‘Teen Titans Go!’ Invokes Schoolhouse Rock To Explain Human Metaphors To Starfire [Video]

TTG01

Starfire has a problem. Thanks to her alien upbringing and her unfamiliarity with the intricacies of Earth languages, she has a hard time communicating with her friends, who are always using the metaphors. She tends to be a little more literal, and that's making her feel a little "uncool" around her "teen" "pals."

Fortunately, this week's episode of Teen Titans GO!, "Knowledge," finds Raven willing to help, with the show going into full-on Schoolhouse Rock mode for a song about how to spice up her conversations, and it is amazing.

‘Teen Titans’ #1 Is A Classic First Issue With New 52 Art, And That’s The Problem [Review]

Teen Titans #1

Months before it even came out, this week's Teen Titans #1 was off to a pretty rough start. Not only did it have the stigma of being one of the few "New 52" comics to be canceled and relaunched in the three years since DC's line-wide superhero reboot, alongside last week's New Suicide Squad, but criticism over Kenneth Rocafort's cover sparked a controversy that would've drowned out the actual content no matter what the content of the issue was. And really, that's kind of a shame.

Teen Titans #1 isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a solid story of teenage superheroics, and like so many of the recent launches from DC, it feels like the type of thing that the New 52 should've been doing all along. If it just didn't look like it does, it'd be great.

That didn't last long. Though Scott Lobdell and Tyler Kirkham's Teen Titans run will conclude this month with issue #30 on April 23 and in the Teen Titans Annual #3 on April 30, DC will relaunch the title in July. Helming the relaunch is writer Will Pfeifer with Teen Titans Annual #3 artist Kenneth Rocafort, which should bridge the storylines, to an extent, with some visual continuity.

DC Comics may be concluding its New 52 Teen Titans series next month, but the characters live on through DC Collectibles, which will be releasing action figure versions of Wonder Girl, Superboy, Kid Flash and the newly revealed Red Robin. What's more, they've also let loose Arsenal from Red Hood and the Outlaw's wildly unique action feature -- the action figure can spin its ballcap backwards to fully embody the character's Poochie-like idiom.

Perception Vs. Reality: ‘Long Writer Runs’ At Marvel & DC [Opinion]

Nightwing Fantastic Four Batwoman

Last week, two of the very small handful of writers still working on DC Comics' New 52 titles they launched announced they were finally ending their runs. In the case of Teen Titans writer Scott Lobdell, the catalyst was the complete cancellation of the title with issue #30. Nightwing, meanwhile, will continue, but Kyle Higgins won't be writing it.

A distinctly different animal than the independent cartoonist, creators-owned collaboration or even work-for-hire artist, writing gigs in ongoing cape comics have always been fluid, but the turnover seems to be faster and more common now than it's ever been. Whether a result of cancellations, writers moving on to other things (often finite, creator-owned work), or creative differences with editorial, Marvel and DC writer runs are getting shorter and shorter.

Or are they? Maybe it just feels that way?

Breakfast Cheese Teen Titans Go Clip
Warner Bros. Animation

Between all of their brawls -- both with criminals and each other -- the cast of Teen Titans Go! channels more than their collective share of aggression. On tonight's new "Breakfast Cheese" episode on Cartoon Network, Starfire sees how it's affecting her friends and suggests a (perhaps) better alternative. After all, what does violence solve? Furthermore, what does cheese have to do with it? Fans will be able to see if the heroine's proposed lives of peace and nonviolence stick tonight, but in the meantime, you can catch our clip from the latest episode of TTG! after the jump.

Mego’s Teen Titans 7″ Figures Return In 2014 From Figures Toy Company

Mego's storied Worlds Greatest Super Heroes line of the '70s shaped an action figure era with 8" articulated plastic dolls adorned with cloth costumes, but there was a special corner of the line reserved for sidekicks standing just 7" tall. That line? The 1977 Teen Titans series featuring Speedy, Aqualad, Wonder Girl and Kid Flash. Following the release of several waves of Batman Mego reissues, Figures Toy Company is turning its attention to rolling out all four of the previously limited edition dolls in the first quarter of 2014.
