Note: This episode was
available online through
Postopia.com via a special cereal box code. Available in various video formats, the
episode featured full animation (by Lotto and Dongwoo) and voice cast and
ran 12 minutes, 3 seconds (with intro and credits).
For a short little episode free from a box of
cereal or something, this wasn’t bad at all. It looks, acts and sounds like
a typical episode of Teen Titans, and doesn’t feel cheap, forced or even
dumbed down for the kiddies at all. Again, just like an episode of Teen
Titans, just shorter. There aren’t even any “Hey kids, buy this cereal!!”
Despite the fact the main character is Beast Boy the episode was cool. I
find Beast Boy to be the typical cartoon comedy relief. You know, the one
you’d really like to slap and then contemplate whether or not to kick him
whilst he’s down. He was typically annoying the other Teen Titans, which
seems to happen in every Beast Boy episode, but eh, it didn’t have time to
really start annoy anyone.
The highlight of the episode, as usual, is the fight scene. The fight
chorography in this show is simply amazing. Whilst it’s nowhere near the
level of my favorite fight scene from Apprentice, Part 1, the one that Robin
starts whooping Slade’s robots ass.
The villain wasn’t exceptionally brilliant. He just wanted people to listen
to his loud annoying music. If he had a full episode, I’m sure he would’ve
been more interesting. I don’t think I’d want to see him again, however.
Not a bad deal overall, delicious cereal and a half decent episode of Teen
Titans. I hope a similar promotion is carried out again soon.
