Over almost two years and over eighty episodes on the air, Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go has dropped its characters into a wide variety of different situations. They might go to the future, meet alternate versions of themselves, or die of old age. There are even songs.
Some critics have accused the show of being too silly, so in the episode debuting today, “Let’s Get Serious,” the Titans meet some of these critics in the form of Young Justice, the teen superhero team from their own, departed, animated show --- and they’re definitely not pleased with what they see. To battle their critics, the Titans grimace really hard until they too become incredibly serious, muscled, gritty one-liner-spouting versions of themselves.
We spoke to series producer Michael Jelenic about the crossover, bouncing criticisms back at detractors and pushing the show into even wider, weirder directions.
Beware the Batman and Young Justice are two examples of animated shows that haven't exactly been treated well. Both Warner Bros. series were unceremoniously pulled from Cartoon Network, only to return to burn off episodes, sometimes in the middle of the night.
Treatment like that would seemingly indicated little commitment to release the series on home video, but never fear, fans. Warner Archive announced this week that it will release the second part of Beware the Batman's first season and the complete first season of Young Justice on Blu-Ray. Along with those, the company will also offer the full second season of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and the classic 1960s Aquaman animated series will be available through Warner Archive's streaming service.

After a troubled development, several delays and news of the show it's based on being canceled, the video game Young Justice: Legacy is finally out today.
The game, which was written in conjunction with the show's producers and fills in the gap between Young Justice's first and second seasons on Cartoon Network, explains why some of the characters changed rather drastically. It's likely the last fans will be seeing of these versions of the characters, barring another tie-in comic series (the initial series, which ran for 25 issues, ended in February) or something similar. Check out a handful of screenshots after the jump.
Cartoon Network has pulled Beware the Batman off the air, even though it's only been part of its Saturday morning schedule since mid-July. The next episode, which was scheduled for this Saturday, won't be running.
Fans can hold out a little hope, though: Anthony Ruivivar, the actor who voices Batman on the show, Tweeted that it may return in January.
Cartoon Network's DC Nation block may now be devoid of new Young Justice episodes, but Little Orbit's Young Justice: Legacy video game is still forging ahead with its planned September 10 release date on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii-U, PC and Steam. On top of a full game trailer that dropped in May and a bit of footage shown at E3, Diehardgamefan has posted a few brand new screen shots from the in-continuity cartoon tie-in briding the show's first and second seasons.
