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 and brother of Megan, Danny, in My Little Pony.
    • In "The Date", Robin bribes Cyborg and Beast Boy with Scooby Snacks. Menville once voiced Shaggy.
    • A giant humanoid robot piloted by all five Titans appears in the series, each Titan piloting a different body part, reminiscent of another series where Greg Cipes voiced a prominent role.
    • In the Valentine's Day special, Beast Boy sang "Fade Away", a song originally sung by Cipes.
    • "Truth, Justice, and What?" features Cipes voicing "those cool turtles". Plus, there's a scene where Beast Boy impulsively exposes himself to some radioactive slime to mutate himself, undergoes some Body Horror and nearly dies from the result, very similar to what Mikey does in an episode of the 2012 cartoon. Scott Menville voices one of the other turtles, and also has had a recurring role in the new cartoon.
  • 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 its DC Nation spot. Beware the Batman, the other show on DC Nation, could only dream of such publicity.
      • In March 2015, Cartoon Network started a new slogan for the show, dubbing it "Your new favorite show!"
    • 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.
    • It's gotten to the point where half of Cartoon Network's airtime is divided between it and The Amazing World of Gumball. However, most likely due to fan backlash, and to promote whatever games they have on Cartoon Network Anything, the network is trying to lessen the stranglehold this show and Gumball have on the network by incorporating reruns and new episodes of Uncle Grandpa, Clarence, Ninjago: Masters of Spin-Jitsu, and even the neglected series they still have: Adventure Time and Regular Show into their daytime line-up.
    • The show airs on Boomerang.note 
    • As June 2015, the show airs at least 4-5 hours a day. This has forced Sonic Boom and Transformers: Robots in Disguise into premiering in the graveyard slot so it can use the prime time slot for reruns.
    • The show is getting a Blu-ray release, making it one of the handful of Warner Bros. cartoons to get this treatment.
    • The series' already large marketing campaign has become even more extensive, with commercials for the show airing on non-Turner channelsnote  and various video streaming sites. Keep in mind that with the exception of Boomerang, it's rare for Cartoon Network shows to be advertised on other channels owned by Time Warner.
    • In Summer 2015, Cartoon Network had a event where everyday for a week, Monday through Friday, each of its popular shows would premiere a new episode. Teen Titans Go! was the only one to have a marathon air before each new episode. Also, the day after the Teen Titans Go! event had finished, Cartoon Network had another marathon for the 4th of July. For six consecutive days, Teen Titans Go! made up the majority of Cartoon Network's airtime.
    • By August 2015, though, the amount of reruns for Teen Titans Go! was severely dialed back, with Regular Show even recapturing its 7:30 PM timeslot. However, during one weekend in August 2015, an unannounced five hour marathon came on, event when the schedule said different shows were on!
  • Ascended Fanon: Beast Boy and Raven are frequently referred to as "BBRae" in the fandom. Then, in "Rocks and Water" the term gets used in the actual show.
  • Defictionalization: One fan posted an official Legendary Sandwich recipe on Tumblr.
  • Fan Nickname:
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: In addition to the returning voice actors reprising their respective roles, there's also some other familiar voices among the cast.
  • 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. Menville also replaced Rodger Bumpass as Dr. Light in "Colors of Raven", before Bumpass subsequently came back and reprised his role. Finally, Menville replaced the late Glenn Shadix as the Brain.
    • Will Friedle replaces Michael Rosenbaum as Kid Flash.
    • 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 a reprise of "Employee of the Month" with no alien tofu. Beast Boy wants to buy something, he tries to get a job with little success, before finally getting a placement that involves working for the episode's antagonist.
    • "Colors of Raven" is pretty much an extension of "Nevermore", and expands upon the "different colored Literal Split Personality Ravens". Many have pointed out that Green Raven the personification of Bravery is absent, but have noticed Lady Legasus seems to take after her. It even more directly copies the 2003 series' comic spin-off story "Pieces of Me."
    • The infamous "Staring at the Future" takes after "How Long Is Forever?", only has Beast Boy and Cyborg traveling to the future rather than Starfire. Also unlike Starfire, who's absence tore the team apart, in this case, Beast Boy and Cyborg's absence helped the other Titans reach their full potential. Furthermore, their return and presence in the past screwed their friends over and resulted in a apocalyptic future.
    • "Grandma Voice" is essentially the same as the original series episode "Mother Mae-Eye", only with Mother Mae-Eye being replaced by Grandma Cyborg and an absence of mind controlling pies. Mother Mae-Eye herself even appears to further cement this reference.
    • 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.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • Robin and Speedy are not only voiced by same actor, they sound exactly the same. Robin and Brain also share the same voice actor.
    • The Wonder Twins have the same voice actors as Raven and Cyborg. Raven also shared her voice actress with Kitten and Batgirl and Cyborg also shares his voice actor with the Couch Spirit, Universe Tree, the Halloween Spirit, and the Kaldur'ahm Aqualad.
    • As in the original series, Starfire and Blackfire share a voice actress.
    • The Ninja Turtles are voiced by Greg Cipes and Scott Menville. It counts as a Role Reprisal in Cipes' case.
  • Voices in One Room: Interviews at San Diego Comic Con 2013 revealed this is how the 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. Robin' suit was flipped to make it less suggestive. Despite this, it's still pretty suggestive, considering what Raven's suit is doing.
