TEEN TITANS REIMAGINED FOR CARTOON NETWORK
THIS SPRING IN TEEN TITANS GO!
Animated Comedy Series Premieres on Tuesday, April 23 at 7:30PM (ET/PT)

The Teen Titans are returning to Cartoon Network with all-new comedic adventures, and this time they’re giving viewers a look at what life is really like as a teen superhero… once the cape comes off. The half-hour animated series, Teen Titans Go! premieres on Tuesday, April 23, at 7:30pm (ET/PT) and will be rebroadcast during the DC Nation block on Saturday mornings at 10:30am (ET/PT) beginning April 27.

The character-driven comedy series focuses on the funny that happens in between saving the world and living together as teenagers without adult supervision. The comedic mayhem of the animated series is punctuated by pranks and the occasional need to fight crime, but it will also deal with the everyday issues of adolescence. With epic staring contests to decide who does the laundry, a series of quests and battles to construct the perfect sandwich or fighting crime in Jump City , one thing is for sure, these Titans will always be ready for an adventure inside the house and out.

The principal voice cast from the original Teen Titans series, based on DC Comics characters, will reprise their roles in Teen Titans Go!, with Scott Menville as the voice of Robin, the slightly power-mad perfectionist and leader of the Teen Titans. Hynden Walch voices Starfire, an alien struggling to fit in; Tara Strong voices Raven, the sardonic, deadpan demon girl; Greg Cipes returns as the slightly dim but always loveable loafer, Beast Boy; and Khary Payton provides the voice of Cyborg, a laidback kid who is half teen, half robot.

The fan-favorite theme song from the original Teen Titans will also be making its return to television, with an updated remix from Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys.

Teen Titans Go! joins a strong Tuesday night block of programming on Cartoon Network which also includes Johnny Test (7:00pm ET/PT) and The Looney Tunes Show (8:00pm ET/PT). Teen Titans Go! can be seen again on Saturday mornings during the DC Nation block alongside Beware The Batman, which will premiere this summer. Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice Invasion will end their run on March 16.

Teen Titans Go! is produced by Warner Bros. Animation with Sam Register (MAD, Teen Titans, Batman: The Brave and The Bold) serving as executive producer with Michael Jelenic (ThunderCats) and Aaron Horvath (MAD) as producers.

    I can’t wait… until this series is canceled. The art style is totally unappealing and I still can’t believe Young Justice got canceled to make way for this. What a shame…

    1. Aaron

      Teen Titans is MUCH better than Young Justice anyways. I would prefer the older one to return, but this is good too.

    2. Elizabeth

      Teen Titans better than Young Justice? LOL

      To even compare such great series like YJ to TT is laughable at best.

    3. Giovanni Labrador

      No [[i]crap[/i]]!

    4. Gretel

      Yes, of course Teen Titams is soo much better than YJ! can’t wait for this!!

    5. steve

      what you nuts first teen titans the original is better and second young justice is way better then this love everything about it and the teen titans this go is more for laughs and kiddies

  3. Nike

    GARBAGE!!! Did those fools at DC really dump Young Justice for this?? Did a 9 year ols semi retarded girl develop this? Total trash….

  4. Stephan Anstey

    I am so disgusted by the moronic move away from the great stories being told in Green Lantern and Young Justice.

    I will be actively discouraging all children i know from watching this drek.

    You idiots should be ashamed.

    Pathetic.

  5. Erick

    I cant believe they’re cancelling Young Justice for this garbage. I’m sorry, I love DC but I can’t support this cartoon at all. YJ was one of the best comic based cartoons ever (yeah, I said it).

    1. Mike

      And you be 100% correct….

  6. lexy

    WooHoo! I can”t wait! I was sad when the series stopped airing but I’m glad it’s back…Cartoons just aren’t the same anymore…with this and sailor moon my year is complete!

  7. Rob

    Complete slap in the mouth to all the original Teen Titans fans. And to top it all off your removing Saturday morning cartoons like young justice and GL the animated. To make room for a show on a Tuesday evening. Idiots. You have gold in your hands and replace with awful awful programming.

  8. Bparks

    Personally, I’m glad they’re bringing back the characters I grew up with. Of coarse, I’m not entirely thrilled about the new look of the series, but then again it reminds of the new TMNT show. As long as it’s truly funny, I don’t mind it. I miss the original glory of Teen Titans, but this will do for a new generation of fans, and probably still make me laugh. So, good on yah mate, but maybe have this be a precursor to the return of a more serious—not as serious as Young Justice, which I’m happy died—return of the original Teen Titans. GO!

    1. Eddierox

      Yeah I bet you’re just the demographic they’re aiming for with this show: 5 years-old and retarded.Have fun with this, I’m boycotting this and Beware the Batman.CN is gonna see what a mistake it was to cancel GLTAS and YJ, the best shows to ever air on DC Nation. This piece of crap won’t last a season.

