    I was just watching the new episode of Young Justice. During the commercial breaks they've been showing "DC Nation Shorts" which includes new cartoons of the Teen Titans. Well as they were fighting Mad Mod who was using a phone booth as a time machine (Dr. Who) time was going backwards and when they were in the 80's the robot henchmen then were fighting turned into an army of Soundwave clones complete with a Stylized Decepticon insignia on their chests. I'm surprised they didn't use the Soundwave design from Animated sense the same animation team worked on both cartoons. It might be because Cartoon Network doesn't have rights to it anymore they had to stylize the designs just to get away with using Soundwave at all. Anyway they also went on to include references to Scooby Doo and the Jetsons. Cyborg at one point actually looked like he did when he appeared on the Super Friends for a moment which was cool because I happen to like that version a lot more than his Teen Titans design. During the Jetsons reference they also included an entirely different team of Teen Titans. At first I was trying to figure out which one was Cyborg and which one was Beast Boy but then even Robin said "Who are you guys?" Though sense they were in the future he really should have been Nightwing, instead he was a Jetsons style robot in a Robin costume.

    Long story short, they packed a tone of references into a 1 minute cartoon.

    The only thing I'm surprised about is that they don't look like this.

    He had to alter the design a little to not break any design-ownership laws.

    Yeah, because it's important not to endanger the job position of the copywriter!

    You know what I meant. The design for Animated Soundwave is owned by Hasbro (or partially co-owned by CN) so they can't just use it for a non-Hasbro related show without getting the OK, which probably means some $$ being paid.

    Well Cartoon Network doesn't have rights to Transformers anymore. Transformers Animated was still being shown in reruns for a while after it ended but I just checked and there's no longer a page for it on their web site. If they still had the rights to Animated they could use the design without any problem.

    He was poking fun because of how you spelled copyright. You used the word "write" instead of "right".

    As a Transformers/DC fan myself, this is terrific. Someone should get Sol-Fury here. He's going to love this.

    On top of all that, didn't one of the "future" Titans look strangely like Sari, as well? Not sure if it was supposed to be an established character or not, though.
