Teen Titans Go!

Moms and dads may remember the first time that they saw the original Teen Titans. It featured a group of rogue superheroes who all have various powers, including Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven, and Beast Boy. The show originally aired in 2003. The reboot, Teen Titans Go!, aired on April 23, 2013. There is no continuity from the original Teen Titans, though. Given how children’s tastes have changed with the times, it’s not surprising that this new show got a total overhaul before launching. The new version is a comedic spinoff that will have your child rolling over with laughter at the fun they portray and the silly adventures that they find themselves on. Cyborg and Beast Boy are the best of friends, and Raven is a fan-favorite character who is voiced by the notable Tara Strong, a highly-regarded voice-over actress.

Madagascar: A Little Wild
