- "Holy Demolition!"
Dick Grayson is the determined, youthful ward and best friend 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. As Dick Grayson, he was a student and head of the council 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" Catchphrases
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!" What follows is a list of such outbursts. Dick Grayson and the Narrator also have their Holy catchphrases.
- Batman (all episodes)
- Legends of the Superheroes (two-part 1979 television special)
- Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders
- Batman vs. Two-Face
- CW Multiverse - Crisis cameo - Supergirl
Behind The Scenes
Alan Napier, who played Alfred the Butler, 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."
- In the 2019 Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover as part of the Arrowverse, Burt Ward appears as a civilian in a universe designated "Earth-66", in which his unnamed character pays homage to his role as Robin, such as wearing a colour scheme similar to his Robin outfit, and saying "Holy crimson skies of death" as he witnessed Antimatter destroying his universe. The setting he is in bears a similarity to the Gotham City from the 1960s Batman show. A dog he is walking is a German Shepherd, a reference to Ace the Bathound from the comics. Several reports claim that this is an older version of Robin from the 1966 Batman series, although he is yet to be officially stated as such by those working on the show or any in-universe information.
