For the time being Cartoon network has redeemed itself from killing off good shows and bringing on some shows that just I don’t want to even think about. I finally had the chance to sit down and watch Teen Titans Go! which aired April 23rd. As Los Angeles melts in this horrible hot day, I managed to get a cool breeze through my front door and decided to watch. Let me tell you, this show is quite genius! I really love it so far especially for only being a few episodes in I already can’t wait for next Tuesday.
This isn’t your typical superhero show there is nothing serious toned about it, its all silly. I mean compared to the other Teen Titan shows we grew up with this is a big change and it’s good. The shows premise is following the Titans on their days off and they just get into random hilarious shenanigans. The best part is all the voice actors came back to reprise their roles. Scott Menville as Robin , Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Tara Strong as Raven, and last but not least Hynden Walch as Starfire.
In addition the Titans have stayed they way they were too which gives the show that extra kick. Starfire and her lack of understanding our Earth customs, Beast Boy’s lack of maturity, Raven and Robin are still the serious types with Robin being more of a control freak and finally the fun loving Cyborg. Something I noticed as well if you pay very close attention there are some “easter eggs” of sorts and that’s what I really love. It’s actually very weird of me to point it out only because they are very random details to notice, like a little stuffed Drakseid and a Plastic Man pillow pet like doll. I really recommend this show for not only some chuckles but it will make you want to just go d’aww because of the animation, come on how can one resist little chibi like versions of the Teen Titans.
