Robin is the very first super-hero sidekick. His first appearances dates back to DETECTIVE COMICS #38 in 1940.
In the comic book series, Robin and Starfire had a serious romantic relationship. They almost got married - until an evil version of Raven halted the ceremony.
Robin almost got a solo animated series of his own after the success of BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES. The Robin series would have detailed the boy wonder's heroic exploits as he juggled fighting crime with a college career. TEEN TITANS producer Glen Murakami even worked up some Robin redesigns for the series. The series was in development, but the FOX network ultimately passed on it.
