Exclusive! ToonBarn readers are getting a special treat today, because Teen Titans Go! celebrated 200 Episodes last weekend at the Arts District Brewery in Los Angeles, California, which included red carpet interviews with cast and crew.
The whole Warner Bros Animation and Cartoon Network Teen Titans Go! crew were there, including Sam Register (Warner Bros Animation President), Rob Sorcher (Cartoon Network Chief Content Officer), Aaron Horvath (Producer), Michael Jelenic (Producer), Pete Michal (Producer), Hynden Walsh (Starfire), Scott Menville (Robin), Tara Strong (Raven), Greg Cipes (Beast Boy), Mix Master Mike (Re-mixed Teen Titans Go! theme song), Billy Reagan (one of 3 songwriters for “The Night Begins to Shine”), and hundreds more people who have contributed to all 200 episodes of Teen Titans Go! on Cartoon Network.
In this first video, you’ll see the voice actors for 3 of the 5 titans, namely, Scott Menville (Robin), Tara Strong (Raven) and her husband, Craig, and finally, Greg Cipes (Beast Boy). We even threw in some footage from the show to provide context around some of the things mentioned in the interviews. Enjoy these exclusive interviews you won’t find anywhere else:
In this second video, you’ll see a surprise interview with Mix Master Mike (yes, from Beastie Boys!), who re-mixed the original theme song to the current one you see at the beginning of every episode on Cartoon Network. Another surprise interview is Billy Reagan, the singer and one of the writers for “The Night Begins to Shine“, which was featured on the Teen Titans GO! episode, “40%, 40%, 20%”. Plus, you’ll see interviews with Teen Titans Go! Producers Michael Jelenic and Aaron Horvath. Michael gives a hint about what we can expect to see in the actual 200th episode, which might not appear on Cartoon Network until Fall 2017. Aaron lets us know what might be featured in a Teen Titans Go! panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Again, this is an exclusive interview you won’t see anywhere else:
Congratulations to everyone at Warner Bros Animation, who work hard every day to keep churning out episode after episode of Teen Titans Go! for all the fans who love to watch it on Cartoon Network! Hopefully, we’ll be back to capture all the festivities when Teen Titans Go! celebrates 300, 400, and 500 episodes.
