"Waffles" is the 39th episode of the first season of Teen Titans Go!, and the 39th overall episode of the series.

Summary

Cyborg and Beast Boy show their love for waffles by making it the only word they say, much to the annoyance of the other Titans. As a result, the two Titans have to "sit this one out" as the other Titans investigate a distress signal resulting in them falling into a trap by Brother Blood with the help of his new henchman, Pain Bot.

Plot

Cyborg and Beast Boy are playing a game of " Who can last the longest only saying 'waffles' ". Starfire wants to join, Raven calls the game stupid, and Robin thinks it's extremely annoying. When Star questions why the game is so great, BB and Cy slip into an old-timey song number, "Waffles", which only has that one word sung repeatedly through the lyrics.

The song is so annoying that it triggers Robin into pointing his grappling gun at the two, but Starfire stops him and Robin calms down, asking to change the subject. Robin asks the team what breakfast they feel like having. Everyone seems to agree on waffles.

Beast Boy flirting with Raven

Robin proceeds to make waffles, following the recipe on the screen that reads: two eggs, flour, mix. As Robin prepares the waffles, Beast Boy starts to flirt with Raven. Beast Boy only said "waffles" as he looks at her dreamily, Raven begins to blush and looked away right after he said that (no one actually knows what Beast Boy meant, but apparently she did). When Robin finished preparing the waffles, he presents them to BB and Cy, they flip the plate, throwing waffles at his face. Cyborg uses a picture to explain that BB and him meant "sandwich" as they continue to say waffle over and over to sound like they are explaining with words.

Robin intensifies again and holds his grappling gun threateningly pointed at the two, but the Titans Tower distress signal goes off interrupting him. The call alerts the team that there is trouble at the docks.

Cyborg and Beastboy as waffles

They rush to the elevator, but Robin stops BB and Cy, telling them to stay. Raven and Starfire agree, and BB and Cy continue having fun in the tower.

The three Titans arrive in the warehouse and Brother Blood reveals himself. Shocked, Robin, Starfire and Raven watch as blue lasers surround them, forming an indestructible cage. The alarm was a trap, and Brother Blood gloats, saying he has thought of "every contingency." It proved true.

Raven can only make portals inside the cage, Starfire's starbolts easily bounce off the cage bars, and every time Robin touches the lasers, he gets electrocuted.

Brother Blood explains his plans. He needs control of Titans Tower's weapon arsenal, but Robin tells him he won't succeed because of the tight security system. No one can access it without each Titan's voice authorization.

Brother Blood's goal in Waffles: gaining total control of the Tower's weapon arsenal

In light of this, Brother Blood hangs a mic in the cage and attempts hypnotizing the three with his mind control powers.

Brother Blood wants them to talk into the mic

When that doesn't work, he brings out a small looking robot called Pain Bot. The titans are not intimidated by it, but when Pain Bot unveils its hundreds of different torture devices, the Titans immediately give Brother Blood their voice authorizations.

The three agree it isn't worth getting tortured over, especially because Blood needs to get Cyborg and Beast Boy to say the authorization, too. Confident that it is SO possible, Brother Blood leaves to lure the other two titans. Robin is confident that Brother Blood is no match for Beast Boy and Cyborg's commitment to tomfoolery, and though Starfire and Raven hesitantly agree, Robin mostly shows relief that they avoided torture.

Back in the Tower, BB and Cy are chilling until Brother Blood's face shows up on the TV monitor. He maniacally reveals that he has captured their teammates and where they are located. BB and Cy are appalled and angry, pointing at him to indicate they were coming for him, but Brother Blood is thrown off by them saying waffles every time they speak. However he brushes if off, summarizing his message again and leaves the transmission.

Cyborg and BB are captured by Pain Bot.

Beast Boy and Cyborg arrive at the crime scene, the other three titans caged but in sight. Cyborg shoots at Blood but he easily dodges the blasts and the two are captured by Pain Bot. They are strapped to a torture table and a microphone is hung above them, but the two keep speaking with only the word waffle as they spout their banter. Brother Blood proceeds to use Pain Bot to torture them until they say the authorization. Beast Boy and Cyborg scream in agony, but even their cries of pain are 'waffle's.

