    Cartoon Network
    Teen Titans TV Series Cancelled?
    Days may also be numbered for Justice League.
    by KJB
    November 29, 2005 -

    Reports have begun circulating that the Cartoon Network has passed on their option to produce a 6th season of the animated Teen Titans series. Rumors had been circulating about the fate of both Teen Titans and Justice League Unlimited since previously announced new episodes have been quietly removed from the Cartoon Network schedule. Repeats should still run on the network and a promotional push is expected when the network finally programs the last new episodes.

    The Teen Titans fan site, TitansGo, received the news from a member of the production staff last night and reported the news today. Calls from IGN to Cartoon Network for comment on the news had not been returned by press time.

    Cartoon Net Says 'No' to 6th Season
    November 29, 2005

    TEEN TITANS SEASON 1 (2003)
    Cartoon Network
    According to the Titansgo.net Website the Cartoon Network has declined to order a sixth season of the Teen Titans animated series. Based on the DC comic, which is currently a fixture in the Top 25, the Teen Titans animated series with its anime-style graphics and tween-friendly storylines appealed to a younger demographic than the comic book.

    Fans of the series are circulating an online petition, but even if the Cartoon Network doesn't change its mind, the Teen Titans animated series will likely remain available thanks to reruns of the more than 67 episodes already aired as well as on DVD. The first season of the Teen Titans Animated Series on DVD will be available in February of 2006.

    Bandai America, which has released toys as well as a collectible card game based on the Teen Titans animated series, and DC, which publishes the comic, may benefit from the attention if fans heed the urging on fan Websites to buy more Teen Titans merchandise to show support for the show and help keep it on the air. Longer term, the fate of the licensed merchandise will depend on how TV exposure changes and the degree to which that change affects sales.

    A source very close to production of Teen Titans has alerted titanstower.com: The prospect of a sixth season of the popular series is looking very, very, very dim. So if anyone was inclined to start a letter writing campaign, it needs to be started yesterday!

    If you feel there are more Titans stories to be told, let Cartoon Network know how you feel. Snail mail is the most effective way. Scores of individual letters have the most impact; Petitions are generally worthless in networks' eyes. The best bet is to start a letter writing campaign with individual heartfelt letters stating you would like the show to continue.

    Comics in Context #74: Warners, Wabbits and Woe
    March 04, 2005
    written by Peter Sanderson

    (excerpt)

    Once again Warners Animation is casting its lot with the American boom in interest in Japanese anime and manga. This works in the Teen Titans animated series (see "Comics in Context" #52: "Mod as a Hornet"). I note the irony that when Marv Wolfman and George Perez created The New Teen Titans in the 1980s, they sought to make most of the Titans look and act as adult as possible; the TV show basically uses the Wolfman-Perez team (while, of course, not bothering to credit them), but presents them as kids, so the cartoony anime look seems appropriate. But then Warners launched its new series, The Batman, which is really a reboot of the continuity of the already classic Batman animated series of the 1990s. The new Batman series casts aside the handsome, Kirby-influenced style in which Bruce Timm and others designed its characters for a look that combines Japanese and contemporary American influences. In other words, it looks like a 1990s Image comic to me, and the characters look somewhat grotesque compared to their Timm counterparts.

    "I knew I wanted to do something with them, so we did some development for what I thought would be an Adult Swim series," continued Register. "We went in that direction and, while we were doing the Puffy pilot, we were working on the Teen Titans show. The Teen Titans were so anime influenced, when the time came I encouraged Glen Murakami to listen to the band, told him about the pilot and how that might not happen, but thought we should get the girls to do the Teen Titans theme song. He was all into it, so we went ahead and had them do the song."

    Register explained, "We have a lot of things in development and many will never be made into series - it's like many will enter, few will win. We only put two or three new shows out a year, so obviously everything in development is like playing the Lotto. Puffy at that point was on the fence. I thought it wouldn't happen. They did such a great job on the song for the Teen Titans. It came out and it was so addictive. It really helped that so many people were singing the theme songs, it was one of the great things about the Teen Titans cartoon. It was like bringing back a Brady Bunch type theme song. Everyone loved it and it really pushed Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi show that much closer to getting greenlit. We did a pilot on the Teen Titans DVD now and the rest is 26 episodes history."

    NEW TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT TP (2003) (5 Mar 2003)

    TEEN TITANS SEASON 1 (2003)
    Cartoon Network
    BW: Were you a fan of the comic book series?

    David: One of the reasons they brought me on is that I'm NOT a comic book guy. I've read some -- I've read a lot, actually, now. I wasn't into comic books much though. Instead, I was reading science-fiction. I knew about the Teen Titans through their one appearance on - was it the Superfriends? - when we were much younger. Anyways, I was a big Spider-Man fan growing up. So I was pretty unfamiliar with the Titans growing up. So I dug into a huge stack of the stuff that George [Perez] and Marv [Wolfman] had done - all of which is entertaining and brilliant. Really cool to look at and really revolutionary.

    My role on the show was that when Sam and Glen would get into some argument about "What Super-Adaptoid could and could not do" to sit there and go, "Guys, no one knows what you're talking about anymore." We wanted the show to appeal to a broader audience so we didn't want to get too lost in the Titans mythology of stuff. So one of the things I brought was UNfamiliarity with the property. And I think that helped bring a fresh perspective to things. "But we were able to find our way of doing it that fit our show and I think we still honored what that character of Terra was: a lost, mixed up teenage girl whose a lot stronger than she realizes."

    That said, I've really enjoyed working with Marv, who's a great writer. And we've done our best at every turn to honor the spirit in which that original comic book was created. Like the stuff we did with JUDAS CONTRACT. For a lot of reasons, we couldn't do what they did in the comic book exactly. For one thing, they did it very well so what's the point in doing it again? But we were able to find our way of doing it that fit our show and I think we still honored what that character of Terra was: a lost, mixed up teenage girl whose a lot stronger than she realizes.

