"The Teen Titans" are headed to the Cartoon Network in August.
According to DC Comics, the five teen superheroes Robin The Boy Wonder, Cyborg, Beast Boy, Starfire and Raven will get their own 30-minute show.
In addition, the WB is scheduled to air "Teen Titans" during the 2003-2004 season.
Heading the cast of voice actors is Scott Menville as Robin, the aggressive and acrobatic leader of the group. Greg Cipes provides the voice of Beast Boy, who can take on animal forms. Starfire, who can channel energy into powerful weapons, is voiced by Hynden Walch. Raven, with psychic powers, is voiced by Tara Strong and Cyborg, the Teen Titans' half-man/half-machine, is voiced by Khary Payton.
Wil Wheaton and Ron Perlman will provide voices for guest and recurring roles.
Warner Bros. Animation, under the guidance of Emmy Award-winner Glen Murakami, is producing the show.
"Cartoon Network has experienced great success with 'Justice League,' so we know we have a loyal audience ready to embrace this exciting new show," said Jim Samples, general manager and executive vice president of the network, in a statement on the DC Comics Web site www.dccomics.com. "These DC Comics characters have incredible powers, but struggle with how to use them. 'Teen Titans' will mesh perfectly with our other action-adventure programming and thrill our viewers."
"We are very excited about bringing 'Teen Titans' to life," said Sander Schwartz, president of Warner Bros. Animation, in the statement. "The opportunity to explore Robin, the classic sidekick of Batman, as well as the other teenage characters of the DC Universe provides a great setting for action-adventure tales for a new generation."
