    CBS (ended 1968)
    The Andy Griffith Show is definitely a TV classic. It ran from 1960 to 1968, producing 249 episodes.

    The main character, Andy (Andy Griffith), was a widowed father of a polite little boy named Opie (Ron Howard) and is a sheriff, who works with nervous and very suspecting Barney Fife (Don Knotts). They all live in the nice southern town of Mayberry. But, Mayberry can get a little dangerous when the town drunk, Otis Campbell (Hal Smith), is on the loose. Thelma Lou (Betty Lynn) is Barney's sweetheart, although Andy had to help him describe his feelings to her. Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier) is the very loving and caring but stern housekeeper for Andy and Opie. Gomer Pyle (Jim Nabors) is a bone-headed, thoughtless, but humorous character. He is a gas attendant. Goober Pyle (George Lindsey) is Gomer Pyle's cousin. They are very alike, you could say, and arrive in Mayberry when Gomer decides to enlist in the United States Marine Corps. The show had two spin-offs: Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. and Mayberry R.F.D.

    Nickelodeon
    SpongeBob SquarePants is one of Nickelodeon's highest-rated cartoons for children and a staple of American television. It was created by marine biologist Stephen Hillenburg during his tenure as a teacher at the Ocean Institute in California. The show follows the adventures of an eternally optimistic sea sponge named SpongeBob who works at a fast food restaurant, attends a boating school, and lives in an underwater pineapple. The program stars a colorful cast of ten main characters and takes place in the sub-surface town of Bikini Bottom. Characters SpongeBob SquarePants - The main character of the series and a selfless creature whose sunny attitude is his trademark. He works as a fry cook at the Krusty Krab, Bikini Bottom's premier daytime eatery. He is known throughout town for the delicious Krabby Patty burgers he makes. SpongeBob is perpetually enrolled in boating school, the underwater equivalent of a driver's education course. He lives in a submerged pineapple home with his pet snail Gary. Mr. Krabs - SpongeBob's boss at the Krusty Krab. He lives in an anchor with his teenage daughter, Pearl the whale. While Mr. Krabs often acts as a fatherly figure to SpongeBob, he is very cheap and frequently lets his obsession with money cloud his judgment. He loves sailing, talks like a pirate, and is in a romantic relationship with SpongeBob's teacher Mrs. Puff. Squidward Tentacles - A snobbish octopus who is SpongeBob's next-door neighbor and coworker at the Krusty Krab. He is pessimistic and despises SpongeBob for his enthusiastic attitude. Squidward's favorite hobby is playing his clarinet, but he is not very skilled at it. He also fancies himself a talented artist and keeps countless self portraits around his house. Patrick Star - Patrick is a pink starfish who is SpongeBob's best friend. He is dimwitted and clueless when it comes to almost anything; after all, he lives under a rock. He is always quick to give SpongeBob unintentionally bad advice that lands them both in trouble. Despite his obliviousness to the world around him, Patrick is enduringly loyal and generally good-natured. Sheldon J. Plankton - The arch-rival of Mr. Krabs and the owner of a failing rival restaurant called the Chum Bucket. With the help of his sentient computer Karen, Plankton is always trying to steal the Krusty Krab's secret recipe for Krabby Patties. SpongeBob has a knack for unintentionally thwarting Plankton's efforts without even trying. Karen Plankton - Plankton's sidekick and wife who supplies him with his evil schemes. She is a computer system that he builds into most of his diabolical inventions. Most of the time, Karen manifests on a screen in the Chum Bucket laboratory or in a mobile robot body. She usually acts as Plankton's voice of reason. Sandy Cheeks - A thrill-seeking cowgirl squirrel from the state of Texas who wears a diving suit and lives in a dome full of air. She has a passion for extreme sports and enjoys practicing karate with SpongeBob. When she is not searching for adventure, Sandy can be found working as a scientist and inventor. Mrs. Puff - SpongeBob's teacher at the town boating school and the girlfriend of Mr. Krabs. She tries her best to be patient with SpongeBob, as he is her most enthusiastic student, but finds his reckless boat-driving exhausting. SpongeBob has failed her class more times than she can count, but he only seems to grow more passionate about driving with each failure. Pearl Krabs - A teenage whale who is Mr. Krabs' beloved daughter. She will inherit the Krusty Krab when she grows up, but she doesn't know or care much about fast food at all. Pearl is clever for her age, especially when it comes to math or getting money from her father, but she is still immature. Gary the Snail - SpongeBob's pet sea snail who communicates through cat-like meows and other unintelligible noises. Surprisingly, he is the most civilized member of the cast and outsmarts his owner on a regular basis. He leaves a trail of sticky slime wherever he goes.moreless