    Teen Titans (2003+) on Kid's WB follows the adventures of younger superheroes of the DC universe - including Robin (voiced by Scott Menville), Beast Boy (Greg Cipes), Cyborg (Khary Payton), Starfire (Hynden Walch), and Raven (Tara Strong) - as they take on the villain Slade (Ron Perlman) and his henchmen from H.I.V.E. (the Hierarchy of International Vengeance and Extermination). Unlike Justice League Unlimited, Teen Titans is not part of the DC Comics animated continuity.

    Generally full of youthful exuberance and wackiness (as compared to the rather more somber and staid Justice League Aventures of their adult conterparts), Teen Titans also has episodes with a "message," when Titans learn to deal with fear, obsessions, jealousy, anger, and other emotions and problems that young people deal with, as they grow and mature. Of course, the message rarely gets havy enough to drown out the fun. Combined with the classic Batman: TAS style of animation, which also works very well with Justice League Adventures, Teen Titans has held a strong position on Kids' WB.

    Teen Titans is still finding its footing. Aug. 28 marked the official beginning of the third season with "Deception," though the series had shown only 26 episodes before that date. Tied in with, not one, but two comic-book titles - the classic Teen Titans series and the younger, more directly tied-in Teen Titans Go! - the show has a broadening audience, both young and old. Teen Titans: Divide and Conquer, which collects the first six episodes, is in store Sept. 28 on DVD and VHS.

    Monday, August 2, 2004

    David Slack, producer of the Teen Titan animated series, dropped hints about upcoming episodes during the Warner Bros. Animation panel at Comic-Con International recently.

    "In Season 3, look for a return of Slade in a really cool way that we're all happy with," said Slack, who appeared on stage with producer Glen Murakami and actors Ron Perlman (Slade), Tara Strong (Raven), Scott Menville (Robin) and Greg Cipes (Beast Boy).

    "There's an arc centered around Cyborg and we see the apperance of a very popular villain from the comics, Brother Blood, who was a ton of fun to write. And in Season 4, we are telling a little story about Raven. And then there's the conclusion of the 'Judas Contract' story that will be airing soon, with Terra."

    Now that the word is out on several Titans related websites that Brother Blood makes his appearance in season three of the animated Titans series, and that they will be introducing Titans East, a new group of teen heroes, I can finally say that I wrote the first part of a two-part third season ender which not only introduces Titans East but also features the evil Brother Blood. He's a bit different, okay, a lot different from the religious fanatic original George and I created, but like the Titans themselves, if you scrape past some of the surface stuff, he's not all that unlike ours.

    In the next week or so I'll be putting up a new page of Titans toys which are and will be available at your neighborhood shops. I'm really doing this as much for me as for everyone out there as I want to have as complete a list as possible on all Titans toys. So, if anyone out there learns of a Titans-related whatever it might be that's going on sale, let me know click EMAIL MARV to the right and I'll thank you by name on this site (unless you wish to remain anonymous, of course).

    Johns mentioned the TEEN TITANS CARTOON in this nice summary of the series:

    "The great thing about the Batman series, it pioneered it for so many other things. Without all these guys did on Batman, we wouldn't have the Justice League animated series, we wouldn't have the Superman animated series, we wouldn't have the Teen Titans animated series. We want them to survive and thrive grow and change. But at the same time, we have to keep the iconic status, and that's what these guys did."

    INTERNATIONAL POP OVERDOSE: TEEN TITANS GO!
    posted 05-18-2004 09:43 PM
    BY TROY BROWNFIELD

    I’m jumping the shark. Okay, so I’m not really going to get on skis in a leather jacket, and I’m already rethinking the use of that woefully beaten-to-death phrase. Actually, I guess you could say that I’m “straying from the mission statement.” A bit. Last time, I was able to justify covering The O.C. because of the comic references and a set DVD release date. So how do I explain myself now? Just like a high school kid who drags in from a party smelling like a brewery, I’d better have a pretty good reason.

    And I do. This week’s topic, Teen Titans has its first DVD in the works, and hails from a line of several animated appearances. And there’s the whole thing about Jen asking me to cover Teen Titans. Therefore, in the name of Contino, I cover a DVD that hasn’t even come out yet. Tolerate, won’t you?

    (excerpt)

    Then, in 1980, the Marv Wolfman and George Perez run of The New Teen Titans began. DC found themselves with a mega-hit that’s still fondly remembered as one of the bright lights of the comic form. The line-up proved so popular that Cyborg was even added to the final season of Super Friends (and even granted an action figure) in 1985. Dubbed The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians, it was the last season of that long-running show.

    TEEN TITANS SEASON 1 (2003)
    Cartoon Network
    TEEN TITANS ANIMATED SERIES SEASON 2 (2004)
    For the purposes of this article, we're going to say that the truly authentic New Teen Titans were the ones that cropped up in the 1980s.

    See, the first Teen Titans appeared in the 1960s. Then they experienced a minor lull and underwent a semi-reinvention in the '70s, adding characters like the Joker's Daughter, The Bumblebee, Bat-Girl and Golden Eagle.

    But it wasn't until 1980 when DC Comics emerged under an official The New Teen Titans comic title that the transformation was complete. Previewed in DC Comics Presents #26, this fresh-faced crew fused the older standbys like Robin, Wonder Girl and Kid Flash with entirely original characters like Cyborg, Starfire, Raven, Terra and Changling.

