Animated Atrocities-Hey You, Don't Forget... by AMX-269 Animated Atrocities-Hey You, Don't Forget... by AMX-269
Even without the burning hatred I've seen some people have for this show, I can safely say that "Teen Titans Go" is Cartoon Network's weakest show right now, at least in terms of quality. The fact that the show is pushed so heavily and the numerous examples which clearly show the writers taking potshots at the show's critics and excusing poor writing  with "it's a kid's show" does not help its case at all. However, most of the time, this show's episodes are more stupid than offensive, and that makes it easier to just ignore them.

And then you have an episode where a character is shamed for not wanting to participate in the stampeding, mob fights, and overall craziness that is Black Friday, and in fact, can be seen as encouraging this type of behavior. As someone who had to work on Black Friday for about four years (one year witnessing a woman in the store with a 2-year-old at 2:30 in the morning), I can safely say that this behavior is not something that should be glorified or encouraged, even if it's supposed to be a parody or whatever.

But that's not the episode I find most insulting. Instead, it's this episode, where the message I got from it was "It's perfectly okay to try and fit people into a singular label, because life is exactly like an 80s movie. And if anyone disagrees with you, you have every right to beat them into oblivion, and even if you get in trouble, they'll get in trouble too, despite doing nothing to deserve getting punished." Kids, I've got news for you: high school is usually not how it's portrayed in the media, and trying to fit yourself into one cliche is only going to earn you regular visits to the guidance counselor.

What makes this episode particularly infuriating is that not once is Robin brought out of his delusion that his actions are reasonable. He tries to claim that Beast Boy (a "nerd") is bullying Cyborg (a "jock") by being friends with him, and yet it's Robin who starts wailing on Beast Boy; completely unprovoked, I may add. And for some reason, even though Beast Boy clearly looks like he's been beat up and the others were clearly not involved, everyone gets in trouble for something Robin did. And what eventually causes the Titans to be expelled? Robin going berserk because Beast Boy became Valedictorian (somehow) and crane-kicking all of them, including the girls. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't punishing the victim of a physical attack count as, I don't know, victim-blaming?

And even after all that, the only thing Robin "learns" is that he didn't give everyone the "right" labels, and he pretty much forces the other Titans to accept that they were apparently just as at fault as he was, and that being defined by a singular label is acceptable. Uh huh.

Also, I'm starting to find it baffling that this show makes constant references to things like "Small Wonder," "The Golden Girls," and 80s movies, when chances are that its target audience wasn't even alive when all that stuff was around, let alone have any desire to watch any of it.

This episode still gives me a bad taste un my mouth to this day.
Cartoon Network needs to let Teen Titans GO end and focus on properly concluding Adventure Time with a proper ending and continuing with their other shows.

Okay I hate Teen Titans Go with lot of my anger. This episode is one of those episode that just piss me off and it gets worse and worse and worse every time I see it. Its annoying,No no no annoying is not the right word to call this episode maybe frustrated is the right word.
One of my problems with the episode is concept. The idea of the Titans going to School...Is a good idea. Thats something the Original Teen Titans would do an in episode. Maybe like they go undercover to stop an evil plain from a villain,But back to the subject. Its done so badly like an other TTG Episode with concept. Hell shows like Kappa Mikey have done a better job making fun of high school. If they wanted to make fun of High School its fine but theres get to be better jokes the just ROBIN BEING THE BIGGEST PRICK ON THE FACE OF THE TTG PLANET!!!!!! 
SPEAKING OF ROBIN!!!!!!! My god,Robin is just the worse character in this episode and in TTG. He's just every arrogant character role into one. He's like Robin From Batman And Robin but worse,In Fact,The Robin from Batman and Robin is laughing out him! Every time Robin talks I just wanted to kill or shot him. You know if I kill TTG Robin I beat no people will blame for it. The only reason they made Robin arrogant is because Michael and Aaron(The creators of Teen Titans Go) didn't watch the original show. He nothing but this giant prick,He kicks and beats people up just because he doesn't get what he wants. MR Krabs: "What A Baby."

Robin was the only one that had to be PUNISHED!!!! FOR ONCE! This version of Starfire, Raven, Cyborg and Beast Boy did nothing in this episode AND ARE LIKEABLE FOR ONCE!

Good Ending: A student comes and tells the director that Robin is the only responsable and the other four did nothing. So Robin is the only expelled.
