Story #1 features the Titans in a battle of the bands against Punk Rocket, whose musical tastes fill that tiny void between racket electronic feedback. Is the victor in doubt? Well, SURE – when Robin is jammin’ to his flute. (I never was a Jethro Tull fan).
Story #2 is that time-honored teen tradition featured in countless John Hughes movies – the prom. It’s all Starfire’s idea, but getting the others to go along requires a blend of peer pressure (another time-honored teen tradition), feminine wiles, and blackmail.
It’s good to see Teen Titans Go! is not limited to a simple corner of the DCU. References are made to HIVE and Speedy, suggesting there’s a whole other animé universe fans of the show have yet to see. And that’s okay; I’d just as soon it stay that way.
