurt.
