Did You Know?

Trivia:
A few months before the film's release, the Disney animators needed Peter Ustinov to come back to the Disney Studios to re-record some of his lines as Prince John. The animators made phone calls to New York, London, Paris, Vienna, and Tokyo, trying to locate Ustinov -- only to discover that he was working at the NBC Studios in Burbank that week, a half-mile down the street from them.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Historical inaccuracies inherent to most versions of the Robin Hood legend. In the movie, Prince John is shown raising taxes on the poor people. In reality, Prince/King John Lackland was notorious for raising taxes on the nobility. Similarly, King Richard is depicted as a loving king who guards England dearly, when in reality he spent all of his short leisure time at his French estate, and once said he'd sell London to the highest bidder if he could.See more »

Sis:I told Skippy he was shooting it too high.

Disney's Take on the Classic., 4 July 2002
Author: tfrizzell from United States

Disney's animated "Robin Hood" gets somewhat lost in the shuffle of great animated films from the famed studio, but is still a nice piece of entertainment that tells the popular story well. Good songs and fun situations are the greatest assets here. The film lacks the real drama that makes others of its kind better cinematically. Still a good film for the whole family. 4 stars out of 5.
