Teen Titans Go! is an American animated TV superhero sitcom produced by Warner Bros. Animation for Cartoon Network. It has been on the air since April 23, 2013, with over 300 episodes across eight seasons, along with three films, which individually, have been released theatrically, direct-to-video, and television. It is a spin-off to the 2003 Teen Titans animated TV series, which was decidedly more dramatic in comparison, despite itself having a slight comedic edge than the DC comics it was based on.

In Teen Titans Go!, we see what happens to the Teen Titans (Beast Boy, Raven, Starfire, Cyborg, and their leader Robin) when they're not saving the day. The team's members are usually involved in juvenile antics that lead into something much bigger than anticipated.

The series isn't above poking fun at itself, but the jokes are usually written out of obvious irritation from any negative online reaction by viewers, channeled through either the Teen Titans themselves or Control Freak, one of their foes who acts as the voice of the "haters" (despite the fact these "haters" are older viewers and not the younger target audience); a prime example of this occurred in the episode "Cartoon Feud."

Although criticized for its humor, Teen Titans Go! was a ratings hit since it first aired, and as a result of this, Cartoon Network at one point had filled up almost all of its daily hours with nothing but Teen Titans Go!, which incidentally continued the cycle of hate between those who both watch the series and make the series. Despite this, the show's ratings slowed during its run, resulting its airtime to become more sporadic as the network shifted its schedule and switched programs.

As part of the 100th anniversary of Warner Bros., many of its intellectual properties (including those from Hanna-Barbera) appeared in the show's special episode for its parent company, which premiered as part of season 8 on October 14, 2023.
