    Probably not, I don't think those kinds of shows are big on changing thing around.

    Honestly, I doubt they would have covered it at all. I can't remember Superfriends referring to Robin as Dick Grayson one time, although I could be forgetting something. Maybe in the episode when Luthor's dream machine was making the Superfriends steal stuff. But basically, Robin was Robin. So I really doubt they would have introduced a second Robin. I mean, move Casey Kasem over to a new Nightwing character and have someone else voice a new Robin? Never would have happened.

    Let's move this discussion beyond whether or not Hanna Barbera would have made this move (most appear to believe that they would not) to how the public might have received it if it had been done.

    I don't know if many of them would have cared or understood why they did it.

    Does anyone have a good idea as to how many people who watched the cartoon were serious comic book readers as well?

    (NOTE: I followed the comic books, but didn't really follow the cartoons . . . I was a bit older then, and those cartoons could be a tad . . . childish.)
