Storyline

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.

If you like Robin Hood, this is one of the best if not the best ever Robin Hood creation ever. Richard Greene plays Robin Hood brilliantly. Growing up he was Robin Hood. If you have never seen this before, where have been, buy yourself a copy of this brilliant masterpiece.
