Here’s a fun fact: Teen Titans Go, the extra kid-friendly, comedic reboot of the beloved Teen Titans cartoon, has been airing for a decade. A decade!

However, the team will also return to observe the NBA’s annual All-Star Slam Dunk Contest for the second year in a row, airing Sunday at 5:00 p.m. ET.


So this is a big weekend for Teen Titans Go, but it’s also been a big decade for the show, too. And toy sales notwithstanding, I suspect they won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
