Titans Start Their Engines For "Revved Up"

The Teen Titans upcoming episode, REVVED UP, airs this Saturday. The episode is written by John Espisito ["Revolution"]. This adventure features the extremely obscure Teen Titans villain, Ding Dong Daddy - as well as the return of Red X.

Story Editor Rob Hoegee spilled some details about this episode: "We had always talked about doing a "Wacky Races" episode. I think long before we even decided to put Ding Dong Daddy in it. We wanted to do that type of "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" meets "Cannonball Run" meets "Wacky Races" meets "Teen Titans." So as we looked at that story, it seemed like the perfect excuse to use Ding Dong Daddy - who is quite an obscure villain in the comics. And we actually got David Johansen - otherwise known as Buster Poindexter - also former the singer of the New York Dolls - to do the voice for him. That was a great surprise. He really brings that character to life. John Espisito - who wrote REVOLUTION - was the writer on that one. And he did a great job."

And what about the return of Red X in REVVED UP? Rob was more tight-lipped about the mysterious character's reappearance. " He does make a brief appearance," Rob noted. "I hope the fans are satisfied with his brief appearance in this one. That's all I can say right now.”

Here's how the network describes the episode: " Robin's most prized possession is stolen by the hip hot-rodder DING DONG DADDY, and to get it back they're going to have to beat him in a cross-country ROAD RACE. But with Ding Dong Daddy making the rules and a few unexpected rivals joining in the competition, it's anyone's guess who will cross the finish line first! "
