Hot Salad Water is the 26th episode of season 4 of Teen Titans Go!.

Plot

When drinking tea turns the other Titans British, it's up to Robin to save America from another British invasion brought by the Queen of England herself and save his teammates.

Why It Sucks

  1. The plot is incredibly stupid.
  2. It insults, disrespects, and offends the people of the United Kingdom, its culture, and especially Queen Elizabeth II. It even portrays all of them in a xenophobic manner. Let alone making this episode look as if the writers or creators are living like it's the American Revolution or something like that.
  3. Some of the details make no sense. The Americans and the British have been allies ever since the two fought against China during the Boxers Rebellion, Germany during the First and Second World War and Soviet Union during the Cold War! Even though adding North Korea, Russia, China, Iran, or terrorist groups such as The Islamic state, Al-Qaeda or The Taliban as the bad guys wouldn't make that much of a difference (mostly for political reasons), it would at least make sense since those countries and insurgencies do not have friendly relations with the US. If it wasn't for the United Kingdom, during the First and Second World War, The Germans or Russian would take over Europe! To quote Winston Churchill about Americans “You can always count on the Americans to do the right thing after they have tried everything else.” and If it wasn't enough, they wouldn't have made military organizations like NATO and even the UN!
  4. What was even the point of writing an episode about the UK if the episode looks as if the writers (or creators of the show) hardly did that much research of the UK?
  5. Robin acts as a nationalistic supremacist in this episode.
  6. There isn’t anything wrong with drinking tea. It's like saying "there is a thing wrong with drinking water" when there is nothing wrong with that either. In reality, tea is a healthy drink just like water.
  7. The US at Robin's flashback into 1770s was 50 states without Alaska and Hawaii, but in reality, it's about 13 states.
  8. Bad ending (read story plot up above).
  9. Completely illogical: How can drinking tea help England to recolonize America?
  10. Xenophobic Moral: Being American is better than being British.
  11. Historical inaccuracies:
    • Most notably, the Statue of Liberty didn't reach the United States until 1885, long after the revolution had taken place.
    • Also, the colonists weren't forced to drink tea and they actually liked it. But when the British started taxing tea unfairly, the colonists protested in different ways, like the Boston Tea Party and by drinking other beverages instead, like coffee.
    • Robin also said that soda is a national drink of the US but soda wasn't invented until 1807 and United States' national drink is actually bourbon. However, it may be because to avoid possible copyright issues.
    • Robin also uttered that tea is the favorite drink of Great Britain. However, in recent years, tea consumption has been in decline in England, even though most British still like to drink it. In fact, starting from the 90s, more British people have been switching their beverage preferences to coffee because of its cheapness.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. The Awesome America song is catchy, albeit extremely nationalistic and ironic, since it references America's extremely high incarceration rate and also everybody in the song is portrayed as obese despite this episode trying to glorify America.

Trivia

  • This episode has been very controversial and was considered very offensive, upsetting both British and American audiences because Robin shows prejudice against British people. Audiences were also angry about the fact the queen was a villain, which could be considered defamation as she was the exact opposite.
  • Despite popular belief, the episode actually premiered in the United Kingdom on February 13, 2018, completely uncut and uncensored.
    • It’s still banned in most countries for these reasons (including the main reason being xenophobia).
  • This episode reunites Tara Strong and Jane Carr, who both voice acted together in the Nickelodeon show The Fairly OddParents as Timmy Turner and Mama Cosma respectively.

There's a big difference between being patriotic and just straight-up racist. And the people who made this clearly didn't know the difference between them.

Portrock's right. British is a nationality, not a race so why do people keep saying that "it's racist" instead of "it's xenophobic"

Shit, I forgot to add the fact that people call the episode "racist", instead of "xenophobic".

A very small distance. In my personal opinion borders shouldn't even exist and we should all just live in harmony as one planet.

I'm surprised MrEnter didn't make an Animated Atrocities video out of this.

I would, but the words I would use to describe this episode are not appropriate.

Not only is Teen Titans Go obnoxiously annoying, it is also xenophobic, as shown in this episode. Plus, xenophobia is not appropriate for a "kids show."

Maybe Robin is gonna help the U.S take over the world, similar to how Dora teaches Spanish, she always acts so suspicious when doing it, maybe she is trying to help Venezuela take over the world!

Technically the United States does rule the world as the sole superpower, it doesn't have to have all of the territorial control. Not to mention, I thought Dora was of Mexican descent. Plus, she's too young to be malicious.
