For Tim Drake in this series, the writers characterized Tim as such to blend him with another character, Jason Todd - the ill-fated Robin who would otherwise make no appearances in the animated universe. See more »

Welcome to the team, kid
15 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So I'm guessing this is a flashback episode, beings that we already saw Drake as Robin in the episode before this. But whatever, it doesn't really matter, what does matter though is that they pretty much nailed this episode. I'm not too familiar with the origin story of Tim Drake, but I like how they based at least his animated version off of Jason Todd. Given my love for Todd's version of Robin, at least they gave another character a version of his backstory. I understand why they didn't have Todd in the series, it would've been too much to have an episode based off of "A Death in the Family". The humor's good, the animation's good, and I love the take on Drake's origin story. Also it was great to see the older version of Dick at the end of the episode, here's hoping there are plenty of episodes with him as Nightwing.
