Yup, you read it right here, folks! Every Saturday for five months, we’ll watch two randomly selected episodes of the Teen Titans cartoon. Since they’re not necessarily in order, there will be a break in between the two episodes.
Do you want to be part of this watch-along? Continue reading below.
Who?: Anyone reading this far into the thread
What?: Teen Titans (2003)

When?: Saturday, September 19th, at 6:00PM PST/9:00PM EST
Why?: It’s fun! And we need a show to watch until the Arrowverse comes back.
How?: Like this!
- ACCESSIBILITY: To access this show, go to the “Movies & TV” category, click “Animated Series”, and sniff out the Teen Titans cartoon from 2003. Alternatively, find the show under “Cartoon Network” on HBO Max.
- MULTITASKING: This is not merely watching a cartoon; that’d be too easy. Watch both episodes on a larger device (), and use a smaller device () to make comments during the show.
- READY TO ROLL: To help this run
silkysmooth, strike the play button right at 6:00PM PST/9:00PM EST. For the next episode, do the same thing at 6:30PM PST/9:30PM EST. Each episode
sums upto 22 minutes, so we’ll have about 8 minutes between each episode.
- SHOW MUST GO ON: We’re not skipping the theme song at the beginning. You are allowed to skip the end credits; just be back in time for the second episode.
- DO NOT GET LOST: If it’s 6:01PM PST, we’re a minute into the first episode. If it’s 6:31PM PST, we’re a minute into the second episode. If you do get lost, let us know in the comments. I’ll tell you which minute we’re on.
The episodes for this week are as follows:
1. “The Sum of His Parts” (Season 1, Episode 5)
A day of fun in the park is cut short when Cyborg suddenly freezes like a statue. His power cell is dying. While the problem is easily convinced with a new battery, Cyborg is reminded he’s not completely human.
2. “Can I Keep Him?” (Season 3, Episode 10)
Starfire adopts a weird mutant silkworm named Silkie as a pet. But when she feeds him some alien food from Tamaran, Silkie has an unexpected and monstrous growth spurt. Can Starfire still keep her beloved worm?
So charge your devices and call all of your family—mutant silkworms included—because the watch-along for these two episodes starts tomorrow!
