It’s safe to say that we’re all going a little batty with all the self-isolation and social distancing. Fear not, for new episodes DC Super Hero Girls are now airing on Cartoon Network that include the first appearance of the Tween Titans!
No, that’s not a typo. A decidedly different iteration of the Teen Titans team will be debuting on the DCSHG cartoon. The Tween Titans are voiced by:
Robin — Keith Ferguson
Starfire— Grey Griffin
Cyborg— Phil Lamarr
Beast Boy — Kari Wahlgren
Raven — Tara Strong
They may look sweet and innocent, but trust me that looks can be deceiving.
Other episodes will feature Casey Krinsky (voiced by Lara Jill Miller), a relatively obscure villain who only appeared in two issues of the Jason Rusch/Firestorm comic. Plus a demon (voiced by Steve Blum) that debuted in the first issue of the Zatanna comic written by Paul Dini makes the jump to animation.

Sunday, April 12
4:00 p.m. (ET/PT) “#TweenTitans”
Written by Tim Sheridan
Directed by Natalie Wetzig
Jessica Cruz is hired by billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne to chaperone young Dick Grayson’s Metropolis birthday bash and brings Karen Beecher along to help, but the girls get more than they bargained for when the TWEEN party guests reveal their TITANic personalities.
Saving the day is super easy when you’re a Super Hero. But stopping evil in its tracks while keeping up grades and managing a social life, all before curfew? Ugh. That’s, like, super tough. DC Super Hero Girls are more than crime-fighting besties, they’re a diverse group of dedicated super-teens! Working together, they fight the battles of Metropolis and the battles of growing, up all at the same time. Always discovering new ways to control their powers and abilities, these awesome girls are quickly learning (sometimes the hard way) how to deal with the super challenges of being a teenage Super Hero.
We all have the power to make a difference. Just make sure to use it for good or you’ll find yourself up against those tenacious teens, the DC Super Hero Girls.
The first thirteen episodes of DC Super Hero Girls are now available to stream on Netflix in the US.
