"Classic Titans" is the thirty-third episode of the fourth season of Teen Titans Go!, and the one-hundred-ninetieth overall episode of the series.


Control Freak attempts to prove his point about classic superhero cartoons by sending the Titans to a former version of Teen Titans Go!.





  • This episode aired one year after "Oregon Trail".
  • Starfire's New Teen Titans comic outfit was slightly modified in this episode, due to her original outfit design being far too revealing.
    • Her modified outfit in this episode is more likely based on her outfit from the 1984 New Teen Titans anti-drug commercial. Her original comic outfit there was also modified due to the fact the commercial was aimed at children and young teens.
  • Judging by the title of this episode, most people thought that the episode was going to be a crossover between Teen Titans Go! and the original Teen Titans series from 2003. After discovering that they have misinterpreted it, many were left very disappointed.
  • Although the Titans' designs are more from the 80s, the look and feel of the animation are reminiscent of the 1967 Filmation DC hero cartoons (Justice League of America, Teen Titans, etc).
    • Ads for this episode show a "title card" with the phrase "Copylike 1967, Cartoon Network" at the bottom, parodying the word "copyright".
    • To fully embrace the style of 1960s Filmation cartoons (which included mistakes), intentional errors were added: Robin talking but with Cyborg's voice; Cyborg's head cybernetics on the wrong side; jail bars popping on mid-scene; Cyborg's armor pieces switching colors with his skin tone; film cell visible; and seeing the end of Cyborg's extended neck.


  • This is the third time the Titans' New Teen Titans comic counterparts are referenced. The first time, they were briefly referenced in a comic book in the episode "Books," and in "Baby Hands" when the Titans were seen in a flashback wearing costumes that were very similar to what their New Teen Titans comic counterparts wore.
    • Starfire's New Teen Titans comic counterpart is the only one who had that specific counterpart referenced four times, since it was also referenced in "Beast Man", when Robin got a tattoo of Starfire on his stomach that looked very similar to her New Teen Titans comic design.
  • Raven is seen unhooded for the 64th time in the series.


  • The "classic" version of the Titans this episode is referencing Marv Wolfman and George Perez's New Teen Titans comic series from the 1980s.
  • The cartoon the Titans are watching, Babies vs Dogs, is a parody of Teen Titans Go! in many ways.
    • When Control Freak is pointing out all the flaws about Babies vs Dogs, he complains about how bright the colors were and how they only make jokes. This could be a reference to people in real life, who often complain about these things in Teen Titans Go!
    • At the end of the episode, it's made apparent that the Titans have been watching an all day marathon of Babies vs Dogs. This could be referencing the many times that there have been all day marathons of Teen Titans Go! on Cartoon Network, which also happens to be a major complaint of the show's critics.


  • The show that the Titans are watching is called Babies vs Dogs, though there is only one baby and one dog present in the program.
    • They also seem to be working as a team, not as enemies like the title suggests.
  • When Control Freak is commenting on the animation and style of the baby and the dog towards the end, he is referring to them in a plural sense ("those dogs," "those babies"). It's plausible that when the lines were recorded for the episode, the production team was planning on having more babies and dogs fighting, but only had time to make the two that appeared.

Running Gags

  • Robin using various birdarangs, each time done with similar animation cycles.
  • Beast Boy transforming into a donkey.
