Unpopular opinion, but am I the only one that feels this show is kinda overrated? I feel there some stuff in this show that hasn't aged very well. Also the fact that it feels like imitation anime, feels very cringy looking back on it.

@Shaun Ince i see your point.

i love ron as deathstroke but its so annoying how the show repeatedly call him slade because of censorship issues. when i was younger i didnt mind but now that the deathstoke title has become popular in the 2010s that evrytime i hear robin say slade i would shoutout just call him deathstroke.

TBH, I've been rewatching it and thinking it's actually held up really well. That's the beauty of opinions I guess and I respect yours.

I mean it's not perfect, like they recycle the plot of the titans getting completely destroyed in a battle, recovering their spirits, and then defeating the bad guys in the end in the first season. Plus, some of Terra's storyline wasn't perfectly written. And some of the comedy can be a little much.

But you also get the awesome performances and storylines of Scott Menville's awesome, dedicated Robin, Khary's Cyborg dealing with his cybernetic limits, and the incredibly smooth, hypnotic Ron Perlman Slade.

Plus creative episodes like when Cy and BB go into Raven's mind or the funny Mad Mod episode, or even the grim and saddening "How Long is Forever."

So, while there are flaws, like any good show has, in my personal opinions it has so many cool elements and depth and themes that cartoons of today (not singling out TTG, just saying superhero and other cartoons in general) don't have.

Plus, it had an extremely cool soundtrack.

@GreenGoblin75 Yeah there are a good amount of positives with the show, but I don't see it as being the be all end all cartoon from the DCAU.

@Shaun Ince Do you think 'Teen Titans Go' is Better than This?
Shaun Ince
said at 1:36 PM on Thu Jul 13 2017
@EPA Deane No. But I don't think it's as brilliant as some people make it out to be. Infact I'll go as far to say that I enjoy Young Justice more than this, which also focuses on teen superheroes.
said at 1:13 PM on Wed Aug 30 2017
@Abdullab To be frank, I love the name Slade better than Deathstroke. Deathstroke sounds a bit on the generic side, while Slade is much more unique sounding. Your typical villian doesn't call himself "Slade" and I believe the name is quite fitting for the character.

@Shaun Ince - I don't really see anyone toting this show as a masterpiece, honestly. Sure the show has a strong fanbase and it has a lot of good elements going for it, but I think you're over exaggerating the praise this show gets. It does have a lot of flaws, and a lot of stupid moments throughout. But hey, what show doesn't have flaws?

I think the only reason the praise seems this strong nowadays is because it's mostly in retaliation to how Teen Titans Go is being received. Not that it's for no reason, mind you; objectively TTGo seems to lack a lot of wit and substance that the original show had. So nostalgia tends to get the better of people. Doesn't help that that show tends to compare itself likes to compare itself to the original as well (sometimes in a rather petty fashion)

@HyperVoiceActing Eh I beg to differ. There's a lot of people outside of this site that put this show on a huge pedestal that I don't believe it deserves. I won't deny that Teen Titans Go resorts to pettiness to get a rise out of people, but people take way too much offense to it, to where it comes across as whining.

@Shaun Ince I have to agree with you. It's a good series, but it's nothing compared to the DCAU and Young Justice.

Besides, while I think Ron Perlman is a good actor, his version of Deathstroke did nothing for me. Sounds too monotone and his character is pretty one-dimensional.

@Shaun Ince X-Men Evolution was also much better at the teen superhero stuff than Teen Titans IMO.
said at 4:49 AM on Wed Apr 25 2018
They didn't say deathstroke in the series because the name was considered too violent for the younger audiences who may be watching. I know crazy, right?

Season 5 was Beast Boy's story, just like how season 4 was Raven's, season 3 was Cyborg's, season 2 was (arguably) Terra's, and season 1 was Robin's. If only there was a season that focused on Starfire, then it would've all seemed complete.

If it ended at the 6th Season it would've been more satisfying.

I wish this show would come back to CN. This show was beyond good, and I don't much care for TTG. The only reason I watched some of TTG was when my nephew was interested in it. Good thing he is no longer interested in TTG.