    The major difference between this camp and its band of '60s predecessors was that, this time, the Teens were no longer sidekicks. They'd finally emerged from the shadows of their mentors (with the aid of gradual age progression) to become their own men... and women. This time around, they were confident enough in their own ability to bust the bad guys without having to play second fiddle or beg an assist from their older superheroic counterparts.

    Under this title, Wonder Girl married and Robin graduated college. Then, in 1988, the comic title evolved, dropping the "Teen" from its name to become The New Titans, and crimefighting business went on as usual for another eight years.

    But any channel-surfing animated series enthusiast knows that yet another group of New Teen Titans airs regularly on the Cartoon Network. So will the newest New Teen Titans one day become passe, only to be usurped by another newer New Teen Titans crew? Well, if history is any indication, we'd guess so....

    Subway, famous for their sandwiches and their commercials with the formerly fat Jared, has swiped the McDonalds Happy Meal idea just like any good major fast food chain should. They’ve previously put out toys for the Justice League, but this is their first offering for the Teen Titans, as far as I know. Their Kids Packs come with a deli style sandwich and a juice box, and the all-important toy. I would like to be able to report to you the duration of the Teen Titans toy promotion, but that information isn’t available on their website. So if you’re interested, get to a Subway as fast as you can.

    This weekend's new episode "Winner Take All," airs at 9PM on Cartoon Network, and features everyone's favorite underwater-fish-talking-guy, Aqualad!

    I can't recall if I wrote about this, or if I just talked about it with some friends, but I am incredibly proud of the work I've done on Teen Titans, and I am so grateful that I get to be part of it.

    The last time I was over there, when I was walking from my car to the studio, someone called out to me, "Hey! Aqualad!" and the biggest smile filled my face. It was quite a contrast: when someone calls out, "Hey! Wesley!" I sort of look at the ground and wish I was invisible . . . but when this unseen person called me "Aqualad" my heart jumped, and I looked around to see who said it.

    As J-pop, anime, DC comics, manga and cartoon fans already know, Puffy AmiYumi perform the theme song for Teen Titans, the long-awaited new Cartoon Network series that premiered on July 19 and will be shown every Saturday at 9:00 p.m. "Teen Titans Theme" is a shout-along instant classic that somehow manages to blend the spy-movie cool of Johnny Rivers' "Secret Agent Man" with the adolescent excitement of the Ramones' "Blitzkreig Bop." You can listen to a snippet of it right now at: www.CartoonNetwork.com/titans/index.html

    There's lots more cool stuff on the new Puffy AmiYumi album, NICE., due out on August 12, including "Tokyo Nights" and "Your Love Is the Drug" (Your favorite radio stations should have dvances of these tracks NOW.) NICE. was produced by power pop whiz Andy Sturmer, the former Jellyfish drummer. It contains 15 minutes of live video footage from Puffy AmiYumi's 2002 North American tour and features remarkable new artwork, inspired by John Lennon and Yoko Ono's famous Bed-In for Peace, exclusive to the North American edition.

    Another NICE. Idea: You can now take Ami and Yumi home with you - at least in the form of those ultra-cute and highly-collectible plastic, pose-able figures called SMITIS. Ami and Yumi have had the honor being immortalized alongside the Osbournes and KISS by this maker of hip, grown-up toys that have attracted collectors from around the world. Go to www.smitis.com/news.asp for more info, store locations and online ordering.

    You can pre-order NICE. at Amazon.com or www.bar-none.com. And you can check out more info about Puffy AmiYumi at www.puffyamiyumi.com. Have a NICE. day!

    As Torres explained, and as those who’ve watched the series know, Teen Titans draws from both anime and the Marv Wolfman/George Perez New Teen Titans. “It's the Wolfman/Perez Titans for a generation of kids whose cartoon heroes are the Powerpuff Girls and the Dragonball gang,” Torres said. “But there's plenty to enjoy for those of us who grew up on the New Teen Titans comics who are still, ahem, young at heart. We're designing the comic in the same all-ages, fun for the whole family, style.”

    Unless you've been hiding out for the past two weeks, you probably have heard that Teen Titans #1 sold out from DC nine days before it hit the stands. The newly revitalized title, written by Geoff Johns (Flash, JSA) and illustrated by the team of Mike McKone (pencils) and Marlo Alquiza (inks), was nearly impossible to find at cover price at Comic-Con International: San Diego, and the variant cover by Michael Turner (Fathom) was even harder to locate. Now the second printing is available, with a cover paying homage to the Marv Wolfman - George Perez era New Teen Titans #1. And other than a few team members, what does the latest Teen Titans have in common with its illustrious predecessor? Great story, great art and lots and lots of attention from collections. The Teen Titans cartoon is also up and running on Cartoon Network, so stay tuned.

    written by Bill Walko

    I've been sent two preview episodes of TEEN TITANS: THE ANIMATED SERIES. The operative word here is: FUN! The bouncy high-energy feel of the show is pure infectious fun. Now, as many of you know, I'm a long-time fan - and, like many - my favorite era is the Wolfman/Perez classic comics. The cartoon show draws from from that era for inspiration. The key word here is inspiration. The basic 'feel' of all the characters are there... but it's like they've been steamlined and de-aged a bit.

    When "Teen Titans" bows on Cartoon Network this Saturday fans will get a DC Comics animated show unlike the ones they've grown accustomed to starting with the dark "Batman: The Animated Series." Bright, colorful and bursting with spastic energy, "Teen Titans" is heavily influenced by anime and geared towards younger viewers.

    Cartoon Network has provided C2F/CBR News with this Q & A session with Glen Murakami, producer of the show, who talks about crafting a new kind of cartoon superhero series.

    Q: What types of stories are you trying to tell?
    Glen Murakami (GM): We're trying to tell stories that kids can relate to - by using problems that real teenagers have. For example, we'll deal with things like sibling rivalry and bullying, but not in an "after school special" kind of way. Our take is that the Teen Titans are real kids who just happen to have superpowers.

