Recap / Teen Titans Go SP 1 TTGVPPG

Go To

The...somewhat awaited crossover between Teen Titans Go! and the 2016 Powerpuff Girls. It's billed as a Teen Titans Go episode.

It's a usual day in Townsville as Mojo Jojo sets about another world conquering plan. The Powerpuffs quickly arrive and stop him, but he manages to incapacitate them and warps to a place where heroes don't stop villains, AKA, Jump City. Once there, he recruits Cyborg and Beast Boy into his new plans. It doesn't take long for the Powerpuffs to follow after him, only for them run into Robin, Raven, and Starfire, who treat them like babies due to their age. The girls manage to convince the three to help them, though are hampered by the TTG's immaturity with Mojo likewise having problems on his own end with Cyborg and Beast Boy's partying nature, and soon it becomes a race to see who can complete their objective first.

Tropes

  • Crossover: If the title wasn't clear enough. This is a Teen Titans Go! episode that crosses over with The Powerpuff Girls (2016).
  • Description Cut: "A world where superheroes don't fight crime? What kind of horrible place is that?" Cut to Jump City and the Titans Tower.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Robin, Raven, and Starfire treating the Powerpuff Girls like little kids when they're acting less mature than the three.
  • Interactive Narrator: Robin is able to hear and communicate with the PPG narrator.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Though Tara Strong no longer voices Bubbles, specifically for the 2016 run of the Powerpuff Girls, she is reunited with Bubbles again, via her role of Raven of the Teen Titans.
  • Irony: The Powerpuffs, who just got transferred to elementary school, turn out to be more mature than the teenage Teen Titans.

  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Robin, Starfire, and Raven spend most of the episode acting very condescending towards the Powerpuff Girls, and calling them "babies". After the girls defeat Mojo Jojo and the Titans compliment the three young heroines for their victory, it looks like they've learned their lesson, but they get back to insulting the girls after Blossom replies that they couldn't have beaten Mojo without their help.
  • Just a Kid: How Robin, Raven, and Starfire treats the girls upon meeting them, despite the three clearly being more intelligent than kids their age would be.
  • Lemony Narrator: The narrator makes some cutting remarks about the Teen Titans being jerks and their complete uselessness in aiding the Powerpuff Girls in their mission to stop Mojo Jojo.
    Narrator: And so once again the day is saved, no thanks to the Teen Titans. Seriously, what's wrong with these guys?

  • The Load: Robin, Raven, and Starfire prove to be completely useless through the adventure, with the girls having to manipulate them into using their skills/powers to help them.
  • Meta Guy: Robin can hear the Powerpuff Girls narrator. Parodied, because he's crazy.
  • Mythology Gag:
  • Overly Long Title: The alternate title was "The Teen Titans Go! And Powerpuff Girls Completely Organic Crossover Special"
  • Overly Polite Pals: Starfire and Bubbles get into an argument over who's the most polite.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Beast Boy leaves a note to let the other Titans know he and Cyborg are helping a monkey, but all he writes is "Help! Monkey", making it look like Mojo kidnapped them.
  • Ringer Ploy: Mojo attacks the girls with his Powerpuff repellent, but they turn out to be Robin, Starfire and Raven in disguise, while the real girls sneak up from behind and stop him.
  • Self-Deprecation: The writers seem very well aware that the Teen Titans here are anything but heroic, and play this up in contrast to the PPG, who're completely focused on their task.
  • Spanner in the Works: Cyborg and Beast Boy help Mojo build his monkey army. Fortunately, their help results in an army of party monkeys.
  • Stopped Reading Too Soon: Robin tries to analyze the note Beast Boy left to find out where they went. Blossom figures it out just by reading the rest of the letter; "P.S.: We're at the zoo."
  • Unwitting Pawn: Cyborg and Beast Boy gladly help the "magic monkey", ignoring the obvious clues that he's really a supervillain.
