Producers Beg Fans to Give Teen Titans Go! a Chance

The animated series debuts on Tuesday, and, if you give it a chance, maybe it won't be as horrible as you thought.

IGN published an interview this weekend with Michael Jelenic and Aaron Horvath, producers of Cartoon Network's Teen Titans Go!, the latest DC animated show debuting on Tuesday. Generally considered to be an affront against all that fandom stands for because it is a short, humorous, continuity-light program aimed at kids instead of a brooding, grim and gritty treatise on DC Universe history aimed at the very lucrative 40 year old basement dweller demographic, Teen Titans Go! has been harshly criticized on the internet. Jelenic and Horvath, however, wish people would just give it a chance. We've taken all of their very real quotes completely out of context to make them sound worse than they actually are.

"We probably said the show was weird six months ago or however long ago that was, but it’s a lot weirder than we initially thought," promised a very casual Jelenic, yawning. "I know that sounds terrible the way I just described it."

One of the biggest complaints about the show is its silly, comedic tone. In the 1980s, Teen Titans was a very serious comic book, and so it should always be exactly like that, forever and ever, obviously. Even so, maybe it won't be too bad if you watch it quickly, like ripping off a band-aid.

"You’re in and out pretty quickly,"* Jelenic insisted, pointing out that the show will only eat up eleven minutes of viewers' lives. "Anything longer would be terrible, anything shorter would be... well, maybe better."

"It’s my hope that people just give it a chance and not just completely write it off," added Horvath, perhaps after realizing Jelenic had pretty much trashed it with his comments.

Read the full interview at IGN. Teen Titans Go! will destroy your precious childhood memories this Tuesday on Cartoon Network.

"C'mon," Jelenic urged. "C'mmmmmooonnnnnnn." (paraphrased)

*Just like with your mom.
