Teen Titans Go! is an American animated television series based off of a DC Comics superhero team, the Teen Titans. It was mainly created because of the successful New Teen Titans animated shorts. The show was originally released on Cartoon Network, like its predecessor.

There’s a more comedic aspect of Teen Titans Go! compared to the original Teen Titans show, along with a different animation design; however, Teen Titans Go! still retains the same characters (and new ones of course), and even including the same main voice actors to reprise their roles of the voices of the Titans. Teen Titans Go! is a spin-off of Teen Titans, not a reboot.

It was trademarked by DC Comics on March 6 2013, a month before its release in that year's April. [1]

Synopsis

Sure, they're still DC superheroes who save the day, but what happens when they're not fighting crime? They love to have fun and goof off, but they also have to deal with issues of being five teen roommates, whether that's chores and romantic tension or demon dad pop-ins and impromptu meatball parties. There's no shortage of pandemonium in the Tower as the Teen Titans get up to super-powered hijacks.

Characters

Since there are so many characters in Teen Titans Go!, only the main ones are listed below. However, here's a convenient link to a list of all the characters in the show: Character Guide.

Teen Titans

  • Robin (voiced by Scott Menville) - The self-appointed leader of the Titans who has a huge crush on Starfire. He has no toleration for either slacking or disrespect, even though that's what all the other Titans do.
  • Starfire (voiced by Hynden Walch) - A Tamaranian princess from the planet Tamaran who tries to learn Earth's culture and avoids Robin's constant obsession with her. She loves kittens, puppies and all things cute but watch out! Don't make her too mad or you get a laser to the face!
  • Cyborg (voiced by Khary Payton) - The cybernetic hero's many gadgets can come in handy in a battle, but his human side is more laid back and nonchalant. He is currently in a relationship with Jinx.
  • Raven (voiced by Tara Strong) - A Gothic female teenager who is from Azarath who is annoyed by everything and almost always in a dark mood, but that's understandable, considering she's half-demon, however, she has a love for Pretty Pretty Pegasus. She also has a "secret" romantic crush on her teammate Beast Boy.
  • Beast Boy (voiced by Greg Cipes) - Cyborg's best friend, to the point that they can finish each other’s sentences. He's got a thing for Raven. He also is a laid-back and at-times an irritating prankster. He is named for his human-to-animal metamorphism powers (alternatively shapeshifting).
  • Silkie (noises voiced by Tara Strong) - A giant larva moth, which is "the perfect pet" for Starfire. Also, he throws up a lot, just to let you know. He is actually very intelligent, which is unknown to the Titans, even though intelligence was one of Silkie's 5 core parts in "Some of Their Parts".

H.I.V.E. Five

  • Gizmo (voiced by Lauren Tom) - Even though he looks like and is often confused for a five years old, he still manages to be the leader of the H.I.V.E.. He rivals Cyborg with his tech skills.
  • Jinx (voiced by Lauren Tom)- A dangerous Gothic super villainess who can shoot powerful hex blasts and manipulate objects (able to manipulate Cyborg, too).
  • Mammoth (voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson) - The super-strong and destructive addition to the H.I.V.E. Five. The damage he can cause is, well, mammoth.
  • See-More (voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson) - Able to shoot laser beams out of his eye lens, See-More is not to be trifled with, unless it's the Titans, of course.
  • Billy Numerous (voiced by Scott Menville) - He can multiply himself by the dozens and attack the Titans from all sides... that, or he can play video games with his clone.

Reaction

Teen Titans Go! has been met with mixed reactions. Almost immediately upon the series' release, fans of the original Teen Titans complained that the show was not as well written or animated as the previous show. However, most media reviewers had a reaction to the contrary, believing that this was a well done reinvention of the classic series. Most negative feedback from the fans involves the change in tone, as many complained that the series should be dramatic, not comedic. Interestingly, children have apparently taken the series very well, as it has performed positively far beyond expectations. The series has garnered record ratings among children, with it currently being the number one show on Cartoon Network.

The series creators have taken note of the negative feedback, often treating it as a joke and making references to it in the series itself. In several episodes, the Titans mention that they are un-liked by fans of the previous series who considers Teen Titans Go! as an "abomination" along with other negative descriptions.

