"Nature" is the seventh episode in the second season of Teen Titans Go!, and the fifty-ninth overall episode of the series.

Summary

When Beast Boy loses his ability to change into animals, he realizes that he’s lost touch with his wild side. He goes to the forest to reconnect with his inner beast, but Mother Nature is not as great as he had hoped.

Plot

The episode begins when a Giant Robotic Alien attacks Jump City; the Teen Titans are ready to save the city once again, all except for Beast Boy, who attempted to transform himself into any animal. When his changing abilities fail, the Titans are starting to get worried about Beastie's powers. Robin orders him to turn into a rhino, but Beast Boy can only pretend to be one. Eventually, the alien smacks him into a electric pole, which luckily knocks it down and shocks the alien. Beast Boy admits his victory was due to his animal powers, but he's only lying to the others to cover up his tracks.

Back at the Tower, Beast Boy hasn't yet admitted that his powers are gone, and when the Titans are getting ready to eat pizza, Beast Boy seems to have prepared into a fancy table (specifically made for gentlemen). He teaches the Titans not to eat like animals but instead in a more cultured style. Robin, confused at Beast Boy's rich-boy behavior, claims that the comforts of modern life have stripped him of his animal instinct. Beast Boy finally realizes what is going wrong, and so he plans to regain his powers back by reconnecting with nature. But Robin warns that Mother Nature is the worst mother of all and the reason why they all are living inside.

Beast Boy heads off into the wild with nothing but underwear on. His first few minutes are spent pleasantly by frolicking in the fields, drinking stream water, and smelling the flowers. However, animals start to attack and pester him, and his camps that he tries to set up are always foiled (followed by a swift strike of lightning no matter where he is.) Three weeks later, the Titans are searching around in the forest for Beast Boy as Robin keeps warning them to be wary of the danger. He also stresses that they need to get a meal whenever they can, so he eats a butterfly. Cyborg and Raven ask what the heck he's doing, and Robin explains a butterfly is nothing but pure protein! Starfire begs him to stop munching on the insects, but he keeps on indulging in the free meals.

Meanwhile, Beast Boy doesn't how to survive anymore (nor does he really have the will), but a rabbit soon changes his mood. At first he is friendly to the bunny, but soon he remembers his animal instincts and chases after the juicy, flesh-filled rabbit. Suddenly, he runs into the guardian of the forest: Mother Nature.The Titans at this time are camping out, and Robin pops out (now in a primitive, survival garb) and gives them some water to drink from a lake infested with dead fish. The Titans spit it out in disgust warns.

In the other area of the forest, Beast Boy claims that Robin was right about Mother Nature being so rude and cruel when she squished a Robin with her bear hand for "bad-mouthing" her. Beast Boy explains that the animals are pitted against each other in a vicious cycle of death, but Mother Nature stresses that this is only the "circle of life", and that survival of the fittest is the way to go. However, Beast Boy has other ideas about how the world could work...

On the other end of the forest, Robin has found a skeleton of an reindeer and he believes that it's Beast Boy'd skeleton, theorizing that he regained his powers back, only to be killed by the "King Deer". He call the Titans over and shows them the skeleton, but Raven doesn't really believe it (as she was just ready to return back to the Tower) Cyborg and Starfire, on the other hand, cry thoroughly, thinking that Beast Boy has finally kicked the bucket.

Later on, Beast Boy manages to convince Mother Nature to change the whole nature into a city metropolis of animals, wooden buildings, and taco stands to give it a vibe of urban life and culture. Although millions of animals have just lost their homes in the forest, they now live in the apartments and mushroom houses, and so Mother Nature is content with the new city-scape. She hugs Beast Boy for the wonderful suggestion, and with that, Beastie has finally regained his powers! Beast Boy starts going through his long lineup of possible animals, excited that he can now change into anything again. Settling on a butterfly, he soon meets his end as tribal-like Robin shows up and devours him for pure protein!

Characters

Trivia

  • This episode aired 10 years after the original Teen Titans episode "Fractured".
  • According to the episode, Beast Boy's powers stem from nature, which is most likely why Beast Boy is a vegetarian.

References

  • The mushroom homes created by Mother Nature may reference the television series, The Smurfs.
  • Robin's imagined version of Mother Nature has four horns, similar to former GWAR lead singer Oderus Urungus.
  • This episode's plot is similar to the plot of the SpongeBob Squarepants episode "Nature Pants" in which SpongeBob reconnects with nature by living life with the jellyfish-- but he eventually finds that the natural life is much harder than he thought.

Continuity

  • The Giant Robotic Alien was first seen in "Colors of Raven." In that episode, the Titans had failed to defeat him because of Raven's emoticlones, which allowed his return in this episode.
  • This is the third time Beast Boy is shown with his hair combed, which was previously seen in "Girl's Night Out" and "Matched".
  • This is the second time Beast Boy loses his powers. The first time was in the previous episode.
  • The death count from last season continues, with Robin eating Beast Boy, being the second death for the second season. Beat Box died in the previous episode.
    • Beast Boy dies for the second time. The first time was in "Ghostboy".
      • Beast Boy's death in this episode is most likely non-canon, like the deaths of the Titans in Ghostboy.

Errors

  • The tacos have meat in them, yet Beast Boy still eats them despite being a vegetarian. However, it might just be vegetarian meat instead of real meat, or he could be REALLY desperate for food.
  • Beast Boy has no clothes when he returns to nature but when he meets Mother Nature, he regains his clothes.

Running Gags

  • Wild animals chasing Beast Boy.
  • Beast Boy getting repeatably struck by lightning while making a fire and raising his sticks into the air.
  • Robin eating butterflies for and shouting " pure protein!".