The three titans in the cage flinch at the pain the two are going through, and gets Robin has an idea. Raven guesses it: Waffles. He throws his bat-o-rang at Blood's Pain Bot controller first and it clips, then explodes.

A music montage starts. Robin, Raven, and Starfire sing a pop rock auto tune version of Waffles Song. Brother Blood yells at them to stop, but they didn't. It was too much for him and he jumps on Pain Bot and rides away, through the wall, to escape the awful song.

Waffle reprise

Waffle (reprise)

The three titans celebrate, dancing and singing the Waffle song again. Beast Boy and Cyborg interrupts and tells them to stop, with the right words this time. The three titans widen their eyes in surprise, asking the two why they stopped playing. Beast Boy states in a matter of fact manner that the three ruined the game for them, and Cyborg agrees, all while being in terrible shape from the torture. BB is skeletal the neck down and Cyborg's eye is cracked, his head falling off. Raven then asks how are they going to get out of the cage, and Robin simply responds, "waffles."

Characters

Songs

Trivia

  • Though he made a cameo appearance in "Legs", this is Brother Blood's first, full appearance, with John DiMaggio reprising his role as Brother Blood.
  • This is the seventh episode to be named after a food, and the second episode to have a title based on breakfast foods.
  • In this episode Beast Boy and Cyborg are the bravest of the Titans, as they would not give up their codes to Brother Blood even when being repeatedly tortured. Whereas the others gave up their codes at the first threat of pain. Either that or it shows their dedication to their ridiculous games.
  • You could argue that Raven is seen without her hood in this episode, because when she, Robin, and Starfire were singing about waffles, her face on the waffle is her face without her hood (her eye outline and gem), making it the fifth time overall.
  • During Robin, Starfire, and Raven's version of the waffles song, their characters as they appear in the show's theme song dance around Brother Blood's head, therefore breaking the Fourth Wall.
  • Throughout the duration of the episode, the word "waffles" is said 188 times.
  • Beast Boy could have easily escaped Brother Blood's trap by simply transforming into a dinosaur or any large animal to break the cuffs on his hands and feet.
    • However, he still could've been tortured by the pain bot uncuffed, or recaptured if he did.
  • In the "A little waffle later..." scene, instrumental music that sounds like KC and the Sunshine Band's "Boogie Shoes" could be heard. The song would later be used as the base of the Pee-Pee Dance song, which is based off "Take It To Da House" by Trick Daddy. Said song samples "Boogie Shoes."

Continuity

  • This is the second episode in which Beast Boy does not use any of his animal forms. The first being "The Left Leg".
  • The Cyborg and Beast Boy icons in the song Waffles are the same ones shown in "Colors of Raven" on Cyborg's tracker.
  • This is the fourth episode where Beast Boy plays a stringed musical instrument during a musical number or montage.

References

  • On one of the Titan's posters, there is a picture of Batman.
  • The front cover headline on the newspaper Robin was reading said "BATMOBILE LOST A WHEEL!" and "JOKER GOT AWAY", which is an allusion to the well-known Christmas carol parody "Jingle Bells, Batman Smells."
    • On the same newspaper there is a "butler for hire" ad with a picture of Batman's butler Alfred Pennyworth.
  • The New-Age music used right before the waffles song is the same music used in the Raving Rabbids Travel in Time video game level "Holly-Bollywood".
  • During a point in both versions of the Waffles song, the titans' heads are shown with a similar design to Pac-Man.

Errors

  • The Titans said that Brother Blood's mind control wouldn't work on them, but they were able to fall under Mother Mae-Eye's control in Pie Bros.   

Running Gags

  • Beast Boy and Cyborg chanting "Waffles".
  • The Titans singing the "Waffles Song" (Beast Boy and Cyborg sing at the beginning and Starfire, Robin and Raven sing at the end).
