Teen Titans Go! - "Mr. Butt" Clip and Images

Starfire's sister, Blackfire, wants to pay a friendly visit. Has she really given up her evil ways?

There's another all-new episode of Teen Titans Go! headed your way. On Thursday, June 12, at 6:00/5:00 CST, "Mr. Butt" premieres on Cartoon Network.

Blackfire pays a surprise visit to her sister Starfire, saying she wants to spend some quality time with her. The other Titans think that Blackfire is playing another trick, but Starfire is sure that this time Blackfire is serious about reviving their sisterly love.

There's a video clip at the top of the page.

Check out the additional images below.

The death of quality DC animation, and the death of any respect the Teen Titans ever had.

@captainmarvel4ever: In your opinion, of course. I absolutely love the Wolfman/Perez NEW TEEN TITANS and I find this show pretty hilarious as well. It doesn't ruffle my feathers to see another interpretation for a different audience.

Says you huh?

Posted by CaptainMarvel4Ever

@g_man: It does for me. These shows are how we expose kids to comics, it's not like the old days where you could get comics at grocery stores or on news stands, these animated series are how we get to kids. Also keep in mind that in this modern day, the animated adaptions have to compete with Anime, which is already hard to do.

This is the only animated series DC has to represent itself, and I don't see people respecting DC because of it. No kid is going to watch this and grow up to love the Tenn Titans, maybe ridicule them, but not respect them. Not to mention that Cyborg is going to be in a movie soon, and this is a VERY negative representation of him.

@patrat18: Not just me, everyone else online I've talked to has said this show is a disgrace to the Teen Titans, and I agree with them. We know DC is capable of better quality animation.

So, the exact opposite of her episode in the old show?

So funny how like five people "on the internet" speaks for the all the thousands and thousands of people that keep watching it. So what, I guess only me and patrat18 are watching? Great that WB is spending so much money on all the animators, editors, voice actors, marketing people, etc to make this show. Plus, all those silly advertisers paying money to run their ads on a show "everyone else online" seems to hate. ;)

@g_man: It's being shown on prime time (unlike Young Justice or GLTAS) and it's a mindless kids show, of course it makes cash, but it's bad for comics. Also it's not that expensive, this is one of the cheapest looking shows on TV, and critics agree it's awful.

OK, the polarized comments written here as dogma are getting on my nerves. For every negative review, I could counter with a positive one. Saying that TTG is disrespectful to the original Teen Titans is ridiculous, like saying my chocolate cake is disrespectful to my hot cocoa, or my IPA is disrespectful to my Guinness. They are two different recipes using the same great ingredient.

I try to keep an open mind, and I have come to the conclusion that cartoons are going to change and evolve. I loved Batman TAS. For entirely separate reasons, I loved Batman Brave and Bold. I grew up on Transformers, but I feel that Transformers Prime is superior. I didn't like the Green Lantern series, but was sad that Young Justice was cancelled. I love Teen Titans, and I also love TTG.

My 9 year old daughter consumes Justice League and JLU on Netflix. She has memorized line for line my The Tick Collected DVDs, and has dressed for Halloween as Ahsoka Tano, Hawkgirl, Raven (from the original series), and Thor Girl, and has her own TMNT and Transformers figures.

Right now, her and my favorite cartoon is TTG. It is silly. it has overt humor as well as subtle wit and easter eggs, and it has sequences that are belly laughs. The childish, simple animation in itself is part of the joke, and for kids who aren't big on season-long story arcs, the 15 minute non-sequential clips are easily watchable and enjoyable.

She has converted about a dozen of her non-superhero-liking school friends into devout TTG fans, and by consequence, they also have started watching and re-watching the original series. I have doled out scores of my carefully bagged and boarded TT comics that I bought in the 80's and 90's to her and her friends. Kids who have never, nor would ever be into comics come over to our house and read my old Marvel and DC comics. And they all "do" the voices from the cartoons while reading my venerable Wolfman and Perez books.

How is that bad for comics?

By the way, CaptainMarvel4ever, stay away from Baltazar and Franco's Tiny Titans run. I have a feeling your head would explode if you ever deigned to read one.

@thehonorablerj: I like Tiny Titans (to be honest if they made a show based on that series, I'd probably watch it). If this show was on while DC had other respectable shows, then I honestly wouldn't mind it, but when it's DC's only representation that sends a bad message. I may not be a fan of Marvel's current animated series, but at least I can sort of take them seriously. Comics already have a hard time competing with anime, and this makes it harder (not that I'm saying anime is bad)

The truth is that the average comic book reader is getting older every year, and without some gateway drug to lure in younger readers, our comics will be a lost art within our lifetime. So we have TTG and Tiny Titans. They are very similar in tone and art, and they DO lead kids to reading or watching more mature versions. One slumber party my daughter hosted (and I endured) recently had all of them watching Super Friends and cackling like idiots. The next morning, they watched 2 or 3 episodes of JLU that featured the Question, and LOVED every minute of it. A week later, after soccer, I took them for ice cream, and they all got it when I said, "Just as I thought...Thirty-TWO flavors!"

Respectfully and objectively, I say that kids who watch Teen Titans GO! do indeed grow to love the other versions of the Titans, and other forms of superheroes. If TTG can convert snotty, sassy 9-12-year-olds into avid comic book readers, it must be doing something right.

@thehonorablerj: ...The entire reason I hate TTG is because it destroys any chance of letting young kids like the material. They may find it entertaining at first, but as they get older they will only think it's stupid. You may be able to teach your kids to like comics, but not every kid has parents who can put that show into proper context. Shows like Young Justice, Green Lantern TAS, and Avengers EMH are just a few examples of shows that can be for kids, without talking down to kids. I still remember that all the shows I liked as a kid were exactly that, shows that were aimed at me, but took themselves seriously.

