Teen Titans Go! is an American animated television series based on the DC Comics fictional superhero team, the Teen Titans. The series was announced following the popularity of DC Nation's New Teen Titans shorts,[2][3] both of which are based on the 2003 Teen Titans TV series. Teen Titans Go! is a more comedic take on the DC Comics franchise, dealing with situations that happen outside of saving the world.[3]

Sporting a new animation style, Teen Titans Go! serves as a "comedic" spin-off with no continuity to the previous series, and only certain elements are retained. Many DC characters make cameo appearances and are referenced in the background. The original principal voice cast returns to reprise their respective roles. The series is rated TV-PG.[citation needed]

Plot[edit]

Teen Titans Go! is a TV show that follows the Teen Titans when not saving the world and when living together as teenagers without adult supervision.[3] The Teen Titans must deal with situations such as teenage pranks reaching a whole new level, having to retake a driver's test after wrecking the Batmobile, taking part in dodgeball tournaments, and other "humorous" antics.[citation needed]

Reception[edit]

Teen Titans Go! has been met with mixed reviews from critics and fans, with praise toward the return of the original principal voice cast and criticism aimed toward the new direction of the show.

Common Sense Media gave the show 4 out of 5 stars and called it "Superheroes' new look, comical feel invites younger kids".[5] IGN gave the show a 7.8 out of 10, a "Good" score on the review scale, stating that "DC Nation revamps the beloved Teen Titans series for a new generation -- with pretty fun results".[6]

Writing for Slant Magazine, Lee Wang gave the show 2 stars out of 4, criticizing the lack of emotional depth compared to its predecessor, the Flash-based animation style commonly found on the network, and generic humor: "If not for the actors, whose talents can't save this lackluster material, Teen Titans Go would offer little to even the most ardent Titans nostalgists and completists."[7]

The pilot episode brought in 2 million viewers. On June 11, 2013, Cartoon Network renewed Teen Titans Go! for a second season, citing successful ratings.[8]

Broadcast[edit]

The series originally premiered on April 23, 2013 on Cartoon Network. It premiered on September 6, 2013 on Canada's Teletoon and on January 6, 2014 on Cartoon Network (Australia and New Zealand). Cartoon Network (UK & Ireland) began airing the show on April 5, 2014.
