Animated (?) World of DC Comics: Puppetitans? ("Puppets? Whaat?", Teen Titans Go!, 2014)

Just when you thought the creative cretins behind Teen Titans Go! could sink no lower, along comes the season finale, which premiered on Thursday night.

Of course, the episode as a whole is unavailable, as there are excerpts and the following Cartoon Network promo. Maybe it's just as well.......



The puppets, or, should I say, PuppeTitans, are live marionettes, but the regular cast still provides the voices. I watched about a minute or two of this nonsense, then flipped the channel. Why did I even bother?

Rating: EF (for EPIC FAIL!!!).

Yikes!

I saw another puppet abomination the the form of "Scooby Doo - Map!" It featured a puppet version of the gang (in what looked like the universe of "Pup Named SD") solving a pirate mystery. It was so wrong.

Does WB know what kind of idiots work for them? Oy!

This show is terrible compared to the original 2003 show. Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. Animation needs to STOP raping our childhoods.

Steven: CN prefers to market their shows to younger viewers who probably can't grasp half the humor, if not all of it, really, in these shows. TTG is unfunny, no matter how hard they try.

TTG still needs to die.

Steven, if you or I had any say at CN, and we don't, we could toss this one in the dumpster, and reboot the earlier series so that it actually looked like the 80's comics, and not Americanized anime.

Believe me, those comics looked better than the cartoons did.

What's so bad about the original 2003 Teen titans show being an Americanized anime?

This episode premiered on June 5, 2014 AKA MY 20th birthday.

And maybe now it can be put in the archives where it belongs.

Why does CN prefer to market their shows to younger viewers anyway?

Steven Dolce said...

The episode is called "Puppets, Whaaaaat?", not "Puppetitans".

Thanks, Steven. I've updated the first post.
