Synopsis for "Batman II and Robin, Junior!"
During a mission capturing crooks, Robin becomes too reckless and disobeys Batman's command. The kid has to be saved by the Dark Knight and once they're back in the Batcave, Bruce scolds Robin for disobeying him.
Later that night, Dick Grayson dreams of a future time in which Bruce is too old to remain active as Batman and he has to take up the mantle, working with his only son as his partner, Robin Jr. In the dream, Dick Grayson is Batman II and he teaches his son the importance of following orders and teamwork. However, during one mission, Robin Jr. disobeys his dad's command and Batman II is forced to rescue the young man. Despite his best efforts, Dick is unable to rescue Robin Jr. and his harsh actions have doomed them both to a certain death.
Dick Grayson then wakes up and Bruce gives him the task of mowing the lawn as a punishment for last night's blunder. Dick has learned his lesson and he finishes his job just as Bruce told him.

- In The Joker's Comedy of Errors! story, the word "boner" is often used throughout the entire issue, however, it is not related to the vulgar meaning of the word. "A boner" used to be the North American informal way to describe “a mistake that causes embarrassment to the person who makes it”.
- In the same Joker story, there are references to John Dillinger, Douglas Corrigan, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Trojan Horse which Joker bases his "error" crimes on.
