Don't miss it!

The post Review: Teen Titans Go! – The Self-Indulgent 200th Episode Spectacular appeared first on ToonBarn.

It’s finally here! Back on February 25th, we covered the Red Carpet for the Teen Titans Go! 200th Episode and the staff at Warner Bros Animation were happy to have a party to celebrate this amazing milestone. Now, fast forward 9 months and the 200th Episode baby is BORN! The World Premiere of “The Self-Indulgent 200th Episode Spectacular, Parts 1 & 2” is airing on Cartoon Network at 6 PM EST on Friday, November 24th. Don’t miss it!

In this article, we’ll quickly recall our Red Carpet interviews with the voice cast and producers of Teen Titans Go!, we’ll check out some pictures and a clip from the 200th episode, and we’ll give a mostly spoiler-free review of this truly outrageous and totally self-indulgent milestone episode.

If you haven’t already, check out our Red Carpet Interviews taken by ToonBarn Head Writer Marc Morrell back in February, with Tara Strong and her husband Craig, Greg Cipes, Scott Menville, Aaron Horvath, Michael Jelenic, Billy Regan, and Mix Master Mike!

 

It was great to see the cast and crew having fun away from making the show, for a change. You could tell they had been working at an “aggressive rate” to crank out these 200 episodes over the last few years. But, at the hectic schedule they keep, it shouldn’t be too long before we’re celebrating the 300th episode!

This 200th Episode really is Self-Indulgent, as the Teen Titans characters actually come face-to-face with the people who make their show, like the voice cast, producers (and some of the family members of the producers), animators, directors and character designers, and you get to see the Teen Titans try to make their own episode. Hint: they should leave the episode creation to the Producers, Actors and Animators from Warner Bros Animation. Just a suggestion.

Here is a clip from the 200th episode, where the Teen Titans meet their voice counterparts, and it is so surreal to see Beast Boy talk to Greg Cipes, Raven to Tara Strong, Robin to Scott Menville, Starfire to Hynden Walch, and Cyborg to Khary Payton. Incredible!

We love all the inside jokes that are part of this 2-part 200th Episode Spectacular, and the way the actors behave in that clip is no acting. That’s how they really are. Hynden is camera shy, and Tara and Greg are really active on social media, sharing personal pics and videos with their fans.

Producer Pete Michail wrote and sang a new song at the end of the 2nd part, which really drives home the message that they are always “Workin’ on an episode” at Teen Titans Go! and closed it out with Executive Producer, Sam Register.

When you get to see all the people who work on the show in this episode, as well as Michael Jelenic‘s (JellyNeck?) Dad and Aaron Horvath‘s son, and it’s all wrapped up with fart jokes galore, AND you can see references to real things that fans would understand (the picture that used to be the Teen Titans Go! mural on the Warner Bros studio lot), it’s easy to see why they chose this route, instead of looking back on all the characters that have made us laugh through all previous 199 episodes.

It’s been fun to watch Teen Titans Go! and see it’s meteoric rise to the #1 spot on Cartoon Network. We wish them a less aggressive schedule in the future, and maybe some time off once in a while, but please understand that this cast and crew is not by any means replaceable.

I just have a few notes: LOUDER! LOUDER!! LOUDER!!!!!

Exclusive B.E.R. Interview at New York Comic Con! http://www.toonbarn.com/teen-titans-go-2/exclusive-ber-interview-nycc/ http://www.toonbarn.com/teen-titans-go-2/exclusive-ber-interview-nycc/#respond Wed, 18 Oct 2017 14:54:21 +0000 http://www.toonbarn.com/?p=87887 Combine the song with the Teen Titans, CeeLo Green, Fallout Boy, and B.E.R. themselves, all joining forces to stop the tyranny of an evil dragon, all in an animation style that hearkens back to the Heavy Metal days of the early 80s, and you have the makings of a worldwide phenomenon that people will continue to cherish for years to come.

The post Exclusive B.E.R. Interview at New York Comic Con! appeared first on ToonBarn.

