Teen Titans changed all the rules. Before Teen Titans debuted in 2003, American superhero cartoons were either played completely straight or completely silly.

The other day the phone rang, but I let the answering machine get it. The “caller,” it turned out, was an automated system from one of the big box stores. Their machine and our machine spent a merry few minutes trying to talk to each other, what with the one badgering the other to press […]
