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 »

Even the title isn't clever
21 March 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is one of the two short(it's the middle in length, at about 7 minutes running time) Looney Tunes subjects on the 2-Disc Special Edition DVD of Adventures of Robin Hood from 1938. It has Daffy thinking he's Robin, and Friar Tuck Porky doesn't believe it. And like I said, there isn't anything to even the name of this. At least "Rabbit Hood" was a fair pun. So yeah, this is the latter character laughing at and mocking the former as he gets badly hurt and humiliated. And we're supposed to do the same. If we have to laugh at pain, can't it be our own, and not others? You know, it's a potential relief either way, but at least that way it wouldn't be cruel. This is directed by Chuck Jones who I know is one of the favorites for doing these, and since I haven't watched many of these and this one definitely wasn't for me, I can't really say if this is one of his best or not. The animation is nice enough. There is cartoon violence in this, and there are those who will find the depiction of the Sheriff(I think) to be overly effeminate and stereotypical. I recommend this to fans of Merrie Melodies. 5/10