Sometimes, the universe opens up and shines its light on something pure and magical. If you’re one of the lucky ones to be able to experience all that the cosmos has to offer, you may have felt the tremor when B.E.R. wrote The Night Begins to Shine, an 80s-style rock anthem that has become a song of hope and inspiration to millions around the world.

You see, the song itself, after it had been written, may have stirred that aforementioned tremor for those that could sense it. However, the song was placed in a music library, and sat for many years, not knowing that a day would come when it could spread its wings and fly.

And it flew… to the highest pinnacle of the heavens… and even alternate dimensions!

Imagine opening the Ark of the Covenant, and instead of releasing a dark evil that creates a scourge over all the land, this song released waves of colored light that poured through the heart of every man, woman and child, and inspired people to strength, creativity and love. That’s what happened when the Producers of Teen Titans Go! (Pete Michail, Aaron Horvath, and Michael Jelenic) opened up the music library and found The Night Begins to Shine by B.E.R. and started using it in their show.

Combine the song with the Teen Titans, CeeLo Green, Fallout Boy, and B.E.R. themselves, all joining forces to stop the tyranny of an evil dragon, all in an animation style that hearkens back to the Heavy Metal days of the early 80s, and you have the makings of a worldwide phenomenon that people will continue to cherish for years to come.

On Billboard’s charts, B.E.R.‘s The Night Begins to Shine bowed at No. 23 on the Hot Rock Songs chart, dated Aug. 26, 2017, as the ranking’s Hot Shot Debut (for the week’s highest new entry), with around two-thirds of its chart points attributed to digital song sales; the track debuts at No. 7 on the Rock Digital Song Sales and Alternative Digital Song Sales charts with 7,000 downloads sold (up 76 percent) in the week ending Aug. 10, according to Nielsen Music.

We have been blessed to make the acquaintance of B.E.R. and we caught up with all 3 of them at New York Comic Con (NYCC).  Here is your chance to meet Carl Burnett (B), Frank Enea (E) and Billy Regan (R) in their new uniforms depicting their characters from Teen Titans Go! Their story is here, for all to enjoy…

In the video, Billy mentions “Walk with Edith”. Edith Clarke is a six-year-old girl who, at 20 months old, was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy Spastic Diplegia. Due to the generous donations of many caring individuals, Edith was able to get a procedure in January 2017 called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy, which helped alleviate the chronic spacticity and pain. Edith now continues to push through her post-op therapy sessions, and she’s been motivated by listening to The Night Begins to Shine.

Here’s Edith, rocking her favorite exercise shirt made specially for her by B.E.R., creators of her favorite pump-up song, The Night Begins to Shine:

As we promised last week, when we announced the Digital HD release of Batman vs Two-Face, and shared our exclusive interviews with William Shatner (Two-Face) and Burt Ward (Robin), this week’s release is on Blu-ray and DVD! AND, we have MORE interviews with Michael Jelenic (writer/producer), Rick Morales (Director), and James Tucker (producer).

Here are those interviews:

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, Batman vs Two-Face finds Batman and Robin back in classic 1960s action, protecting Gotham City from some of the most nefarious villains in comics history. But when the mutilated master of multiplicity, Two-Face, begins staging a daring crime wave across Gotham, the Caped Crusaders must work double-time to discover his mysterious secret identity before they can halt his evil-doing – all the while combating the likes of Catwoman, Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Bookworm, Hugo Strange and King Tut! 
Here’s an all-new clip from the film:

 
In this reviewer’s opinion: “Just like its predecessor, Batman: Return of the Caped CrusadersBatman vs Two-Face is a must see for fans of the classic ’66 Batman series.  The movie is packed with several laugh-out-loud moments and is filled with easter eggs and nods to the series. Burt Ward‘s voice hasn’t changed a bit from the last time we heard the Boy Wonder exclaim ‘Holy (fill in the blank), Batman!’, and hearing Adam West one last time makes the heart melt.  And casting William Shatner as Harvey Dent/Two-Face was a perfect fit to this already star-studded cast!”
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released Batman vs Two-Face to Digital HD on October 10, 2017, and Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on October 17, 2017.

