* In the first episode, Slade is seen being served tea by a butler. The Butler is named Wintergreen, and he was Slade's regular sidekick in the comics. He was most likely added to the first episode with the intention of developing into the same role in the cartoon, but was then dropped in favor of Slade working alone.
* ActorAllusion:
** In his first appearance, Mad Mod (voiced by Creator/MalcolmMcDowell) claims that "nothing teaches discipline and respect like [[Film/AClockworkOrange a brain-erasing trance.]]" Well, the line from the movie is "brain-erasing drugs," but it ''is'' a kids' show. He even uses TheLudovicoTechnique.
** The quote "You're just jealous 'cause I sound like a rock star" is a nod to Creator/GregCipes' actual career as a reggae-ska rock singer. On top of that, Cipes has lived on a vegan diet since age 8, and actually is a professional surfer, so he fits with Beast Boy's [[TotallyRadical lingo.]]
** The hero of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' ShoutOut in "Episode 257-494" is voiced by Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor, a.k.a. [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars Obi-Wan]] [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars Kenobi]][[note]]Though at the time ''Teen Titans'' was airing, only ''Star Wars: Clone Wars'' was aired as ''Star Wars: The Clone Wars'' came a few years later.[[/note]].
** Kid Flash is voiced by Creator/MichaelRosenbaum, who voiced the [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague adult Flash]].
** Lightning is voiced by Creator/QuintonFlynn, whose StarMakingRole was also [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty as a man]] [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots codenamed]] [[VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance "Lightning"]].

** Before the show materialized as ''Teen Titans'', it was originally proposed as an adaptation of ''Comicbook/YoungJustice'', the successor to the Teen Titans in the comics (which was actually made because the then-recent ''Teen Titans'' comic, or "Titans", was met with terrible reception). Ultimately, it didn't pan out, one of the reasons being that much of the complete roster for Young Justice consists of {{Legacy Character}}s [[note]]the roster has included Robin III, Superboy II, Impulse (Bart Allen II), Wonder Girl II, Lil Lobo, and Batgirl IV[[/note]] and they feared this would likely be too confusing for non-comic readers, especially the kids the show was ostensibly meant for, and having to manage all these legacies would probably also be difficult for the writers. Hence, the ''Teen Titans'' we know today was born. While ''Young Justice'' would eventually get its own [[WesternAnimation/YoungJustice adaptation]] that was well-received, it takes some [[InNameOnly creative liberties]] with the source material. One can only wonder what ''Young Justice'' would've been if the original pitch made it through.



** There was a proposed live-action adaptation that was supposed to air on TNT, but it never made it past the pilot stage.
