TEEN TITANS GO! Has Official Start Date

We’ve known about it for some time now. Cartoon Network just sent out the official press release with the news that Teen Titans Go! will be part of the new lineup. Featuring the same cast from the original Teen Titans show, the new iteration has a more “Chibi” style animation and will hit the air April 23rd at 7:30pm Eastern, with a re-broadcast during DC Nation on Saturday mornings.

This particular version of the show will be more comedy-oriented, much like the shorts currently featured in DC Nation. The team will have their crime-fighting moments, certainly, but it appears that those moments will be the interruptions among the rest of the adolescent humor setups.

The voice cast includes Scott Menville (Robin), Hynden Walch (Starfire), Tara Strong (Raven), Greg Cipes (Beast Boy), and Khary Payton (Cyborg); the original theme gets a makeover by Beastie Boys alum “Mix Master Mike”.

 

Jason P. Hunt

Jason P. Hunt (founder/EIC) is the author of the sci-fi novella "The Hero At the End Of His Rope". His short film "Species Felis Dominarus" was a finalist in the Sci Fi Channel's 2007 Exposure competition.

  • I don’t understand why this was given an okay while Young Justice is being discontinued.

    • One theory I’ve heard bandied about has to do with merchandising. “Young Justice” and “Green Lantern” drew an older audience, and they tend to be more careful with how they spend their money. “Teen Titans Go!” may draw in a younger group, who will want the toys. So more merchandising dollars in addition to the syndication fees.

      It’s a cynical theory, and I don’t know how much truth there is to it, but it’s easy enough to believe that something like this would factor into it. And I expect the New 52 plays a part as well, since “Young Justice” isn’t within that continuity.

  • I hope it’s not that much different than the original. This was one of my favorite cartoons. I watched this one with my kids and didn’t mind doing so.

    • This new version is going to focus more on the comedic aspects of being a teenage superhero. More like the shorts they run on “DC Nation” now, as opposed to the more serious version from before.