A looming global catastrophe forces Batman and Nightwing to partner with an unlikely hero in Batman and Harley Quinn, the next entry in the popular series of DC Universe Original Movies. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the all-new, feature-length animated film arrived August 15th on Digital and TODAY (August 29) on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD. The Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset comes with an exclusive Harley Quinn figurine.

ToonBarn Head Writer Marc Morrell was able to interview the cast and crew of this film at the World Premiere at San Diego Comic-Con.  The people interviewed included Kevin Conroy (Batman), Loren Lester (Nightwing), Paget Brewster (Poison Ivy), Kevin Michael Richardson (The Floronic Man), Sam Liu (Director), Bruce Timm (Executive Director/Co-Screenwriter), and Jim Krieg (Co-Screenwriter).

Spawned from an original story by animation icon Bruce Timm, Batman and Harley Quinn will be available in several popular formats as the first Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack ($44.98 SRP) release of a DC Universe Original Movie; Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset ($39.99 SRP), featuring an exclusive Harley Quinn figurine; Blu-ray Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP); DVD ($19.98 SRP); and Digital ($19.99 HD, $14.99 SD). The Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in 4K with HDR and a Blu-ray disc featuring the film; the Blu-ray Combo Pack features the film in hi-definition; and the DVD features the movie in standard definition. The Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Combo Pack include a digital version of the film.  

In Batman and Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue (a.k.a. The Floronic Man) embark on an ecological quest to save the planet – and, unfortunately, eliminate most of humankind along the way. To save humanity, Batman and Nightwing are forced to enlist Harley Quinn to catch Poison Ivy, Harley’s BFF and frequent partner-in-crime. But Batman’s patience is put to the test by the unpredictable and untrustworthy Harley during the twists and turns the reluctant companions face during their bumpy road trip. The result is a thrill ride of action, adventure and comedy no Batman fan has seen before.

The latest DC animated film features a stellar voice cast led by Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) reprising his role as the Dark Knight, alongside Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory) making her debut as the irrepressible Harley Quinn. And we have to say, Melissa Rauch shows a tremendous range of emotions as Harley in this one, and her performance was outstanding! Loren Lester, the voice of Robin in Batman: The Animated Series, returns as Nightwing. Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) and Kevin Michael Richardson (The Cleveland Show) provide the voices of the villainous duo Poison Ivy & Jason Woodrue, respectively.

Sam Liu (Batman: The Killing Joke) directed from an original story by Bruce Timm (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) with a teleplay written by Timm & Jim Krieg (Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox). Co-Producer is Alan Burnett (The Batman). Executive Producers are Sam Register and Bruce Timm. Benjamin Melniker and Michael Uslan are Executive Producers.

“In this all-new movie, we give Harley Quinn the starring role she deserves as she partners with Batman and Nightwing to save the day,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “We are thrilled to showcase the latest story from the remarkable mind of Bruce Timm for all fans to enjoy.”

Batman and Harley Quinn boasts enhanced content including multiple featurettes and sneak peeks into what is next for the DC Universe.

Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment bring together two of pop culture’s all-time heroes – TV’s original Batman and Captain Kirk, Adam West and William Shatner, respectively – to voice the title characters in the full-length, animated feature film, Batman vs. Two-Face. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will make the all-new movie available October 10, 2017 on Digital and October 17, 2017 on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP) and DVD ($19.98 SRP).

As the sequel to the 2016 hit animated film Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, the all-new Batman vs. Two-Face finds Batman and Robin back in classic 1960s action, protecting Gotham City from some of the most nefarious villains in comics history. But when the mutilated master of multiplicity, Two-Face, begins staging a daring crime wave across Gotham, the Caped Crusaders must work double-time to discover his mysterious secret identity before they can halt his evil-doing – all the while combating the likes of Catwoman, Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Bookworm, Hugo Strange and King Tut!

