The Show

Behind the Scenes

  • Alternative Title: This episode was originally titled "Robin Sparkles" and has been known under this title in some repeat airings. The change was made because the creators wanted to keep Robin's secret under wraps until it was revealed in the episode. This way, people who came across the Robin Sparkles MySpace page would not think it's connected to the show.