    In an interview with Geoff Johns by Wizard, Johns says the following about future character appearances in the new Teen Titans series:

    Quote:
    "Also, be on the lookout for other familiar faces, including Captain Marvel Jr., Hawk and Dove, a shocking 'Milestone' DC character.. .and that's just the beginning!"

    So it looks like Static from the old Milestone line will finally be hanging out with the Titans. There was some talk of this happening during the last incarnation (or was that with Young Justice?), but it never came to pass.

    Personally, I think it's a great idea. They should make him a full member. He has a successful cartoon but nowhere for readers to see him.

  • TEEN TITANS ANIMATED SUBWAY POSTER
  • Well, summer is finally here. That means steamy temperatures, a slower pace . . . and larceny.

    This summer's item du jour, at least as far as the MTA is concerned, are posters advertising Cartoon Network's "Teen Titans" series, which have been disappearing from subway stops and trains at an alarming rate.

    The series won't debut until July 19 (9 p.m.), but already the posters are being swiped daily. Since the ad campaign began about a week ago, the MTA has requested an additional 1,000 posters to replace those stolen from subways and trains. There's even a web site, dccomics.com, that lists where posters are still available (to be ripped off?) - and they're available on eBay.

    "Teen Titans," based on the comic book series, is being produced under the guidance of Glen Murakam ("Batman Beyond").

    Cartoon Network has released its programming schedule for August, which includes descriptions of four new episodes of Teen Titans.

    Here's a rundown of the Teen Titans episodes (all airing at 9 p.m.):

    Saturday, August 2: "Divide and Conquer"- Cyborg quits the Teen Titans after getting into an argument with Robin, and allowing Cinderblock to escape. Cinderblock returns to his mysterious boss Slade with his prize: a sleeping inmate who becomes the monstrous Plasmus whenever he is awakened. Can the Teen Titans handle the Plasmus without Cyborg on their side?

    Saturday, August 16: "Forces of Nature"- Dark clouds blow in, bringing Thunder and Lightning, two stormy brothers looking for a good time. Unfortunately their idea of fun is wrecking everything in sight. Meanwhile after one of Beast Boy's practical jokes misfires, Beast Boy learns his lesson. Can Beast Boy teach Thunder and Lightning his lesson before Slade harnesses the brothers' power to unleash a monster?

    Saturday, August 23: "Sum of His Parts"- Cyborg is reminded he's not completely human, when his power cell dies during a wild junkyard battle with the Amazing Mumbo. The Titans fear Mumbo has taken their friend, and search the city for Cyborg. But Fixit, a cybernetic hermit who finds and repairs broken things, finds Cyborg. When repairs are complete, will Cyborg be human at all?

    Saturday, August 30: "Nevermore"- Raven's creepy tantrum of crackling black energy leaves Dr. Light begging for mercy, and the Titans see a new side of Raven- her temper. But, when Cyborg and Beast Boy find a Mysterious Mirror in Raven's room, they're suddenly transported to a strange nightmare world that's somehow connected to Raven. Will Raven be able to guide the boys home, or will her "personal issues" destroy them all?

    Glen Murakami, producer of Cartoon Network's Teen Titans animated series, said that Robin will not be associated with Batman in the show.

    "In Teen Titans, we don't even really think of Robin as part of the 'Batman and ….' team," he said. "I'm trying to treat him as a brand new character that people have never seen before. He's the leader instead of the sidekick. He's independent. He's not in the shadow of his father figure, nor is he going to react in the same way Batman might."

    Murakami's comments were part of a question-and-answer provided by Cartoon Network about the series, set to launch on July 19. To read the complete interview, CLICK HERE.

    DC Comics' "Teen Titans" is set to make its animated debut on Cartoon Network in less than a month.

  • Being a member of the press sometimes has its perks. The "Teen Titans" press kit has us wondering if the west-coast city that the super-kids inhabit is Coaster City. In addition to the usual screener tape, colorful folders and materials, the "Teen Titans" kit also came with a set of five coasters, each depicting a member of the team, all contained in a nice metal canister. Click the images for a closer look.

    Batman's sidekick Robin leads fellow young teens Cyborg, Beast Boy, Starfire and Raven in the all-new high-adventure series. Fans will see it for the first time on Saturday, July 19, at 9 p.m. (ET, PT). Unlike the network's "Justice League," which teams DC's adult heroes, "Teen Titans" is aimed at younger viewers. Here's the network's description of the show:

    "'Teen Titans' features five teen superheroes each with special powers. Led by Robin, this group unites to form a force to protect their teeming, sun-baked city from a new generation of villains while coping with the challenges of adolescence. When they work together as a team, their powers are formidable. As superheroes, the Teen Titans are fully developed. But they struggle with the same challenges every teen would - things like sibling rivalry, taking responsibility, jealousy and fitting in with the group.

    "The Teen Titans live together in a high-tech command center that is also the ultimate hangout. They play video games, squabble and leave dirty dishes around. They get on each other’s nerves… a lot. But ultimately the Teen Titans have to put their super-insecurities and super-gripes aside and save the world from a next generation of bad guys."

    "With Teen Titans, we wanted to create a new take on the animated superhero series. Teen Titans will be more about what the characters are experiencing and feeling right now, as opposed to being wrapped up in backstory," said Glen Murakami, producer of Teen Titans. "These superheroes don’t have alter egos or secret identities. The show is lighthearted and fun, with new villains, a bold look and exciting action sequences. We think it will have broad appeal - not just to fans of the comic books but also to kids who don’t know who the Teen Titans are."