    Sesame Street

    Sesame Street

    Follow
    PBS
    Sesame Street is a widely recognized and perpetually daring experiment in educational children's programming. This show has taken popular-culture and turned it upside-down. The fast-paced advertisements that had parents of the new era worrying for their children were the basis for the original format of this show. The show has often satirized pop culture, and made itself easier for parents to watch along too. And thus, the positive impact this show has had on modern society is beyond another. No show is more recognized the world over by as many generations and walks of life. Shown in its original format or with changes to reflect a regional education focus, Sesame Street is now seen in over 140 countries. The show that Entertainment Weekly named the "20th Best Ever Show" has changed the education scene to focus on "entertainment." This has turned out to be a valuable theory that not only helps the medicinal learning go down easier, but it also increases the effectiveness of the information being taught. In an almost backwards sense, the show stays fresh by recycling programming ideas every three years, by which time a new group of kids is watching. Unlike most PBS Kids shows, which have an original run, then go into continuous repeats until getting dropped by PBS or sold to another network, Sesame Street has created many new episodes every season since its debut Nov. 10, 1969. American teachers now expect children to arrive on the first day of school knowing the basics about letters, numbers, and language. "Kindergarten now does what first grade used to do," creator Joan Ganz Cooney has said, "and I think that's directly due to Sesame Street." International versions have changed Sesame Street to be more relevant to their culture and environments. They adjust the unique American inner city, with a cast made up mainly of Muppets, African-Americans, Spaniards and Chinese to reflect their own lifestyles. For example, Canada's Sesame Park features a small suburban town inhabited by folks like an otter and a bear, a bush pilot, a disabled child in a wheel-chair and her cat and Russia's Ulitsa Sesame set in a Russian dvor (courtyard) has a 9-foot tall tree spirit who has his joyous and problem-solving Muppet friends. No show can help in tumultuous or troubled times like Sesame Street. For example: • The Israelis and the Palestinians have now merged their independent spin-offs, to help teach the fighting cultures to accept each other for who they are, not what they have done in the past. • The original American Sesame Street helped children deal with the incidents of 9-11 • On the week of October 4-8, 2004, Sesame Workshop actually dug up reruns of Sesame Street episodes from its 32nd season, in which a hurricane plundered the neighborhood. This move was to come to grips with those disabused by the four hurricanes that struck Florida in a six-week span the previous August and September. It also sent a message about the news' propensity for covering violent acts. • The current South African government has not taken much action on the matters of HIV and AIDS, so in 2003, the South African version of Sesame Street added in a 5-year-old girl monster who manages to go about daily life with ease, even though she intercepted HIV through a blood transfusion shortly after birth. This led to an American backlash, even though her exposure in the States has always been restricted to sesameworkshop.org. Undoubtedly, she is the hardest-edged Muppet since Jim Henson's ill-fated "Creatures from the Planet Gorch" on Saturday Night Live's first season. • No other puppet than a Muppet, namely Elmo, could be taken seriously when asking America's congressional Education Appropriations Subcommittee for more funding to school music programs, so that "when Elmo goes to school, there will be the instruments to play." (Unfortunately, Newt Gingrich's Congress chose instead to divert to Sesame Street production funds from other PBS series. Among the casualties was one of Sesame Street's godchildren, Ghostwriter.) •In the mid-70s, they introduced Linda Bove, a deaf actress playing a deaf librarian that lives a life equal to all the rest of the area's inhabitants. Please note that Sesame Street's air time varies between various PBS stations in America. In recent years, a few PBS stations have dropped the show (including WNYE in New York, whose last airing was in June 2003). sesame street even had a touring show, SESAME STREET LIVE,which has just recently celebrated 25 years of performing. Characters Cookie Monster Cookie Monster has always had a passion for cookies, gobbling them up whenever he can. However, in order to promote healthy eating habits, Cookie Monster recently learned that cookies are a "sometime" food. So now, Cookie Monster also eats fruits and vegetables in addition to his trademark snack. Elmo Elmo is a cute little red monster, who wants to know more about the world he is growing up in. Oscar the Grouch Oscar lives in a dustbin, sure its not the most hygienic of places, but Oscar isn't the most hygienic of creatures. He likes to cause mischief but also enjoys learning. Ernie and Bert Best friends and room-mates, both showing us how people get along with each other and how sometimes you may even fall-out with your best friend. The Count The Count, would teaches us to count, whether it be really difficult numbers or easy numbers, the Counts thing is maths and counting, and he sure is good at it.

