Laren Bright and Alan Burnett were the story editors of "Robin's Reckoning Part 1 and 2". Although Laren Bright is uncredited for both "Part 1" and "Part 2" as a writer, still he wrote some of the major scenes for these episodes. For Example, Laren Bright wrote the scene where Robin has Zucco against the pier railing and is ready to kill him and Batman steps in and talks him down from his rage. See more »

Batman The Animated Series
Written by Danny Elfman & Shirley Walker See more »
With a title like 'Robin's Reckoning', you know this probably won't be all sunshine and gumdrops. And the awards recognition speaks for itself; even as a kid, I knew what kind of cachet "Emmy-winning" carried. And it deserves every ounce of that statuette. First off, the animation is first-rate; I mean, this looks amazing. And the henchman takedown at the construction site makes for a great opening. It really sets up Batman and Robin's chemistry on the job . . . and then proceeds to completely upend their relationship the minute a bombshell is dropped. For all the theatricality (say, the snapped rope of a trapeze swinging into frame), the performances are incredibly subtle. And woven into this story of turmoil is the tale of Robin's beginnings; it's very well executed.
The last thing I want to say about this is, well, that ending - which may very well be the series' finest cliffhanger. It's hard not to think (deep down) that the Dynamic Duo is in ruins.
