"What's Opera Titans" is the thirty-third episode in the fifth season of Teen Titans Go!, and the two-hundred-forty-second overall episode of the series.


Robin surprises the Titans with a trip to the opera, but they soon fall asleep, and all dream about starring in their own operas.


It's TV time at Titans Tower, and the Titans are all geared up: popcorn (courtesy of Cyborg's mouth), new batteries for the remote, and a comfy couch. They're about to watch Toilet Cop—a movie about a cop turned cyborg toilet—but like usual, Robin interrupts the fun. This time though, he's got something good... tickets to the opera! Having never experienced such high-class entertainment, the Titans enthuse over the erudite performance. They arrive at the opera house, but as soon as the singing starts, the team dozes off...

Starfire starts to dream about being dressed in a cat suit, alone in the alleys and near starvation. She expresses her sorrow through operatic meowing, and Robin (also in a cat suit) joins the pity party. A garbage truck drops a box of gourmet treats, and the two cats start grappling over them. The fight escalates when they both start using extremely dangerous weapons systems. Unfortunately, a huge explosion reduces the kitty treats to dust, so neither of them get nourishment.

Tea time, but violent.

Meanwhile, Raven is dreaming about a relaxing tea party with Butterbean and Sparkleface in the Pretty Pretty Pegasus world. Suddenly, Gumdrop Goblin invades their get-together, nearly stomping the three of them out. They escape into the clouds, but the monster quickly pursues them. It's a big mistake, though—Raven and the two pegasi evolve into mighty warriors, then proceed to attack him. After a brutal battle, the three friends end up using Gumdrop Goblin's head as a teapot.

Somehow, Beast Boy and Cyborg are sharing the same dream; they're seated at a fancy dining table, eating some broccoli and a hamburger with dainty etiquette. A huge serving dish starts descending to the table, and once it touches down, the two Titans lose it: they break into a funky dance complete with Cyborg rubbing hamburgers on himself and the two admiring a hot broccoli body...

Robin's dream takes him back to his sidekick days with Batman. When the Caped Crusader leaves the Batcave for some rest, Robin starts fooling around with his mentor's super high-tech belt. It's filled with gadgets galore, but the Boy Wonder quickly loses control of it and ends up wrecking the lair. Batman's clearly furious, but luckily for Robin, Alfred is stuck with the cleanup.

The opera is interrupted when Robin starts laughing in his sleep, so the Titans are kicked out of the hall and back into the Tower. It's okay, though: they may not be high-brow enough for the opera, but they can still watch Toilet Cop!


What is this, Halloween Hanukkah?

The Titans are so socially elite, you can't even talk to them.

A platter of macarons. Exquisite.

Main Characters

Minor Characters





He might be a toilet, but you don't want to mess with him.

  • This episode's title is a nod to the classic Bugs Bunny cartoon, "What's Opera, Doc?".
    • It also shares the same premise as "What's Opera, Arnold?" from "Hey Arnold!".
  • Toilet Cop is a spoof of RoboCop, a movie about a police officer who transformed into a powerful cyborg.
  • During Raven's dream, the song "Ride of the Valkyries" by Wilhelm Richard Wagner plays.
  • Starfire's dream opera is the "The Duetto buffo di due gatti" ("humorous duet for two cats"), more commonly known as Cat Duet.
  • The "Flower Duet" plays during the beginning of Cyborg and Beast Boy's dream.
  • Towards the end of Raven's dream, she transforms into a Valkyrie, a female figure in Nordic culture who escorts the dead to Valhalla.
    • Her outfit as the goddess is similar to She-Ra, the titular character from the TV series She-Ra: Princess of Power and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.
    • The way she shot magic from her lollipop wand is quite similar to how Star Butterfly, the protagonist from Star vs. The Forces of Evil, wields the wand's magic to cast spells (which is ironic since Star Butterfly herself ultimately decides to destroy magic in the series finale).
  • Robin's way of getting the tickets is a parody of Phantom of The Opera, with Robin depicting himself as Christine Daaé and the creepy guy at the basement as "The Phantom".
  • During Robin's dream, the music is likely based on the Tom and Jerry episode, "The Hollywood Bowl".
    • Him carrying buckets in his dream is a reference to Disney's Fantasia''s "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" opening, when Mickey Mouse was carrying buckets.
