Ain't that the truth. :-\

Idk if this would be appropriate to share here considering recent events, but I've written Part One of a Mortality story in case anyone is interested. If anyone wants to read it, you can PM me and I'll shoot you a link.

I'd rate it PG for spoops and one reference to a person being a prostitute.
Happy October everyone!

It happens everytime something beloved is re imagined. The show seems a little goofy compared to the original but it's cute. (The original being goofy as well, but with all the dark edgy bits to make your 12 year old rage bubble)

Well, I don't think there's anything wrong with liking Teen Titans Go. If you enjoy it, go ahead! Nothing wrong with having different tastes. :P

If you want to know the REAL reason why people hate it, I'll tell you, but like Kitsy said it might just ruin the experience for you. So you don't have to read it. If you're still curious tho, here it is: Let's travel back in time to the year 2003. Back in the early 2000's, people thought cartoons couldn't be anything other than being silly, dumb, and over the top random. Then Teen Titans aired. And it proved that cartoons could be SO much more than people gave them credit for! They could be funny, but they could also be dark! They could have fun characters, but could also have a serious plot! Teen Titans was a smart cartoon in a time that people thought that cartoons could only be stupid.

Now flash forward 10 years to present day. The standard for cartoons has gone a complete 180. Now a days, people literally expect cartoons to defy the standard and try something different from the original mold. Cartoons like Gravity Falls and Steven Universe are super popular and beloved by viewers, not only because they're entertaining, but because they're actual ART! it is now an age where people treat cartoons like they're more than just "kids stuff". There's substance that any age can love and enjoy! Then a new Teen Titans show is announced, and all of the original fans are excited as heck. Then it finally comes out, and everyone hates it. The reason why? IT'S EVERYTHING THAT THE ORIGINAL WAS TRYING TO NOT BE. Teen Titans was serious. Go is silly. Teen Titans was smart. Go is dumb. Teen Titans was a progression. Go is a digression. Teen Titans was ahead of it's time. Go is behind it's time. Teen Titans defied the standard. Go tries to stay within the standard. 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to hate on Teen Titans Go, and I don't fault people who enjoy it! If you can see something in TTG that I and other people can't, i'm happy for you. But I think it's hard for most people to respect a show whose creators have absolutely no understanding on why the original was good to begin with.

@The ninja artist
I have a hard time disagreeing. I wasn't a huge fan of the original series, but I did find it watchable. Sometimes, it was pretty good. Sometimes, it was even great. There was this one episode where Robin obsessively hunts for Slade, even threatening his own friends in the process. Turned out he was hallucinating -- going mad, losing his mind. That's some heavy stuff. It went to some bold places.

My brother likes Teen Titans Go!. I've picked up on a few moments that are self-aware, acknowledging the original series and also contempt for the new one. I don't hate it, because I think it knows what it is. I do not find it watchable. (One positive, though: I stumbled into the room while this was playing. That episode was apparently some kind of music video -- totally eighties and experimental. I was like, "Hey, what's this?" And he was like, "Teen Titans Go!" And I was like, "Are you serious?!" Because I totally couldn't tell.)

Totally random, but one of my friends had a crush on Terra.

I just didn’t expect something from Teen Titans Go to be that good.

Oh. You must mean the song. Yeah, surprised me too. (If they were to make an entire show of imitation 70s/80s music with psychedelic animated characters, there's a chance I'd actually watch it. They're not gonna do that, and I'm not saying they should. Clearly, I'm not their intended audience.)

Nice post Ninja, though I do have to disagree with something. Teen Titans aired in a post-Batman The Animated Series world, people already expected Super Hero cartoons to be worth while.

@Star: very good point Star. Still, a lot of cartoons during that time were pretty goofy, so Teen Titans was still ahead of it's time.