    SMASH OF THE TITANS
    Written by Richard Ho
    published in WIZARD: THE COMICS MAGAZINE #143

    Supervillains. Teen angst. The occasional zit. These are the challenges facing the young heroes of "Teen Titans," the brand-new animated series that will launch on Cartoon Network on Saturday, July 19.

    (excerpt)

    Once the decision to go with Robin was made, the rest of the roster fell into place. "Because this is the Batman universe, Wonder Girl and Kid Flash were immediately out," explained Register. "And being a fan of the Marv Wolfman/George Pérez [New] Teen Titans, I definitely wanted Beast Boy, Cyborg, Starfire and Raven. We'll introduce some other teenage superheroes from the DC universe in the second season, but these five are the core five."

    ...

    Of course, you can't have ground-shaking action without powerful supervillains - and the Titans are in for epic face-offs against some classic baddies from their comic past, including Dr. Light and arch-nemesis Slade (aka Deathstroke). "You'll see Slade behind the scenes in the beginning, and we slowly reveal him through the first 13 episodes. He's after something that we don't reveal until the final two episodes of the season - and Robin is a big part of it. The season will end with a dramatic Robin vs Slade confrontation.

    Similarly the villains all had to be very clear. No intergalactic Darkseid or netherworld Trigon. "The villains stay local. The world is never in peril," Register said. Indeed such topics may seem scary in the modern world anyway. "You can see that for real on CNN. So, on Cartoon Network we wanted to make the conflict more like your friendly neighborhood Teen Titans."

    The primary villain, who is present in the first 26 episodes of the show, is Slade (known in the comics as Deathstroke, The Terminator). "We stayed away from Deathstroke, The Terminator because it's bad for kids," Register said, laughing. "What's cool about him is, he's sort of the bad Batman."

    Slade will confront the Titans directly in some episodes, where in other he'll dispatch a villain to fight them. Register named some of the other villains.

    The upcoming Teen Titans animated series should have a wide appeal, creators of the show said.

    "I wouldn't say it's like a boys show or a girls show," said producer Glen Murakami. "I wouldn't say it's for little kids or I wouldn't say it's for teenagers. I think everyone's going to like it."

    "You give parents something that they can enjoy with their kids, where they're not sitting there rolling their eyes while some sort of thing with a television in its stomach dances around," said story editor David Slack.

    The show's creators made their comments in a Cartoon Network summer preview tape sent by the network to The Continuum. The series -- which debuts on Cartoon Network on Saturday, July 19 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) -- will air on Cartoon Network as well as Kids' WB!, which was scheduled to air a preview of Teen Titans during its Saturday morning programming.

    "To Cartoon Network's credit, we were asked to do something that you almost never get asked to do in television," Slack said. "We were asked to take risks. Some of the only notes we got were, 'It's not weird enough. Make it cooler.'" Make it something that I haven't seen before."

    Exclusive Teen Titans Live-Action Movie News!
    Wednesday, April 9, 2003 9:57 CDT

    We broke the news six months before Cartoon Network and Kids' WB! made the official announcement that a Teen Titans animated series was coming, now we have the exclusive first word that a writer is on board a live-action film in development as well.

    We're hearing that the screenwriter on the feature film, produced by Akiva Goldsman, is Brad Fulmer, who was an assistant to "The X-Files" creator Chris Carter. Fulmer is said to be on his second draft of the script and it is unclear which Teen Titans teammates may be included in the story.

    DC Comics' "Teen Titans" made their comic book debut in 1964 and soon grew into its own monthly comic book series that ran for many years. It had different incarnations such as "The New Teen Titans" in the '80s and "The New Titans" in the '90s. Characters have included Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, Raven, Changling, Cyborg and Starfire.

    The animates series will debut on Cartoon Network and Kids' WB! this August.

    Just heard through the grapevine - and this is NOT official or even news I've verified (but since when does the internet deal with facts?) - that the Teen Titans animated show, which will be premiering this spring, may have been renewed for a second season! Let's hope that's true. Although I wrote an episode for the first season I really have no idea how the show is going to look once it's been animated. The show, which is anime styled, is aimed at our younger folk, not at the teenage and older audience of the comics, and the characters, though they're based on George and my Titans' heroes and villains, are not quite the same as long-time comic fans will remember. Still, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the people who brought you Batman, Superman and Static Shock will be continuing their high quality.

    'TEEN TITANS' TO DEBUT IN AUGUST ON CARTOON NETWORK
    by Jonah Weiland, Executive Producer
    Posted: March 5, 2003

    Official Press Release

    A new young breed of super-heroes comes to life on Cartoon Network as famed Robin The Boy Wonder leads fellow young teens Cyborg, Beast Boy, Starfire and Raven in the all-new high-adventure series Teen Titans. Slated to debut on Cartoon Network in August 2003, this action-packed half-hour animated series is being produced by Warner Bros. Animation under the guidance of Emmy Award-winner Glen Murakami. Teen Titans is based on the popular DC Comics comic book characters and will air subsequently in the 2003-2004 season on Kids' WB!

    Teen Titans features five teen super-heroes each with special powers, led by Robin The Boy Wonder. This group unites to form a defensive force to protect the Earth from a new generation of villains while coping with the problems of adolescence.

    An eclectic group, their powers complement each other so that when they band together, they become a superb fighting force. Their personalities, on the other hand, often clash. In order to protect Earth from a variety of enemies, these Teen Titans must learn to work and grow as a team despite their differences in style.

    Heading the cast of voice actors on Teen Titans is Scott Menville as Robin The Boy Wonder, the aggressive and acrobatic leader of the group. Greg Cipes provides the voice of Beast Boy, who can take on animal forms, while Starfire, who can channel energy into a powerful weapon, is played by Hynden Walch. Raven, who has psychic powers, is played by Tara Strong and Cyborg, the Teen Titans' half-man/half-machine strongman, is voiced by Khary Payton. Wil Wheaton and Ron Perlman provide voices for guest and recurring roles.

