"Robin's Reckoning" is a two-part episode of Batman: The Animated Series. The first part originally aired on February 7, 1993, followed by the second part on the 14th. The episodes depict the origin of Robin (Dick Grayson). A mobster named Tony Zucco, who killed Robin's parents, returns. Batman refuses to allow Dick Grayson to use the persona of Robin to apprehend him. Batman launches an investigation, searching for Zucco, which is paralleled by Robin's own investigation, unbeknownst to the Dark Knight. As the search narrows to an abandoned theme park, a series of flashbacks tell Robins origin story and how he came to live with Bruce Wayne.
This installment was based on the comics story from Detective Comics #38 (April 1940), and the first part won an Emmy award for Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming Less Than One Hour). Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale have stated that this episode inspired a great part of their later successful comic Batman: Dark Victory. (Read more...)
