Everyone loves trivia about their favorite animated features and series, but with over 100 years of animation history behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in cartoons in this continuing video series. You think you know cartoons? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

This week we're taking a look at Teen Titans Go!, the series that shows us what DC's young heroes do when they're not saving the world. Spoilers: as far as I can tell, it is mostly eating. The series is one of Cartoon Network's most popular series, except among fans who get really mad about jokes. This video takes a look at the history of this series from conception to design, to some of the many in-jokes littered throughout, as well as some of the team's more notable team-ups.

Show notes:

  • Start your meatball party by getting season one, part one here. Or get the complete first season on Blu-Ray here.
  • Or if you're real mad about Go! maybe relive your own childhood by buying season one of the non-Go! Teen Titans series here.
  • Since Teen Titans Go! exists to sell toys, maybe you should help prolong its existence by buying this action figure six-pack. Or maybe the Titans Tower playset? Maybe some pajamas? Are pajamas toys?
  • The first volume of the comics adaptation of the cartoon adaptation of a cartoon adaptation of a comic can be found here.
