So much MORE than fight scenes!!!

I don’t know what CommonSense is talking about saying this show is only about the fight scenes, sure there are a lot of them, it is a show about super heros after all, but Teen Titans tackles a lot of important topics! I would say this show is all about morality and life lessons with a side of fight scenes to keep you entertained. Like the episode where they address racism, or the one where they address disabilities when Cyborg tells a kid with a prosthetic arm that having the prosthetic doesn’t matter, what’s important is what’s attached to the prosthetic (the boy himself). There is the episode all about inner beauty and accepting people for who they are. The episode about understanding others and respecting how they handle their emotions (I.e. being exuberant with your emotions, Starfire, and keeping a tight lid on emotions, Raven). Respecting others choices “I respect that you don’t eat meat, please respect that I don’t eat fake meat”~Raven. They talk about animal cruelty, the importance of friendship, anger issues, accepting and overcoming your fears, the dangers of being over competitive, not taking practical jokes too far, the list goes on. I could probably go down the episode list and tell you the life lesson taught in each. Honestly when my niece started watching Teen Titans Go! We got two episodes in before I immediately turned off that moral garbage (legit we watched an episode where Starfire turned herself into a villain because she thought it would make Robin happy after Spade was defeated, and he thanked her for it and did nothing to get her to be herself just went along with it. Like seriously where is the strong female hero? That is not behavior I want my niece to think is acceptable!). I turned the original Teen Titans on for her so she can actually learn some valuable lessons. I agree that this show is not for younger kids but it is one of the best kids shows I’ve seen that tackles a lot of very serious and important topics with a host of fantastic role models! Shoutout to Bumblebee who legit is one of the strongest females “there’s not a man alive that can tell me what to do”
