A bit too cutesey
9 March 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

This animated short is unusually cutesy for a Warner Brothers short. It tells the story of 3 squirrels who do battle with a wolf while playing Robin Hood. It's a one joke short, of interest mainly becauase it was directed by Chuck Jones. However, the voice work by Bernice Hansen and Mel Blanc is excellent.