    The Nanny

    The Nanny

    CBS (ended 1999)
    When Fran Fine entered the Sheffield's residence in Park Avenue selling cosmetics, little did she know about how much she was going to change their lives. The Jewish girl from Queens got a job as the nanny for Maxwell Sheffield's (a Broadway producer) three kids: Maggie, Brighton and Gracie. But the Sheffields got more than just a nanny: they got Sylvia, Fran's compulsive eater, nosy mother; Val, Fran's best friend with a low I.Q.; and Yetta, Fran's grandmother. She gave joy to the house that had been blue ever since Mrs. Sheffield passed away, and quickly became friends with Niles, the butler, who is always aware of everything that is going on in the house. The attraction between Fran and Mr. Sheffield became evident as the years went by, for C.C.'s (Maxwell's business partner, who always had a crush on him) torture. Many people consider The Nanny as being the 90's version of "I Love Lucy". The show premiered in November, 1993 as a late addition to CBS's Wednesday fall lineup. The show quickly became a hit, moving to Monday nights on its second season and remaining there until its third. Then CBS moved it back to Wednesday nights, trying to improve the ratings for that night - a move that made CBS hold the time slot for the first time in 25 years, since Sonny & Cher! But ratings started to fall, and during the 5th season the producers decided to end its run, giving it one last season. The 6th season ran until March, when the show went into a hiatus. The series finale was shown before the remaining episodes, which were shown later during June. During its 6-year run, The Nanny was nominated for 11 Emmys, winning only one in 1995 for best costume designs. Fran Drescher was nominated twice for best actress: in 1996 and 1997. Renée Taylor also got a nomination as best supporting actress in 1996. A Fran Drescher doll was released during the show's run, featuring some of the outfits that were one of the show's trademarks.

    Kagome Higurashi is a modern day young girl who lives with her family by the old Higure shrine. Unbeknownst to Kagome, she is the reincarnation of priestess Kikyo and possesses the "Jewel of Four Souls" (the Shikon jewel). One ill-fated day, Kagome locates an ancient well near her home and is abruptly transported through the well and into a feudal Japan, inhabited by demons. There, she encounters Inuyasha, son of a powerful demon father and a human mother, who is pinned to a tree by an enchanted arrow. Kagome frees Inuyasha from the tree before she learns that all of the demons, including Inuyasha, are after the Shikon jewel in her possession.

Her preferred weapon is a giant boomerang. Sesshomaru - Sesshomaru is Inuyasha's older, pure-demon brother. He seeks the magic sword that his father gave to Inuyasha. Miroku - A Buddhist monk who, because of a curse from Naraku, has a Wind Tunnel (it's like a black hole) in his right hand. He is also quite the pervert. Naraku - Naraku is the villain of the series. His name translates as the word, "hell". He was born through the thief Onigumo's desire for Kikyo when he called dozens of demons in to devour himself. He has the ablilty to change his form into anything he wants, which he did to trick Inuyasha and Kikyo into hating each other. He has used Inuyasha's brother Sesshomaru to try and get rid of Inuyasha, but to no avail. He also has an 'army' of bug-type creatures, called Saimyosho. Naraku is also a half-demon like Inuyasha, but born in a different way. Naraku can choose the time of month to return to his 'original' form. He uses this time to re-arrange his body into a stronger and more powerful form. Naraku also gains the ablilty to make offspring, later. Koga - Koga is the son of a leader of the wolf demon tribe. He has 2 Shikon jewel shards in his legs (one in each) which gives him super speed. He first comes into the story when he attacks the village where Rin lived. He also says that he is in love with Kagome, which makes Inuyasha quite annoyed. Koga wants Naraku dead because he created Kagura who killed many of his friends from his tribe.moreless

