The Filmation Titans weren't a show unto themselves. They were one of many rotating features shown during the Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure, along with the JLA, GL, Atom, Flash (w/ Kid Flash!), Hawkman, and Superboy.

Copies of these cartoons are available on DVD on the collection, "DC Super Heroes: The Filmation Adventures."

Adam, DC had a response to that:

The Titans Answer Deadpool

I am still watching this, even if it's too dark and realistic and the Wolfman/Pérez version is clearly much better.

- Interesting how several characters have lost their costumes: Beast Boy, Raven, Starfire... even Dick Grayson.

- Season 2 has introduced a number of new characters: Aqualad, Doctor Light, Deathstroke... and (the modern, "clone" version of) Superboy has just appeared in the 6th episode, which was quite entertaining.

I still believe they should make a movie very closely based in the Wolfman/Pérez material and happening in the 80s, or maybe a trilogy. That would be very interesting and there is a chance it might work, considering the 80s are now trendy.

A Titans movie based in the Wolfman/Pérez material would work even without the 80's time period. The topics, the storylines work just as well in the present day.

Sadly, WB is clueless with this series.

The Doom patrol is a great show because it manages to use the best elements from the classic patrol and the Grant Morrison's approach.

In Titans, however, the best version was clearly Wolfman/Pérez one, so the show has the following problems:

1) Visually too dark: The 80s comic book version had a dark undertone under a gorgeous, colorful visual approach. This is just dark.

2) No Cyborg: Vic Stone is a big part of this story.

3) No combination of colors in main characters: Everything is dark here, but in the 80s comic books each character had a main color and this was an interesting visual approach.

4) Starfire is too different: This character was perfect when it was created. The skin color, the innocence, even the costume. It's a totally different character now and the group dynamics suffer from this. Also, she can not fly and that's not cool.

5) Beast Boy is not used enough: This character should be constantly joking and turning into different animals. It worked well as a contrast to the serious and often dark tones of the 80s comic books. Here, he only turns into a tiger and he's too scared.

6) Hawk and Dove are overused: These characters are good for a couple of flashbacks episodes, but they break the balance of the team. They are just two robins when it comes to powers, when Robin was the only one without special abilities in the 80s version of the team.

Not everything is bad: the action sequences are decent and the actors do a good job... I will keep watching the show, but I hope there is a direct adaptation of the 80s comic books someday.
