The Teen Titans: The Complete Series release is a great set especially if you didn’t already own the individual releases, plus it saves a small amount of shelf space for those lacking it.

THE MOVIE — 4.5/5

Series Synopsis: Leading the Teen Titans to protect Earth is Robin (SCOTT MENVILLE), formerly Batman’s sidekick. He has no special powers, just a utility belt and his mind to help solve problems. His team members, Starfire (HYNDEN WALCH), Raven (TARA STRONG), Cyborg (KHARY PAYTON) and Beast Boy (GREG CIPER), live together in Titans Tower, situated in the West Coast haven Jump City. Each of them possesses unique abilities to help fight a new generation of villains ranging from super-powered hooligans to would-be world conquerors, including arch nemesis Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke (RON PERLMAN).

Quick Hit Review: Although Teen Titans doesn’t hold much of a special place in my heart compared to others (my time for animated shows of this type was Batman: The Animated Series and to lesser extents, Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League), however revisiting this show after so many years and it’s an incredible series with an amazing animation style to it and wonderful voice acting all around.

Beyond those things, the storytelling was equally impressive with not many episodes that didn’t work, however probably the highlight across the show’s five seasons was whenever Slade Wilson a.k.a. Deathstoke made an appearance, perfectly voiced by the amazing Ron Perlman (and honestly, would make a terrific live action version). Alongside Perlman, the show also featured a solid roster of guest appearances such as Malcolm McDowell, Clancy Brown, Thomas Haden Church, Keith David and Virginia Madsen.

Teen Titans certainly shaped the childhoods of many DC fans and while I had kind of given up on animated television series following the conclusion of Justice League Unlimited (its final year did overlap with TT first year), watching this today and it still holds up so well and meets, and even beats, some of these DC animated movies (and was fun seeing their appearance in the recently released Teen Titans Go vs. Teen Titans movie).



This 6-disc Complete Series release of Teen Titans comes via the Warner Archive Collection and also includes Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo Original Movie (making its Blu-ray debut in this set).

Season One:
Finding Their Voices: The Secret Information Behind Making Teen Titans (7:52) is a featurette on developing the story and characters and on casting the voices.

Comic Creations (21:55) looks at the history behind the “Teen Titans” comic book and taking elements and applying the source material in animated form.

Music Video (3:31) for the theme song by Puffy AmiYumi.

Also included is a Sneak Peek at “Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi” TV Show (0:38), an Interview/Featurette (13:15) with Puffy AmiYumi and Bonus Cartoons for “Toon Topia”.

Season Two:
Catching Up with Teen Titans (4:58) is basically a clips show for the entire season…

Season Three:
Know Your Foes (14:54) are biographies on the Teen Titans enemies in this third season, including Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke voiced by Ron Perlman.

Season Four:
Know Your Foes (14:52) is more of the same, just focusing on the foes for the fourth season.

Season Five:
Teen Titans: Friends and Foes (25:11) profiles both allies and enemies for the Titans.

Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo:
The Lost Episode (12:04) — This episode was originally shown on and was part of an online campaign to promote Teen Titans.


VIDEO – 4.5/5

Teen Titans arrives on Blu-ray together through the Warner Brother Archive Collection, presented in the original 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer on every episode. As I mentioned, the discs appear to be exactly the same as the individual releases, but even so, colors are incredibly bright and vibrant and even though there is some banding, this still is a really good looking series.

AUDIO – 4.0/5

Each episode comes with a DTS-HD Master Audio Stereo track and considering this was a Saturday morning cartoon series, this doesn’t sound half bad. Dialogue of course, given its recorded in a booth, came through with good clarity and any of the action sequences provided some decent amount of depth.


OVERALL – 4.0/5

The Teen Titans: The Complete Series release is a great set especially if you didn’t already own the individual releases, plus it saves a small amount of shelf space for those lacking it. The features are all okay but nothing especially noteworthy and it would have been nice to get some new commentaries, however the inclusion of Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo in HD might be worth the upgrade.
