Send lots of letters to Cartoon Network at 1050 Techwood Drive Atlanta GA 30318 and a sixth season of Teen Titans has a chance. Titans fans, GO.
If you watched all five seasons and the movie, if you grew up with this awesome show when it was being aired from 2003 to 2006, then I’m sure you were devastated when they** made the HORRIBLE MISTAKE of cancelling Teen Titans in late 2005.The roleplayers, fanfictions, AMVs, and fanart are more than enough evidence to show that our love for this show has never died, despite the lack of new episodes.
**The show’s cancellation has been a mystery, and lots of questions are unanswered. Aqualad’s voice actor Wil Wheaton blames Warner Bros. while the story editor Rob Hoegee blames Cartoon Network. No one really knows for sure what the eff happened…
July 19th, 2003: Teen Titans premieres on Cartoon Network with the episode “Final Exam”
November 2005: Rumors of cancellation
November 23rd, 2005: Season six is officially cancelled.
January 16th, 2006: The last episode “Things Change” airs
February 2011: Five years later, CN began showing reruns of old episodes on Boomerang.
November 2011: CN announced DC Nation, the future release of a whole bunch of DC-Universe-related TV shows including Green Lantern, Young Justice, Beware the Batman, and a chibi version of Teen Titans, but not a season six.Since this announcement, the Teen Titans fanbase has surged again, and this time the show’svoice actors are supporting us too.
January to March 2012: A Youtube video of the Teen Titans intro increases its views by 700,000.
February 15th, 2012: IGN Entertainment’s YouTube channel uploaded a 30-second preview of a short and now it has over 90,000 views. (IT’S NOT JUST OVER 9,000, PEOPLE.)
March 3rd, 2012: First day of DC Nation
March 10th, 2012: Second day with the first short
****If Cartoon Network can release this chibi version, let’s bring back season six! This is our big chance! Here is a list of things that you as a faithful fan can do to help:
#1.) SIGN THE PETITION THAT HAS OVER 5,000 SIGNATURES
Cartoon Network doesn’t like petitions. A signer exerts very little effort to type their name and email and click a sign button. Who knows for sure if the signer is a fan of the show? And one person can sign multiple times. Petitions aren’t exactly personal, nor do they guarantee authenticity.
Then why did the 3.5-million-signatures SOPA/PIPA petition have such a powerful impact on the US Congress? Some signatures are fake, some are legitimate. If you take away the petition’s “fake” signatures, there are still a lot of legitimate ones left.
Five thousand signatures is not enough in Cartoon Network’s eyes for this reason. They may not be impressed now, but if more people sign the petition and raise the number to, say, ten thousand…
#2.) SEND EMAILS TO CN by clicking ”Programming” then “Teen Titans”
Compared to signing a petition, sending an email is a more direct way of communicating with Cartoon Network. You’re taking the time to type more than just your name. Unfortunately, all emails look very similar in one inbox. The subject is the only thing to distinguish your email from others. Unless we send a whole lot, our Teen Titans emails will stand out as much as the Viagra spam - I wonder if CN ever receives those kinds of emails… never mind.
****#3.) TRUMP CARD: WRITE SNAIL MAIL TO CARTOON NETWORK AT 1050 TECHWOOD DRIVE ATLANTA GA 30318
Letters convince CN better than emails or petitions because they’re personal and require effort and have your feelings. It takes a lot more time and thought to create coherent sentences and write addresses and stick stamps on an envelope… than, like, to type your name and email in a petition.
If fans don’t work hard to achieve their goal, why should Cartoon Network fulfill that wish?
Envelopes can be customized to stand out! You can make the envelope catch CN’s attention. Write on the envelope “SAVE TEEN TITANS” or “SAVE TEEN TITANS SEASON SIX” or something like that. Use a envelope that’s not white. Send some fanart, even, whatever it takes to get your point across.
If you’re a busy person and don’t have time to write long paragraphs
like me, that’s okay. Print out and send this template to them, and just add 2 or 3 sentences.
By the way - this should be obvious - YOUR MESSAGES MUST BE POLITE AND MUST MAKE SENSE. Talk about what the show means to you, why you like the show, why you think it should return, why you want more than just the chibi shorts. Don’t bash Cartoon Network or Warner Bros. Teen Titans fans should be represented as good people, not bratty people! “pls bring back season six of teen titans or ill fukin kill you” is not going to be taken seriously. I mean… common sense here, people. Common sense.
#4.) Show support for the chibi Teen Titans shorts by watching them Saturday mornings on CN!
Let’s increase the Nielsen ratings! The shorts are shown in between commercials of Young Justice, which airs Saturdays at 10:30. And, now you can send more letters and emails to CN saying how much you love the shorts and wish they were longer!
#5.) One more favor… SPREAD THE WORD!
Information spreads through the Internet like wildfire. There are plenty of ways you can spread the word - reblog Tumblr posts, get FFN and deviantART people to promote it on their profile, post in forums and Facebook fan pages! YouTube highest-rated comments go a long way too. (One of mine got over 200 thumbs.)
Together as one team, I believe that we have the power to bring back a season six and continue the Titans’ stories! TITANS FANS, GO!
(Nice to meet you! We are Más and Menos, the super fast twins of Titans East. We fight criminals and protect Steel City.)
