Trivia: Teen Titans Go!

The Comic Book

The Animated Series

  • Actor Allusion: It's revealed that Raven is a fan of Pretty Pretty Pegasus. Raven's voice actress, Tara Strong, also voices the main character in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.
    • Robin is also a big fan of Pretty Pretty Pegasus. One of Scott Menville's first voice acting roles was as the human boy, Danny, in My Little Pony.
      • In "The Date", Robin bribes Cyborg and Beast Boy with Scooby Snacks. Menville once voiced Shaggy.
    • In "Be Mine", Beast Boy sings the song "Fade Away" by himself.
  • Adored by the Network: Once the show was on the verge of premiering, Cartoon Network advertised the show like crazy despite the fact that it was only meant for DC Nation. So much so that the show was even given a primetime slot on Tuesdays along with it's DC Nation spot. Beware the Batman, the other show on DC Nation, could only dream of such publicity.
    • Not to mention the three other encore slots that it started off with, plus the SpongeBob-esque schedule creep that started about three months after the premiere...
    • On October 26, 2013, DC Nation became 100% Teen Titans Go!, due to Beware being pulled from the schedule, before the block disappeared entirely.
  • Defictionalization: One fan posted an official Legendary Sandwich recipe on Tumblr.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: In addition to the returning voices actors reprising their respective roles, there's also some other familiar voices among the cast.
    • Jeff Bennett is Ed.
    • Nika Futterman is Sonia.
    • Famous magician Ricky Jay is the narrator inside Robin's head in "Double Trouble" and "The Date".
    • Kate Micucci is Parry.
    • In addition to reprising their respective roles of Robin, Cyborg, and Raven, Scott Menville is Detective Chimp, and Khary Payton and Tara Strong are Zan and Jayna. In "Staring at the Future", Strong was also once again Batgirl.
  • Name's the Same: Shares its name with the Comic Book Adaptation of the Animesque Teen Titans cartoon, but is otherwise different from said adaptation, barring being more comedy-focused compared to the original show.
  • The Other Darrin: Scott Menville replaces Mike Erwin as Speedy.
    • Scott Menville replaced Rodger Bumpass as Dr. Light for an episode. Bumpass subsequently came back and reprised his role. Menville also replaced the late Glenn Shadix as the Brain.
    • The Venezuelan Spanish dub replace the entire cast, with the sole exception of Cyborg's voice actor, as the rest of the cast retired from voice acting.
    • The Polish dub recast Beast Boy at the dubbing studio's insistence.
    • The Italian dub recast Cyborg and Beast Boy, because the latter's voice actor would be overworked from travelling between Milan and Rome.
  • Recursive Adaptation: A cartoon named after a comic book that was a Comic Book Adaptation of another cartoon, that this show is based on, that was adapted from another comic book. There's also a comic book based on this comedy series with the same title as the one that was based on the '03 series. Nope. Not at all confusing or anything.
  • Recycled Script
    • "Pie Bros" is pretty much like "Employee of the Month" except no alien tofu, Beast Boy wants to buy something, and the plot is mashed up with elements from "Mother Mae-Eye" (including the eponymous villain).
    • The ending of "Legendary Sandwich" bears a lot of resemblance to Princess Bubblegum's story in the first "Five Short Graybles" episode of Adventure Time. Both stories involve the characters going to painstaking lengths to create the perfect sandwich only for it to be chewed up and spat out by someone who didn't appreciate it. It's funny, considering that Princess Bubblegum and Starfire share the same voice actress.
    • "Terra-ized" was the Judas Contract (and therefore the arc of Season 2 of the original series) in a nutshell.
    • "Colors of Raven" uses the "different color Ravens for each piece of her personality" plot from "Nevermore".
  • Talking to Himself
    • Robin and Speedy are not only voiced by same actor, they sound exactly the same.
    • The Wonder Twins have the same voice actors as Raven and Cyborg.
  • Voices in One Room: Interviews at San Diego Comic Con 2013 revealed this is how voice recording is done.
  • What Could Have Been
    • The characters went through several designs before settling on their current ones.
    • In "Laundry Day", when Raven and Robin's suits were dancing, Robin's suit was originally going to be thrusting in the other direction, towards Raven's suit. They flipped the Robin suit's model to make it less suggestive. Though it still is pretty suggestive, considering what Raven's suit is doing.