I actually have an amusing story to tell. Back when the series started coming out on DVD, I bought the first season and proceeded to watch it. When I put on the final episode where Slade forces Robin to work for him there's that scene where he activates the nanobots that harms the other Titans. I must have had the TV on loud enough for my mom to hear Starfire moaning in pain, which she misinterpreted as a moan of passion and assumed I was watching a dirty porno.

For me, as a child, Slade was a truly terrifying villain. Why? Because he was always so calm.

I absolutely need to re-watch this show again. I remember seeing countless episodes years ago (first airings, even?), and I remember so many little moments from it. Really, it's not enough little moments for me to go back to it IMMEDIATELY... but one thing alone will account for it.

Four words: Ron Perlman as Slade.
said at 3:56 PM on Fri Feb 14 2014
@DreamMaster08X I think you'll love season four. That season has one of the best story arcs I've seen in a cartoon, and if you ask me, it took some real risks for a kid's show.

One thing Puzzles me about this series.

Did the cast record their lines first, or was the animation done first & the cast dubbed in synchronization using time codes? it's hard for me to tell.

Recordings first. That's always the case for western animation.

@VctrBnsn Totally right. I think it's a shame we couldn't have gotten one more season with Slade. And now that I think of it, I'm not sure I could even pick a favorite Titan. When you have that many good characters in a show, you know it's awesome.

I freaking loved this show. I was consistently smiling due to the humor and the charming and likable characters. Ron Perlman was stunning and made Slade one of my all-time favorite cartoon villains. Although season 3 didn't have as much payoff as the others and season five was an disappointing mixed bag the show was getting better and better with time. The rest of the cast all turned in wonderful performances and the episodes had writing creative enough for every cast member to have fun and be as entertaining as they could be.

The animation was truly gorgeous and extremely expressive thanks to borrowing a few things from anime to give it that stylistic edge that draws so many to it, the music from what I remember got you excited without being distracting, and a love it or hate it theme song that I personally really enjoy. I don't know about everyone else, but I personally enjoy this series much more than Batman The Animated Series. It is simply a great, funny, charming, entertaining, action-packed cartoon that also had some really edge of your seat writing at time.

Season four was impressive, I can't imagine how great it would have been if they didn't have to deal with strict censorship. I'm still surprised they got away with that scene with Slade and Rave when her birthmarks start appearing... that was a little shocking. Overall, one of my favorite shows of all time and I hope they continue it somehow one day.

After Batman: The Animated Series and Justice League, this show is probably my favorite of DC's cartoons. It's interesting and has likable characters. Plus it had an engaging storyline, and beautiful animation. It's definitely memorable, and I enjoyed watching it when it was on.

Looking back at this show and comparing it to other DC animation ventures, it has become my opinion that this is, relatively speaking, DC's best animated work until the DC Nation shorts came along.

While the show's "default" character design is basically Bruce Timm with Japanimation influence mixed in and the show's use of Japanese visual tropes may come across as an attempt to cash in on the growing success of Japanimation in America, this actually allows the show to create specific character expressions and generally work against the rigidness and bland, repetitive character design that the DCAU is infamous for. Oh, and actually having distinct, recognizable voices helps too; I couldn't remember any of the voices in, for example, Young Justice for the life of me, but I can pinpoint voices like Raven's or Beast Boy's in a heartbeat.

Regardless of whether the show's style was an artistic choice or a corporate decision, it was definitely a step in the right direction in terms of DC actually taking advantage of the animation medium's ability to do what other mediums cannot. It is a shame that Glen Murakami opted to stray from this direction in favor of being yet another stiff Bruce Timm clone when he went to make Ben 10 and the like.

Here's hoping that DC learns something from their current DC Nation shorts experiment and starts making more shows like this in the future.

@CatsTuxedo Do you mean all the voices in Young Justice or just the main cast?
said at 9:32 PM on Sun Feb 24 2013
@coolgeek176 Definitely most of them. Of course, some voices like Tim Curry or Bill Faggerbakke are just too distinct to truly smother, and those ones especially stick out.
said at 5:03 PM on Tue Mar 5 2013
@CatsTuxedo I very much agree. I own all three volumes of Batman The Animated Series on DVD, and I have to say, although it has some great episodes and a few performances like Mark Hamill really stand out... I don't think it's aged nearly as perfectly as everyone says it has. The design and colors in that series were far too limited and bland. Although the writing was solid the characters didn't have nearly as much personality as the ones in Teen Titans.

