Teen Titans Go! Joining DC Nation

More than six years after the end of Cartoon Network’s popular Teen Titans animated series, the team will return in a new half-hour show as part of the cable channel’s DC Nation programming block.

Debuting in 2013, Teen Titans Go! feature the all-new comedic adventures of Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg, who now appear in chibi form in a series of well-received shorts airing on DC Nation. Like those “New Teen Titans” shorts, the show will employ a super-deformed style and feature the voices of original cast members Scott Menville, Hynden Walch, Khary Payton, Greg Cipes and Tara Strong. Here’s the official description:

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!

DC Nation, which airs Saturdays at 10 a.m. ET/PT, is currently anchored by Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice. The CG-animated Beware the Batman is expected tto be added to the lineup later this year. Teen Titans Go! is 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.

    I would prefer to see the non-chibi version of the show come back, but this makes me happy too.

    Like this, but if they’re going to be “Chibi” form anyway, why not make a “Tiny Titans” cartoon?

    So I’m assuming DC Nation is turning into a two-hour block next year? That’s fine, even if I think the new Batman show will be garbage. Just don’t mess with my GL and Young Justice.

  • Dangriffin598

    Why not make SBFF or Animal Man a half hour long. Those are my two favorite shorts.

    Let the Titans cartoon stay as a short because we already have young justice for a titans cartoon at the moment.

  • tomstewdevine

    Awesome, I love Teen Titans. 

  • Ramone

    Agreed.

    I actually love this idea. I was a huge fan of both the original TT show and the Tiny Titans comic. The shorts seem to blend the best of both these things. I think that it could work well as a show all its own. The episodes don’t have to be the full 21 minutes They could break each episode up into three 7 minute shorts, similar to what was done with Garfield and Friends back in the 80s. It’d work perfectly like that, imo.

    I presume this means that “Green Lantern: The Animated Series” has been renewed? I wasn’t sure of it’s future after that lackluster finale that aired a few weeks agi.

  • thesnappysneezer

    Cool but I would rather Super Best Friends Forever as a a full series. 

  • Jorell Rivera

    This is awesome!

  • ATK

    Sorry to say no, only 13 eps were ordered for the first season ans no official word yet if it’s been renewed for more. Hope so though, GL and YJ both Kick Ass.

  • Al from Jersey

    Really? Super Best Friends Forever is not that great. Barely works as a short.

    Dc Nation keeps rollin’ while Marvel Block is stumblin’.

  • thesnappysneezer

     It is the best thing in the block

  • Drew_Melbourne

     If you like GL and Young Justice, why are you automatically assuming that the new Batman will be terrible? I mean, it may be terrible, but it seems a lot healthier just to have no opinion until facts become unavailable…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_46ZJJFEBLQRLXYD66FSPRDW25Q Jugga Lord

    To be fair, Avengers is really only getting rebooted so that they can create a joint universe between that and Spider-Man. At least that was the rumor. It would make sense though seeing as how it has worked out so well for them in the movies. Add Hulk: Agents of Smash to the mix and they’ve suddenly got a decent block for their shared universe. All they’d need would be a decent mutant-oriented series.

    Young Justice is ending after this season , so this will likely replace it on the line-up. 

  • AdamH12110

    After a show has been cancelled for years, it’s very unlikely that they’ll just bring it back.  This is more than I even expected.

  • theConundrumm

    this is good news indeed, made even better by bringing back the original voice cast… nobody but Tara Strong could voice Raven…

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/S33OUGZBHPQX5HG37CM2FQK6HA Kent

    It was not cancelled due to low ratings… five seasons of 13 episodes, 65 episodes in total, is a standard run for a cartoon series.  And shows with low ratings don’t get a follow-up full-length movie episode either.

  • johnBgallagher

    Art and Franco from Tiny Titans should get a royalty payment for showing that this idea can work.

    Maybe when Chris Giarusso gets his super hero squad check — ah yeah, snarky!

  • William Hodge

    I feel the same way too Michael Frenchenopolous.  But I’ll take a wait and see attitude.

    From what I remember the series seemed to have an ending. I could be wrong and it’s been years. Were there any loose ends that were left untied or something? 

  • NP

    You know, I think it’s great it’s coming back. I use to watch it when I was 12 and it rocked my world!

    Never really thought it would come back, to be honest. Yeah the cartoon style is a little weird (BB looks too chilled out for me, I dunno) and it’s looks highly likely it won’t be a continuation from the first version (…well it has been six years, so don’t think it will…) but it’s good to see some sort of a revival of the series.

    I think the fans should be at least happy that the original cast are coming back and that its even coming back for starters.

    Just sayin’ ;-)

    I’m more than thankful for this new series, but what we all *wanted* (keyword) was a continuation of the old series.

    I always wanted to know a little bit more of the day-to-day life of the TT’s, but the old series was 80% content rich storyline and 20% chibi fun. There was no place for their day-to-day lives because there was such a huge rich story to be told. This new series is a whole different approach to TT’s, which makes it a little hard to digest for diehard fans.

    As for the animation? I really miss the old animation. It was part sexy American-style animation with touches of lighter Japanese anime. The sexiness of the series is what made it so interesting and mouthwatering. This new stuff is a little too childish for me and misses the mark within the TT universe.

    But, please take this with a grain of salt. It’s far too soon to make any major judgement. I think we all should be thankful that at least the series is having a comeback one way or another. At least were getting something!

    …You don’t always get what you want.

    Well, so what if the Teen Titans show is airing along with a serious superhero show? Did it not run along with Justice League before? Honestly, focusing on comedy never works. This was exactly why Ultimate Spiderman was a failure.

    xiolin showdown is coming back? Holy ShitBallz Batman!

  • Kingmike26

    I’m looking too see a more of age teen titans some what like young justice but a more advance look to them nothing futuristic thought, but be more aggressive with the story line, put them more on night time slot…. I understand they want to stay true to the younger kids but most of us are tired of the kids cartoonist thing, and maybe have some justice league features, Please no more lex story lines, i’m tired of lex move some of the story line out space our something, what do you think, maybe it just me

  • captaincommerce

    Young Justice is so much better than teen titans, they should just put raven starfire and cyborg  in young justice and call it a day

  • http://twitter.com/OHitzLaura Laura Flett

  • melissa
