Teenage Super Heroes Return to Cartoon Network as The All-New "Teen
Titans Go!" Joins DC Nation in 2013

DC Nation, Cartoon Network's home for action-packed animated series
and original shorts based on characters from DC Comics (Saturdays

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.

Well this helps explain why we kept seeing the original cast in the DC
shorts this past year. They probably had something like this in mind
from the beginning but had to get everyone signed up first.


So they are going to make the Teen Titans be more like regular teens
this time around? Hmmm.

I've really enjoyed hearing the original voices for the shorts.

I *hated* the comedic aspect of the original series.  It made it too 
childish for my tastes.  It's OK for a short between commercials but if 
they go full length again, I'd prefer drama.
