It’s tough to keep a good superhero team down, and now (although they’ve been off the air for more than five years), Cartoon Network has recently announced it will bring back its popular Teen Titans animated series in the form of the more lighthearted Teen Titans Go!

Cartoon Network initially brought the animated and occasionally super-deformed Teen Titans back as animated shorts, which aired during DC Nation, the network’s hour-long block of superhero programming. Beyond Teen Titans Go!, the shorts and interstitials have featured the likes of Plastic Man, Vibe, as well as the Atom and have apparently become quite the draw in and of themselves.

According to Cartoon Network, the TTG! shorts, featuring a chibi style version of the team, have proven popular enough to warrant joining the growing ranks of DC Nation sometime next year. Right now, the DC-centric animation block features Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series, but will have an all-new CGI animated Batman series, Beware the Batman added to the line-up very soon.

Despite the gap between the end of Teen Titans and this stylistically different version of the team, Teen Titans Go! has managed to secure the familiar voice talents of the original cast including: Scott Menville (Robin), Khary Payton (Cyborg), Greg Cipes (Beast Boy), Tara Strong (Raven) and Hynden Walch (Starfire).

An official press release from the network stated:

“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!”

Considering the current offerings are all action-oriented and targeted primarily at the young male demographic, lightening things up with 22 minutes of comedy would certainly help court a wider audience. Additionally, should Teen Titans Go! prove a success, it may allow for an even more expansive line-up on DC Nation that could include full episodes of shorts like Super Best Friends Forever or the ongoing adventures of Plastic Man.

Given that Cartoon Network airs DC Nation on Saturday mornings, gearing an expansion of this kind toward a broader audience may prove to be a successful test for the continuation of their DC Comics-inspired animation block.

Teen Titans Go! shorts can currently be seen during DC Nation, which airs Saturdays @10am on Cartoon Network.

  1. Beca use thru are stupid. They think they’ll make money this way. I just hope once people yell at them when TTG starts they’ll open heir eyes,vtje creators of this car have never even seen the original show

  2. These comments will really start piling up as we inch closer to the premiere. I think it is too late for them to do anything so we must suffer.

  3. They can’t stop the stupid go series,vtjey bop vinous,y won’t. But it doesn’t mean it’s too late. If enough people are mad, CN could or cancel the go series, or once the go series ends bring back the old show. It seems impossible but people will probably work harder by the time this new series comes out to bring the original back. You’ll be surprised b how many dont like this TTG. Til then let’s wait and hope for the best.

  4. indeed thank you for talking with me i will be praying and will retain hope thank you

  5. No problem?p! I mp know it feels hopeless, I feel that way at times too. But TT is a great show, one of the few good things left of DC at the moment. We should fight at least a little longer, that’s better than only complaining. Amd if I’d doesn’t work,vat least we can say we tried.

  6. if anyone hears anything about the show, the rumor being true or anything, please let me know or if theres anything i can do to help bring back the real titans.

    • If you haven’t already sign the petition if you want, it’s easey.

  7. I agree please if you know anything post it bad or good it does not matter if anyone knows anything let us know

  8. So far not much people keep signing the petition and the rumor is still around. If you guys wanna helpvivsuggest spreading the word on TT Facebook fan pages and on TTG YouTube videos to sign the petition and write to CN! Til then let’s keep our fingers crossed!

  9. sure can you just post a ad for the petition dont onow the site to go to or whatever so can you just write an ad thing then i can just copy paste it aroud youtube?

  10. Ima cry this is stupid as fu** this just ruined my childhood looking at this

  11. Everyones upset by this everyone who loves the real TT. But lets try to be positive. Maybe it won’t be that bad. At least the Titans get a revival. And they could bring back theold one if this chibi thing doesn’t work. Lets just wait and see. Plus whatever happens we’ll always have the original series, it isn’t going anywhere.

  12. im sorry to say this but we are never going to see our teen titans again not after this.

  13. Don’t say that it’s not for sure, if to wanna give up go for it. But I’ve see. Comments for the TTG promos on CN on Facebook everyone is angry by what they did to TT. I have a feeling people will write their anger to CN once the show starts. I still have hope. If ur just gonna complain or npbe pessimistic well that’s ur choice. But st least so,e of us are trying to do something about it . If u wanna help write to CN.

  14. if they want to make money they should bring back the old teen titans instead of this. I pray that will happen

  15. I agree with you finally someone with hope. We gotta write to CN to make them listen, if enough of us do so I think we have a shot, lets not give up hope yet and pray

  16. does anyone know if becaus of new show they will show reruns of old show on cartoon network?

  17. I don’t believe so but it’s still on Boomerang of you wanna see it, and I’ve seen a lot of people pissed on fb over this go series. I really want there to be a huge fan outcry

    • I believe we’re in the midst of a fan outcry XD

  18. I hope so lol but I mean cus all over Facebook and YouTube all I see is people complaining. What I meant by outcry is people doing what YJ fans did write letters and emails and stuff to demand the show back without enough support we won’t get TT back we gotta all work together to pressure the network

  19. can someone post the email we send to cartoon network i will make new emails if i have to they need to know

  20. The demise of our childhood is only 3 days away hard to believe.

  21. Hi I’m 9 and I love team titans

  22. Dan the e ail is just go to cartoonvnetwork,com scroll down select contact us choose programming choose teen titans and send the message, alss our childhood is not demised, if anything it will make fans fight harder for our show Just be positive I’m going to write a letter to CN tomorrow I suggest u do too!

  23. I agree completely. This is an insult to an entire generation- an attempt to dilute a perfectly good story for who knows why. This is just wrong. AAAAAAAAAA

  24. That’s my point!we gotta snow themhowwrongthisiswegottaget enough support and go on fan rampage like young justice fans did. We gotta pressure CN fortune real TT back!

  25. But what you must understand is that now that they did this they will never go to teen titans again they will think no one cares about the show but we do this is the end of an era.

  26. Again Dan, Im choosing to keep hoping and trying. You’re wrong many people still do care otherwise why would so many people all over facebook and youtube be saying theyre pissed about TTG and want the old Titans back? WHen this crap starts tonight Im hoping there will be a fan outcry like YJ had and people will make enough noise for our show. Also if fans have an outcry they cant ignore that for long. If youre just gonna be negative well your choice. Remember whats meant to be will be no matter how impossible it seems. Same applies if TT is meant to continue which i believe so it will happen

  27. no i think you misinterpreted my comment about the fans. The fans do care i care of course but when we give it bad reviews CN will think teen titans is dead and will end it right there.

  28. all i know is that many of us can expect this forum to be blowing up after the first episode. i welcome everyones opinion please post once the episodes are over although
