Shout Out: Teen Titans Go!

  • Pretty Pretty Pegasus is a Show Within a Show Affectionate Parody of My Little Pony.
  • One of the pillows on the Titans' couch is shaped and colored like Finn's head.
  • Beast Boy in pig form may be an unintentional reference to Angry Birds.
  • The supermarket chase is one to The Benny Hill Show
  • The picture Beast Boy draws for Cyborg's birthday in "Pie Bros" depicts them flying in space with a colorful ribbon trail behind them, referencing Nyan Cat.
  • In "Driver's Ed", Beast Boy has a picture of Nite Owl on his wall, as well as a picture of Plastic Man.
  • In Beast Boy's flashback at the start of "Dog Hand", the warthog that kicks him away is orange with black hair, like Puumba from The Lion King.

    • Robin has a Superman figurine hanging from his ceiling light.

    • Starfire's date with Speedy is a reference to their relationship in the New 52.
    • Starfire's dress is based on Jane Jetson's.
    • The voice in Robin's head sounds like either the announcer of the old Men's Warehouse or the Shang Company commercials.
  • In Robin's flashback scene in "Dude Relax", the bear wearing a collar is a reference to Yogi Bear.
    • The circus flashback itself is a reference to Dick Grayson, the original Robin in the comics. This is in line with a previous reference to the circus in the original Teen Titans series when Raven entered Robin's mind, suggesting that the Robin in the show is the DC Animated version of Grayson. It should be noted that the episode baits viewers who know this into predicting that Robin stopped relaxing after his parents were killed just like in the comics, only to reveal that it's because the animals kept stealing his stuff.
  • In "Laundry Day", one of Cyborg's bodies is shaped like one of the Voltron lions in leg mode.
    • Another one is DCAU's Brainiac ("too brainy").
    • When Beast Boy uses a vacuum to suck up Cyborg's soul, the music resembles the Ghostbusters theme.
    • Starfire's dress-making skills and the end result is a lot like what the character Giselle does for a hobby in Enchanted.

  • "La Larva de Amor" has several during the milk mustache contest, such as Robin becoming Mario, Raven becoming Gandalf and Beast Boy becoming Chewbacca, complete with Bowcaster. Also, Cyborg resembles B.A. Baracus.
  • Of the many references to other DC characters in the series, perhaps the most potentially impactful on the story was Beast Boy finding a Green Lantern ring in the couch at the start of "La Larva de Amor". Of course, as he was looking for something else, he tossed it aside.
  • Apparently the skeleton reaching for water under Starfire's bed was Deadman (Boston Brand).
  • In "Hey Pizza!" Starfire buys an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini.
    • The money used in the episode have Lex Luthor on the bills, a shout out to the fact that for a while, Luthor was President of the United States.
  • In "Gorilla", Beast Boy is under the impression that gorillas and crocodiles are natural enemies. Sounds like he's been playing a certain series of games too much.
    • In addition, some of his gorilla sounds when he's refusing to speak are directly ripped from Mario Kart 64's DK voice.
  • In "Girls Night Out", Beast Boy combs his hair down, but has a cowlick similar to Alfalfa from The Little Rascals.
  • In "You're Fired", Zan hides as water in a fishbowl while Beast Boy is a goldfish, referencing The Fairly OddParents.

      • He mentions that the actor who played Webster "was like 40 in real life". Cyborg may have confused him with Gary Coleman, who starred in Diff'rent Strokes.
    • When Cyborg is hooked up to the Titans Tower mainframe, he loses his humanity and starts acting more like HAL 9000. He even starts speaking in a Creepy Monotone, only shows his cybernetic eye, and utters the famous line "I'm sorry, but I cannot do that".
      • He also starts filling the Tower with a green gas that looks like the neurotoxin from Portal.
    • A reference to The Brave Little Toaster is made in the end, where Robin's Lampy, Starfire's Toaster, and Raven's Kirby.
      • No wonder that scene was so disturbing.
  • In what may or may not be an accident, Raven's shoes contain one skull each in the exact same design and color scheme of a popular hentai artist's logo who has done two Raven flashes and several more Teen Titans flashes of the other characters. For obvious reasons, links will not be provided.
  • "Starliar":
  • "Meatball Party":

