‘TEEN TITANS GO!’ INVOKES SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK TO EXPLAIN HUMAN METAPHORS TO STARFIRE
By Chris Sims
Starfire has a problem. Thanks to her alien upbringing and her unfamiliarity with the intricacies of Earth languages, she has a hard time communicating with her friends, who are always using the metaphors. She tends to be a little more literal, and that’s making her feel a little “uncool” around her “teen” “pals.”
Fortunately, this week’s episode of Teen Titans GO!, ”Knowledge,” finds Raven willing to help, with the show going into full-on Schoolhouse Rock mode for a song about how to spice up her conversations, and it is amazing.

‘TEEN TITANS GO!’ RETURNS WITH LIVE-ACTION MARIONETTES AND DEALS WITH THE SOCK-DEVIL IN ‘PUPPETS WHAAAAT?’
Inspired by the characters created and/or popularized by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, Teen Titans Go! is one of the best ever DC Comics series to come out of Warner Bros. Animation, which is saying something considering the prestigious history of that association. The series has been characterized by a virtually flawless balance of character-based superhero situation comedy and hilarious absurdism, with multiple episodes dedicated to dance parties, romantic rivalries, food-based melodrama, characters actually dying (only to be resurrected inexplicably in the next), and now, selling their souls to the Devil.

There are a lot of things to love about Teen Titans Go, but the single best thing about it is how much there is to see in each episode. Well, no, sorry, that’s a lie: The best thing about it is that there are multiple episodes that end with the characters growing old and/or dying, but right after that, it’s definitely the show’s signature look. Art director Dan Hipp has been a ComicsAlliance favorite for as long as ComicsAlliance has existed, and now, he’s hard at work filling up the backgrounds of Teen Titans Go with some truly bizarre pieces of the DC Universe.
This week, we got what might be the single best gag of ‘em all, so we’re counting down our favorites from the series so far!

Ahead of its presentation to advertisers and promotional partners — known in television as “upfronts” —Cartoon Network confirmed what new and returning series will be on the slate for the 2013 and 2014 seasons. While such ComicsAlliance favorites as Adventure Time and Regular Show will return with new seasons and specials, it seems we’ll not see new installments of Green Lantern: The Animated Series orYoung Justice. But in happier superhero news, Cartoon Network announced the long awaited return of thePowerpuff Girls in a new CG-animated special, and the much anticipated Beware the Batman and Teen Titans Go! will finally make their premieres later this year.
