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.

    SO it is in the same continuity as the old show, right? I really liked that interpretation of Raven.

  • Ram510

    So I hope this means Green Lantern is cancelled cause it’s awful. And they need to keep Thundercats

  • AniMatsuri

    Awesome! Teen Titans: the sitcom!

  • Aerilyn

    @Ram510 Green Lantern isn’t awful. What are you talking about? The animated series actually developed into something good.

  • Ram510

    Every time I’ve tried to get into Green Lantern it’s just been dull. This past Saturday’s episode was almost entertaining but still lack luster.

    And it irritated me that before the premiere, CN was advertising Green Lantern a lot and not Young Justice and so far Green Lantern is losing viewers and now Thundercats even has more viewers than GL and Thundercats is on the verge of being cancelled. Young Justice is by far CN’s best show as far as quality, they need to show some love to YJ and also drop dead weight like GL, people clearly just aren’t in to it

  • Marcus

    I hope it’s in 2D like the gorgeous Young Justice. Green lantern isn’t bad but looks cheap.

  • TN

    @ Ram510 just because you’re not into it, don’t put the 1 million viewers that do watch it in your own category.

    Perhaps one can’t enjoy it if you don’t have an imagination and might be dull yourself? Oh, and the series already ended, they’re airing reruns!

    Agreed that Thundercats need to go, oy, what an awful show, people just aren’t into it.

  • Ram510

    @TN

    Your first sentence alone explains why Green Lantern needs to go, low viewership! Over ther past weeks it just keeps getting shedding viewers. People, not just myself, just aren’t connecting with this show (I’m not even going to get into how awful the movie was and could only imagine low merchandise sales). Young Justice is CN’s star show.

    At least Thundercats have been gaining viewers and was very steady in its run last summer, GL can’t say the same

  • Ram510

    Young Justice shouldn’t have to have the sinking ship that is Green Lantern as a lead in

  • Stefwhit

    I’m also ready to say goodbye to GL. The show had such promise but it’s beyond bad. The rest of the lineup is good and I can see this new Teen Titan fitting in nicely.

  • Rafael

    Let’s hope CN continues the storyline of season 5. We need Terra to come back >:O

  • Robert

    Green Lantern is actually quite good. It does have a slow plot because it was trying to develope characters with depth. If you find those little “dc nation” shorts with the TEEN TITANS entertaining, then you’re not at the age level to be watching Green Lantern…

    Young Justice is the best of them all. I like where they are taking this show and I hope it sticks around for another season.

  • kenzie

    i heard its chibi will they bring back the full episodes? they need to have a part 2 of things changes so we can see wat happens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
