  • Inside Cyborg

    Beast Boy downloads a new vidoe game and attempts to play it on Cyborgs computer but uses his recharger intead of his computer. Cyborg get infected with a virus and the Titans reluctantly seek the assistance of Gizmo in getting rid of the virus. The only was to cure Cyborg is to go in and kill the virus where it lives. Gizmo shrinks himself down and enter Cyborg but not where he wanted. Cyborg ecsapes and starts to terriorize the city. Gizmo finds out that Beast Boy taged along to help. As Beast Boy and Gizmo go furthur into Cyborg the more viruses they enconter. While moving along Cyborgs red blood cells mistake them for the virus and attack them luckly they manage to get away. Cyborg targets the cities communications. Gizmo doesnt know if he can stop the virus in time or even if he can stop the virus. Gizmo tells Beast Boy that if they cant stop the virus than they have to stop Cyborg. Finally they get to the mother virus and Gizmo runs away. Beast Boy multiplies and stops Cyborg right before he destroys the communication for the city and right before Gizmo destroys Cyborg.moreless
  • What happened to Gizmo after he was stuck in the Beast Boy goo? Not a very important episode in the series.

    It is better than Deception and X in terms of entertainment, but above all a filler. You can watch it or skip it and it will not affect anything. Basically Cyborg gets infected by a weird virus and goes crazy. Bonkers. Okay. This episode is more Beast Boy than Cyborg, although Cyborg gets things happening to him. Of course, there is a Gizmo to make this episode more technological, but not playing a part in anything else. I suppose, or I hope, that the Titans went back to save Gizmo and thank him for his trouble, but I think not.moreless
  • Raven pulled a beetlejuice on gizmo. Funny but it would be better if you could see her face (not the shadow) and gizmo cowerin in fear.

    OK. I thought that this episode had one part that was a little bit out of character for Raven. The only part that was,was when she was convincing gizmo to help fix cyborg, she had to pull a Beetlejuice on him just to pursuade him, or in this case Scare the living daylights out of him. I thought that it was rather funny when she did that. But I honestly think that it would have been better if they had done a side view so that you would be able to see her face instead of the shadow and gizmo cowering in fear.moreless
  • Beast Boy uploads a virus into Cyborg's system recharger.

    Ok so at the beggining of this episode Beast Boy gets a copy of this videogame and puts it into Cyborg's "computer" which turns out to be his system recharger. So Cyborg uploads a virus. If the titans don't stop him, Cyborg will destroy the electrical devices for miles of land. Beast Boy and Gizmo(who was forced to help) have to go inside Cyborg and defeat the virus while Raven, Starfire, and Robin try to hold him down. At the last moment thanks to Beast Boy's quick thinking they stop him and expel the virus at last. It was a pretty good episode. It was a little funny when Cyborg started to hallucinate.moreless
  • A comedy episode with Beast Boy and Cyborg as main characters.

    PLOT IN SHORT: Beast Boy finally got his hands on the newest vidoe game that he wanted for so long, sadly none of the computers in the Titans Tower seem to be powerful enough play it. Having no alternative, the shape-shifter decided to make a desperate move and sneaks into Cyborg's room to use his computer. Things get bad however when it turns out the game had some sort of virus and now Cy is running mindlessly through the tower, having that virus inside his own circuits! Knowing nothing of computers, the other Titans decide to make a desperate move... and ask Gizmo for help!

    Overall this is an episode for laughs only... but the humor in it is on a rather low level. You might enjoy watching this one, but it's one of the few eps in the series that I don't feel like watching more then once.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (12)

    • Since Cyborg developed an appetite for non-food items, it could be correct to say that the computer virus caused him to develop pica.

    • The virus had Cyborg hallucinating food that he loved, one food that has been well established that Cyborg loves in the series are eggs. However, in this episode it seems that Cyborg seems to hate eggs actually.

    • In the episode "Overdrive," it shows that Starfire is stronger than Cyborg. Why couldn't Starfire's alien strength, Robin's strength, and Raven's telekinesis pull Cyborg from the main communication?

