Teen Titans Go! Rebooted Already?

A month after it was initially announced, DC's new animated Teen Titans Go! is already being rebooted!

Fans of 2003's Teen Titans animated series on Cartoon Network were thrilled to learn last month that the series was to be revived as Teen Titans Go!. The original voice actors, who had already been revising their roles in a series of shorts for the DC Nation programming block on Cartoon Network, are slated to return for the new series, which feature the Titans characters in "chibi" form, a japanese term that means "little rapist." The tone of the show is to be lighter in nature and more comedic than the original series.

As it turns out, however, DC, which is unable to go more than a month without rebooting one of their universes, is going to great lengths to point out that Teen Titans Go! is NOT a continuation of the original series. In an article on mega-website IGN, Titans producer Michael Jelenic spoke about the reboot:

"We're terrified of what the hardcore fan base is going to think. There's no continuity. In fact, the marching orders were this is not that series. We're not linking up. Even if we tried, our tone is so different it wouldn't match up."

Jelenic was escorted by Secret Service directly from the stage at San Diego Comic Con following those statements into a fortified underground bunker while the threat of enraged fanboys is assessed. The most likely scenario is that they stay in their mom's basements and complain rudely in places such as the comments section of this article, but it is always a possibility that one will dress in a chiba Raven costume and harrass Jelenic at future appearances, which nobody wants to see.

Last year, DC rebooted its comics universe as part of an intiative to increase sales and attract new readers by simplifying continuity and eliminating all traces of Stephanie Brown, Cassandra Cain, and Wally West from existence, a move which has so far proven successful, showing that nobody cares about those characters.

Teen Titans Go!, which will run two 11 minute stories per episode, is due to hit the DC Nation cartoon block in 2013.
