Titans Reboot

Over the past year, Warner Bros. Animation has laid off 20% of staff and shuttered several shows. So this must be a great comfort:

The debut of Warner Bros. Animation’s new animated comedy-action series TEEN TITANS GO! on Tuesday, April 23, at 7:30/6:30c on Cartoon Network packed a ratings punch, ranking as the #1 kids program of the day on basic cable among Boys 2-11, 6-11, 9-14 and Male Teens.

It also ranked #1 in its time period among Kids 2-11 & 6-11 as well as Boys 2-11, 6-11, 9-14 and Male Teens, outpacing its timeslot competition on Nickelodeon and DisneyHD by double- and triple-digits among the show’s key demos of Kids 6-11 and Boys 6-11. ...

The show has a more comedic tilt than the original Teen Titans. A couple of months ago, a couple of WBA artists said they preferred the original version, but America seems to be clasping the new show to its capacious bosom.

I'm happy for WBA, but mostly I'm happy for the artists who worked on TT Go!

I tuned in on Tuesday night and was impressed by the show's stylized animation, the vibrant background color pallette, and the consistancy of the original cast's voicework. The story and overall "mood" underwhelmed me a bit, however, as I too preferred the original's darker, (and longer drawn-out) plots.