    "Cartoon Network has experienced great success with Justice League, so we know we have a loyal audience ready to embrace this exciting new show," said Jim Samples, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Cartoon Network. "These DC Comics characters have incredible powers, but struggle with how to use them. Teen Titans will mesh perfectly with our other action-adventure programming and thrill our viewers."

    "Teaming up with Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network once again gives us an excellent opportunity to bring our core audience the newest high-adventure series, Teen Titans," said John Hardman, Senior Vice President, Kids' WB! "This series will be a perfect addition to our #1 line-up, as it features superhero action-packed adventures, comedy and kid-relatable characters and stories in this exciting new saga."

    "We are very excited about bringing Teen Titans to life with stunning animation," said Sander Schwartz, President, Warner Bros. Animation. "The opportunity to explore Robin, the classic sidekick of Batman, as well as the other teenage characters of the DC Universe provides a great setting for action-adventure tales for a new generation.

    Kids WB Network Adds Shows
    February 26, 2003

    Teen Titans & Xiaolin Showdown

    The Kids WB, the number one broadcast network in ratings for the youth demographic, announced an ambitious schedule for the rest of 2003. Unlike the other networks, the Kids WB adds new episodes during the summer in order to keep its series fresh. This strategy definitely worked last summer, prepping the way for the WB to dominate youth ratings in the kid "ghettos" of Saturday morning and weekday afternoons during the 2002-2003 season. The Kids WB's rating dominance is largely due to the success of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime, which dominates Saturday morning as the top show for boys 2-11, and kids 2-11. Quite naturally, the WB is planning to add 52 new episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! to its lineup for 2003-2004. Yu-Gi-Oh! will continue to be shown in the prime 4:30 pm daily and 10 am Saturday morning slots.

    In spite of the enormous success of Yu-Gi-Oh!, the Kids WB is only adding one new anime series to its lineup this summer, Megaman: NT Warrior. In the fall the network will add the Warner Brothers-produced Teen Titans series, which will debut first on the Cartoon Network in August and then shift to the WB. The only other new series announced for fall sounds like an anime -- Xiaolin Showdown is its name, and it features a group of monks trained in the ancient art of Shaolin Kung Fu -- but this series is also being produced by Warner Brothers Animation, demonstrating, if only by imitation, anime's growing influence on children's programming here in the states.

The Teen Titans, based loosely on DC's New Teen Titans, but modernized a tinge, will make its debut this August.

    TEEN TITANS ANIMATED UPDATE
    Monday, January 20, 2003
    written by RobAlls@aol.com

    Andrea Romano, voice director of Cartoon Network's Teen Titans, told The Continuum that work on the show is going smoothly and on pace for its August debut.

    "We've got a terrific show," Romano told The Continuum. "There are hopes that we might get another 13 episodes right away."

    Romano said that the last episode of the original 13 will be voice recorded on Friday.

    The main cast of Teen Titans includes Scott Menville as Robin, Tara Strong as Raven, Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Khary Payton as Cyborg and Hynden Walch as Starfire.

    Strong, who was one of the actresses who provided Batgirl's voice, is really the only Teen Titans cast member with extensive experience in this genre.

    "They're terrific, just wonderful to work with," Romano said of the youthful cast. "It's sort of a clean slate. There are no preconceived notions and no one is jaded."

    Romano said that Malcolm McDowell (Metallo on Superman) recorded a guest role two weeks ago.

    The Teen Titans animated series will premiere on Cartoon Network on Friday, May 30 at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).

    It is unclear if the premiere episode will be longer than 30 minutes. The show will feature Robin, Cyborg, Raven, Beast Boy and Starfire.

    Here's how Cartoon Network describes the show, which is produced by Glen Murakami:

    "This group unites to form a defensive force to protect the Earth from a new generation of villains. An eclectic group, their powers complement each other so that when they band together, they become a superb fighting force. Their personalities, on the other hand, often clash. Discovering how to control their powers, these Teen Titans must learn to work and grow as a team while dealing with the trials and tribulations of being teenagers."

    Teen Titans will also air on Kids' WB!.

    LOOKING BACK AND FORWARD WITH LEVITZ
    posted January 06, 2003 01:36 PM
    by Matt Brady

    Continuing Newsarama’s (albeit delayed) tradition of checking in with Marvel and DC for a look back at the past year, and a look ahead, it’s time to talk to DC’s President and Publisher. There’s no song at the end of this one, but a good look at how DC operates and what simple tenet it all comes down to in regards to getting people to come back to comics…

    (excerpt)

    NRAMA: Speaking of Spider-Man a little, but moving back to DC, with the success of Marvel’s movies and other media properties, Marvel has slowly, but enough to be noticeable to fans, moved the comic versions closer to the movie versions of the characters. DC seems to be doing this a little with Teen Titans, in canceling Young Justice to reassemble a Titans team that is in line with the upcoming animated series team; as well as with Smallville, in that Superman’s past has come into play in a handful of recent stories. Is there a level of control exerted over DC by other arms of AOL-TW?

    PL: I think that questions is about three questions rolled up together. Question 1, I think on the narrow specific of the Teen Titans, the relaunch of the comic and the new animated show both look back to Marv and George’s work as an emotional starting point on some level, but boy, do they go off in polar opposite directions. I’m hard pressed to remember an occasion on when we’ve had two more radically different interpretations of one of the properties going at the same time. So I don’t think they’re evidence of a grand plan to make it all follow one set of model sheets.

    The anime-influenced visuals that Glen Murakami came up with for the animated show, and the very kid/bouncy/energetic style that’s being used in the scripts take advantage of a lot of animation is great at that doesn’t always translate well to comics.