In "The Fourth Wall", the Titans become aware of their original counterparts, commenting that they were much cooler before and even questioned why not having a sixth season of the previous series to answer cliffhangers. "The Return of Slade" features the Titans commenting on the satisfying resolution of the original series that no one else will ever get to see. The episode "Wally T" gave the most blatant references, with the cast in awe that they had even one fan. Robin even questioned their fan further, asking which iteration of the Titans he preferred. In "Brain Percentages", when Robin refutes Cyborg's claim that TV shows are dishonest, an image promoting that a sixth season of the original Teen Titans series is coming soon suddenly pops up. As in "The Chaff", the writers of the series even go as far as to state that as long as it still provides cash flow for Cartoon Network, it won't finish for the time being, which ends up predicting it getting a sixth season.

Pushed aside from all the negativity this show receives, it is very successful and has been nominated more than once for a Kids Choice Award and even Emmy's. In fact, it has won a BAFTA in late 2019.

Collaborations

Mighty Magiswords

Teen Titans Go!, along with other Cartoon Network shows, had a collaboration with Mighty Magiswords in the app "MagiMobile". It had Magiswords based on some of the characters for players to collect, including Booyah Magisword, Beast Mode Magisword, Demon Rage Magisword, Laser Eye Magisword and Robin Magisword.

Trivia

  • Although set to premiere 10 years after the 2003 series it is based on, it is just a mere coincidence.
  • This series is the first Cartoon Network show to reach beyond 300 episodes.
    • It is also the first DC animated property to go beyond 5 seasons, which has been the highest limit for most DC cartoons.
  • Teen Titans Go! has more episodes than the original series.
    • However, each episode is only 11-ish minutes in length, instead of being 22 minutes per episode.
    • In spite of the short length of each episode (if multi-parters are counted separately), it usually takes about 17 months, from the start of storyboards to the final delivery. On average, it requires 9 months for a single episode.
  • In the series "Mad", which is a show producer/co-creator Aaron Horvath worked on, there is a parody of Teen Titans called "Teen Titanic".
  • The show has the same name as a series of unrelated comics that followed the original Teen Titans series.
    • Despite this, the comic series endorses the show this wiki is named after, of course, Teen Titans Go!.
  • According to what Greg Cipes said at San Diego Comic Con 2016, the show is currently the number one show on Cartoon Network, and one of America's top shows of all shows.
  • Teen Titans Go! has been nominated four times in a row for a Kid's Choice Award for Favorite Cartoon but always ended up getting defeated by SpongeBob Squarepants. Previous nominations were at the KCA 2015, KCA 2016, KCA 2017 and KCA 2018.
  • Teen Titans Go! has had a 2017 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Short Form Animated Program.
  • On October 8, 2018, the series had a non-canon crossover episode with OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes, Ben 10, and Steven Universe. The episode is an episode of OK K.O.! that featured Raven, Ben Tennyson from Ben 10 and Garnet from Steven Universe.
  • In Young Justice: Outsiders, a parody of the Go! series was referenced in an episode that featured a short segment titled "Doom Patrol Go!" with Beast Boy and the Doom Patrol animated in the Go! animation style.
    • This may be because of Greg Cipes, who also voices Beast Boy in Young Justice: Outsiders respectively.
  • Ever since its release, Teen Titans Go! has received numerous hate complaints and strong hateful criticism from viewers. This is most likely because how it differs from the fan favorite original series.
  • Teen Titans Go! went from a TV Y7 rating to a PG rating as of mid 2019.
  • This is the process of an episode of this series being produced:
    • After the script has been written and the actors have their voices recorded, the director and two storyboard artists have only about 4-5 weeks to create the rough draft of the episode.
    • It proceeds to design (backgrounds/characters/props) within a week's limit.
    • After being sent to the animation studio, animators get about 10-11 weeks to animate the story.
    • It is then given to the in-house animators to finish the retakes, before off to the post production department.
    • Eventually everyone gets one last look to fix any last minute things, and finally it's sent to Cartoon Network for broadcasting.
      • The overall process is 9 months.
  • It is animated at Copernicus Studios in Halifax, NS.
