Driver's Ed is Teen Titans Go! Season 1, Episode 2a, and the third overall episode of the series.

Summary

Robin gets his driver's license suspended after wrecking the Batmobile and must take a Driver’s Ed course. What Robin doesn’t know is that his driving instructor, Ed, is a robber and that has some sinister tricks up his sleeve where he uses Robin as a getaway driver.

Plot

Robin tricks the others to drive him around town for his selfish needs by telling them it's an emergency, causing Beast Boy to lose his game, Cyborg to lose some of his data, Silkie to get swollen up and a demon getting away. Robin needs someone to drive him around town but no one wants to take him to places. He tells the others that his license is suspended after he wrecked the Batmobile. He also tells them he met a guy on the Internet that can get his license back. Cyborg, because of his data loss, doesn't recognize Starfire. Raven warns Robin that she does not think this is a good idea.

Robin goes where his instructor told him to meet. In the car window there was a paper that said to start the engine. A man exits a bank that was robbed with a bag of money, puts the bag in the trunk and gets in the car. He introduces himself as Ed and his instructor. Ed gives many deductions to Robin during his test, causing him to fail. Robin takes the test again multiple times, but ultimately fails. One day, the Titans are at a cafe and notice Robin in front of a jewelry store when he was supposed to meet his Driver's Ed instructor. Ed robs the store and gets in the car. Raven tells the others that he is his getaway driver. Starfire tells the others that Robin must not know that he is. They decide to chase Robin to warn him about Ed. Robin notices them, but thinks that they are going to make fun of him, so he speeds away from him. Later, after a wild chase (with Cyborg at the wheel of the T-Car), Robin stops the car and Ed gets mad at him for his wild driving and tells him the truth, and tells him the reason he kept failing Robin is to keep him as a getaway driver. He also said he never wanted him as a getaway driver again. Robin tells Ed he knew, and that is why he didn't tell him about the Demon that is behind him. The Demon drags Ed into its dimension and all is back to normal as Robin celebrates his success for passing the driving test.

Characters

Running Gags

  • The demon Raven failed to defeat keeps randomly showing up.
  • Cyborg can't recognize Starfire, and always asks who she is.
  • The same cop keeps blindly shooting at Ed's getaway car.

Trivia

  • When Robin met Ed at the casino a sign said Mumbo Jumbo was going to perform that day.
  • In a four-day period, Robin annoyed his friends by making them drive him to so-called "emergencies":
    • Beast Boy took him to Burger Splode! for a monstrous appetite for a cheeseburger, fries, a milkshake, and a small side salad.
      • Although Beast Boy drove Robin to Burger Splode, Cyborg never allowed Beast Boy to drive the T-car in the original series. In fact none of the other Titans in the real series drove the vehicle, hinting it was Cyborg's personal ride despite being named the "T-car". In Teen Titans Go, all Titans have driver licenses and since Cyborg doesn't have an obsession over the T-car, he allows the other titans to drive it, though he's usually the principle driver. 
    • Cyborg took him to Game Bear to get a copy of Dog Simulator 2000 (a parody of the Microsoft Simulator series).
    • Starfire took him to the Cave where Aqualad (Kaldur'ahm) is the DJ for the night.
    • Raven took him to the beach so he could surf.
      • Raven is also revealed to be able to drive without using her hands.
  • It is revealed that Robin's mask is actually a pair of glasses and he has tiny dots for eyes.
  • Apparently, Jump City has a resident leprechaun.
  • This is the first appearance of the T-Car in Teen Titans Go!

References

  • Beast Boy plays a video game where the main boss is a large brain, giving a nod to the Doom Patrol's nemesis: the Brain.
    • The game over message "You Are Die" is a reference to some older video games having poor translations when they were ported to the US, like "All your base belong to us"
      • It can also be a reference to the iconic X-Men line, "Welcome to die".
  • The face of DC Western hero, Jonah Hex, is on the casino that Ed robs. Also, the one performing there tonight was Mumbo Jumbo, a villain from the original Teen Titans series.
  • Late in the episode Cyborg, Starfire, Raven, and BB get coffee at a store called "Justice Java" with Superman drinking a cup of coffee on the sign.
  • During the police car chase scene, the song that's playing is Yakety Sax by Boots Randolph.
  • When the T-car bounces off the planets, the sounds emulate those of a classic pinball table.

Continuity

  • Once again, the BAT-O's stand is shown and Food Bear is shown for the second time since Legendary Sandwich.
  • This episodes begins the Seagull's running gag.
  • Super Robin is alluded when Robin states that the other Titans laugh at him for not having powers.

Errors

  • On Robin's first drivers test, he is shown to get seven deductions, but has eight. It could be that Ed has given him the extra one but didn't tell him.
