Fritz the Cat may have lost one of his lives in the comics, but in his new movie, he has eight more lives left to go! While his wife screams at him, Fritz lights up a joint and reminiscences about what could have been.
During the late second and third seasons, the show shared a lot of animation and background music with Spider-Man (1967). Two episodes of the series ("From Menace to Menace" and "Dementia Five") had almost all their animation recycled for episodes "Phantom from the Depths of Time" and "Revolt in the Fifth Dimension" of Spider-Man (1967) by simply substituting Rocket Robin Hood with Spider-Man on the animated cels. The dialogue from these episodes was reused too with Spider-Man saying the same lines and Rocket Robin Hood and his supporters. See more »
Rocket Robin Hood, the happy outlaw of outer-planetary space is a direct descendant of Robin Hood of old. He's fast with a joyful laugh, a ready jest, and a quiver full of futuristic arrows. Robin robs from the cosmic rich to give to the astral poor. He's fun. He's fantastic. Rocket Robin Hood - merriest of the Merry Men in the astounding year 3000.

Rocket Robin Hood was a clever animated version of the adventures of Robin Hood and the Merry Men but with futuristic twists. Instead of being set long ago in Merry Olde England it's far in the future; instead of Sherwood Forest we have Sherwood Asteroid; and Nottinghamshire becomes N.O.T.T. or National Outer-Space Terrestrial Territories. Definitely one that would appeal to kids although it must be admitted that the humor would appeal best to adults, same way as the awful groaners in series such as Batman and The Green Hornet weren't aimed at kids either. It's good, family fun and so what if it isn't the greatest effort made in this regard -- it is still enjoyable after all these years. N.O.T.T. to be missed in my opinion!
