    In that episode when Slade said that he was Robins father or something, Robin says "I already have a father" and bats started flying across the screen. He is making a reference to Batman since he was like a father to him, but its not his real father.

    *is reminded of the anti-drug PSA from the 1980's when a myriad of cartoons from that period got together to help a struggling teenager with a drug problem*



    Slimer & The Real/Extreme Ghostbusters, ALF Tales, The Bugs & Tweety Show (with Daffy), Alvin & The Chipmunks, The Smurfs, Jim Henson's Muppet Babies, DuckTales, Garfield & Friends, The New Adventures of Winnie The Pooh, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987) all made contributions. All cartoon characters are copywriten to their respective creators.

    What's makes these cartoons all have an odd connection to this forum is that the Titans' 2003-2006 cartoon is based on the comics from the 1980's and some of the aformentioned programs were animated/produced overseas by the Wolf-Swenson branch that worked with Glen Murakami, a head writer for the said 2003-2006 cartoon (ex: The Chipmunks and TMNT). Nor does it help that the Titans themselves had an anti-drug promotion during the 1980's, as well.



    Robin/Nightwing (Dick Grayson) was tied in with being Batman's ward in the Adam West series running in re-runs, was a infrequent ally to The Superfriends, and was--along with Batman--marketing a cereal brand at the time, so with all the legal red tape, all of Robin's appearances in the anti-drug campaign were drawn over and The Boy Wonder was replaced with a similar hero, The Protector (supposedly named "Jason Hart" [Jason Todd, perhaps]), before General Mills and the big wigs at DC Comics could change their minds to allow Robin to appear.

    It does. Many PSAs during that time were cheesy (and if songs were included, they were catchy and irritatingly bothersome).

    Most PSAs are cheesy and heavy-handed to impart the lesson.

    Speaking of, Sonic was to be in the original special, but SEGA declined, opting instead to have the blue blur impart his own words of wisdom through his "Sonic Sez/Says" segment at the end of each episode of AoStH during the week (with SatAM--the darker and more compelling counterpart to the Warner Brothers stylings of AoStH--airing each Saturday).