    The Flintstones

    The Flintstones

    Follow
    ABC (ended 2001)
    The Flintstones was a parody on modern suburban life, set in the Stone Age. The characters in the cartoon series all behaved and spoke in a contemporary manner, though they lived in the prehistoric city of Bedrock. Fred worked as operator of a dinosaur-powered crane at Rock Hard & Quarry Cave Construction Co. (slogan: "Own Your Own Cave and Be Secure"). Around their split-level cave the Flintstones enjoyed such conveniences as Wilma's Stoneway piano, a hi-fi on which Fred could play his "rock" music (it consisted of a turntable and a bird with a long beak to serve as a needle), a vacuum cleaner (a baby elephant with a long trunk), and an automatic garbage disposal unit (a famished buzzard stashed under the sink). Their car, which sported tail fins, also came equipped with steamroller wheels--to smooth out the rocky road. Then one day in 1963 they were blessed with a baby daughter, whom they named Pebbles. Not to be outdone, their neighbors the Rubbles adopted an orphan boy named Bamm Bamm. (The two kids later had a Saturday morning cartoon series of their own, Pebbles and Bamm Bamm.) The Flintstones was always as much adult satire as children's fun. In many respects it resembled Jackie Gleason's popular Honeymooners, especially in the relationships of the principals. A wide range of caricatures passed through the stories: Lollobrickida, a pretty cook; Ann-Margrock, whose voice was supplied by Ann-Margret; attorney Perry Masonry (he never lost a case); Ed Sullystone, a TV host; Eppy Brianstone, a teenage impresario; and Weirdly and Creepella Gruesome, the strange couple who with their son Goblin moved into a cave nearby (this was a parody on The Addams Family and The Munsters, then popular). The Gruesomes thought that they were normal, and everyone else in Bedrock was odd. The Flintstones and its spin-offs had a highly successful run on Saturday mornings--on NBC from January 1967-September 1970, on CBS from September 1972-January 1974, back on NBC from February 1979-September 1984, and on ABC with The Flintstone Kids from September 1986-September 1989. This series has also many movies and specials (about 10 specials). Some of them are:"A Flintstones Christmas Carol", a flintstones version of the famous Charles Dickens book, "A Flintstones Christmas" where Fred replaces Santa Claus (Pebbles and Bamm Bamm are speaking now), "I Yabba Dabba Do" where Pebbles and Bamm Bamm are grown up and get married, and "Holly-Rock-a-bye Baby" where Pebbles gives birth.moreless

