Love this piece. It'd be great to see the flipside of this, 60s Batman's reaction to Carrie Kelly. I have feeling it'd be a whole lot more light-hearted.

Wonder how 60's Batman will have the Dark Knight's Batman work out...

60's Robin: Hey Batman --

DK Batman: WHERE ARE THE OTHER DRUGS GOING?!

Erm... he didn't break Joker's neck.
He stopped himself in time and then Joker broke his own neck to pin it on Batman.

No, "The Dark Knight Returns" is a "possible future" Batman comic book story set in a future when he´s 50 something. It was written by Frank Miller in 1986 and it´s one of the main Batman stories.

The joke here comes from mixing the innocence of the 1966´s "Batman TV show"´s Robin with the grimmness of the old Batman from "The Dark Knight".

Thank you-- I have never read "The Dark Knight Returns" so I was wondering.

it is good read with context of the time when it was published.  By the time, Frank Miller was upset with american government, in the peak of the cold war, interfering militarly in other countries, and Batman represented the regular man opposing this position. Superman represented the unbeatable american government. So, this political story became one of the most successful Batman stories of all time.

Recently, Frank Miller changed his political views and his fans were upset with him, calling him senile.