Posted by thehonorablerj

@captainmarvel4ever: Your rationale isn't rational. TTG isn't "destroying" anyone's chances to enjoy the source material. Most every phrase you use is absolute with no room for considering a counter-point: you HATE teen titans go...DESTROYS kids chances...DEATH of respect..NO KID is going to watch this and blah blah blah. Your opinions are as important as everyone else's here, but I wouldn't be proud of having such an iron clad resolution on a topic like this; people might get the idea that you have a closed mind.

Now, I admit that it's possible that they might think TTG is stupid when they get older, or MAYBE they will get the subtle humor that they didn't get when they were younger (seriously, have you re-watched some of the dreck that we LOVED in the 70s and 80s? Only a few cartoons hold up). Case in point, I have encouraged other parents to watch TTG with their kids. A few parents thought it was stupid (it is), but most thought it was clever and witty and dry, so I don't see the support for your claims.

I agree that YJ, GL, AEMH are great fodder for kids (my kids and I love most of them), but I also posit that nobody, kids included, can have just one form of entertainment. There has to be a balance of shows that are funny and shows that take themselves seriously. I can't wait for the next Marvel movie, but my wife and I were also the first in line to see a Million Ways to Die in the West. I enjoy bourbon but I also crave hot fudge shakes. Game of Thrones and Modern Family. Brahms and Steven Lynch. Trek and Wars. TT and TTG.

Don't COMPARE Teen Titans with TTG. Instead, try to enjoy them both on their own merits, and stop hating. Go watch the TTG "Dreams" episode twice and tell me you don't catch some of the wit the second time. Then watch the season finale of TT where Beats Boy rounds up a bunch of 3rd stringers and they beat the Brotherhoods asses. Then get some New 52 Justice League. It takes itself seriously.

Actually that's not true at all. When this show first came out alot of people hated it,the only negative comments this show gets now is from some adults, who liked the old TT show, which does not make sense. TT go is aimed for kids, but it also has some adult jokes and some pretty funny easter eggs.

I wish people would use their real name's and picture to see if they would dare comment something , i'm sick of people hiding themself's and just comment :P

I love the show, it makes me laugh and my baby sister, who's 5, loves it to. Also because of this show she became more willing and less frighten to watch the original Teen Titans show and grew to love that too. She still prefers the new one for it's absurdity but hey isn't that why we love Adventure Time too. Anyway she now is more into comics then before so I say let it keep going.

I think the sad part about this show is that there's no option. Whether or not you like the show, it's undeniable that it's not for everyone (I, personally, despise it), and all of the more teen- and adult-oriented DC animation has been flayed from the network and dumped in the trash. If you want to watch a DC cartoon, your options are TTG or reruns, and that makes me sad.

Posted by CaptainMarvel4Ever

@thehonorablerj: No idea why you went on a long rant about things unrelated to this show or animation in general, but the point is we need better. Until Cartoon Network gives us a show that can be taken seriously, DC is in the red zone.

Posted by Dslboy

@captainmarvel4ever: You are the one ranting here. Lets apply your same hypothesis on Marvel. Then, according to you, Marvel is also in the red zone, since Agents of Shield is not doing so well among the public either and their games are generally bad or still missing to this day.

You keep talking about how this affects DC in a negative way, even though DC isn't even associated with the show. The only thing that they share is the use of the characters, which in my point of view, TTG is doing a better job at fleshing out their personas then DC. Lets take a look at their comic counterparts and see if we can find similarities with each of the characters:

  • Dick Grayson isn't in the Teen Titans, plus he's called Nightwing.
  • Cyborg isn't in the Teen Titans, is in Justice League however, as a dull black stereotype character that hasn't had one moment of spotlight.
  • Starfire isn't in the Teen Titans, plus has no personality whats'o'ever.
  • Beast Boy wasn't in the Teen Titans, but in the Ravagers (He's on the New Teen Titans cover though).
  • Raven isn't in the Teen Titans and is still evil(?).

So to sum up:

  • They are not in the same team anymore.
  • They don't have their own ongoing series, except Dick, which again isn't related to the Teen Titans.
  • They aren't portrait as kids, as they do in the series.

Yes, TTG is currently the only DC show available for kids and is totally a fine show for them. It's no superhero show, but is a fun slapstick comedy that isn't afraid to go out of the box and try out new things. Plus, it has the original cast and producers, a huge reason to support the show even if you don't like it.

I agree that teen and pre-teens are currently missing out (although there is Arrow), however it is unlikely DC and Cartoon Network won't produce any more DC shows, since superheroes never been so popular.

@dslboy: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn't count, it's not animated.

Also the big problem with Teen Titans Go is that it doesn't represent how the comics are now, but people will think it does. Also, have you not read Justice League issue 27-29, Cyborg got all the spotlight.

The fact that TTG is the only kids show is the very root of the problem, kids deserve comic book shows that don't talk down to them, that's why shows like Young Justice, Green Lantern TAS, Avengers EMH, and other shows like them were good. Without a show like that, kids will grow up to look down on comics, and we wil lose thousands of potental fans. Sure we could save many, but it's still a problem.

I still don't understand how WB could even support this show while saying the Wolfman/Perez era never happened in the comics to begin with!

Also I'm sick of people giving this show credit for having its voice actors return. they'll say yes to ANYTHING!!!

This show is one off Tara Strong's 20 something roles in tv right now.

My god I love Cyborg in this series.
