...okay maybe it should.
Teen Titans, a DC brand consisting of a bunch of throw away characters and Batman's boy sex slave, has seen incredible popularity since its reboot in 1980 and even more with the beloved and critically acclaimed 2003 cartoon series. However, recent attempts by Cartoon Network to fuck up every property they own saw a reboot to the great series with Teen Titans Go!, developed by two guys who never even saw the original series or comics.
Now in both shows, our very own Brony Queen Tara Strong voices the Hot Topic mascot Raven. Considering the creators and new staff clearly lack originality or sense of comedy, they sought out to do what any desperate show staff does: Pander their asses off to the public. How did they do it? Well their most obvious joke and recurring joke is making the dark, brooding character voiced by
Mary Sue Twilight Sparkle a pegasister. Seriously.

While the pony obsessed Raven has had many instances of mentioning the show before, playing with her Pretty Pretty Pegasi on screen, and even turning the other Titans in to pegasi, the pandering levels coming to Cartoon Network will reach critical levels, a possible 6.9 on the Pandurin Scale. If you go check on the official Teen Titans GO! wiki, it gives a synopsis that screams "HEY BRONIES, PLEASE WATCH US."
Control Freak zaps the Titans into the latest episode of Pretty Pretty Pegasus, and the team has to figure out a way to help the creatures in order to get home.
So the titans get zapped in to the television world of Pretty Pretty Pegasus, by this guy:
The villain Conrtol Freak, a 4th wall breaking staple of both the old and new series, is basically the neckbeard of all neckbeards of the DC unverse. His powers are the ability to control machines and a magic TV remote that lets him bend reality. He IS the average brony's wet dream, and he gets to shoehorn some superheroes in to his favorite pony show. Truly writer Merrill Hagan knows her Fanfiction premises.
While yet another show has fallen victim to Mocking Bronies Syndrome, something that all lower tier shows have been trying more and more recently (MAD! and Bob's Burgers for example), this one looks to be the absolute cringiest and pandering of all. While we may never know when the ride ends, we can tune in at 6 PM EST Thursday to see just how awful and sexy they make the DC pony world, or how many ponies Tara Strong gets to voice, this being the only time I will ever endorse a Teen Titans GO Episode. One thing we can be certain of, however, is that Control Freak will be browsing Horse News at some point in the episode, this being the ultimate fandom site.
What, were you expecting the ACTUAL show to appear in a Batman comic or something? Do you know where you are? This is Horse News, faggot.
