While most teens are fighting acne, the adolescents of DC Comics’ Teen Titans are battling interplanetary villains. Now they’re taking on TV in a new series coming to Cartoon Network in 2003 and later to Kids’ WB! The half hour animated actioner has Boy Wonder Robin leading fellow teen superheroes Cyborg, Beast Boy, Starfire and Raven in an intergalactic struggle for the fate of Earth.
Created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, Teen Titans made its comic book debut in 1964 and soon grew into its own monthly comic book series that ran for seven years. The New Teen Titans followed in 1980 and became DC’s most popular comic book of the decade that followed. The revamped version dealt more with the teenage angst aspect and serves as the basis for the new series.
Warner Bros. Animation is producing under the guidance of Emmy Award winner Glen Murakami.
Also from Warner Bros. Animation is the return of Daffy Duck as Duck Dodgers. Cartoon Network will premiere the all-new, half-hour action/comedy animated series in 2004.
Daffy and his sidekick, Porky Pig, will once again venture into the 24th century as they attempt to protect planet Earth from Marvin the Martian and other enemies. Each episode of Duck Dodgers will feature two 11-minute cartoons.
Duck Dodgers is created, written and directed by Spike Brandt and Tony Cervone with Paul Dini and Tom Minton serving as producers and writers.