Season 5 codes come from a media marketing site. They all follow the 3-digit format, except for videos which are originally listed by their Roadshow / HIT Entertainment VHS or DVD catalog number. If you have a better scheme for the videos please contact the editor. Character Profiles The Wiggles Greg Wiggle Greg is the lead singer of The Wiggles, and if you just hear one singer in your favorite Wiggles song, he is the guy. His hobby is doing magic tricks. He can make things disappear, but it'd be once in blue moon if he ever succeeds in pulling a rabbit out of his hat! Instrument = Lead Vocalist. He also plays some guitar and keyboard. Shirt Color = Yellow Sam Wiggle In the Wiggle and Learn series, Sam is the new Yellow Wiggle. People might recognize him as a Wiggly Dancer and Professor Singalottasonga in the earlier series. Instrument = Lead Vocals, and sometimes the Trumpet. Shirt Color = Yellow Anthony Wiggle Anthony is one hungry Wiggle. His hobbies include eating and generally being silly. His appetite can get in the way at times. He usually sings and dances with Greg. In the newer seasons, he also loves to use a low bass voice and to roll his r's. Instrument = Drums. He also plays some guitar and some other instruments. Shirt Color = Blue Murray Wiggle The calmest guy in the band, Murray enjoys playing his red guitar, and is quite impressed by Greg and his magic. One time he even used Greg's magic properly! Murray also loves to speculate on different things in life, like what if we didn't have elbows. He also loves to play well known guitar riffs. Instrument = Red Guitar. Shirt Color = Red Jeff Wiggle Jeff is full of energy when he's awake, but he tends to fall asleep on the spot, and it takes the entire audience to shout "Wake up, Jeff!" It can be hard to keep him awake. In fact, he spent a whole episode asleep once! He may be the goofiest of them all. Instrument = Keyboard and Accordion. Shirt Color = Purple Emma Wiggle Emma is the first female wiggle and she loves to wear bows. She replaces Greg and Sam in the newer episodes. Instrument = Drums. Shirt Color = Yellow Simon Wiggle Simon replaces Murray in the newer episodes. He always sings in a low bass tone and plays a game called Simon Says. Instrument = Lead Vocals. Shirt Color = Red Lachy Wiggle Lachy is Jeff's replacement for newer episodes and still does everything Jeff does like sleeping. He sometimes sings when Simon's not singing. Instrument = Keyboard. Shirt Color = Purple Supporting Characters Captain Feathersword Often considered the Fifth Wiggle, Captain Feathersword is a friendly pirate who has a sword made out of feathers so he can tickle people. He's best known for doing improvisational acts and voices, thanks in part to his Magic Buttons on his vest. He greets everyone with "Ahoy There, Me Hearties!" Dorothy the Dinosaur Dorothy is a human-sized dinosaur who wears a floppy white hat, and loves daydreaming in her rose garden. She has loved roses since she was a young child. And not just to smell them, but she uses them to make rosy treats! She is also the only female among the main Wiggles group, and has an infectious giggle. In Australia, she even has her own TV show! Wags the Dog Wags is a cute dog about the size of the Wiggles. In the early seasons, he only speaks to the audience, and woofs for Captain Feathersword and the other Wiggles. But in the later seasons, he talks like everyone else. He's a very resourceful inventor, and he also likes to goof on Captain Feathersword, refusing to just obey. He's also in charge of the three little pups known as the Wagettes. Henry the Octopus Henry leads his own underwater band. He joins the Wiggles in a bunch of different songs and dances. In the early seasons, he is both a puppet and a mascot. His favorite word is "Bree-Boop!" which is like Aloha in Octopus language. Officer Beaples: She's dressed like a Keystone Kop, and mostly mimes. Wiggle Dancers: The men and women who dance around in marching band uniforms. They start appearing in the musical numbers from the Lights, Camera, Action, Wiggles season. Friendly Pirate Crew: The men and women who dance around and help Captain Feathersword during one of his featured skits. Many of the folks are Wiggle Dancers, but some are dedicated crew members representing a worldwide populace. Child Dancers: Since the show is all about the kids, many of the videos feature children dancing and participating in activities. About Playhouse Disney: This is the morning segment of the Disney Channel in the USA that's geared for pre-schoolers and toddlers. Because Disney is privately owned, they only air commercials for their own Disney shows and products, but during the Playhouse Disney segments, The Wiggles shows run about 25 minutes straight with NO commercials! Disney used to run the Wiggles at all sorts of morning hours seven days a week. In its prime, the Wiggles should show up from two to three episodes a day: 6am for Wiggly TV (series 1-2), 10am for The Wiggles Show and Lights, Camera, Action episodes (series 3-4), and 7am