Logline

When he transforms into "Fleshy Guy," Cyborg discovers the joy and pain of being human.[1]

Synopsis

Raven transforming Cyborg

Raven uses her magic to transform Cyborg into a real boy again.

Cyborg, Beast Boy, Raven, and Starfire are relaxing on lounge chairs as Beat Box plays soothing music. Robin, on the other hands, zips back and forth with supplies and announces that he installed a hot tub to be used after training. However, Starfire and Raven ignore him and enter the tub. Robin orders them to get out, but Beast Boy, as a hippopotamus, jumps into the pool. Robin turns to Cyborg and thanks him for listening, but Cyborg states that the only reason he didn't jump in was because he can't enjoy hot tubs as he is part robot. He shares with the Titans that he sometimes wishes to be a real boy again, but claims that there is no way until Raven interrupts and says that she'll be able to do it with her magic. At the urging of the Titans, Raven list all the things she can do with magic. After four days, Cyborg tells Raven to make him a real boy and she zaps him with magic.

Beast Boy volunteers to be Fleshy Guy's guide

Beast Boy volunteers to be Fleshy Guy's guide.

Following the procedure, Cyborg's robot parts come off. Cyborg thanks Raven, who attempts to warn him that his nervous system is much sensitive compared to his robot body. Cyborg ignores her and jumps into the hot tub, but quickly jumps back out complaining about how hot the hot tub was. Raven informs him that humans feel much more pain than robots. Robin notes that Cyborg can't be called Cyborg anymore and Beast Boy dubs him "Fleshy Guy," which is immediately accepted by the others as his new name. Fleshy Guy tells the Titans that he doesn't want to go back to being a cyborg, but has a lot of things to learn as a real boy. Beast Boy volunteers to be his guide and takes him to Fleshy School. There, Fleshy Guy, learns about the skeleton of a human body, how to get check-ups, how to put his feet into sandals, and how to put on deodorant. Beast Boy tells Fleshy Guy that he will be able to enjoy food more as a human and he consumes a large amount of food, ending with a dish Beast Boy calls El Burdigato Supreme.

Fleshy Guy in pain

After cutting his finger and stubbing his toe, Fleshy Guy retreats to his room.

Fleshy Guy, now bloated, is in pain and Beast Boy admits that he might have overdone it. Fleshy Guy's stomach makes a growl and he rushes off to the bathroom. At the urging of Fleshy Guy, Beast Boy enters the bathroom and he sees him with his feet in the toilet. At the end of the first day, Fleshy Guy wonders why it hurts to move his body and Beast Boy answers it's because he is tired. He tells him he needs to recharge his batteries, and Fleshy Guy assumes he means it literally and is electrocuted. The next day, Fleshy Guy tiredly joins the other Titans at the kitchen table and complains that he could barely sleep due to the human body. He picks up a comic book, but gets a paper cut. He attempts to leave the room, but stubs his toe against the chair. Upset about the amount of pain caused to a human body, Fleshy Guy retreats into his room, crying. Beast Boy suggests that he go after Cyborg, but Robin says otherwise and says he is the best option due to being a real boy.

Real Boy

Fleshy Guy and Robin sing about the benefits of being a real boy.

In Fleshy Guy's room, Fleshy Guy cries to his old Cyborg suit and attempts to put his robot armor back on. Robin enters the room and tells Fleshy Guy that being a real boy isn't bad. Cyborg says otherwise, and asks how could anyone live like a real boy. He notices Robin and apologizes, but Robin says that even though he doesn't have superpowers, being a real boy has its benefits. He offers to take him on a real boy adventure and they sing a song, "Real Boy", alongside other real boys, about the advantages of being human. Fleshy Guy, convinced that being a real boy is better, throws away his robot parts and high-fives Robin. The crime alert blares and Starfire and Raven note that it's coming from the yard. Beast Boy realizes that the criminals are trying to steal their hot tub.

Robin as Cyborg

Robin steals Cyborg's suit, thinking that it is superior to a real boy.

Outside, Gizmo, Jinx, and Mammoth are carrying away the Titans' hot tub when they are confronted by Beast Boy, Raven, Starfire, and Fleshy Guy. Gizmo asks what happened to Cyborg and Fleshy Guy answers that he has a new name. However, Robin arrives, dressed in Cyborg's robot suit and mentions that Gizmo was talking to him. Fleshy Guy realizes that the song was just a distraction to persuade him into giving up his robot suit so that Robin could obtain it. Robin tells Fleshy Guy that he wouldn't want to be a real boy when he has rocket boots, but has trouble working the suit. He attempts to attack the villains, but the rockets boots activate. Robin flies around uncontrollably and slams into Beast Boy, Raven, and Starfire, dragging them into the ocean and leaving Fleshy Guy alone to face Gizmo, Jinx, and Mammoth.

Fleshy Guy celebrates his victory

Fleshy Guy celebrates his victory over Jinx, Mammoth, and Gizmo.

Fleshy Guy tells them not to hurt him as he is just a weak real boy, but realizes that they are human as well. He throws comic books at Jinx, paper-slicing her face and apologizes to his girlfriend by telling her to put some ice on it. Mammoth charges toward Fleshy Guy, but he slides on the ground and kicks Mammoth's toes, stubbing them and causing him to fall. He avoids Gizmo's mechanical arms and throws him into the hot tub, burning him. As the H.I.V.E. groan in defeat, Fleshy Guy celebrates his victory, classifying it as a real boy adventure.

Trivia

General

  • Only Gizmo, Jinx, and Mammoth appeared in the episode. Coincidentally, they were the only three members of the H.I.V.E. Five to appear in separate episodes before the team's debut in "Super Robin".
  • Mammoth's scream during the battle with Fleshy Guy was his first line in the series, but the scream was actually taken from Shrimp's scream in "Pirates".
  • Cyborg is the fourth Titan to appear completely nude in the show. The first two were Beast Boy and Robin in "Laundry Day" followed by Starfire in "Mr. Butt".
  • This episode aired exactly one year after "Be Mine".
  • Food Content: Beast Boy has Cyborg consume a large amount of food.
  • This episode aired with a rerun of "Smile Bones".

Continuity

  • This episode revealed that Cyborg and Jinx were still in a relationship which was established in "Opposites".

References

  • Green Lantern, Nite Owl, The Joker, The Penguin, and The Riddler appear during the song, "Real Boy" cheering on Batman.
  • Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Michael Jackson (dressed in his "Thriller" costume) are real world people who appear during "Real Boy".
  • The presidents depicted on Mount Rushmore appear during the "Real Boy" sequence: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.
  • Peter Pan and Tinker Bell from J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan appear during the song.
  • Pinocchio from the Italian novel, The Adventures of Pinocchio, by Carlo Collodi appears during the song.
  • When Beast Boy mentions that he was good at naming people, he referenced Michelangelo from Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles who also has a habit of naming others. Both voiced by Greg Cipes.
  • Beast Boy took the form of a cricket and advised Cyborg as he explored the benefits of being human. This referenced the character of Jiminy Cricket in Disney's 1940 film Pinocchio.

Errors

  • Cyborg claims that he can't go in the hot tub because he can't enjoy the bubbly feeling. However, he played with bubbles in a bath during "Serious Business".