    • The secret data room has a series of different doors opening ŕ la Get Smart and Mystery Science Theater 3000.
      • One of these doors is a vault door, labeled "101." The number and way the door opens are clear references to Fallout 3.
    • A Darkseid doll can be found leaning against the couch.
  • In "Artful Dodgers", Starfire puts a dodgeball in her mouth like a jawbreaker.
    • During the victory dance, Cyborg does that dance from A Charlie Brown Christmas.
  • "Burger vs. Burrito":
  • The display on Cyborg's monitor in "Matched" is in the same style as the stage select in Mega Man 2.
    • And just as he activates the machine, there's a pixel version of the heart shot from The Powerpuff Girls.
  • In "Colors of Raven", you can spot a boy wearing a Hero of Time hoodie.
  • Cyborg's new Humongous Mecha in "The Left Leg" bears quite the resemblance to Sym-Bionic Titan.
    • When the Titans ride the pneumatic tubes to board said mecha, the music played is the classic touchtone 3-3-2-3-9-3 of the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers theme.
  • In "Starfire the Terrible", Robin's hair shifts from his old original style, to Bart Simpson, Goku, and Sonic's styles.

  • In "Nose Mouth", after Starfire talks about his "Sleep Fighting", the words "Sleep Fighter II" appear in a certain font.
  • In "Legs", when Raven changes her outfit, it's a gold one. Which could be a subtle shout out to her bodyless good soul self. Or the nicknamed "Gold Raven".
    • Heck, Lady Legasus is an Expy of Chun-Li. Especially her attack "Lightning Leg" is similar to Chun-Li's "Lightning Kick."
    • When Cyborg stares at the gem on Raven's cloak, the "Song of Nephilim" plays.
    • Raven's flying kick is similar to Liu Kang's.
  • In "Opposites", Cyborg says "strategery".

  • "Mr. Butt" spoofs Cape Fear in the scenes of Starfire working out in prison, complete with similar background music.
  • In several episodes, the first being "Pie Bros", Cyborg turns into a morph ball.
    • He also uses a weapon select screen reminiscent of Super Metroid in "Dreams".

  • In "Caramel Apples", there are quite a few:

    • Mario and Luigi's skeletons can be seen a little later on in the episode.
    • Cyborg and Beast Boy's character designs from the original show make an appearance.
    • A coincidence due to them supposed to be thin expies of herself, Starfire and Trigon, but Raven's Butterbean and Sparkleface toys are in Rarity and Scootaloo's exact color scheme.
  • Raven's musical number in "Knowledge" is done in the style of Schoolhouse Rock.
  • Two of the sandwich masters that appear in "Sandwich Thief" resemble Pai Mei and Afro, respectively.
  • "Friendship" has a ton of references to My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (among other things), due to it being centered around an episode of its own Shout-Out, Pretty Pretty Pegasus:
  • In "Serious Business", when the Titans are debating Robin's rules concerning the bathroom, backdrops reminiscent of The Flintstones and The Jetsons pop up.
    • Also, when Robin flushes himself down the toilet and emerges into a 2D video game world, stock sounds from Super Mario Bros. can be heard, especially the "traveling through pipe" sound.
  • In the Titans' flashback in "Halloween" they're dressed as the Thunder Cats with Raven as Mumm-ra.
    • Their battle against the Spirit of Halloween is a clear homage to Ghostbusters, with the jack-o'-lanterns acting as proton packs and the uncarved pumpkin being a ghost trap.

  • In "The Mask" among Robin's boxes of mask one of the boxes is labeled Mask of the Phantasm.

  • At about 0:33 in this clip of the episode "Tamaranian Vacation," it looks like the Rock Monster has fed on a certain Hutt crime lord...

  • "Video Game References" is one huge Lampshade Hanging with the title itself.