for the Breakfast with Bear segment. In series 5, The Wiggles ran at 7am weekdays, and a different time on weekend mornings. In series 6, the Wiggles ran at 7am weekdays and weekends but in January 5, 2009, the Wiggles ran at 11:30am weekdays and 7am weekends. Reruns can be found on PBS Sprout. Submission Guidelines Although the Wiggles guide may seem fairly complete, there are always plenty of fun things to add. Here's generally where things are categorized. Notes: - List of DVD Bonus Features, including Lights Camera Action Wiggles episodes. - Official original release dates for the Australia videos, US videos, and companion albums. Awards won. Differences between Australia and US version. - Novelties and debuts (set design, wardrobe, song, dancer) - consider chronological or Disney TV series order. - One-shot appearances by non-TV industry guests, lists of children and families, lists of dancers. - Family and Friends - whenever the Wiggles bring in their non-cast/crew family members (e.g. Anthony's wife, kids, or dogs), and friends into their videos and features. - Debuts in Australia, UK, or Canada if traceable. Trivia: - On-screen song and guest debuts by name, such as Murray introducing Clare, or Anthony introducing Alfonso. - Instrument details. Allusions: Passing references to pop culture icons like Elvis or The Beatles. For example, Racing to the Rainbow has a flurry of Elvis references, and the cover of Let's Eat is designed to look like Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts band. Australian regional sayings and jargon like "slippery dip", but do not add common ones like "G'day" or "Beauty, mate" or "barbie" Song arrangements not directly explained (e.g. Hands on My Head). Cast: If you are adding voiceovers for any of the mascots, for example: Wags the Dog (Mic Conway) Dorothy the Dinosaur (Carolyn Ferrie, Jacqueline Field, Zoe Velez) Henry the Octopus (Jeff Fatt, Paul Paddick, Mario Martinez-Diaz), please confirm they are the correct person in the season, and that the mascot actually said something in that episode. I count the dancers as Recurring Stars / Guest Stars if: 1) They are credited at the end of the show. 2) They participated in the skits, intros, or closers. I do not count the dancer if all they did was appear in the pre-produced video footage. DO NOT ADD - Nitpicking any time the Wiggles don't really play their instruments or lip sync. It is a given that sometimes they are more concerned about dancing and showing the actions rather than making an acoustically accurate performance. Save those goofs for only the major ones like showing two different guitars for the same concert song. - Self-evident crew credits like Music: The Wiggles (Band) or Creator: The Wiggles (Band) or Opening Performance: The Wiggles (Band). Look for explicitly listed credits like Musical Arrangement: Anthony Field instead. - Cast roles that should be listed in the credits (e.g. Kamahl guest stars as himself). - Special Guest Stars - add them as regular Guest Stars. - Dancers on replayed video footage. They did not participate in the video. - This is the second/third/fourth visit by guest star. It is self-evident from the credits that guests appear multiple times. - Any nitpicks on miscellaneous Wiggles songs that aren't featured in the TV series or videos. - Explanations on nursery rhymes or common pop culture. Common questions about the guide Q: What is with the titles for Lights, Camera, Action, Wiggles? How come they don't correspond to my videos? A: In the original Australian broadcast, the show was 54 episodes of 11 minutes each, and their titles were just Episode 1 to Episode 54. When it was broadcast in the US for Disney, they mainly combined 2 episodes into one, and posted their own 3 digit production numbers. There are NO official titles for the US version. The titles here are arbitrarily written by the editor to best reflect the theme of the combined episode. Q: Can I add a Wiggles video to a guide? A: Yes, Just let me know in advance and I can give you an episode number of where it should fit in. I am not accepting 2-pack releases as new entries, but you can make a Note of such things if they are important. Q: Why is Series Two listed first? A: Although Series Two was produced after Series One, it aired on Disney channel before Series One. Q: What about Wiggly Waffle? A: Wiggly Waffle, while it has new videos, is not an actual TV series, but The Wiggles hosting a block of various shows. If you want Wiggly Waffle on tv.com, you could send in a request for a new show, but my opinion is that it is a very difficult series to maintain. Q: What about other Wiggles produced shows? A: Dorothy the Dinosaur Show from the late 2000s has a guide now. If you want Kingdom of Paramithi, send a request to add the show on tv.com. Q: Why are the episode names and numbers for Season 4, 5 and 6 different than the ones from the boxsets and Australian iTunes? A: The names are from when they aired on Disney. Australia used different names and aired in production order.moreless

