CharacterEdit

Dick Grayson is the determined, young ward of millionaire Bruce Wayne. It is unknown how this relationship came to be, or what became of Dick's parents. Nevertheless, he looks up to Bruce as any son would a father, and tries to learn as much as he can from Mr. Wayne. He also hones his crime fighting skills by working alongside Batman as Robin, the Boy Wonder. Dick has many hobbies to pass the long afternoons in Wayne Manor, such as his tuba and piano lessons, and also his bird calls.

Robin is strong willed, courageous and shows determination. He is ready to drop everything to help Batman fight crime. Best known for his constant "Holy" catch phrases such as "Holy Jack-In-The-Box" and "Holy Long John Silver". He lived at Wayne Manor with Bruce Wayne, Alfred (Bruce's butler) and Aunt Harriet Cooper. As Dick Grayson, he was a student at Woodrow Roosevelt High School.

While fighting crime with Batman, the Caped Crusader always helped Robin with his studies such as Mathematics and Languages.

Robin's "Holy" CatchphrasesEdit

While Batman was always poised and in control of his emotions, Robin was a highly excitable young man. Throughout their exploits, Robin would often find some event, some comment, some thing, completely unbelievable. On these occasions, he would exclaim, "Holy (insert words here), Batman!"

Behind The ScenesEdit

Alan Napier, who played Alfred Pennyworth, recalled Burt Ward as Robin in an interview:

"I remember why they cast Burt Ward. He was already twenty-one but sounded like fifteen. I do remember one time we were doing some soundtrack dubbing and he had to do it several times. He was complaining that he was losing his voice. So I said "Look Burt, after all this nonsense is over, if you like, I will teach you to talk and perhaps even to act." He said, "Gee, am I that awful?" But he was a nice boy, really."
