New Animated Series – Teen Titans Go! Starts April 23 on Cartoon Network
Fan-favorite DC Comics The Teen Titans are returning to television! Cartoon Network announced an official premiere date for the new series, Teen Titans Go! Tuesday, April 23, at 7:30pm (ET/PT) then will join the DC Nation Block, Saturday mornings at 10:30am (ET/PT) beginning April 27, 2013. Teen Titans Go! will follow the new adventures of teen superheroes Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, and Cyborg. Teen Titans Go! is a revival of the 2003-2006 Teen Titans series, with the original Titans cast. A version of the Titans J-Pop theme song will be remixed by Mix Master Mike (Beastie Boys) that should be cool! Read bits from press-release below.
The character-driven comedy series focuses on the funny that happens in between saving the world and living together as teenagers without adult supervision. The comedic mayhem of the animated series is punctuated by pranks and the occasional need to fight crime, but it will also deal with the everyday issues of adolescence. With epic staring contests to decide who does the laundry, a series of quests and battles to construct the perfect sandwich or fighting crime in Jump City, one thing is for sure, these Titans will always be ready for an adventure inside the house and out.
The principal voice cast from the original Teen Titans series, based on DC Comics characters, will reprise their roles in Teen Titans Go!, with Scott Menville as the voice of Robin, the slightly power-mad perfectionist and leader of the Teen Titans. Hynden Walch voices Starfire, an alien struggling to fit in; Tara Strong voices Raven, the sardonic, deadpan demon girl; Greg Cipes returns as the slightly dim but always lovable loafer, Beast Boy; and Khary Payton provides the voice of Cyborg, a laid-back kid who is half teen, half robot.
