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!!” moments.
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.