Character Bios & Super Powers: Robin was formerly the sidekick of the legendary vigilante, Batman, Robin has moved beyond sidekick status to become the Gung-Ho leader of the Teen Titans. With no powers of his own, Robin relies on nothing but his wits and brains to solve problems. After years of training with his former partner, Robin has become fearless and determined, giving it everything he has and fighting to the death. He also has a full loaded utility belt, which includes a Bo-Staff, Birdarangs, Smoke Pellets, Freeze Disks, Explosive Bombs, Electro Disks, and a Grappling Hook. Robin has grown to be a very talented fighter when battling enemies by using his Speed, Martial Arts Skills, Intellect, and reflexes. Robin's primary goal is to find out what this criminal mastermind "Slade" is up to. He even disguised himself as a master thief, Red X, to try and trick Slade into revealing his plans, but unfortunatley Robin's plan backfired, and Slade knew the whole time that Robin was X. Robin's determination to catch Slade even caused him to be caught by Slade and was forced to be his Apprentice in order to save his friends lives. Ever since Slade's 'apparent' death, Robin has been haunted with one question: Is Slade still alive? Super Powers: He has no powers, but he is a very highly trained Martial Artist, has outstanding speed, Awesome reflexes, an intellegent mind, and a full loaded utility belt including Birdarangs, a Grappling Hook, a Bo-Staff, Freeze Disks, Explosive Bombs, and Smoke Pellets. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Starfire is the peacekeeping one, she hates to see the others fighting. She often appears weird to the others with her alien customs and lack of knowledge about Earth. She also has a crush on Robin even though she doesn't show it much. Super Powers: Flight, great strength, star-bolts (energy blasts from her hands), eye lasers (from the episode "Transformation" and onwards). -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Beast Boy is the joker of the team, he enjoys playing pranks and doing things just for a laugh, he ends up as the target of many pranks himself as well (mostly by Cyborg). Unable to take anything seriously, he makes jokes and one-liners even when fighting Supervillians, Beastboy seems to have an interest in the character Terra, who joins the team for a short while. Super Powers: Can change into any animal. However it is unclear exactly where the limit of his power is because he doesn't seem able to transform into any made-up animals or any alien creatures (except in "Betrothed"), but he can become a dinosaur or other extinct animal. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Raven is the mysterious one, she reveals little about herself and doesn't let anyone into her room. Raven has to remain calm in any situation as her powers are driven by her emotions (a bit like Starfire's). We discovered in "Birthmark" that Raven has been destined to end the world since she born. Super Powers: Telekinesis (this includes moving herself to levitate), she can create solid shapes (hands, shields etc...), out of dark energy she can also pass through walls (although she has only done this 3 times), telepathy (see "Haunted"), teleportation (as seen in "Deception"), she can also unleash her soul-self (as she did in "Nevermore" and "Aftershock (1)"), she can stop time (as shown in "Birthmark"), and can send people to alternate dimensions, like she threatened to do to Beast Boy in "Every Dog Has His Day." -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Cyborg is a talented engineer with a passion for vehicles, he built the Titans' car and the submarine and is very protective of both of them. Except when it comes to the car, Cyborg is pretty laid back, he plays a lot of video games. Super Powers: Great strength, Enhanced Vision, can turn right arm into a sonic cannon, a chain saw, or a hand grapple, has various built in gadgets including a foot laser, a flashlight, a detachable fore arm, and a welding torch. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Terra was the strange new comer. She didn't step in till the second season, episode "Terra." At first, she was welcomed with open arms and gladly stood beside the Titans fighting Slade. But sadly, she turned the Titans over to Slade and revealed she had been working for him since she left Titan's Tower in "Terra." But she redeemed herself by turning on Slade at a peak moment and presumably killed him at the cost of her own life. Super Powers: Terra has the ability of telekinesis. She can move anything made from the earth. She usually gets transported by a moving stone. