"The Titans Show" is the forty-fifth episode of the third season of Teen Titans Go!, and the one-hundred-forty-ninth overall episode of the series.

Summary

The Titans try to get off the island but they soon realize everything is not what it appears to be.

Plot

The episode begins with the titans inside their tower made out of parts from the island. Cyborg and Beast Boy play a video game, while Raven wonders how many ponies she can count to and Starfire also gets bored. The titans realize that they have run out of things to do on the island and are officially bored.

Starfire says that when they arrived on the island, it seemed fun, but now it is the boring. The Titans say that they should escape the island and head back home, but Robin interrupts the conversation by blowing a seashell, and tells them that they have lost their minds about leaving the island and that if they were in a TV show it would be a week-long event, but raven says that it isn't. Starfire says that a battle between their greatest villains would have been more fun, but robin says that isn't what an Island Adventure is all about. Cyborg then says that robin should stay on the island, while he and the others escape. They grab on to a hang glider (that is made out of leaves and sticks) and fly away home, but is disintegrated by a volcano. They later build a raft to escape on, but a hole appears and sinks into the ocean and the titans are attacked by sharks.

Then they launch themselves on a catapult, but they are eaten by a dinosaur and the dinosaur spits them out. As they crash land on the ground, Robin tells them to remember that the Island is inescapable, and that they learned about that on their first island adventure. The titans groan, but robin makes them listen to Island Adventure. The song tells them about how they battled with dinosaurs, how they met the rich billionaires, how an alien wanted to take their skulls, how they had a fashion show, ate pure protein, had their wishes granted and how raven interacted with coconut cream pies. The song then reveals that the island is actually FAKE and one of the trees are actually fake. The titans are then surprised that the island they are on is fake.

Cyborg knocks the tree and is surprised that it is a cardboard counter display and knew that the song was right. Robin walks to the other trees and says that there all fake, and says that why they didn't notice it before. Raven says that it is because they never walked behind them and Starfire says that only weirdos do that. Robin then notices that if everything is either real or fake. Cyborg grabs a rock and gasps that it is actually made out of foam. Starfire grabs a banana and also gasps that it has a microphone inside of it. Raven then spots a crab with a camera on it and gasps to. Beast Boy then reveals that his freckle is shaped like Mickey Mouse, but Cyborg says that it is a meatball sub, while Starfire says that it is a unicorn riding a cloud, and Raven says that it is a human skull, but Robin interrupts the conversation and says to stop, but then says it is two bears hi-fiving.

The others agree and say that they need to find a way to see if it is all fake. Cyborg then spots a hatch on the sky and Robin then tells them that it could be another Island Adventure, but the titans say that it won't be. They reach the hatch and climb out of the hatch door and see a room filled with screens and wonder who is watching them. The screens are then turned off by Control Freak, who greets them and Robin knew that the mastermind of TV would behind all of this. Control Freak reveals that he hijacked their yacht, wiped out their memories, and placed them on a fake island inside a big arena. Robin asks why he done that. Control Freak said that he was tried of watching them in their normal environment such as the living room and kitchen, but Starfire says that they go on the roof sometimes and Raven interrupts by saying that they also go to the lawn too. Control Freak then says that he wants them to too something exciting for once like an Island Adventure, then he turns the screens back on to reveal Sticky Joe relaxing on the island, but Robin says that his show is over and the titans want to return to their normal environment.

Control Freak agrees, but then says that their audience won't be happy about it. Robin gets confused and Control Freak then says that the show wasn't just for him and wanted other people to see it. Control Freak then presses a button on his remote and the screens start to open slowly and the titans stare at the opening until the doors fully open, only to reveal the titans greatest villains. Robin is then surprised to see all of their greatest foes, watching them. Starfire then is confused why people put their time and effort on just watching them. Beast Boy then tells her that if she has ever been in the internet and gives her a tablet, revealing what people actually say to them, hurting their feelings.

