Press Release

DC Nation, Cartoon Network’s home for action-packed animated series and original shorts based on characters from DC Comics (Saturdays 10:00–11:00 a.m. ET/PT), will soon be joined by a new generation of superheroes as Teen Titans Go!, a brand-new half-hour comedy-action series inspired by Warner Bros. Animation’s original fan-favorite series Teen Titans, shows the humorous side of being a teenage hero.

Teen Titans Go! features the return of Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg in all-new, comedic adventures. Character-driven comedy is the order of the day as this new take on the super hero series focuses on the funny business that happens between saving the world and living together as teenagers without adult supervision. They may be super heroes who save the world every day … but somebody still has to do the laundry! With the ability to turn into any animal or detach their robotic limbs, teenage pranks reach a whole new level. And even super heroes have to take Driver’s Ed. to get a license – especially after wrecking the Batmobile on an unauthorized joy ride to impress a girl!

Featuring the principal voice cast from the original series – Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Scott Menville as Robin, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Tara Strong as Raven and Hynden Walch as Starfire – Teen Titans Go! recaptures everything audiences loved about the original show, while adding laughter at the lighter side of being a super hero. Executive produced by Sam Register (Green Lantern: The Animated Series, The Looney Tunes Show, Teen Titans), with Michael Jelenic (ThunderCats, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) and Aaron Horvath (MAD, El Tigre) as producers, this side-splitting series will premiere on Cartoon Network in 2013 as part of the DC Nation programming block.

    Neat! Most of the shorts have been pretty funny, so I wouldn’t mind a whole show of them. That one with the Mad Mod in particular was golden. Now, if I can just convince CN to put its fear of girl cooties aside and give Lauren Faust’s cute-goofy SBFF shorts a similar show…

    Young Justice is nearly as good as Batman the Animated Series. It’s only that TAS was so groundbreaking that puts it over the top. If you aren’t watching it you’re missing out.

      I’m eight episodes into Young Justice and so far it’s a good show, but not of the same calibre as B:TAS, and definitely not on the same level as Justice League. I can see it reaching that level, though, since it’s already improved noticeably compared to the first episode.

    Cool! I’ve only caught a few of the short features, but the ones I’ve seen have been fun, and I really liked the original series. Here’s hoping they can sustain a full-length show with the more comedic tone.

    I dunno, While I do like comedic cartoons, I thought the original had just enough comedy and just enough seriousness.

    I’m not to keen on the new look, wish this show was just picking up where the original left off, and not some re-make.

    But who knows, maybe my mind might change whenever I get to see it.
