"Salty Codgers" is the eighth episode of the second season of Teen Titans Go!, and the 60th overall episode of the series.

Summary

Mad Mod steals the youth from Cyborg, Beast Boy, Starfire, and Robin, turning them into Raven's favorite type of people; salty codgers. Instead of helping the Titans get their youth back, Raven teaches them how cool old people really are.

Plot

The episode starts in the middle of the street with some young children enjoying themselves and start mocking old men like Mad Mod. As revenge, Mod uses his magic cane to steal their youth and making them into old people and the rest of children with teenagers, making him younger again. The Titans shows up to stop him but Raven seems to like pretty much old people as she kisses them and hugs them. After a wild chase to catch him, the Titans except for Raven gets stuck under a giant foot statue. Robin orders Raven to get the cane before Mad Mod reaches it but she kicks it back to him accidentally on purpose allowing him to turn the Titans into old people except for Raven who dodged the laser attack.

Meanwhile at the Tower, the old Titans arrive slowly and start to think a plan about catching Mad Mod to bring their youth back, but due to their olderness, they can't hear, see or feel properly as they used to. And Raven seems to enjoy pretty much with them since she claims that they aren't annoying anymore like they used to when they were young. And then again she makes them to understand how good and mature it is and with that part of it comes wisdom. After a very long senior fun time with old-men activities, Raven prefers to be like this forever, but not for long at a late night when the old Titans were about to sleep, Beast Boy was in a aquarium in fish form, motionless, making Raven terrified. The other Titans said he passed which caused Raven confusion. Raven then decides to make their last moments even better with the last three remaining Titans.

Later that night, in a storm weather, the old Titans had their last breath by olderness, as Raven dropped a rose at their gravestones after mourning. While she was all alone in the Tower along with Cyborg's grandchildren, she realizes that she misses her own friends. After last slight of tear on her eyes, she finally makes a decision by resurrecting the Titans back to life with a contact from Death himself. Her interdimensional journey towards Death's fortress was quite easy knowing that she's used with horrifying stuff, and when she finally reaches to Death, she sees him playing a game of pool with soul balls and starts to sing and dance after a little conversation with Raven. Since he is her own uncle, Death accepts to give Raven his friend's souls back only if she trades her soul in exchange. The deal has been compromised when Raven ordered first her part of the deal and didn't gave him her soul claiming that she doesn't have one for being half-demon, leading for Death to get tricked and curses her, allowing Raven to escape along with the Titans's souls.

Salty Codgers 3

Back at the Tower, when Raven returns with her friends's souls, she sees the old Titans being turned into zombies knowing that it was a part of Death's consequences. And suddenly she starts to love them even more than being just old people as she kisses and hugs them again.

Songs

Trivia

  • Death and the ferryman are both voiced by David Kaye.
  • This episode aired 10 years after the original series episode "Aftershock: Part 1"
  • This is the first appearance of Mad Mod, one of the Titans' adult enemies from the original series.
  • In the original series, Mad Mod is actually an elder and uses either illusions or his cane to turn himself younger and more energetic, but at the expense of his victims. This does not seem to be the case in this episode, as he is already young (though it could be that he regained his stolen youth elsewhere).
  • Starfire is apparently extremely self conscious about her appearance, unlike her original series counterpart; not only does she react violently if anything bad happens to her hair (i.e. "Legendary Sandwich", "Nose Mouth"), but also her face in this episode (and in "Dude Relax").
  • It is shown that Raven has a strange obsession with elderly people.
  • This is the third episode to end with the Titans being old. The first two were "Super Robin" and "Staring at the Future."
  • Raven and Starfire break the fourth wall by staring at the screen.
  • This episode could be non-canon, as the episode ends with all the Titans (except for Raven) becoming old and dying.
  • In the French version of this episode, the scene where Raven is in front of each Titan's tombstone is cut.

References

  • The gigantic foot that steps on Cyborg, Robin, Starfire, and Beast Boy is a reference to Monty Python's Flying Circus.
  • The boatsman in the underworld is Charon, the ferryman of the dead from Greek mythology.
  • All of the tombstones in the song Last Breath reference DC characters known for being dead. From left to right, they read: Boston Brand (a.k.a. "Deadman"), Jason Todd (the second Robin), Martha Wayne, Thomas Wayne (both of which are Bruce Wayne's, aka Batman's, parents) and General Zod (whose death in Man of Steel was the subject of much controversy.)
  • One of the poses Death is in seems to be the moonwalk, made famous by Michael Jackson.
  • Beast Boy's appearance as an elder looks strikingly similar to Yoda from the Star Wars series.

Continuity

Errors

  • Strangely, Raven didn't care so much for the elderly in "Hey Pizza!" as she does in this episode.
  • Raven claims to have no soul in this episode, yet Robin was able to trade her soul to the Puppet Wizard in "Puppets, Whaaaaat?". In addition, she's able to use her "soul-self" for many of her attacks, as well as being able to become a ghost when she died in "Ghostboy" and "Hot Garbage". All of this may show that she is lying.

Running Gags

  • The Titans being hard of hearing when they are in their old forms.
