    If they do redo Teen Titans, I really hope they go into Best Boy's backstory. He had none in the animated series, and as an adult, knowing his backstory, I wish they'd added it.

    well, appreciate that everyone who likes teen titans go's words are the same. It's hilarious. It's just hilarious. That's what they all say, and maybe if I look at a different perspective, I actually can agree. The thing is, the people who get fixated and stuck on their chairs watching TTG will always laugh but will never realize the true meaning of why the original is a serious super hero show in the first place. They won't have the look of those who feel inspired by the original show, or well, the thing that made super heroes an interesting thing in the first place. You'll feel empty if all you do is think of the show as a "funny" show, because that's the only thing i think any ttg fan has described the show as, as far as I see anyways. I hope Teen Titans returns soon, or perhaps, a new superhero series that would be intended to give people the same look as they look up to heroes who show them what it actually is about.

    I HATE Teen titans go for ONE reason. I could shrug it off as just a stupid show for Toddlers, but do you know what the creator said? Just, do you know? He said: "It's our job to make it stupid for kids!" That may not be it word for word, but still. You cannot say something that pretty much calls me and all of my friends stupid or unintelligent and expect us to like your show.

    Honestly, I hate Teen Titans Go and I’m not a fan of the original. To be honest, one of the things it is missing is character development. Every show needs that. In addition, they don’t have common sense... |:( Here is a list:
    Robin: Come on, he is in love with Starfire, yet is idiotic
    Raven: Tries to improve but fails. Also, no development with her relationship with her father.
    BeastBoy: everything
    Cyborg: Look at Beast Boy
    Starfire: So oblivious of everything.
    And no actual plot. Not even 2 parter.

    "If you don't like it, why are you watching it?" I don't know Critic, why do people watch bad movies and then complain about them? And unlike movies that will eventually stop playing in theaters causing the hate to die down usually, TTG came back week after week with a new episode. And on top of that TTG dominats Cartoon Network, the amount of time it gets on the 12 hour block is ridicules. I laughed when I heard they were doing a TTG marathon, cause that's basically what CN is now.

    Honestly I didn't even like the original Teen Titans show. Mostly because it was doing what a lot of cartoons were doing at that time, it was trying to emulate anime. But not real anime, the stereotype of anime created by people who've never actually watched any.

    I’m a die-hard fan of the original Teen Titans, and for a while I hated on the new show like a lot of old fans.
    But I watched a few episodes, and I came to the conclusion that it just wasn’t made for me, and that’s ok. Every once in a while, I come across a clip people share that’s actually pretty funny, so I can get why people like it.
    It’s just not for me, and while it bugs me that it’s on almost ALL THE TIME right now when I turn on Cartoon Network and all I want to do is see an episode of Adventure Time or something, I can see why they play it all the time. It’s their big money maker for the network and kids really enjoy it, and I can’t really fault it for that.

  • Journeys Breeze

    I dislike "Teen Titans Go" not for the comedy and not for the fact that they used the Teen Titans group in and of itself. But for the fact that they used this version of Teen Titan characters. The ones from the beloved animated series with characters that I grew up laughing alongside, the ones I grew up crying for and with.
    If they used a completely different version of the Teen Titan team. Changed up a bit of the character in the group, their designs even their dynamic and made it obvious that this was a different team, a different version. I would have been okay with it. No issues. Still not my kind of show but I wouldn't dislike it to the extent that I do.
    An example of this is the new tv series Titans. Yes, their the same cast of characters for the most part but its a new and different version of them, a different team. Like an alternate reality.
    I don't get upset over the difference between 'Titans' Starfire and 'Teen Titans' Starfire because I know their two completely different versions of her set out to accomplish different things. And while the "Go's" version is made to accomplish something else it's still supposed to be "Teen Titans" Starfire.
    "Teen Titans Go" comes on as a sad parody of who these characters are and dwindling them down to archetypes and ignoring everything about them that made them great, their uniqueness and intricacies. As mentioned in the video their personalities are all the same in "Go". and instead of doing what 'Titans" did and building new characters from the ground up to fit the story. They took old characters and demolished them leaving nothing but the stuff on the surface.

    Note: Sorry If I don't make a lot of sense and come off as a bit rambly. It's hard for me to put my thoughts and emotions down in words. And I understand if you're a bit confused. I did the best I could to explain why I personally dislike "Teen Titans Go" so much. but I understand that it's exactly that, personal. And those who didn't grow up with a fondness for "Teen Titans" like I did, won't have the same reaction as me.
    I don't think it's an awful tv series, I'm not outraged by it, I don't want to sign any petitions to shut it down. I understand why some people like it. I really wanted to like it. But for me, all I feel is a bit of disappointed and something akin to betrayal whenever I watch it. Whenever I watch the characters I love be nothing but hollow husks of themselves making it a bit hard to enjoy the vibrant colours and simple fun.