The late Adam West leads the star-studded cast in his final performance as Batman. The beloved actor delivers an inspired turn opposite fellow pop culture icon William Shatner (Star Trek) as the criminally conflicted Harvey Dent/Two-Face. This is only the second production of any kind to feature the two titans of the fanboy realm together. West and Shatner first teamed in the 1963 “Alexander The Great” television series that never made it past the pilot.

The cast also boasts two more pop culture icons of the 1960s. Burt Ward is back for more “holy” fun as the Boy Wonder himself, Robin, and Tony Award winner Julie Newmar reprises her role as the fiendish feline, Catwoman.

The voice cast includes Jeff Bergman (Joker, Bookworm, Desmond Dumas), Sirena Irwin (Dr. Quinzel), Thomas Lennon (Chief O’Hara), Lee Meriwether (Lucilee Diamond), William Salyers (Penguin), Lynne Marie Stewart (Aunt Harriet), Jim Ward (Hugo Strange, Commissioner Gordon), Steven Weber (Alfred, Two-Face henchmen) and Wally Wingert (Riddler, King Tut).

The core Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders filmmaking team reprises their roles for Batman vs. Two-FaceRick Morales (LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Cosmic Clash) directs from a script by Michael Jelenic (Teen Titans Go!) and James Tucker (Teen Titans: The Judas Contract). Tucker and Jelenic are also Supervising Producer and Producer, respectively. Sam Register is Executive Producer. Benjamin Melniker and Michael Uslan are Executive Producers.

Batman vs. Two-Face is a must-have for all Batman fans featuring a cavalcade of his foes, and an amazing cast including two giants of pop culture, Adam West and William Shatner,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is excited to bring these beloved characters to animated life, and proud to have been associated with an actor as impressive, gracious and entertaining as Adam West. We salute his extensive contributions to the legacy of the character, and we are greatly appreciative of his cooperation and support in bringing this animated film to fruition. He will be greatly missed.”

Special Features for Batman vs. Two-Face include:

  • “The Wonderful World of Burt Ward” (featurette) – Spotlighting Burt Ward’s life away from acting – particularly his many benevolent activities, and his lifelong devotion to the health and welfare of dogs.
  • Adam West Tribute Panel/2017 Comic-Con International 2017 – At the 2017 Comic-Con International in San Diego, a panel celebrated the life and times of the late Adam West, the legendary “Bright Knight.” Fans laughed, cried and cheered as actress Lee Meriwether (Catwoman from the 1966 Batman movie), director/writer/actor Kevin Smith, actor/radio personality Ralph Garman, producer James Tucker and moderator Gary Miereanu captivated the audience with anecdotes and tales about Adam West.
  • Actors Burt Ward and Julie Newmar discussing various aspects of their lives, ambitions and inspirations.

LEGO® Scooby-Doo! Blowout Beach Bash comes out on DVD today and is already available on Digital Download. So, if you think for any reason you should stop reading after that first sentence because you already have seen all there is to see about this story, you don’t know the half of it. It just so happens that some of the cast and crew of LEGO® Scooby-Doo! Blowout Beach Bash were available for interviews at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) this past Sunday, including the voice of Shaggy, Matthew Lillard.

Matthew Lillard has been playing Shaggy for many, many years in live-action Scooby Doo films, as well as animated and LEGO animated versions of Scooby Doo. This man knows this character through and through, and has seen and done it all as Shaggy. Last year, at the Scooby Doo and WWE panel, Matthew Lillard was put into a wrestling move he couldn’t escape by 2-Time WWE Divas Champion Paige. So, when we went to SDCC to interview Matthew Lillard, we knew anything could happen, but we never anticipated this:

Mystery, Inc. heads to Blowout Beach for a real swinging beach party, but when the Ghost Pirates threaten to crush the good vibes, it’s up to Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma to get the party back on track and save the day!

