Adventures in Robinsitting (also known as "A Dark Knight on the Town" in certain countries) is a 1987 American superhero comedy film. Although it is set in Narrows and Gotham City, with much of the action taking place in the city itself, the movie was filmed primarily in Metropolis. The film revolves around Babs Gordon being entrusted to the care of a millionaire's adopted sons and ward and the misadventures that occur along the way.

(If you can't tell, we're HUGE fans of Drew Struzan. Apologies, Mr. Struzan!)

This is too cute. It can be hard to draw people with decent proportions when you have to add a ton of them in complicated poses and at varying heights in the picture, but everything here looks fantastic. Their goofy expressions make me smile, too.

I love the idea of Barbara as the big sister/babysitter figure to the rest of the Bat-Family. It's wonderful.

And the expressions on these kids....wow. You rock

i know there were 4 robins so i am assuming dick grayson won't watch his own adopted brothers? well i guess when you have millions you can afford a baby sitter. there can be a sequel to this showing grayson trying to hit on batgirl with the rest of the robins in the background either snooping or being jealous or getting into trouble in a family comedy sort of way

i hope im right because i dont want to think of a scenario with one of the other robins being the one left out

It's completely non-canonical... I just wanted to show 3 of the 4 Robins (Damian Wayne, Tim Drake-Wayne, and Dick Grayson). In reality, Dick should be as hold and as mature as Barbara, but he's slightly younger here.

What happened to Jason Todd? I figured that Nightwing is elsewhere, which is why he would entrust the other Robins to Batgirl.
