Recap / Teen Titans S1 E7 "Switched"

Go To

Starfire: Very very good! What was your joyful thought?
Raven: You don't want to know.
Starfire: Oh, but I do! Please tell me, what did you imagine?
Raven: not talking.

The Titans receive a box of puppets, which they accept eagerly. However, the puppets prove to be a tool for the Puppet King to take over the Titans' bodies, and that night, the Titans' souls/minds are transferred to the dolls, but a mishap causes the dolls to release Starfire and Raven's souls/minds and put them back in the wrong bodies. The two girls then must learn to use each other powers in order to save the boys.



  • Comically Missing the Point:
    Starfire: Oh, Raven, this is awful! Terribly awful!
    Starfire: Very well. [begins babbling at lightspeed, nuking inanimate objects as she goes]
  • Demonic Possession: The three male Titans get their bodies hacked with lifeless strings loyal to Puppet King.
  • Flat "What": Raven's response to being told she has to "feel" flight while in Starfire's body.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: Starfire is Raven and Raven is Starfire.
  • Girl's Night Out Episode
  • How Do I Shot Web?: The girls get stuck with each other's powers as well as their bodies, and have to figure out how to use each other's powers in this episode. Although both their powers are emotion-based, Starfire uses hers by letting her emotions free while Raven is generally forced to suppress hers so her powers don't get out of control, so getting used to the switch is tricky at first.

  • Mind-Control Eyes: The boys all have glowing blue-green eyes when under the Puppet King's control.
  • Voices Are Mental: Interestingly, the voices were originally supposed to stay with the body, but because Tara Strong and Hynden Walch were so good at imitating each others' characters' voices, the directors decided to just have them keep their voices.

How well does it match the trope?
