The OTHER DCAU Robin... well, robin at any rate.
Years ago, in Captain Carrot and the Zoo Crew, they visited Earth C-Minus, a world where the Justta Lotta Animals were the pre-eminent heroes. One member was Batmouse (Who is this rodent of mystery? Is he a bat? Is he a mouse? He'll never tell) and his sidekick was the "One panel and you'll miss him"; Boyd, the Robin Wonder.
However, in the criminally underappreciated "Krypto the Superdog" series there is actually a Robin analogue too! A young bird rescued from certain doom at the paws of the Joker's criminally inclined hyena's by Ace the Bat-Hound. Developing a severe case of hero worship and takes on the identity of Robbie the Robin, to assist the unwilling... make that EXTREMELY unwilling Bat-Hound. The little birdie is so eager to please that Ace is terrified of him, Ace eventually cons his
stalker sidekick into asking every pigeon for assistance in locating the Hyenas base and whilst he's out doing that, running like hell for Metropolis to hide in Krypto's doghouse of solitude)
I ask you, how could he be scared by bird with a cute little beak like that?
