    "These characters were not designed for this show" - THANK YOU! Finally someone gets it. And how their personalities are all the same, while they were very different originally

    TTG did many, many tastless jokes about the old show's fans, not just one episode. I really despise the creators for it.

    I think the problem with teen titans go is that its a reboot i feel like it just didn’t need to be the titans and then it be fine

  • SomeoneImSure
    SomeoneImSure 4 days ago

    I think the main problem with Teen Titans Go is that the original fans were promised the return of Teen Titans the original series, aka a continuation of that. They even got the original voice actors from that series, trying to capitalize on that fanbase. And then we got mindless childish humor in TTG. It wasn't an insult to the original series; it was an insult to the original series' fanbase. And it continues to insults them. That's why the original fanbase hates it so much.

    My main problem with TTG is that the characters are very annoying and obnoxious.
    Eustace from Courage the Cowardly Dog is greedy and often cruel towards Courage but he clearly cares about his wife and shows kindness sometimes which makes him an interesting character.
    TTG characters seem staight up retarded sometimes.
    Also the animation looks cheap,I've seen fan-made character designs from deviantart better.

    I'm sorry, but I despise Go!...and I don't even watch it. It's just cringy and stupid, all over, the characters just aren't the same, etc. The original show is way, way, way, way better. I'm glad I don't have younger siblings because otherwise, they'd be poisoned by the Go! crap that should never exist. There, opinion said.

    Mr. nostalgia critic I’ve got an idea for you do you an Old versus new episodes revolving around the old Live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles versus Michael bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the Old Mighty morphing Power Rangers vs The new 2017 mighty morphing Power Rangers I’m Asking you to do this as I think it would be fun comparing the two but at the end of the day it’s always your decision whether you choose to or not you this more as an idea/request

    All true and I have not seen one episode of Teen Titans Go! Because I will not give them the satisfaction I could tell from the style the little dialog I hear and generally anything else that the show reveals is a betrayal of the original

    TTGO absolutely sucks, the humor is overused and recycled, and a premise about as awful as the emoji movie. Now if they did TTGO like Justice League Action! I can give it a chance. TTGO only became popular because CN flaunted it like a supreme hoodie, until it’s younger audience was pretty much forced to laugh at it.

  • A Diver
    A Diver 19 days ago

    As unnecessary as TTG is, I still kind of enjoyed it. Sometimes all you need is a dumb show to clear your head. I only saw one episode of TT and wish that they would rerun the show so I can watch it. I understand where the hate for TTG comes from but I personally thought that it wasn't that bad.

    I mean the hate wouldn’t be as strong if the past couple of years since it’s release it wasn’t like 70% of what CN puts on.
    I was excited to see the show and just watched and it just sucked. It tried to be spongebob and it did. And by that I mean the shitty seasons of sponge bob where he and Patrick where at there stupidest and most dickish. And the comedy just doesn’t always work. I’m not a fan of the clear straight man getting his ass handed to him by the stupidest comedy. It only works on some levels. And many punch lines felt forced and predictable. Of course at points it can be cleaver but it just comes off as pretentious a lot.

  • Rileigh Dabbs

    I hate Teen Titans Go because people treat it better than they do the DCEU.
    And because I KNOW Michael Jelenic could've done better; He was behind Batman: The Brave and The Bold, which gave us "Mayhem Of The Music Meister!" and, to a lesser extent, "Emperor Joker!"
    (P.S. In defense of Titans: At least THEY know Jason Todd came AFTER Dick Grayson.)

    What I like about Teen Titans Go is that you can tell that the people who made it did their homework on the DC universe. Also, the old show is a lot worse than I remember even though it’s still amazing. I remembered it as flawless and boy was I wrong.

    • Rileigh Dabbs

      Really? They "did their homework"? Then explain to me why Aquaman agreed to marry Starfire despite already having a wife. Explain to me why Jason Todd's skeleton is shown while Dick Grayson is still Robin.

  • shindean
    shindean Month ago

    Old Teen Titans show ended because the last season was horrible, separating the cast to move on to individual adventures killed the team chemistry. It's also a sign of the writers running out of ideas.
    Teen Titans Go! Is always fresh, keeps the cast together, and don't have to worry about making prolonged story lines or limitations in world building i.e. having Batman as a guest star.
    Be grateful for the old one, but just like the comics, getting cancelled seems to be par the course for a team of side kicks, just like Young Justice.

  • Warsun

    I will make it clear. The hatred of this show is COMPLETELY valid. Because Cartoon Network promised the return of Teen Titans. NOT This. They Lied to their customer base an the customers Turned off Cartoon network. So Cartoon Network Spammed the series day an night to force ratings for this show.

  • Po Polska

  • Icalasari

    Yeah, it boils down to how soon it was (think of how much more it stings when they out right mock fans of the old Teen Titans) and the characters being diluted (e.g. Beast Boy is a vegetarian as he can become and understand any animal. In Go? He'll gladly eat meat. They fucked up his character for jokes and didn't even have a payoff that worked due to the characters all being so similar)

  • otakon17

    1:40 NOT Metropolis. Pretty sure that's West City since later on AquaLad, Mos and Minos, Bumblebee and Speedy become the secondary "East Coast Titans" in EAST City. Least if I remember correctly.

  • gogogabe9000
    gogogabe9000 Month ago

    I think a lot of the reason TTG is always talked about is because Cartoon Network plays this show CONSTANTLY. An episode about waffles may be dumb but it’s catchy and kids seem to enjoy it. But when I want to watch other shows I have to watch at least two or three TTG reruns before they play something different. It’s to the point where I am flipping through the channels, see this show on and completely skip over it and watch another channel. It takes up most of CN’s prime time. The jokes are incredibly slapstick, and it may be funny at least once or twice but watching the same thing over and over makes me want to pull my hair out.

  • Jarred Forrider
    Jarred Forrider Month ago

    Here is why I'm mad:
    Since the original ended, the Teen Titans had a COMPLETELY different roster!!! Heck, Cyborg is in the Justice League now!! If they wanted to make a show like this, fine, I get it from a marketing perspective, they just wanna do what's popular..... but they had NO reason to RUIN the characters from the original!!! Especially since this new show is, as he stated, a completely new genre!

  • Astrithor
    Astrithor Month ago

    You definitely hit the nail on the head with the tipping point.
    As for, "Why all the hatred?", I think it has to do with how close we all felt to the original characters. We felt so much for them, we thought of them almost as family, and to murder their personalities in favor of often terrible humor was...unforgivable.

  • Wiezymon

    Honestly, Cartoon Network has gotten so bad with its decision-making, airing, and cartoon-support that I just basically stopped watching daytime mainstream Cartoon Network all together and watch classic [adult swim], Toonami, but mostly, I watch THE NEWS most of the time. That's right: *THE NEWS* is my new Cartoon Network until or unless further notice.
    Anyways, THANK YOU once again, Nostalgia Critic!

Everybody else says Starfire and Raven were hot, sometimes Robin, and strangely Beast Boy (WHY)... but I feel I'm in the minority of people who found Cyborg hot. Of course, now I have a crush on Cyborg in the Justice League. If it wasn't just me who had a crush on Cyborg, please respond. 3:

      A few months ago (or a few years, I can't remember) I asked to one of my friend's little sister which cartoon was better (TT or TTG). The answer was TTG, because she said that TT looks more like a comic rather than a cartoon. Then a few months ago I asked her again which was better and the answer was TT because she actually watched the show. So please CN bring back TT and erase TTG from existence.