    • Raven's hair becomes a lighter purple twice in this episode.

    • How was a computer virus, something that exists online, able to smash a physical weapon such as Gizmo's gun? How was it even able to touch and fire lasers at Beast Boy?

    • Cyborg claims that half his brain was cybernetic in "Deception," but in this episode, his brain appears to be all cybernetic.

    • In the episodes, "Apprentice (1)" & "Apprentice (2)," Slade has a screen that shows all of the Titans' blood streams. Cyborg's blood stream looks like all of the others (red and what not), with the blood cells flowing through, as well. When Beast Boy and Gizmo enter Cyborg's blood stream, it all looks cybernetic and such, and there aren't very many blood cells (if any) flowing through his blood stream.

    • When Gizmo puts the machine that would shut down Cyborg "for good," in a far shot, the machine is slightly smaller than what Gizmo put it on. And in a close-up shot, the machine fits perfectly on what Gizmo put it on.

    • When Cyborg eats the Mumbo clock and the other stuff in the market place area, the blue, technologic part of his neck is gone for that shot.

    • While inside Cyborg, Gizmo and Beast Boy encounter what Gizmo identifies as white blood cells. However, they have the distinct disc shape of red blood cells.

    • How could Beast Boy talk when he was an amoeba? Amoebas don't have vocal cords.

    • When Robin shoots Gizmo into Cyborg, look closely, Cyborg's red eye is normal for a split-second.

  • QUOTES (24)

    • Cyborg: Hey, who wants to go out for whoppers? Whoppers! Whoppers! Whoppers! Whoppers! Whoppers!

    • Starfire: I know, he is an evil villain...
      (Cyborg has a weird look in his eyes)
      Starfire: ... who speaks the mean words and is not our friend, but still I wonder, what became of Gizmo?
      (goes to blob of snot)
      Gizmo: (in background) Razzle Frazzle Titans! (comes on screen being chased by drones) CRRRRRRUUUUUUUUUDDDDDDD!
      (end credits)

    • Beast Boy: This cell may stink at math, but I can still multiply.

    • Gizmo: (Examining Cyborg) Ewwwwww! Your friend is thrashed. What kind of sludge-sniffing idiot gets himself infected with the Endzone Virus?
      (Titans glare at Beast Boy, who shrinks to a small size)
      Beast Boy: He had some help.

    • Cyborg: Hey, did y'all know there are 456 varieties of yams? I like yams! Yams, yams, yams, yams, yams, yams, yams....

    • Robin: What is going on?
      Cyborg: Oh, I'll tell you what's going on. This is the best peanut brittle I've ever tasted! (Cyborg starts licking the sofa, as Raven & Starfire exchange puzzled looks)

    • Cyborg: (Sees Robin as a steak) We need gravy! AND PLENTY OF IT!

    • Robin: Take it easy, Cyborg. It's us.
      Raven: We're here to take you home.
      Starfire: You remember who we are, yes?
      (Cyborg sees the Titans as eggs)
      Cyborg: You're the nasty egg people who stole all my waffles!

    • Cyborg: Whatever got into me, it's out.
      Robin: Beast Boy! He did it!
      Cyborg: (Notices a green stain on his arm) Aww, man! That better not be who I think it is!

    • Cyborg: Oh! Star! Remember that purple, wiggly Tamaranian pie thingie you made that was full of bugs?
      Starfire: My stewed Grunthmek which made you physically sick?
      Cyborg: You gotta cook up some of that!

    • Gizmo: No stinkin' way! I'm not fixing that overgrown bucket of robo-scrunge, and there's not a thing that you grot-sniffers could ever say or do that'll make me... (Gizmo tries to leave, but Raven appears in front of him, and takes off her hood, revealing an evil looking monster face from Gizmo's viewpoint; Gizmo turns back, looking very shaken) I'll help...