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Slade is a criminal mastermind whom is very determined to take over the city and destroy the Teen Titans. Patient, cunning, slick, and doing whatever it takes to get what he wants, Slade is easily the toughest foe the Titans have ever faced. Slade often hires other villains to do his dirty work. His first plan was revealed when he launched a "Chronotan Detonator" - a device that can freeze time while we know it. Robin went out to catch him, while the others went for the detonator - but the detonator was a fake to shoot probes into the other Titans. Slade forced Robin to commit crimes as his apprentice or he will activate the probes and destroy the Titans. Luckily, the Titans found out about Slade's plans and defeated him. He later returned and captured the Titans newest "friend" Terra. He tought her how to control her powers and sent her to spy on the Titans and give him everything he'd ever need to know about them - codes, weaknesses, strengths, everything. In his last battle with them, Terra turned back on him and threw him into a pit of lava. He was presumed dead by the Titans, but Robin couldn't help wonder if he was really dead or not considering that his body was never found. Robin got his answer after Cinderblock busted out of jail and he was hurled into a vast forest: Slade was standing right in front of him. And when the other Titans said that they couldn't see him and that he wasn't really there, Robin decided that he was the only one who could stop him. Slade had almost killed Robin, but luckily Robin found out that he wasn't really there and was only in his mind and stopped his nemesis once and for all. The Titans learn that before his last act of cruelity, Slade pulled off one last trick -- the dust in his mask made Robin able to see, hear, and feel him even though he wasn't really there. But the dust didn't trigger on it's own -- someone activated it... but who? A while later, on Raven's birthday, Slade mysteriously arose from the ashes of the volcano Terra made and found out the secret of Raven's birthday -- Trigon. Trigon gave him ultimate powers and he headed out to show Raven the Prophecy that was to come of her destroying the world and Trigon being released into the real world. Raven may have stopped him, but he vows to Trigon that he will fulfill that Prophecy at all costs. Super Powers: Expert martial artist; genius I.Q.; skilled in engineering, robotics, biology, and invention; possibly has moderate skills in sorcery (as shown in "Forces of Nature") uses various weapons, most notably cybernetic strength-enhancing body armor. In "Birthmark," he gained the abilities to manipulate fire, fly, melt through objects, and create fire walls. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Trigon is a giant evil red demon who was banished from the real world, though he has the power to send his voice and energy into the real world. On Raven's birthday, he gave Slade his mystical powers and sent him to show Raven a glance at the horrible Prophecy that was foretold on her birthday by revealing the birthmarks on her that are only visible on her birthday. The Prophecy was of her destroying the world and summoning Trigon back into the real world. Slade vows to Trigon that he will fulfill that prophecy at all costs. Super Powers: Heat Eyes, Manipulate Fire, Superstrength, others not known as of yet. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Brother Blood is the new ruler of the H.I.V.E., who didn't debut until Season 3. After Slade's 'apparent' death in "Aftershock (2)," Brother Blood became the new ruler of the H.I.V.E. acedemy. Brother Blood was able to hypnotize people into helping the H.I.V.E. to dirty work. When Brother Blood found out that his student 'Stone' was Cyborg and was trying to spy on his plans, he was able to talk Cyborg into helping. Cyborg tricked Blood and backfired on him, but this surely wasn't the end of him He later made another H.I.V.E. fortress underwater, and what Cyborg didn't know was that when he was at his school, Brother Blood downloaded his blueprints that gave him acess to anything he'd ever need to know about Cyborg, and was also able to create a doomsday device that could flood the whole city. The Titans were able to defeat him again, but he got away again. Brother Blood later arrived in Steel City, where he hypnotized the new Titans East members -- Aqualad, Speedy, Bumblebee, and Mas Y Menos and made them create a new Titans Tower there and lure Cyborg into it. When Cyborg had fallen for the hypnotized Titans East's trap, Blood had the perfect time to strike and put his master plan to work -- making himself a cyborg as well. This new cyborg form would give him equal powers to Cyborg and was able to take Cyborg down easily and was eagerly ripping through his mechanical body trying to find what made him resist his mind control, but good triumphed over evil and Cyborg was able to defeat Blood once and for all. He now serves time in prison. Super Powers: Expert fighter, high I.Q, and many mental powers including mind control. Blood also seems to be able to create small force fields with his hands and has the ability to walk on water ("Titans East (1)"). After Blood converted himself to cyborg, he gained super strength, energy blasts, and the ability to teleport over short distances. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Red X is a mysterious Super Thief with tons of special abilities, who jumped into town, robbing strange micro-chips. Red X turned out to be Robin, and his real plan was to trick Slade into revealing his plans to him, so he could stop him once and for all. After failing to capture Slade, Robin sealed the Red X suit into a vault. Later, a strange man nabbed it from the vault and gained control of the Red X powers, and began robbing banks, etc. Robin planned to nab X and take care of the problem that he started. Unfortuanatley, X got away, but Robin was able to steal X's belt so he could do no harm.
