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!

One of the great classics of animation
4 November 2008 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

One of the great classics of animation, Chuck Jones's 'Robin Hood Daffy' is a sumptuous and hilarious short from the late era of Warner Bros. cartoons. Based on the glorious Warner production 'The Adventures of Robin Hood', 'Robin Hood Daffy' combines subtle character comedy and broad slapstick with an astonishingly perfect balance. The famous "buck and a quarter quarterstaff" scene that opens the film is the finest example of this. Daffy's wild thrashing around is punctuated by his quiet run through of how the routine should go as he takes time out to establish just where he went wrong. It's a classic scene with some terrific animation as the chortling Porky Pig defeats Daffy Duck at a duel with very little effort. Compare this scene and the laughing fits that the characters break into afterwards with the same scene from 'The Adventures of Robin Hood' and it becomes even funnier as you realise how close to the source material it actually is.

There are plenty of other classic moments in 'Robin Hood Daffy' ("Yoiks and away"), each punctuated by the frolicking image of the weary traveller that Daffy is attempting to rob obliviously passing by the latest scene of Daffy's humiliation. Apart from the gorgeous layouts, the brilliant gags and the wonderful performance by Mel Blanc, 'Robin Hood Daffy' is also notable for how Jones uses the characters, particularly Porky Pig. Porky had long been a straight man whose star billing was contradicted by the way his co-stars upstaged him. Relegating Porky to supporting player breathed new life into him and, as is the case with all Jones's Porky and Daffy genre parodies, Porky excels himself. His laidback, overly-jolly friar is the perfect foil to inspire escalating frustration in Daffy as he tries in vain to prove he's Robin Hood, never thinking to just point out one of the many Wanted posters bearing his image. 'Robin Hood Daffy' is an exceptional piece of work that everyone of a certain age remembers fondly. It's another in an extraordinarily long line of Chuck Jones classics.
