Woo hoo! An alternative to dour and violent superheroes is returning to TV.
Teen Titans Go! will be airing on Cartoon Network in 2013 as part of the DC Nation. Picking up from the fan-favorite cartoon series that ran from 2003-2006, the series will be made up of half-hour episodes promising to show “the humorous side of being a teenage hero.”
Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, and Cyborg will participate in “character-driven comedy”. Examples from the press release include “teenage pranks” and “wrecking the Batmobile on an unauthorized joy ride”. The characters will be voiced by the original cast: Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Scott Menville as Robin, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Tara Strong as Raven, and Hynden Walch as Starfire. I’ll be watching!
