"Holy YouTube, Batman!"

Not many folks know that when the 1988 "Batman" movie was being produced, Robin was initially going to appear briefly in the film's final act. While Robin didn't end up in the movie, the storyboard for the scene was "animated," with Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman, Jason Hillhouse as Robin, and Mark Hamill (yes, THAT Mark Hamill) as the Joker. Conroy and Hamill would later reprise their roles in the 1992 "Batman: The Animated Series," as well as in several subsequent series. Hillhouse went on to become a special features producer and commentary moderator of several of DC Comics' animated series... including the ones where Conroy voiced Batman and Hamill voiced the Joker. Fitting, eh?
