Holy Blogsite! It’s the Robin Express!!
I was watching some videos on the Youtube the other day, when I came upon some old videos of the tv show “Batman.” I smiled with glee, reminicing the days, when I used to watch this show back in the 80’s.
This show was created in 1966. Pretty old you might say!
Adam West and Burt Ward, collectively known as “The Dynamic Duo” were the actors who donned the costumes portraying Batman and Robin respectively.
Anyway, while watching some of the episodes of the tv show, I couldn’t help but noticed how Robin would utter some of those famous “holy lines” of his, which to some can sometimes be downright weird especially when he says it at the spur of the moment.
I decided to do some research on those famous “holy lines” and came up with some interesting quotes from the boy wonder himself. (Disclaimer: These do not reflect my views, just got this from the net dudes. Try surfing it!)
Robin’s Holy List:
Holy Merlin The Magician!
Holy Long John Silver! A Pirate Parascope!
Holy Glue Pot!
Holy Heart Failure!
Holy Costume Party! That’s The Penguin!
Holy Marathon Batman! I’m Getting A Stitch.
Holy Captain Nemo!
Holy Bikini That Was Close!
Holy Heatbreak! Miss Kitka
Holy Kleenex Batman! It was right under our nose and we blew it!
Holy Rosary Batman, it’s the Pope!
Holy No deposit! No return!
See? Told you it can be downright weird. Now here are more quotes.

I’ll spare you the agony of reading a very long list of quotes. So, if you happened to be a fan of these quotes, do yourself a favor and browse the net and search for those other quotes.
