Teen Titans Press Kit: Show Description

Fighting for truth, justice and the last piece of pizza, Teen Titans will debut on Cartoon Network Saturday, July 19, at 9 p.m. (ET, PT). A new generation of superheroes comes to life as Robin leads Cyborg, Beast Boy, Starfire and Raven in this all-new, high-adventure series.

Teen Titans features five teenage superheroes each with special powers. The team is led by Robin, the acrobatic and daring group leader with a stocked utility belt and no fear. Beast Boy, small in stature and quick with a joke, can shift into the form of any animal – from a tiger to a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Starfire is new to Earth and naive to its ways, but when it is time for a throwdown, she fights as hard as any of the others. The spooky, deadpan Raven can control inanimate objects with her powerful mental abilities. Hulking Cyborg is half-man, half-machine and the most powerful member of the team.

But Teen Titans is not all about superpowers and bad guys. Like most teens, they love hanging out with their friends, playing video games and going to parties. As adolescents, they are trying to find their place in the world and dealing with their growing pains as well as they can.

The Teen Titans live together in a giant T-shaped tower that’s part high-tech command center and part ultimate teen hangout. There’s every video game console ever created, a weight room, a huge TV – anything a superhero would want. But there are also stacks of dirty dishes in the sink and races to snag the last soda in the refrigerator.

The Teen Titans reside in a sprawling, sunny coastal city. It seems like the perfect playground for teens of any kind – superhero or not – with amusement parks, raves, pristine beaches and beautiful sunsets. But there is also a dark side to this Pacific Coast paradise. It’s the launching pad for a steady stream of criminal conspiracies, alien invasions and world domination schemes. That’s when the Teen Titans put their super-insecurities and super-gripes aside and battle the bad guys.

Teen Titans is being produced by Warner Bros. Animation under the guidance of Emmy Award-winner Glen Murakami. Teen Titans is based on the popular DC Comics comic book characters and will air in 2004 on Kids’ WB!
