New series on Cartoon Network, they took Teen Titans into the quarter-hour comedy series realm. And they turned Raven into a Brony.

I enjoyed the first episode. And it comes on right after I get home from work and already planned on watching the Looney Toons Show, so it's all part of the same relaxing after work hour of TV.

Personalities (and voice actors, I believe) are the same as the previous, more serious, animated show. Except the personalities have been exaggerated. Starfire has that alien/mutant silk worm from one of the previous series's episodes as a pet that she keeps in the tower. In the first episode they go on a quest to gather ingredients for an epic sandwich. Second episode is about Beast Boy and Cyborg, and pie.

Tara Strong playing with herself, and Starfire's Hair Pie were the most notable jokes. I've seen clips of the next episode, and they look amusing as well.

Oh, my opinion. One episode in so not much to say. I enjoyed it. Well colored, decently animated, decently written with some subtle and not so subtle jokes (like all the DC character Easter Eggs), and the original Teen Titan cartoon voice actors. I'll watch it next week, and probably the week after before deciding whether to drop it or not. It was remarkably cute, though, especially Raven and Starfire. Robin's mission was the most amusing of the first part, and so many Pie Innuendos in the second.

I don't recall Tara being in the first episode? Must have missed something.

Tara is Raven's voice.

Oh, pff... I thought you were talking about uh, Beast Boy's little girlfriend. I couldn't remember her name, and "Strong" just fit as a last name for an Earth controller. Silly me.

Ya, I knew her name was after "Terra" being earth, but I had never seen it written out and assumed they wouldn't go directly Terra. I don't read comics, so I haven't been exposed to the characters previously.

Oh my.
Well if you did want some, and it looks like you would have to get them shipped to you, Midtown Comics is the site I use. Someday I will go to their store...someday...

Midtown Comics is pretty big shop. I sneak in Sundays and sneak out.

Anyway, episode 2 (or 3 and 4, depending on how you're keeping count) and I enjoyed it. Not a "I laughed the entire time" kind of deal, but I found myself chuckling often enough, and smiling throughout. I'll be TiVoing it and watching when I can. Cyborg really won the episode. Baby Cyborg and Puppy Hand Cyborg got me pretty good.

And an honorable mention to Robin for the little dance he was doing while waiting on Ed, and how happy he was when he turned into RoBane.

Baby Cyborg was good. Raven Telekinesising Silkie out the window of the tower was pretty funny too. I was disappointed by there not being a Starfire baby flashback.

Also, Beast Boy having the power to turn into anything, and the first thing he does is turn into something Raven will put her lips on...

Edit:
I did notice that the cable box listed the episode as "Raven's Daddy Dearest" but the episode itself labelled the episode as "Dog Hand".
