Teen Titans Character Profile: Thelma

No trip to Warner Bros. Animation would be complete without a sassy sweet greeting from the front desk receptionist, Thelma. But here's a little inside info that many people may not know about our own loving Thelma...

When Pam the waitress (see Teen Titans episode: Betrayal), turned evil and went to work as the head lunch lady at the HIVE academy (see Teen Titans episode: Deception), the owner of Ben's Bacon Bar and Grill was in a tight spot. Pam is obviously working for Slade and the HIVE from day one, I mean look at her enormous pink BEE HIVE hairdo! It's a dead give away. So anyway, two years later, a customer who actually wants to order food (not just drink and shoot pool, badly) actually comes to the restaurant, and actually wants a waitress to take his order! Well, here's where the owner of Ben's calls in a favor with good ol' Thelma! Thelma shows up, serves Beast Boy his pie, and is back to the WB by the next morning! God bless Thelma! She's saved the day again.
Screen grabs blatantly stolen, I mean, lovingly borrowed from Titansgo.net.

And there's your Teen Titans insider info on this wonderful President's Day 2006. Thelma accepts all fan mail at C/O Warner Bros. Animation.

When I first saw the pic of Thelma I thought something bad happened to her. But no, just a shout. Thank god, the world needs Thelma!

She's the only element of the WB I truly miss. Oh yeah, I also miss the stress.

Pam the evil waitress. I wondered what happened to her.
Thelma, good ol' Thelma. What would the world be like without Thelma? :)

(On a slightly off-topic note: TWO YEARS?!?
Wow, my guess wasn't as far off as I thought it'd be. That made my inner fangirlbratthing squeal with delight. Like, whoah.)

So it's official! Thelma is now TM and © Warner Brothers Animation. Can't wait for the Thelma action figure!

Technically, anything created in Titans is owned by DC comics. So pretty much the whole crew, myself and Thelma included, is TM and © DC Comics. Let's see any Marvel fan top that!

Yeah Brandon V...the limited addition of Thelma action figure should be the hottiest selling item. I bet you and comic book crew can't wait to buy it when it hits toy stores everywhere. Thelma could be the next big star at comic con. I miss Thelma!
