Did Robin's Mask Have Larger Eye Holes In The Third Season?

Post by The Boss »

I've been binge-watching the entire Batman series. Starting with the episode "The Ogg Couple" I noticed that the eye holes in Robin's mask looked larger. And it has continued with each episode since. I have never noticed this before. Has anyone else noticed this?

Absolutely. Now, as for the reason, I can only tell you that I've heard Burt complained about the mask. Where I heard or read that is lost in the haze of 50 years of being a 66 groupie :x

Man, the S3 mask looks goofy. But a Boy Wonder's gotta be able to see, I suppose!

Yep, I noticed his mask when I was a kid, watching for things I could. I believe I noticed it in the Penguin Fruit fly episode when a fruit fly landed on his nose :lol:

The oddest thing is that even though I have never before noticed this in all my years of watching Batman, now that I have noticed it I can't NOT notice it. It's starting to become a distraction. It's also making the use of stock footage all the more obvious since he has the smaller eye holes in the reused footage.

Would anyone have a comparison photo to post?
(I know I could just pop in the blu-rays, but somehow I think someone has one ready to go!) :lol:

I always noticed in Season 3 that Robins mask had bigger eye holes as someone said it was so Burt could see better out of them I do prefer the smaller eye holes tho.

If you think the eye holes are distracting, wait until you noticed how far the collars on Burt's capes were extended by S3...

AND...lest we forget how funky Burt's "R" logo got by the latter half of season three, too.
