Recap / Teen Titans Go S 3 E 46 Booty Scooty

Go To

  • Awesome, but Impractical: The Rube Goldberg Device mentioned below.
  • Beat Them at Their Own Game: Robin's idea of fighting rich land barons with money is to throw more money at them, hence the treasure hunt.
  • Bookends: The episode starts and ends with characters having to do the Booty Scooty.
  • Community-Threatening Construction: The Titans Tower is threatened to be torn down to make way for a mall. Everyone but Robin is looking forward to it.

  • Contractual Genre Blindness: Robin's constant insistance on doing things 'the right way', even when the others point out all the ways danger could have been avoided.
  • Rube Goldberg Device: Once Robin's sufficiently embarrassed himself, the Titans start one up...which fails to even open the fence keeping Robin out. The ghost uses one on the Titans after being upset with Robin's offering of one lousy gem and also fails.
  • Shaking the Rump: Robin, much to his reluctance, has to do the Booty Scooty in front of the other Titans just so they can let him into the Tower. The Freak also has to do the same thing at the end of the episode.
  • Stuffy Old Songs About the Buttocks: The Booty Scooty Dance.
  • Whole Plot Reference: This episode is one to The Goonies. It even includes a scene where they skip a fight with a giant octopus because they're short on time, like the deleted scene from the film.

  • Worthless Yellow Rocks: The Titans feel all the treasure in the attic, including the map, could save the tower instead of going on a treasure hunt.
