English term or phrase: Example of a "team"
Can anyone suggest a "team" that is well known to the average Dutch reader or television viewer, something comparable to Batman and Robin?

Explanation:
If Batman and Robin are actually named in your original text I wouldn't translate it. They are well known to the Dutch.