Control Freak then tells them that only most of the viewers that watch their show are haters, but Control Freak then says that they could stop the show, but the audience won't let them do that. He presses a button to heckle the audience. The audience yells at them because they don 't want the show to end. Beast Boy is surprised by their yelling, Cyborg then says that a battle with them was going to get good, and Raven then says that it is more better than an Island Adventure, but Robin groans and agrees with the titans to fight their foes. Robin then yells GO! and the titans set out to fight their foes. Billy Numerous attacks Robin, which Robin fights back using his staff.

Cyborg fights The Brain and the Brain Soldiers, using his cannons and aims at the targets, which causes The Brain to explode. Flex and Muscle attack Robin, but Robin notices and throws two birdrangs at them, but the latter use their telekinesis to fire back on Robin and Robin is then set on flames. Beast Boy sees him bouching, but Mallah attacks Beast Boy, which Beast Boy turns into a Gorilla to fight Mallah and throws him at the Giant Robotic Alien. Starfire uses her Eyebeams to fire at many directions, until she notices a set of Blackbolt Eye-Beams firing in the background. She turns around only to reveal her sister Blackfire firing at her. Blackfire then uses Lilac Fire Generation, in which she uses to aim at Starfire and Starfire then lands on the ground. Blackfire then joins forces with See-More and Doctor Light and the latter use Lilac Fire Generation, Light-Beams and Laser Eye on Starfire, but Starfire uses Eyebeams to attack the latter. It creates a huge ball of light that causes Starfire to aim it more, but loses when the latter give it what they got.

Terra uses her powers to lift up platforms for Rose Wilson to attack. The platform goes at full speed and Rose gets her sword ready to attack Raven, but Raven uses her Magiportation to open a portal and causes Rose to go inside of it and the portal opens near Terra and causes Rose to crash land on her. Raven celebrates her victory, but Trigon taps on her shoulder and Raven turns around only to see her father flicking his finger and causing her to crash somewhere. Cyborg and Beast Boy see Gizmo's Robot in front of them ready to attack them, but Cyborg turns a Missile and Beast Boy hops on.

Cyborg then shoots missiles at the robot, which causes it's head to explode (only to see that nobody is controlling it). Beast Boy and Cyborg land on top of it, and celebrate their victory by Hi-fiving, but Gizmo appears in the background on his Spider-legs and throws the two of them on the right wall. Beast Boy and Cyborg land with the rest of the titans, recovering from their injuries, only to see that their too many villains for them to fight. Raven says that their too many of them and they need do something about it. Robin says that their is only one way to fight them and throws a birdarang on a lever, which the screen doors open, only to reveal the Dinosaurs, Alien Skull Collector, The Sports Equipment, and Magic Starfire Cat. The doors fully open, revealing the Island Extras. Robin says that the Island Adventures really did help them and then commands the titans and Island Extras to attack the villains (by shouting "GO!"). Starfire and her Pterodactyl attack Killer Moth, Mumbo Jumbo, Mad Mod, Brother Blood and Mother Mae-Eye, which the five of them run for their lives after Starfire uses Starblasts and the Pterodactyl shots out missiles at them, in which later they explode. Cinderblock attacks Beast Boy and his Tyrannosaurus Rex. Cinderblocks punches them, but the Tyrannosaurus Rex attacks using it's Robo-fists, which causes Cinderblock to crumble into pieces.

Plasmus attacks Raven and her Triceratops. Raven commands her Triceratops to use Laser Horn, which shoots at Plasmus and holes appear, but Plasmus reseals the holes, but Raven uses a Mega Missile to destroy Plasmus, which eventually she does causing him to explode. Alien Skull Collector attacks the Robots using his laser gun, in which all of them eventually explode. Billy Numerous is then seen in the background, preparing to fight the Alien Hunter, but the Alien uses Wolverine-like claws to attach Numerous, but Billy Numerous gets scared and runs to the nearest exit and enters the door, hoping to be safe, but Robin's Velciraptor opens the door and attacks Numerous. Control Freak sees the battle on his screens, only to reveal Robin attacking Honk with his staff, Starfire using her Eye-Beams on Blackfire and Beast Boy as an Elephant attacking See-More. Control Freak gets all sweaty.

