It’s an energetic exploration of youthful versions of Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, Cyborg, and others through a mix of comedy and exciting superhero action.
This article will explain everything you need to know about this show, including its cast and characters.
About “Teen Titans Go!”
Following the adventures of the young Titans – a rambunctious, energetic, and often funny group of young superheroes intent on saving the world, all while they navigate their regular teenage lives — is a popular Cartoon Network show.
The superhero team lives together in Jump City and the series features (or references) numerous DC Universe characters, including Justice League members, such as Batman. There have also been some cameo crossovers with the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” as several of the voice cast are involved with both shows.
This TV series was developed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic for the network because of the popularity of DC Nation’s “New Teen Titans” shorts. It’s produced by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, and Sam Register is the show’s executive producer.
“Teen Titans Go!” is considered a standalone spin-off with little continuity — although there are a few references to keep the fans happy — to the original “Teen Titans” series that aired from 2003 to 2006.
In addition to the animated series, there have also been movies featuring the “Teen Titans Go!” characters. “Teen Titans Go! To the Movies” came out in 2018. It was followed up by the direct-to-video film “Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans.”
A spin-off series based on the “Night Begins to Shine” episodes was also announced in early 2021.
When Was “Teen Titans Go!” Released?
There have been seven seasons and 336 episodes of “Teen Titans Go!” as of October 2021.
The first season premiered on April 23, 2013. Each of the first six seasons featured at least 52 episodes (season three had 53 episodes). Season seven was announced in December 2020 and the first episode aired on Jan. 8, 2021. There are 52 seasons slated to run into early 2022.
Who Are the Main Characters of DC’s “Teen Titans Go!”?
Here are the main characters of DC’s “Teen Titans Go!” and the voice actors who portray them.
A rampant perfectionist, Robin, voiced by Scott Menville, is the sometimes controlling leader of the Teen Titans. This former protégé of Batman was born into a family of circus performers and was recruited by Bruce Wayne after his parents were killed in an acrobat accident. He went off on his own after being mistreated by Batman and decided to form his own team, of which he is the leader. He recruited four potential superheroes, who drive him crazy when they don’t listen, but they ultimately work well together.
Voiced by Greg Cipes, Beast Boy has the ability to transform into animals. He’s a bit of a lazy teen who cares more about having a snack or finding his next meal, even when the fate of the world is in the Teen Titans’ hands. This sometimes drives Robin insane, even though his power — which he acquired after being given the antidote to the deadly “Green Fever” — often comes in handy as they battle villains.
This character, voiced by Khary Payton, is another primary member of the Teen Titans. With cybernetic abilities, he comes with all kinds of high-tech upgrades and weapons. Before joining the team, he was a star football player who went down the wrong path after becoming involved with street gangs.
Voiced by Tara Strong, Raven is a key member of the Teen Titans. Her demonic powers are inherited from her father, Trigon. Although her father is a villain, she decided she was tired of listening to him and wanted to try fighting for the good guys. She’s often sarcastic, sullen, deadpan, and when not fighting crime, a bit reserved.
This intergalactic princess from the planet of Tamaran is voiced by Hynden Walch. Beneath her optimistic, cheerful, and sweet demeanor, she’s a powerful superhero who’s adapting to life on Earth when she joins the Teen Titans. Her powers were acquired when Psion scientists experimented on her.