People who attended SDCC last Sunday were amongst the first audience to see this all-new LEGO/Scooby-Doo movie, then stayed for a fun-filled panel featuring actors Matthew Lillard (Twin Peaks, The Bridge) and Grey Griffin (The Adventures of Bill & Mandy), the voices of Shaggy & Daphne, respectively, alongside producer Rick Morales and director Ethan Spaulding. TV Guide Magazine senior writer Damian Holbrook moderated the hijinks. LEGO® Scooby-Doo! Blowout Beach Bash is available today, July 25, 2017 on DVD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

We’ll be there to cover the red carpet interviews and the World Premiere, which will be followed by a Q&A Panel with the cast and crew from the film.

A looming global catastrophe forces Batman and Nightwing to partner with an unlikely hero in Batman and Harley Quinn, the next entry in the popular series of DC Universe Original Movies. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the all-new, feature-length animated film arrives August 15 on Digital and August 29 on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD.

Spawned from an original story by animation icon Bruce Timm, Batman and Harley Quinn will be available in several popular formats as the first Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack ($44.98 SRP) release of a DC Universe Original Movie; Blu-ray Deluxe Giftset ($39.99 SRP), featuring an exclusive Harley Quinn figurine; Blu-ray Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP); DVD ($19.98 SRP); and Digital ($19.99 HD, $14.99 SD).

The Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Combo Pack include a digital version of the film.

In Batman and Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Jason Woodrue (a.k.a. The Floronic Man) embark on an ecological quest to save the planet – and, unfortunately, eliminate most of humankind along the way. To save humanity, Batman and Nightwing are forced to enlist Harley Quinn to catch Poison Ivy, Harley’s BFF and frequent partner-in-crime. But Batman’s patience is put to the test by the unpredictable and untrustworthy Harley during the twists and turns the reluctant companions face during their bumpy road trip. The result is a thrill ride of action, adventure and comedy no Batman fan has seen before.

The latest DC animated film features a stellar voice cast led by Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) reprising his role as the Dark Knight, alongside Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory) making her debut as the irrepressible Harley Quinn. Loren Lester, the voice of Robin in Batman: The Animated Series, returns as Nightwing. Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) and Kevin Michael Richardson (The Cleveland Show) provide the voices of the villainous duo Poison Ivy & Jason Woodrue, respectively.

Sam Liu (Batman: The Killing Joke) directed from an original story by Bruce Timm (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns) with a teleplay written by Timm & Jim Krieg (Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox). Co-Producer is Alan Burnett (The Batman). Executive Producers are Sam Register and Bruce Timm. Benjamin Melniker and Michael Uslan are Executive Producers.

“In this all-new movie, we give Harley Quinn the starring role she deserves as she partners with Batman and Nightwing to save the day,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “We are thrilled to showcase the latest story from the remarkable mind of Bruce Timm for all fans to enjoy.”

Justice League Action has brought the Superfriends back to rejuvenate Saturday Morning cartoons to the luster they once had back in the day. This Cartoon Network series, which airs every Saturday Morning at 7:30 AM EDT, brings you 2 episodes in that half-hour time slot.

With every episode being 11 minutes long each, there is not much time to develop a sizable story, hence the name, “Action”. So, hang on to your hats, because you accelerate right out of the gates, and fly straight through to the end of every episode. With the amount of superhero and villain characters to choose from in the DC Universe, there’s no telling who’ll be featured in the next episode. Between superheroes, villains and secret identities, there’s already been about 130 characters in only roughly 30 episodes.

Oh, and here’s the best part: Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill have teamed up once again to voice the characters a great many people consider to be the best at performing, namely Batman and Joker, respectively. Mark Hamill also puts his own spin on Swamp Thing and Trickster.

ToonBarn’s Marc Morrell went to WonderCon to get interviews with several of the people involved in the making of this great DC cartoon series. Below, you will see interviews with Jason J. Lewis (Superman), Rachel Kimsey (Wonder Woman), P.J. Byrne (Firestorm), Jim Krieg (Producer), Butch Lukic (Producer), and Wes Gleason (Voice Director). One thing we can tell you is that all of these people are excited to bring this series to the fans, as there is no limit to where these episodes can go! Enjoy!
