Logline

Beast Boy discovers he can transform into an adult man.[1]

Synopsis

Upset over rating

Beast Boy, Cyborg, and Robin are disappointed that Death Toilet 3 is rated M-45+.

Outside Jump City Cinemas 12, Beast Boy, Cyborg, and Robin are ecstatic to see the new movie, Death Toilet 3. Starfire expresses concern that she would not be let in since she hasn't seen the previous movies. Raven glances at the poster where she sees that the movie is rated 45+, meaning none of them will be allowed in. Disappointed, the Titans decide to go back to Titans Tower. Robin complains about who decides which people can see what movie and Starfire answers adults. Cyborg says that adults think they can do whatever they want because of their height advantage and boring professions. Beast Boy claims that when he's an adult, he won't be an adult, but Raven tells him that something changes once people become adults. They lose their will for fun, and get boring jobs working for "the Man." Starfire asks about the Man's identity, but Raven says that nobody knows who he is, but that he's coming for all of them soon.

Robin chides Raven for bumming them out, and Cyborg suggests that they play a goofy game as they're still kids. Beast Boy suggests playing Random Animal Rally, in which he transforms into the animals the Titans name in rapid succession. The Titans all offer animals for Beast Boy to transform into and when Cyborg tells him to "hold on, man," Beast Boy transforms into an adult man. He says that he didn't know he could transform into an adult and Robin guesses that a human does constitute as an animal. Cyborg teases Beast Boy for looking like a lame dad, and Starfire wonders why Beast Boy has hair in all parts of his body, but his head and asks if that is common with adults. Raven warns Beast Boy to switch back before he ends up with a car payment and a loveless marriage.

Titans in cinemas

After Beast Boy discovers he can transform into an adult man, he takes the Teen Titans to watch the movie and do other adult things.

Robin realizes that, as long as Beast Boy is an adult, he would be able to take them to the movies. The Titans return to Jump City Cinemas 12 and Beast Boy disguises his voice to that of an adult's in order to purchase tickets. Inside the cinemas, the Titans cheer for the movie and Beast Boy says they would have missed out on it if he wasn't an adult. Cyborg says that being an adult may not be so bad, and Robin wonders what else the Titans can do by having an adult around. The Titans head to a pizza truck where Robin tries to buy pizza only to see that his wallet is empty. Beast Boy pulls out three credit cards and the Titans eat a whole stack of pizzas. He then rents a car and gives permission for the Titans to get tattoos.

The Titans return to the tower where they celebrate the night's events. Raven repeats her suggestion for Beast Boy to transform back into a kid before the Man forces him to get a job, but Cyborg and Robin wonder if getting a job is really that bad since the other parts of being an adult were fun. Starfire heads off to sleep and wishes everyone good dreams, but Beast Boy says that he's staying up to do cool grown up stuff and leaves the tower. Cyborg says that adults are the coolest. The next day, Starfire asks Beast Boy if he wants to join her in eating sugary cereal, but Beast Boy declines as he has to watch his calories. Robin, Cyborg, and Raven enter the kitchen and Robin asks why he is still an adult. Beast Boy says that someone has to make a living and that he's late for work. Cyborg suggests that he turns back into a kid, but Beast Boy shouts at them to finish his chores before he gets back or they'll be grounded. Raven says that she was afraid something like this would happen and believes that the Man must have gotten to him while he was out last night. Robin suggests that they follow him.

Titans infiltrate The Man

In order to save Beast Boy, the Teen Titans infiltrate his employer, the Man.

The Titans follow Beast Boy to The Man Incorporated, a corporation owned by the Man. Starfire wonders why Beast Boy would seek employment in a boring company and Raven answers that he's drawn to it like moths to a flame. They decide to sneak in and beat up an adult to take his place by disguising themselves in his suit. The Titans board the elevator and spot computers projecting the image of the Man, who orders the adults to work. Cyborg says that they have to get Beast Boy out of the company, but Raven says that he won't come willingly so long as he is influenced by the Man. Starfire suggests engulfing him in flames and Robin agrees to burn him to death, but Raven informs him that she meant get him fired. He agrees to that plan and, on a piece of paper, draws an insult to the Man. Cyborg uses his retractable arm to place the paper on Beast Boy's files. A tube collects the stack of papers and the machine checks off every page until it reaches the drawing, deeming it an error. One of the Man's computers rises in front of Beast Boy and reports that he has no choice but to fire him. The Titans cheer, but the Man clarifies that he meant with actual fire.

Robin inspires the adults

Robin inspires the adults to live their lives after rescuing them from the Man.

The Titans reveal themselves and attack the Man, but to no avail. He yells that The Man Incorporated is a place of business and that they're not allowed to be there. He summons the Guardians of the Status Quo to attack the Titans, but they hide in another cubicle. Starfire wonders how teenagers can battle a business and Robin suggests by doing what teenagers do best. He plays music on his iPod and puts on headphones and loiters by the Man's computers. The Man yells at him to pay attention, but Robin simply turns up the music. Starfire and Cyborg begin texting on their phones and having meaningless conversations, frustrating the Man further. Raven reads a magazine depicting hot boys and the Man asks if she wants to do something with her life, but she says "whatever" and puts her magazine into one of the tubes. The system reports an error and the Man explodes, snapping the adults out of their trance. Beast Boy returns to the form of a teenager and claims that he'll never be an adult again. Raven asks what they're going to do with all the adults and Robin decides to inspire them. He tells the adults that the Man has been defeated and that they can return to their home and families. Starfire asks Robin how the adults will provide for their families, but he shrugs it off, saying it's not his problem as he's just a kid.

Trivia

General

  • This episode was originally set to air on 2 April 2015, but was replaced with "Two Bumble Bees and a Wasp," which resulted in its clip and images being released earlier.[2] It was then reported to air on 2 July 2015 before being rescheduled again.[1]
  • This is the third episode, after "Opposites" and "Birds", to be released onto online services before its official release.
  • This episode was the first to air during a week of brand new episodes to celebrate the series' 100th episode.
  • This is the sixteenth episode in the series to begin at night.
  • Beast Boy is revealed to be able to change the size of his animal transformations.
  • Beast Boy's full name is revealed to be Garfield Mark Logan.
  • Beast Boy's credit cards are made up of images from previous episodes. One is an outside shot of Titans Tower, another is based on the eye catch in "Halloween" when the Titans are edited onto Mount Rushmore, and the third is an eye catch of the masculine versions of Beast Boy and Cyborg from "Caramel Apples".

Continuity

  • Robin tells Raven, "thanks for bumming us out." The Titans previously discussed that Raven was a bummer because of her intelligence in "Knowledge."
  • Beast Boy calls Raven mama again.
  • Raven's tattoo is of the Pretty Pretty Pegasus characters that the Titans helped in "Friendship."
    • Her tattoo also continues showing Raven's love for the series.
  • Bat-O's appear again.
  • Robin listens to "Robin's Jam," a recurring track on the series that was also heard in "Driver's Ed" and "Road Trip."

References

  • The Howie Scream can be heard when Death Toilet shoots a toilet off the building.
  • Robin's tattoo is of Starfire, based on her original design in the New Teen Titans comics.
  • Raven's magazine, Teen Issue, has pictures of the Joker, Fix-It, Darkseid, and Green Arrow, and the cover is decorated with pictures of Kid Flash, Jinx, and Batgirl. It also says Iss. 52, a reference to the New 52.
  • The office Beast Boy works at is reminiscent of the office Winston Smith works at in George Orwell's 1984.
  • Death Toilet's hairstyle and eyepatch are a nod to Snake Plissken, Kurt Russell's character in Escape from New York.