    Reported By Comics2Film - Jan 2, 2003:

    Comics2Film recently heard from a credible source who got a look at some of the work that's being done with the Teen Titans animated TV series. This is the same source that accurately informed us back in June that the core team would be composed of Beast Boy (Changeling), Raven, Cyborg, Starfire and Robin. Now, that source is able to tell us who some of the guest characters will be.

    It wouldn't be Teen Titans without Slade Wilson, better known as Deathstroke, The Terminator. This character was introduced in the second issue of the Wolfman/Perez series and became an integral part of the Titans mythos.

    Our source tells us that Wilson will be a key player in the animated show, acting more as a mastermind plotting against the Titans, and occasionally going into action as Deathstroke.

    Fans can also look for an episode centering on the destructive Vietnamese due of Thunder and Lightning. These characters first appeared in the third year of Marv Wolfman and George Perez's New Teen Titans. In that book they were depicted as young men with out-of-control super powers searching for their long-lost father. Eventually their involvement with the Titans allows them to learn the truth about their father and get their powers under control.

    Our source is unsure how much the story adheres to the comic books, but she did say that the show's producers seem to be going for a Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon feel to the episode.

    Our source also revealed that at least one episode will feature frequent Titans foe Dr. Light. No other details about that one are available.

    Redefining a comics universe
    Catching up with Marv Wolfman
    written by George Nelson
    Writer and editor Marv Wolfman influenced DC's mid-80s reboot

    (excerpt)

    Recently, Woflman returned to the Titans characters, writing an episode of the animated series being produced for The WB and Cartoon Network for fall 2003...

    "It's all of my characters, including all the villains, but it's really being aimed for a very different audience," he said. "In comics (which, first of all, you have to be able to read), we aimed the Titans for high-school and college age, and The Cartoon Network and The WB really wanted this version of the Titans aimed at junior high and younger. So it's a very different series, even though it features a lot of the same characters."

    Wolfman had pitched the concept of recasting the criminal scientist Luthor as a ruthless business tycoon when he wrote the Superman feature in Action Comics in the early 1980s. (When that was rejected, Wolfman adapted it using Vandal Savage.) The concept later was adopted for Luthor as part of the 1986 reboot of the Superman titals.

    "If you try to take him on with super-suit or giant robots, you're going to lose - he's Superman," Wolfman observed. "The idea was to use Luthor in such a way that Superman would be helpless to combat him."

    If you liked what George and I (as well as the other artists who followed George) did, then you may like or not like the animated series when it begins next year. I haven't seen any episodes - they haven't been animated yet - so I'm not about to say it's a great show or something less. I have no view over what I haven't seen. As for what I can say in response to the first question above (Why do you Like (sic) the Titans cast for the show?). Well, they're all good actors and were very nice to me, that's why. As for being upset by a change in continuity? C'mon, the kinds of things I did and believed in for the comic could never be done in a cartoon show for little kids. Will the animated show be good? I certainly hope it is. I like the people working on it and I'm certainly open minded enough to wait and see what they do. Even if it turns out that the show is completely different from the stories I wrote for 16 years, it will need to be viewed on its own merits and not whether it is a perfect translation of my deathless prose. Obviously, I'd love to see a show that perfectly reflects everything I did, but even if such a thing happened, I bet whoever wrote the letter above would still have problems with it.

    The show is based on the DC comic George Perez and I created back in 1980 and features many of our characters, villains included. There are changes, of course. While our Titans was written for a teenage and older comic book reader, this show is written for the younger TV audience. Several of our characters have origins that are a little excessive for the Kids WB where it will be shown (along with The Cartoon Network). For instance, in the comic, Raven's mom was raped by an inter-dimensional demon and Starfire was sold into slavery by her father. Not exactly kiddie fare. This show emphasizes action and fun. All the Titans favorites are here: Robin, Beast Boy (I still prefer the name Changeling) Cyborg, Raven and Starfire. I hope people will like the show when it airs sometime next year.

    So here's something unexpected: I did a voice today on this new show called "Teen Titans." The call came on Friday, and here's the cool thing: the director, a wonderful woman named Andrea Romano, who has won seven emmy's called my agent and requested me, based on my work with her last year on "The Zeta Project."

    I did the voice of "Aqualad," and I was told when I left today that they were so happy, I would probably be asked back to do the role again in the next thirteen episodes.

    The episode I did was written by this really nice guy named Marv Wolfman, who co-created and wrote for "Teen Titans" for sixteen years, created "Blade," and was just an all-around cool guy. We spent some time geeking out about comic books today...it just killed me that he was referring to Alan Moore as "Alan."

    Cartoon Network, Kids' WB! Team up for a 'Teen Titans' cartoon, slated to bow in 2003

  • WIZARD: THE COMICS MAGAZINE #136 (Jan 03)
  • Talk about a titanic acquisition.

    Cartoon Network and the Kids' WB! Have teamed up to produce a brand-new, half-hour animated series based on DC Comics' classic comic property, Teen Titans.

    Set to debut sometime in 2003 (premiere date and airing times have yet to be scheduled), "Teen Titans" borrows heavily from the 1980s New Teen Titans era by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez, notably in the cast, which consists of Robin, the Boy Wonder, Cyborg, Starfire, Raven and Beast Boy (a.k.a. Changeling). However, while New Teen Titans often dealt with serious teen issues like drug abuse and runaways, the "Teen Titans" cartoon will have the five heroes banding together in a future era to protect Earth from intergalactic strife and interplanetary battles.

    "I know they made a lot of changes, both visually and conceptually," noted Pérez. "But considering how long I've been away from the book and how many changes have been made since Marv and I worked on the series, the idea that they're giving a little tip of the hat by using the characters that Marv and I created… I'm tickled!"

