"Teen Titans: Season One: Vol. 2 - "Switched" contains seven full episodes and a lot of extras. I only rate this DVD three stars because how much of Beast Boy's drool and Starfire's annoying chatter can you take? Beast Boy drools so much, especially in Episode Four, it will make you sick.
And since when did Starfire become superstrong? I thought she could fly and fire starbolts. Isn't that power enough?
Episode One - "Switched" - The boys are captivated with little marionette versions of themselves mysteriously received in the mail. Raven and Starfire have puppets too, but aren't as enthralled. While they sleep, the Puppetmaster puts his plan into gear. Robin, BeastBoy, and Cy's spirits are trapped in the marionettes, while the Puppetmaster controls their real bodies.
Only the girls are not trapped in the puppets - but they are trapped in each other's bodies. Two very different girls must race to understand each others powers - and each other - before the Puppetmaster's switcheroo spell becomes permanent.
Episode Two - "Deep Six": A new Titan is introduced: the dashing Aqualad. The egoistic sea dweller must work closely with a team - something he has never done before - to defeat the sea-villian Trident, who has stolen some toxic waste.
Episode Three - "Masks": Compelling episode with an unusual twist. Robin falls deeper and deeper into his obession with finding and unmasking the arch-villian Slade. All this while the team needs his help contending with a new bad guy named Red X.
Episode Four - "Mad Mod": Some editor was really missing his sixties days. The villian Mad Mod is one strange dude. Foiling the Titans turns him on. He thinks it's groovy to teach them a lesson to mind their own business. In his copacetic house, things go from psychedelic to a bad trip for our heroes.
Adults might get a kick out of Mad Mod, but kids will not relate to him. I felt very strange for a long time after seeing this episode.
Episode Five - "Car Trouble": Cyborg builds a car, and it is his baby - but it gets stolen. Cy and Raven go after the thieves. Kind of a boring episode, although it is cute to see Cy and Raven work together.
Episodes Six and Seven - "The Apprentice": Someone wants Robin for his apprentice - and it's not Donald Trump. This two part episode is dark and compelling, like all Robin-Slade episodes. We finally see what Slade's goal has been, and it is a horrifying one. It seems Slade may win after all.
Starfire has never looked more beautiful than in one scene in "The Apprentice", when she is confronting Robin on the roof and telling him to stop.
One thing I love about this DVD is that there is dubbing in Spanish AND French. Starfire is much less annoying en francais. And Raven's voice in Spanish is a kick. Here, her voice matches how weird she looks and is. I like the voice!
Extras are bountiful. There is a new cartoon you can watch and go online to rate. I liked it - it was s'ok. The best extra is an extended interview between Robin and Puffy Ami Yumi. Robin asks them lots of questions, and the girls give great answers. It is great when they say Robin looks like Christmas!"
Now I want to own all the Teen Titan DVD's

"We had a long car trip to get to our vacation destination, so that gave us the excuse to buy this DVD. We mainly bought it for our 5 year-old, but I enjoy it as much as he does. Teen Titans is one of my favorite programs to watch.
My son enjoys the Switched episode best. The best part about that episode is learning more about Raven and Starfire. Their bodies get switched and they have to learn about each other in order to defeat the puppet master. These characters are so opposite that it makes it interesting to see how they handle the challenge.
My favorites are the Slade episodes, and Red X. I think the villian Slade is a deeper and more challenging character than most.
Overall a good DVD. Once you try one, you will want to get all the Teen Titans DVD's. I know I do."
Great toon for Kids and Adults!

"I got this for my daughter to watch on a long road trip to San Diego. She loved it so much, it has become one of her favorite videos. At first, I couldn't stand what they had done to one of my favorite comics as a teenager, but I learned to like it and now my daughter and I watch it together, along with the regular series."