    2. FennecLynx

      I hate both Green Lantern and Young Justice, I’m glad they’re going away. To yell at us for liking a show like TTG, is a waste of time since it won’t change out minds, just stop now and keep your opinions to yourself before anything stupid happens.

    3. real

      lol & non-pc as heck but true!

  9. Wes

    This is all well and good but seriously? This is what’s to replace Green Lantern and Young Justice? DC Nation isn’t supposed to be quirky animated superhero teen comedies. It’s supposed to be comic book series based on characters who have very serious storylines. I don’t see any reason to to end Young Justice or Green Lantern. Just add Teen Titans go to them and I will be perfectly happy.

  10. coolman229

    I am not looking forward to this. In fact, I’m quite disgusted with it. This isn’t what I wanted. I wanted a continuation of the story, not a comedy series that doesn’t have any story. Do you really think that people want this? You’re cancelling Young Justice and GLTAS for this?

    It is still Teen Titans so I will still give it a shoot but I am not crazy about that art style, I feel like I just went through the same thing with Ben 10 (although that art is much MUCH worse). I think I can understand their reasoning, considering it seems their demo is young boys and something like this may attract them more than 23 year olds like myself, but I was a huge fan of Young Justice (as I was of the old Teen Titans, and Justice League). I dont get to see my favorite hero a whole lot on tv, since Green Arrow and his cohorts arn’t the most popular of the DC heros, Young Justice and Arrow is all I got. I guess now I am just left with Arrow, I do hope they come to their senses and put in a new Young Justice show though, however I kinda doubt it :/

  13. PJ

    Young Justice and GL is by far some of the best story telling in a long time so does anybody out there know why it’s going away. What is going on?

  14. Midhat Khan

    Does anyone else think Cartoon Network has this amazing ability to create hatred for shows before they even begin might be a marketing fail.. I mean it seems like a bad idea to directly address an existing fanbase’s hatred for cancellation towards their new releases, it doesn’t seem like they’re good at marketing wins..

  15. Alexis

    Why is the times for DC Nation still at 10am? I don’t think that most teenagers will wake up that early to watch television. I think that contributes to the low ratings for Young Justice… and Green Lantern… producers?? Anyone listening??

  16. Asagi

    The thing is, YJ had low ratings and Cartoon Network is one of those channels that would rather experiment until they get the ratings they want than wait for something to pick up, YJ would have been cancelled anyway even without TTG coming on air, the difference is it would have been replaced by something else and most likely not DC related (like Johnny Test or Scooby Doo) CN confirmed TTG back in very early 2012, long before YJ’s fate was decided, and at the time they didn’t know for sure when it would air, in fact I remember at first it was listed as a “2013 or 2014” premiere series, so they very well could have planned to air it BETWEEN YJ seasons, but with Young Justice not picking up they cancelled and replaced, also what has to be remembered is that the majority of CN veiwers (especially in the morning rather than at night) ARE little kids, little kids who don’t really care about the serious drama of things like YJ but want superheros and funny stuff, I remember when the first Teen Titans series was on (and by the way, I will forever love that show) I barely watched it and really only liked the wackier episodes, I don’t remember getting into the plots or anything at all because I was a little kid and just didn’t have the attention span for it, what’s sad, in my opinion, is that Cartoon Network unlike most channels that air kids’ shows doesn’t have a more open schedule to simply change timeslots for YJ, channels like Disney channel and Nickelodeon have the ability to make shows fit certain age groups, the little kids in the early morning and the teenagers between seven and ten at night, but Cartoon Network doesn’t do that and mixes it all up in one batch until Adult Swim takes over, in my opinion if CN tried moving YJ to a more compatable timeslot, like 10:00, when teenagers and adults are more able to veiw it and little kids are asleep, then YJ would do much better, but because Adult Swim starts around then I guess for some reason they don’t want to, that’s just my opinion on it, but anyway, don’t hate on TTG just because YJ was cancelled, one was going to happen regardless of the other and they both ended up happening

    Dear god, raven looks like a mutt… or a cat… could be a monkey. Hey wait a minute, that’s Beast Boy’s schtick– why does beast boy look like he escaped from a weird episode of Fairly Odd Parents? And is that supposed to be Robin? He looks like freaking Larry! Cyborg seems to have joined the Autobots in Transformers Animated in his spare time and Starfire… Actually, Starfire doesn’t look too bad. Kinda cute, actually. You could even say adorable. For some reason the style – and I use the term loosely – seems to actually fit her.
    Will give it a shot, for the sake of nostalgia, but will be ready to drop it like a rotten apple