    Heading up production on "Teen Titans" will be Emmy Award-Winning Producer Glen Murakami, who scored big successes with his work on "Justice League" and "Batman Beyond." "With the animated series being brought to life by Glen Murakami's great team, we look forward to new worlds of creative magic," said DC Comics President/Publisher Paul Levitz.

    For those not familiar with the comic book version of the young heroes who make up the Teen Titans, check out the rundowns of each characters in the call-out captions below!

    CYBORG When Vic Stone was injured in an explosion at S.T.A.R. Labs, his father replaced the ruined parts of his body with cybernetic implants, which gave him super-strength, enhanced speed and a wide variety of special weapons, including lasers, sonic disruptors and advanced computer hardware.

    RAVEN The daughter of an Earth woman and other-dimensional demon, Raven possesses vast empathic and healing powers, can travel inbetween dimensions and has the ability to unleash her "soul-self", which can force an enemy to be overwhelmed by his or her worst fears.

    STARFIRE Koriand'r hails from the proud warrior planet of Tamaran, where all her race can convert solar energy into flight. But when she was kidnapped by the evil Psions their expierments granted her the ability to store untold amounts of energy and unleash devastating blasts!

    BEAST BOY After undergoing an experimental medical treatment to save his life, Gar Logan (also known as the Changeling in the comic series) gained the ability to transform his physical structure into any animal he could imagine.

    ROBIN, THE BOY WONDER Batman's trusted partner and ward, Robin acts as the Teen Titans' leader, utilizing his superb technical training, computer skills and high-flying acrobatics to reach the heights of human protential.

  • SOLUS #1
  • ACTION COMICS #600
  • If JLA/Avengers doesn't provide comics fans with enough of George Pérez in 2003, don't worry - there's more.

    Next year will also see the debut of the new series Pérez is drawing for CrossGen: Solus.

    "The details are still being kept close to the vest. It deals with a globetrotting - globes-trotting, to be more specific - character named Andra," Pérez told CBG at the recent Baltimore Comic-Con.

    "I guess the best way for me to describe it is to be able to do the CrossGen Chronicles that I was doing but with a recurring cast, with a regular cast of characters and a female lead, which I really wanted to do - and work with Barbara Kesel, whom I've known for many years. I'm finally getting a chance to work with her on a regular basis. Basically, I just wanted something that would keep stretching my wings."

    Pérez observed that, when writers and editors discuss putting together "the ideal George Pérez book," it means "they're going to make me work like a dog." However, he acknowledged that he typically does more than the plot requires.

    "If I complain about it, I guess it's the way that inkers complain about working on me: that they do enjoy the craft; it's just that it's a lot of work," he said. "I like rising the challenge. It's very easy to be complacent and just do the things that you're comfortable doing."

    Pérez said he already has completed designs and promotional pieces for Solus and recently received the plot for the first issue. "I even drew a page this morning, so by the end of next week I should be a quarter of the way done with the first issue. The cover is already done," he added. He said he thought it would be scheduled for late February or early March release. "I may be off on that by a month or so. It will come out before JLA/Avengers."

    Pérez also said that, to die it with JLA/Avengers, DC is planning to release a trade paperback covering his run as penciller on Wonder Woman, which he also wrote. He said the trade would cover the series' first 24 issues, possibly the first annual, and the main story from Action #600, on which he collaborated with John Byrne, teaming up Superman and Wonder Woman.

    Through he is not actively involved with the project, Pérez said he was pleased to hear about the Teen Titans cartoon in production for Cartoon Network. The new series features five of the seven characters that appeared in the launch of the New Teen Titans in 1980: Robin and Changeling (called his original name, Beast Boy, in the new animated series) along with the three characters Pérez and writer Marv Wolfman created for the series - Cyborg, Starfire, and Raven.

    "I had absolutely nothing to do with the project itself but I am flattered, to say the least," he said.

    Pérez said he first heard about the series when DC Publisher Paul Levitz called to let him know about it. "I thought that was a real classy thing for him to do. I am - from a financial point of view - very, very tickled about the Titans cartoon and I've been away from it long enough hat I don't get bothered by the changes, since the book itself has gone through so many changes since I've been off it, for a decade now.

    "Other than that, it's a really, really empty looking 2003 for me," he joked.

    Cartoon Network’s Justice League series will get some younger company beginning in 2003, as the network today announced that it will debut an animated Teen Titans series. The team will be made of the Titans of the Wolfman-Perez era with a few modifications, and include Robin, Cyborg, Beast Boy (using his original Doom Patrol-era name which was changed to Changling in the Wolfman-Perez run and later changed back), Starfire and Raven.

    Kid Flash and any young character related to the Wonder Woman mythos apparently will not be members of the team, at least at its beginning.

    The half-hour animated action series is being produced by Warner Bros. Animation under the guidance of Glen Murakami. The series will be rebroadcast on Kids’ WB! following its showing on Cartoon Network.

    (excerpt)

    Finally our inside source said the current line-up for the team is Changeling, Raven, Cyborg, Starfire and Robin. Robin will be the younger, Tim Drake version seen in the latter episodes of the Batman animated shows. However, our source cautions that the show is still in development and plans may change.

    Finally, a source at Weed Road Pictures told C2F that the animated show is not related to their planned live-action Teen Titans feature and one project does not effect the other. Currently Weed Road is seeking a writer for the project.

    As you know, Marv Wolfman and George Pérez created the (new) Teen Titans, so it should be interesting to see how (and if) the animated show will be handled. I'm kind of curious which Starfire costume they're going to use.

    As far as I know, I don't think either Wolfman or Pérez is working on the two above projects.
