Robinhood Makes Good is featured on a video I used to watch as a kid. It's been a long time since I've seen this short, so after seeing it again, it took me a while to remember how the story went. It's just one of those cartoons that doesn't really stand out. It does try to get too cutesy when the squirrels go into song about their Robin Hood fighting. I definitely could have done without that! Then a fox captures the two older, bullying squirrels, and it's up to the youngest squirrel to save them. I will have to admit that the squirrel's method to saving his brothers was pretty funny, but that's about it. So I guess overall, this cartoon isn't a complete loss, but it's definitely not one for the animation history books.

My IMDb Rating: 5/10
