Bad Qualities

  1. Its spin-off, Teen Titans Go!.

  3. Characters can be idiots at some parts.
  4. Warner Bros cancelled for no reason.
  5. The last episode was not well received from fans.

Reception

Teen Titans was one of Cartoon Network's best shows, with its animation style and character development. It spawned its own comic book series, feature film and video games. Even after its cancellation, fans still seek a sixth season.

Trivia

  • Usually when the theme song is played in Japanese, it usually means a more comical episode than serious.
