Trivia

Daffy's song is set to the tune of the 17th-century ballad "Come Lasses and Lads"; his lyrics are very loosely based on the first verse: Come, Lasses and Lads, get leave of your Dads, And away to the Maypole hie, For ev'ry fair has a sweetheart there And the fiddler's standing by. For Willy shall dance with Jane, And Johnny has got his Joan, To trip it, trip it, trip it, trip it Trip it up and down, To trip it, trip it, trip it, trip it Trip it up and down. See more »

Goofs

At one point Porky Pig (in the character of Friar Tuck) is walking in the forest singing the first verse of "The Ballad of Barbara Allen". Historians and Musicologists have dated the song only to 1666, not to Robin Hood's 12th Century. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Daffy Duck: [singing] Oh... Join up with me, so joyous and free / Away to old Sherwood hie / For I'm Robin Hood, and I'm very good / At avoiding the Sheriff's eye / So we'll trip along merrily / Thro' the green woods so gracefully / To trip it, trip it, trip it, trip it / trip it up and down / To trip it, trip it...
[trips down a hill]
Daffy Duck: ...trip it, trip it, trip it - Whoops! - trip it, trip it, trip it...
[falls into a pond]
Daffy Duck: [finishing song] ... so trip it up and down!

Crazy Credits

The opening titles appear on arrows shot at a target. As the final title card (Starring Daffy Duck) appears, the camera pulls back to reveal that Daffy has been shooting the arrows at point-blank range. He notices the camera and slinks away, shamefaced. See more »

Robin Hood Daffy (1958)

*** (out of 4)

Not quite as great as RABBIT HOOD, here's another Chuck Jones directed take on the Robin Hood legend. This time out Daffy Duck is wearing the tights and after running into Friar (Porky Pig) he must convince him that he is the real Robin. Of course, with Daffy this isn't going to be too easy and he keeps making one big mistake after another. ROBIN HOOD DAFFY contains some very good animation and a rather cute story but at the same time I don't think it comes together as good as it could have. Yes, it's a good movie but it's still middle-ground in terms of Looney Tunes and some of the classics they've done over the years. Some of the highlights includes a scene towards the end where Duffy flashes past the man he's trying to "take" and we see a great scene of him going into some water up up a draw bridge. The animation here is very effective and so is the laugh. The rest of the film contains some fast action but none of it is as funny as it should have been.