Yet for some reason... some people complain about Teen Titans for having anime influences to actually make it entertaining to watch? So that it's not the same Bruce Timm design as every single thing that came before it? Critics also talk about how deep and dark BTAS could be and say that TT was too kid friendly and watered down. Okay, the Trigon arc in TT was darker than anything the entire BTAS did, and BTAS is deeper and more adult? Sorry, just because one is more loaded up on melodrama and boohoo-how-tragic doesn't make it more adult.

I think that TT's formula was more diverse and entertaining than most of anything BTAS ever did, some critics just deny it because they hate anime influences in western animation and because they like to think that they're high-brow. Not saying that's everyone's reason for not liking Teen Titans, but a lot of the people who outright dismiss this series just perplexes me. Even good old Crispin Freeman was ripping on this show at a CON one time. *sigh*
said at 6:48 PM on Tue Mar 5 2013
@CatsTuxedo I misinterpreted Crispin Freeman, he was discussing something else related to American cartoons and used Teen Titans as an example. The rest I stick too though.
said at 9:04 PM on Tue Mar 5 2013
@PsychicVoiceSpy I wouldn't completely blame some critics for railing on anime influence in western animation, since that kind of thing has been done poorly before, but TT made it work by using visual anime tropes as tools rather than means onto themselves and created character-specific expressions and physical acting with the aid of those tools. Come to think of it, that may be the very same reason Avatar is so popular as well.
said at 12:34 AM on Wed Mar 6 2013
@CatsTuxedo With Avatar, I think it had more to do with the high quality of the stories told and characters developed. Animation and art style is trivial compared to those things.
said at 5:03 AM on Wed Mar 6 2013
@TheVengeanceKnight Story and characters are fine and all, but those can be pulled off in any live-action production. Teen Titans and Avatar achieved that extra push of theirs by allowing themselves to let loose and have fun every now and then, take advantage of their medium and create moments and actions that can only be achieved in animation. It's that element that separates cartoons from live-action and it's what all animators should strive to accomplish in their work.
said at 12:26 PM on Wed Mar 6 2013
@CatsTuxedo I agree to an extent, if they aren't using the medium of animation to be creative and making a conscious effort to entertain they're doing it wrong. If Avatar had, say, the same animation as Scooby Doo Where Are You? I wouldn't have given it more than two episodes. Instead, it accomplished with it's story, characters, music, writing, and had absolutely fantastic and imaginative animation that had passion behind it. If they would have done the same thing with boring, limited animation I would have preferred to just read a book or a graphic novel of it instead.

Writing and characters are important, a lot of people wouldn't want to watch something like Avatar or Teen Titans if it was just pretty and stimulating visuals with no substance. However, animation quality and creativity with the art style is not trivial in the slightest, if you want to create a good animated project it needs to be entertaining and stimulating, good writing isn't enough to do it right.

I agree with you, animators use their talents for different purposes but it should be used in a way that stands out from real life.
said at 8:08 AM on Fri Mar 8 2013

"Who needs story and characters when you've got wacky animation?" is the new "Who needs brain cells when you've got swag?" :-P
said at 3:44 PM on Fri Mar 8 2013
@TheVengeanceKnight I never said to totally disregard story and characters. What I was trying to convey is that animators should be allowed to do their job properly and bring a sense of life and appeal to the characters (especially if the writer fails to do so) without being needlessly shackled into rigidness and banality by a system that stifles creativity and individual input. And if Batman of Shanghai proves anything, animation with actual life instilled into it doesn't necessarily have to be "wacky". To reiterate, the one element that separates animation from all other mediums is the animation, and if that element isn't being exercised to its fullest potential, then what's the point?

I bet if you told an animator to their face that their work was trivial compared to that of a scriptwriter (who probably doesn't even specialize in animation), you'd have your clock cleaned in no time at all.