  • LeaugeOfExtrordinaryGeeks

    I don't like Teen Titans Go, not because it's so different when compared to the original show, not because I don't usually find its humor funny, but because for a while cartoon network would constantly play re-runs all thru-ought the day. With other shows playing either in the morning or near the end of the day. I don't like this show because it drove me away from cartoon network. Every time I thought about watch CN, I would always remind myself, "What's the point, they're only playing Teen Titans Go, that's all they ever broadcast now days." I would check the tv guide and it would just be Teen Titans Go for hours on end. It's fine to have dumb shows every once in a while, but some people still want to watch other stuff too.

  • 7ambris

    I'm generally of the mind that if the original Teen Titans had gotten a satisfying ending, then the hate for Go would be dramatically reduced. Like sure, there would still be malcontents and people endlessly comparing them--but most of the rage against it comes from the simple fact that the original series just ended so awkwardly, and then dismissed.

    My main gripe with GO is that it took characters I respected and idolized, who I considered good people, and made them bad people. It made them bullies who gathered together out of circumstance rather than friendship as there are so many instances where the members of the team in GO turn on each other for stupid reasons. I don't hate most of the comedy and jokes or all of the situations of Go, in fact I would like GO if it didn't make me hate the characters that I loved.

    The reason why they see it is because either their kids/younger siblings watch it or it was what came on before or after what they were planning on watching. That's why so many people I knew had watched Hamtaro, because it was on Toonami and it came on before or after the show they wanted to watch.

    You got it right in the bullseye. Teen Titans was cut off too early for no good reason. And we got GO instead of a new Teen Titans. GO would work better if they made up new characters or just used other DC characters. There's a bunch of comical characters to choose from. Why Teen Titans?

    My only real issue is that the fanbase of the original TT(me included) are 10 years older now. The world has changed. Children have changed. Humor and education have changed. I personally prefer the original because it had depth. But hey, TTG still got kids interested in characters I enjoy. Even if they are crap versions. They still know who Starfire and Raven are when I say those names.

  • John Aquarius

    I read and collected the new teen titans Comics. And I do not hate any of the versions. Teen titans was originally grouped together for the sidekicks to get some distance from there mentors and actually enjoy there time being teens. In many of the comics you would actually see them doing this. So it's not to far from the comics. In reality you don't have a Nancy drew or hardy boys type of Kids walking around trying to solve mystery and fight crime. Kids in fact just want to have fun and I think that's what titans go represent kids with amazing abilities doing what they would most likely do ..which is acting silly being weird eat like crazy and being funny. It's the part thar I get. And it's the part that I think many of the younger younger audiences gets as well. So while we always have young justice and the first version of the teen titans I can definitely appreciate the goofy comedy of the teen titans go. This is coming from an old school comic fan.

    I agree with you on how fans of the old show that are watching the new show are making it bigger,I realize this when I saw the episode where the new characters saw how they used to be,It got me so mad that the creators know what they are doing to the show is insulating and they don't care,this made me figure out the more fans complain,the more it makes it more infamous, from that point on I vowed never to watch another Teen Titans Go episode ever again,and when the movie was announce I did everything to avoid the promos so I wouldn't have to see that garbage, so fellow fans, I ask you this,if you truly want to show your love of teen titans then stop watching anything related to TTG, it make it more well known, you hate hoping it will stop the show is like trying to put out a fire with wood,so please,spread the word,stop paying attention to the disgusting Abomination that is Teen Titans Go. #TeentitansGoaway

    Im gonna be honest... i actually really like TTG. Of course the originals better, but that's like comparing the Mona Lisa to modern art. One's clearly better, but there both great. Im a big fan of the random adventures the new show has. Maybe they become villains for a day. Or maybe they join a vegetable cult. Or maybe they eat a spicy pepper and need to drink milk from "the immortal udders" to stop the burning.

    I also like how they teach lessons nobody else teaches, literally because nobody teaches them. For example, in one episode they teach you how to buy/manage a rental property.

    The biggest problem with TTG was the marketing. If Cartoon Network had marketed it as a supplement to the first TT, instead of a replacement, I think more fans would have been more forgiving.
    I actually think TTG works really well as a non-canon omake, like in a lot of old-school anime

    The only things I don't like about teen titans go are A) the show's instant drop into mindless comedy, and B) certain jokes i noticed in each episode. Other than that, it's fine. The voice acting is really great (except for robin. His voice is so shrill!), the animation is pretty good, and the fight scenes are still really awesome!
