Recap: Teen Titans S 4 E 5 Employee Of The Month
"It's Meat-tastic!"While the rest of the team tries to deal with an UFO that steals cows, Beast Boy finally cracks down and looks for a job to buy himself a moped, but the only place he can find work is a restaurant that serves nothing but meat (which disgusts him since he's a vegetarian.) Contains both the most absurd villain of the entire series, and possibly its most controversial moment as well as Cyborg ends up eating him.
- Action Prologue: The scene of the Titans fighting off aliens just before the opening counts as this.
- Affably Evil: The Bobs.
- Alien Invasion
- Berserk Button:Bobs: Say goodbye, Tammy.Beast Boy: Dude, that's a GIRL'S name! (smashes the Bobs)
- Best Known For Cyborg's Cow Pun
- Bizarro Episode
- Broke Episode
- Does This Remind You of Anything?:
- Beast Boy is seen drooling over a magazine that says 'hot rides' and saying that he's in love, it takes several seconds for Starfire to point out the object of his affection is "merely a land vehicle."
- When he makes the Bobs, the Source grunts and pushes blobs into pipes. Now what could that possibly resemble?...
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Professor Utonium as Bob and Yakko as The Source!
- I'm a Humanitarian: Played with: Cyborg eats the alien, sentient tofu—by accident.
- Large Ham: The Source. Made extra-funny because of his ultra-high voice.
- New Job Episode
- Running Gag: Beast Boy getting blown up every time he tries to get a new job, and Bob can't ever remember Beast Boy's name.
- Scary Shiny Glasses: Again, the Bobs.
- Shout-Out: To Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
- Likewise the Vespa Beast Boy rides is designed like Haruko's.
- Space Whale Aesop: Apparently, eating meat will somehow cause space tofu to destroy the world. May be a borderline Broken Aesop; it is the space tofu disguised as meat they're eating, after all.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: Beast Boy finally gets his moped— for about five minutes.
- What Could Have Been: The episode was born from two separate ideas; an alien invasion from Space Tofu and an episode where one of the Titans got a job. Among the concept art was Raven wearing a Hot-Dog-On-A-Stick uniform◊.
