4 THINGS I’M 72% SURE YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT ROBIN’S PANTIES


#1 “Holy Green Batman!” In 2005 the actual TV Robin costume was set at a pre-auction value of $35,000 – $40,000


#2- The panties first appeared in 1940 in Detective Comics issue #38.


#3- The Robin costume (panties and all) was inspired by Robin Hood because the character had been a favorite of Batman creators’ Bob Kane and Bill Finger.


#4- In the beginning, Burt Ward (TV’s Robin) was paid $350 a week to wear the green panties.

  1. 350 a week, even if it was 50 years ago, it's not enough to go through that humiliation.

  7. @DCG... You wear the bra, I will wear the panties, we'll both go out together and save the world from evil!

  8. I'm surprised I never worked out the Robin Hood connection before, as I'm a fan of both Batman and Robin Hood.

  9. If the panties didn't appear before issue #38, what was he wearing before then? - a fig leaf or nothing at all?

  10. @MissT, it's a deal. But just so we're clear if we bump into Christian Bale in the rubber suit I get first dibs.

  20. Robin is a greasy minion of Batman. He is unmentionable.

  21. Robin is way gayer than Robin Hood. He should have re-thought the design.
