Ok, seriously, we don't actually know anything about it, so we don't know if it's going to be in the DC Animated Universe or not.

All I know is that Arrowette is going to be in it, and, apparently, Aqualad, Nightwing, Connor Kent, Miss Martian and Impulse are as well.

From the page itself:

I liked the look a lot. Itís not quite Timm-style, but itís not All Murikamiíd out like Teen Titans.

The kids were the focus of the poster, in the center, but The JL was behind them.

Which means it could be it's own continuity altogether (though I wish upon wish upon wish that it's going to be the DCAU), and also apparently says that the Justice League itself will make appearances as well...

I usually can't stand the attempt to cram in a Spinoff Babies version of something. That's not to say it always turns out bad, but the implication that they thought it was a good idea to start with is what bothers me. I'll try to reserve judgement for now.
Except it's not Spinoff Babies. It looks like a mix between Young Justice, Teen Titans, and The Outsiders, actually.

Well, they kidified Batman: The Animated Series with Batman Beyond, and that was pretty awesome.

Younger generation stuff can work well if done by the right people with the right ideas. If it's actually a DCAU series, then I have faith that it will be pretty cool. Hell, they even did some interesting stuff with Static Shock after absorbing him into the DCAU continuity.

Maybe Spinoff Babies wasn't exactly the trope I was looking for, but it's in the ballpark. Granted, the ones where it's literally supposed to be the same characters, but younger, whether that makes any sense or not, are much more annoying. However, I still find myself wary whenever they do a younger-age equivalent.

When I was younger, I always resented the implication that for younger people to accept a show, the characters themselves had to be teenage or younger. I still do, of course, but now I'm in the Periphery Demographic.

I do hope they mostly stick to, you know, superhero stuff. That's one thing that I think made Teen Titans better, that their age was purely incidental. Their age wasn't important, it was just part of the title. Batman Beyond did okay, all things considered, but it felt the need to ask the question: What if Batman had a bunch of highschool crap to deal with? Answer: I don't care. Actually, the strangest thing I found about Batman Beyond was that Gotham City had apparently gone from a retro, art deco style, to the world of the Jetsons in only 50 years. But that's completely off-topic.

All that being said, I do like the idea of their being a new DCAU series.

Why don't they just call it "Young Justice" though, like it was in the comics? Well, maybe they want it to rack in some Justice League fans.

This is the best news I've had all day, and probably tomorrow, too. :D

Edit: By the by, although obviously based on the limited info I can't be sure, this looks to be no more a Spinoff Babies product than the regular Young Justice series was. YJ was not Spinoff Babies— all the characters had been established in the DCU long before they were brought together in one comic, which goes against the typical formula of kid spinoffs. If this series is anything like the comic, it'll be fun and adventurous, while making time for drama. And, of course, boatloads of AWESOME. I really hope it's like the comics!

Thanks for the all fish!

In addition, the personalities of Impulse, Superboy and Robin was very much different from Flash, Superman and Batman. So Young Justice was very different from the JLA.

Yeah, none of that was related to my hesitance about this sort of thing...but whatever. Nevermind.

Yes, I like Young Justice. I'm probably going to like this show.

If Peter David is involved in any way, shape, or form in this, I'm building a time machine and getting it now.
Apparently, Aqualad's design. Looks interesting.

Is there a point to doing another DCAU cartoon when we know Batman and all his related character's can't appear in it? Even in guest roles.

There are other interesting characters besides Batman.

And I believe Nightwing's in it.

It's not the DCAU. The DCAU ended with the last episode of Justice League Unlimited. Just 'cause a show or movie is animated and stars DC characters, that doesn't mean it's part of the DCAU.
mudshark: I don't expect Nate to make sense, really.
We'll, we don't know it's not the DCAU, either. Saying it's not is just as much an assumption as saying it is, and from what I hear there's at least a chance it might be.

Good Egg
As a very enthusiastic Teen Titans fan (with a touch of JL/U on the side) I must say that I'm rather excited about this. Sure, it might not be as good as what came before, but we can only hope. grin

...Though I must admit the purported Aqualad design is rather off-putting. Yes, it's different, but not in a good way. But we'll just have to wait and see, won't we?

Time keeps dragging on.
The Fastest Man Alive
Officially announced. Umm, Greg Weisman? YES PLEASE. I'm hoping "Artemis" is just a new name for Arrowette. And a black Aqualad? Really? Still, I'm incredibly excited for this.
You know what this show needs? Snowflame! (Linkara making a cameo wouldn't hurt either)

edit: Shouldn't the guy from deep under the sea away from natural light be albino if anything?

Here's a larger image of the promotional picture. I hope Bart's goggles are an indication that he'll be his fun-loving Impulse personality.

Anyone want to lay odds that this'll be the third Weisman series to get Screwed by the Network?

The Fastest Man Alive
Since Disney's not involved this time, I'm optimistic that this show won't be screwed over. Hopefully.
