The show was a lot of fun for both of us, and part of what I appreciated about it was the complete lack of darkness and angst. Sure, the heroes fought (bad guys and each other), but they didn't delve into the deep, dark recesses of the soul. Even Raven, the resident grump, was much lighter than similar characters on other shows.
Cyborg especially had some serious joie-de-vivre on this show. He loved being a Teen Titan and took friendship seriously, but knew how to have a good time. He and Beast Boy bonded over pizza and videogames, but he took the female characters at face value, too. I always felt like Cyborg would be a good friend to have.
And who could forget his Boo-yah!

It really is cute and fun.Delete
I've never seen Teen Titans, sounds interesting. I think it's great that you have a show that both you and your daughter enjoyed watching together.ReplyDelete

Happy April 4th!
Kids bring all kinds of new things into our lives for sure.Delete
I've never heard of this one before. Who wouldn't like a guy who loves pizza?ReplyDelete
We should introduce him to Michelangelo from TMNT!Delete
My kids watched this show, but I can't say that I did. I did end up watching a lot of cartoons with them when they were younger though.ReplyDelete
There are plenty of things my kids watch that I just can't share with them. But this one, I like.Delete
How fun! I'll have to see about streaming it from somewhere (sadly, not on Netflix...)ReplyDelete
