    Uh, Zonker. Robin was played by Burt WARD when Adam West (voice of Mayor West on Family Guy) was Batman in the late 60s.

    That has never been proven.

    Judging from the movie posters, there’s no question of it.

    Nobody’s had the guts to ask. Besides nobody knows what they do when they’re not fighting crime. Bruce Wayne has an endless line of famous chicks at his beck and call. The creators are trying to dispell the vicious and unwarranted rumors of the 60’s.

    No, pouncingtiger … though, Burt Ward did play Robin… Dick Grayson (Robin) was Bruce Wayne’s ward.

    I’m trying to have my brats named wards of the state.

    It means Zonker would be ‘in loco parentis’. Well, he might manage part of that…

    Q. Why did Dick Grayson always wear a nightgown before bed?

    A. That was his wardrobe.

    With villains like HArley Quinn and Catwomen, How could the dynamic duo be gay?!

    According to Adam West (writing in “Back to the Batcave”), Burt “Ward” (Bert John Gervis, Jr) chose his stage name to reflect his role in the series. However, acccording to Wikipedia, it’s the actor’s mother’s maiden name.

    If you’re a fan of the old series, that’s a great book to take from the public library and read while sitting on the beach this summer.

    What with stately Wayne manor having all those big rooms, you might’ve thought Batman could’ve kept all his stuff in one of them instead of a damp, drafty cave. But then it might’ve sounded strange to hear Batman say, “Come, Robin, we must go to the Bat-Room!”

    I wonder if in order to make her his ward will Zonker have to put up a ward bond?

    Batman and Robin were both turned on by Batgirl, so “gayness” wasn’t an issue. On the other hand, perhaps the “Bi-namic Duo” went both ways.

    @MobyD That’s a good one there. Takes me back to the days of westerns.