Robin uses the sports equipment to attack Doctor Light. The Volleyball, Basketball and Pirate Skull attack Doctor Light in the face, with Robin slapping him with a Hockey Stick. Mammoth roars, only to be crushed by Cyborg's Brontosaurus foot. The rich Wife and Husband uses their cash bags to wack Muscle and Flex's brains. The Alien Skull Collector appears in a dark valley in the background (with red eyes) and grabs The Brain's head. Magic Starfire Cat goes up against Trigon, Scary Teri, Jinx, and Vegetor and uses Rainbow Manipulation to weaken them. The titans defeat all their enemies and go up against Control Freak, but Control Freak tries to escape on his chair before the Titans attack him, but Robin throws his Birdrangs and Beast Boy turns into a Octopus to throw them at Control Freak, causing his chair to explode. The titans celebrate and Raven says that they should fight more because they are superheroes.

Robin then says that his Summer Event is over and he has failed, but Control Freak says that they turned his island idea into something super cool and genre appropriate and calls it a stunt. Control Freak says that they have received more viewers from his summer event. The doors open in the background and fully open, only to reveal Slade and Batman's (and other Justice League members) enemies. The camera zooms to Slade, who gets surprised when "Island Adventure" is said and Control Freak says "Freak Out". The episode ends.

Trivia

Continuity

  • This is the second episode where Control Freak complains about the Titans and the show. The first time was in "The Fourth Wall".
  • Raven is seen unhooded for the 44th time in this series.
  • This episode foreshadows 2 future episodes, as Robin's birdarang mp3 player had 2 song's called "Booty Scooty" and "Ride The Dragon" from Booty Scooty and Riding the Dragon, respectively.

References

  • The freckle on Beast Boy's bottom apparently looks like Mickey Mouse, according to Beast Boy.
    • Also, whilst the other Titans argue over what his freckle looks like, Robin concludes that, "Obviously, it's two bears high-fiving." This is a reference to a joke revolving around Fallout: New Vegas, in which many players thought a picture in an ink-blot test was a pair of bears high-fiving, despite not being a choice listed in-game.
  • This episode's title and plot are obvious references to the 1998 movie The Truman Show; starring Jim Carey. This is evidenced by the Titans being recorded with cameras on an island inside a giant dome without their knowledge and watched by many people.
  • There is a site named "DCUmblr" seen in the episode. It is an obvious parody of Tumblr.
  • Cyborg and Beast Boy play a coconut version of the classic arcade game Pong.

Errors

  • Santa Claus should have been with the villains since he is an enemy of the titans.
  • Benjamin Franklin was sucked back inside Raven's book in Books, but somehow managed to get out of the book.
  • All of Starfire's Deathbots were destroyed in Starfire the Terrible, but one managed to escape.
  • Oddly, Scary Teri was sucked back inside the mirror at the end of Slumber Party, but somehow she escaped.
  • The Twin Destroyers of Azarath were eventually placed back in their cedar chest at the end of Love Monsters, but somehow they managed to escape.
  • All three of the Sandwich Guardians were destroyed by Cyborg, Starfire and Beast Boy in Legendary Sandwich, but one (which may have survived from the attack) appears.
  • The Perfect Sandwich is eaten by Robin in Sandwich Thief, but it somehow managed to get out of Robin's body.
  • Vegetor was blown up into pieces in Vegetables, but somehow, he came back to life.
  • Blackfire had reformed in Mr. Butt, yet she is shown to have returned to her old ways of villainy and long-time resentment of her younger sister.
  • During the battle near the end, at the beginning, The Brain is destroyed by Cyborg, however, he makes an appearance again at the end of the battle.
  • Although Control Freak claimed that the series itself has more fans than haters (even displaying a pie chart), he’s only half-correct because sadly the kids who adore this show are the minority while the show itself receives more backlash from the majority, especially on the Internet.

Running Gags

  • Robin repeatedly saying "Island Adventure".
  • Chorus singing "Island Adventure" a few times.
  • The Titans (except Robin) trying to escape the island and failing every time.

    • If only there was a sixth part of the special. However, it is awesome to see Slade in the show.
    • I had to take it upon myself to credit Caravan Palace. Cartoon Network used their favourite loophole "It isn't the exact song"...
