Appearances

Notes/trivia

  • The Robin in The New Scooby-Doo Movies is based on the Dick Grayson version, but this isn't revealed in any manner in the show; Robin is his only identity within the Scooby-Doo universe.
  • He was voiced by Casey Kasem in The New Scooby-Doo Movies, who also voiced Shaggy Rogers. Kasem would later reprise the role of Robin in the Super Friends series; both shows were made by Hanna-Barbera.
  • His catchphrase ("Holy...") was borrowed from the live-action Batman TV series of the 1960's, wherein Robin was portrayed by Burt Ward.
  • Robin and the Titans in the Teen Titans--Ghost story are based on how they are presented in the Teen Titans Go! TV series aired on Cartoon Network. This version is voiced by Scott Menville, as opposed to the regular Hanna-Barbera version voiced by Casey Kasem, which is alluded to.

Appearances in other media

Robin was originally conceived as a comic-book character by artists, Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson, and writer, Bill Finger, for DC Comics, as a junior counterpart to Batman. He first appeared in Detective Comics #38 (Spring 1940), a year after Batman.

In 1968, Robin's first animated appearance occurred in Filmation's The Batman/Superman Hour; the segments were called The Adventures of Batman, and a year later were separated into its own show, Batman with Robin the Boy Wonder. In 1973 (a year after The New Scooby-Doo Movies), produced Super Friends, which co-starred Robin, continuing in various spin-offs until 1985. The cartoons either had Kasem or Ward as the voice of Robin.