    • Beast Boy: (After Gizmo has attacked the virus) Yeah! We kicked its virus butt!
      Gizmo: Wake up, pinhead! That was only a drone. There could be thousands of drones. We have to delete the viral core.
      Beast Boy: (Thinks fast) Uh, I knew that. I was just, uh, testing you! And you passed!

    • Cyborg: (Wakes up) PIE! (Robin drops the tranquillizer gun containing microscopic-sized Gizmo, then looks and sees Starfire and Raven trying to restrain Cyborg; Robin shoots at Cyborg with the tranquillizer gun and scores a direct hit) HOT LINKS!! Oh, yeah.... (Crashes through a wall)
      Starfire: The injection was sucessful?
      Robin: I think so. (On the communicator) Gizmo, report. Are you inside Cyborg?
      Gizmo: Oh, I'm inside him all right. But I'm not in his brain - I'm in his butt.

    • Cyborg: (After eating dozens of money notes, then spitting them out) NO, NOT MACARONI!

    • Cyborg: (Munching on a table) Who ordered this pizza? It's cheese-tastic!

    • Cyborg: (To a portable money machine) You can keep your sprinkles, I NEED RASPBERRY FILLINGS!

    • Gizmo: What the.... blob boy?
      Beast Boy: I'm here to help.
      Gizmo: Oh, lucky stinkin' me, a goof-bag with a nucleus for a brain.

    • Starfire: Why does he speak of subterranean vegetables?
      Gizmo: (Sneers) You don't know crud. The virus is messing with his central processor, you know, his brain.

    • Gizmo: (To Robin, angrily) Nice shootin', sporfbrain! You kludgeheads have any idea how long it's gonna take me to get from this tin can's can all the way UP TO HIS BRAIN?!

    • Robin: We need to stop him before he hurts himself... or somebody else.
      Raven: Or an innocent street sign...
      (Cyborg devours a poor, defenseless street sign)

    • Beast Boy: I may not be smart enough to do everything, but I'm dumb enough to try ANYTHING!

    • Cyborg: OOOH!! You know what would be good? Let's all go out for WAFFLES! RAVEN!! You like WAFFLES, DON'TCHA?
      Raven: (Dryly) More than life itself.

    • Cyborg: (After recovering) Ooh, my stomach! I feel like I ate a tire!
      Raven: That's a distinct possibility.

      Cyborg: It's my room... what are you doing here?
      Beast Boy: (Short pause) Just practicing my nose whistling... (Whistles)

  • NOTES (12)


    • Yams
      The scene where Cyborg says: "I like yams! Yams, yams, yams, yams, yams, yams, yams..." is a spoof on the famous Monthy Python sketch: The Spam.

    • Raven: Move
      If you notice, Raven clearly pulls a Beetlejuice move when she convinces Gizmo to help out with destroying the virus that Beast Boy put in Cyborg.

    • Cyborg: Virus
      The virus that invades Cyborg does resemble Keramon (with it's wavy antennae, manic eyes, general body shape, and coloring effects used) from Digimon: The Movie's second segment (Our War Game in Japan). The scene in the end where Beast Boy and Gizmo are in Cyborg's brain surrounded by thousands of copies of the virus mimics the scene where WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon are in the Internet, surrounded by thousands upon thousands of Diaboromons.

    • Robin: (Throws net at Cyborg, but wraps around parking meter instead)
      When Robin throws the net at Cyborg and it gets wrapped around the parking meter, for a moment, it resembles the sticks with the spider webbing on them that Fiona gives to Shrek.

    • Beast Boy: Mega Monkies 4!
      Could this be any connection to Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!, a show that Greg Cipes (voice of Beast Boy) also stars in?

    • Episode Plot: Inspiration
      Fantastic Voyage was a 1966 sci-fi movie in which a team of doctors travel inside a patient in microscopic form to destroy a lethal tumor. Several television show episodes, cartoon episodes, and other movies have been inspired by this cult classic, this episode of Teen Titans merely being the latest.

    • Cyborg: Waffles!
      Cyborg's comments on waffles sound extremely close to Donkey's in Shrek.
