A long-running series of adventures featuring Robin of Loxley - Robin Hood - and his group of Sherwood-Forest-based freedom fighters. Robin and his men protected England from the evil machinations of Prince John while good King Richard was away at the Crusades. The series was primarily intended for children, and was unusual in that it frequently re-used the same actors in different roles, or different actors in a recurring roles. Written by

Oh, Happy Day - 3 Episodes of Robin Hood on DVD for $1
The first episodes of the Robin Hood series are now 50 years old, and they hold up fantastically well. And to see the list of actors who were in the series is something to behold: Donald Pleasance, Nigel Davenport, Edward Mulhare, Paul Eddington, et al.
I suppose I was not the only young boy to be madly in love with Maid Marian, and even though it's going on 50 years now, I still remember being disappointed when Bernadette O' Farrell was replaced by Patricia Driscoll. In fact, I think it may have broken my heart. Now, however, I find that it's really Patricia Farrell that I prefer!
Anyway, just yesterday I happened to see a DVD containing 3 of the Robin Hood episodes on the shelves of the "world's largest retailer" for the non-Prince Johnly sum of one dollar. I've just watched them all, and they are wonderful. Spoiler: Good triumphs over evil.
