1960s Robin Meets The Dark Knight in Hilarious Parody
If you ever wondered why Batman’s faithful sidekick Robin isn’t featured in the new Batman films, here’s why. In this well-made spoof video from AboveAverageNetwork, The Dark Knight is about to face his nemesis Bane — but just then Robin shows up. Worse still, it’s Robin from the original 1960s ‘Batman’ TV show.
For those who are too young to remember “Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel,” let’s just say Robin on that show was known for his pun-filled dialogue.
This hilarious parody plays on the campiness of the ’60s TV series and reminds us just how corny a character Robin was back in the day. Watch as the “Boy Wonder” tries to assist Batman in his fight against Bane, much to the “bane” of them both. Fans of puns, you’re in for a treat.
