Teen Titans Go! (2013–…): Season 1, Episode 52 - Puppets, Whaaaaat? - full transcript

Robin makes marionette versions of the other Titans as a way to deal with their lack of respect. However, he takes things a little too far when he wishes the real Titans were more like his puppets and The Puppet Wizard grants his wish.

(opening theme playing)

Listen up,
I'm the leader of the titans
and I say the commands.

That's right, bro, you are.

And we shall listen to you.

Beast boy, make me a sandwich,

Sure, yes, sure, leader sure.

Cyborg, foot massage, pronto.

Anything you want,
mr. Leader guy. Booyah!

Raven, organize the dvds.

How I love doing your bidding,
o' glorious leader of ours.

Here you go, boss.

Not good enough.

Starfire, come here to me.

(gasping) oh, robin.

-(watch beeping)
-uh, puppet time
will have to wait.

It's fitness time.

(upbeat music playing)

Okay, titans.
Day one of our new
fitness regimen.

Time for a run.

Come on. Titans, go!

Can't you see we're relaxing?

Tough. (panting)

I'm your leader,
and I say we go for a run.

You're our leader on missions,
not around the house.

Hey, this is a command.

And this is the best part.
Shh, bro.

(music playing on tv)

Tell me a joke, beatbox.

(upbeat music playing)

That's redonkulous.


-Beast boy: Oh, so good.
-Cyborg: Oh!


-I will listen to you, robin.

After I am finished
reading the magazine.

You guys
never listen to me anymore!


Uh-oh. He's getting
the crazy eyes again.


Here it comes.


He's gonna blow.

he did not do the flip out.


Calm down. Calm down.

Keep it together, robin.

Go to your happy place.

I am the leader of the titans.

All right, titans,
we are gonna work those
problem areas today.

Are you ready?


Yeah, good, yeah.

In four, three, two, one,
let's go.

(upbeat music playing)

And squeeze, and squeeze,

And squeeze, and squeeze.

Lean into it. Lean into it.

Shake it out. Shake it out.

Cyborg, work those glutes.

Let me hear
some metal clanging.


Beast boy,
keep that hand on the mat.

I'm watching you.
I got eyes on, beast boy.

Yes, sir, robin sir.
Whatever you say, dude.

Ah! Feeling so much better.

Dude, that is weird.


Are those puppets?

(laughing nervously) puppets?
What? No.

Whoa! Is that me?

I'm super handsome.

Where did you get the little
wooden people, robin?

they're here to help you deal
with stress, aren't they?

Uh... Well...

Super weird!

It is the eyes
of the crazy again.

Uh-oh, take it back, cyborg,
take it back!

I can't! What would
rest of you call that?
That is weird!

(breathing heavily)


It's all good, dude.
We don't think
you're weird at all.

Now, who's a good boy?
Who's a good boy?

(both chuckling)

I am.

Uh, yeah. It's weird.

Oh, I would like to try
the weirdness.


Yeah, me, too.

(gasping loudly)
what are you doing?

It's puppet time!


Keep your hands
off my puppets.

Raven: What's up
with these puppets.

They can't do anything.

Starfire: Mine cannot even

Oh, yes, they can.

Puppets can do everything.

They are the ultimate form
of artistic expression.

-You're just doing it wrong.

(clears throat)
see, you just move one leg,

Then the other like this.

Oh, man, what?

Oh, I cannot do this.

Mine is broken.

No, like this.

Oh, I am getting
the understanding.

(chuckling) look at me go.


I'm poppin' it,
I'm poppin' it.

I'm poppin' it.

Easy peasy.

Ahhh! No! If you would just
listen to my orders

You'd learn
how to do it right.

Uh, we're not your puppets,

You can't just make us do
what you want.

Yeah. There ain't no strings
on us, dude.


Uh, what're you guys doing?
I didn't authorize any...

Relax, dude.
We're just putting in
a new door.

But it doesn't go anywhere.

I know. That's the joke.

(slams) as the building's
safety marshall

I order you to...
(clears throat)

It could compromise
the structural integrity of...

I need my puppets!



(panting) where are they?

Where's the stage?

We used it, bro.

I think we left it outside.

I did not just fall for that!

Oh, yes, you did.

(all laughing)


Ahhh! They never listen to me.

I wish they were
more like my puppets.

puppets. Puppets. Puppets.

Did I hear a puppet wish?

Whoa! A talking sock.
That's weird.

I am no ordinary talking sock.

I am the all-powerful
puppet wizard.

-master of the ancient
puppet arts.

And I see that
you're having control issues
with your team.

Yeah, they just don't
listen to me anymore.

I'm their leader, and I know
what's best for them.

But, no. They wanna have
rules of their own
or whatever.

it's really frustrating.

Well, I can make it
so your titan friends

Can be as easily manipulated
as your puppets.

And all for the low, low price
of your mortal soul.

(laughing evilly)

(birds chirping)

Just sign here.

You've got a deal, sock.

(evil laughter)

Raven: We're puppets.

Robin: That's right.

Starfire: What have you done,

Now that you're all puppets,
you'll have to listen to...

Whoa! (chuckles)
I look weird as a puppet.

Watch me perambulate, yo.

(chuckling) ooh.

Wonder if I can still
turn into stuff.



Okay, guys,
it's time to go for a run.

Raven: Nice view.

(moving traffic)

Come on!

You're puppets.
You're supposed to do
as I say.

Uh, yeah.
But you're a puppet, too.

Oh, right.

I guess I didn't think
this through too well.

Clearly, this was a bad idea.

So, uh, where's the bathroom?
I've really gotta go.

Um, it's just a puppet stage.

It doesn't have a bathroom.

Does the puppet stage
have a kitchen?

-I'm so hungry, bro.

Hey, this tv doesn't work.

These pages are all blank.

What do you people
want from me?
They're just props!

We wanna be people again.

You must change us back!

I can't.

I sold all of our souls
to the puppet wizard.

The puppet wizard!

The puppet wizard?

Ugh, not the puppet wizard.

Who's the puppet wizard?


"since time immemorial,

"the puppet wizard
has ruled over a distant
mystical land

"where he traps
unlucky souls in the bodies
of wooden puppets.

"the only way
to reclaim one's soul
is to travel to his kingdom

"and defeat him in battle
before sunset.

"if we fail,
we'll be lifeless marionettes

"doomed to do
the puppet wizard's

Then we know
what we have to do.

Titans, go!

Does this thing even work?

-Here I got it.
-(bell dings)

(upbeat music playing)



(techno music playing)


Behold the puppet wizard.

(laughing evilly)

Come to reclaim your souls,
I see.


With your puny puppet bodies

You'll never defeat me
in battle.

We'll see about that.

Puppet attack!


Pencil whack!


Heat energy,
the wizard of puppets.


(groaning) ouch!

Yes! We did it.

We got our souls back.

(sighs) I miss my people self.

So, you have anything
to say for yourself, robin?

This was all my fault.

It's just hard to be a leader
if nobody listens to you.

I'm sorry, guys.

Nah, you were right all along.

It was all our fault.

You're our leader,
and we should always
listen to you, bro.

Starfire, what about you?

Robin, come here to me.

Dude's got issues.

-(kissing) ah!
