Storyline

A long-running series of adventures featuring Robin of Loxley - Robin Hood - and his group of Sherwood-Forest-based freedom fighters. Robin and his men protected England from the evil machinations of Prince John while good King Richard was away at the Crusades. The series was primarily intended for children, and was unusual in that it frequently re-used the same actors in different roles, or different actors in a recurring roles. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

Trivia

Blacklisted in Hollywood, Ring Lardner Jr. and Ian McLellan Hunter, wrote almost the entire first season of this British-filmed series under a variety of pen-names. The show's British producers were fully aware of this deception, but Lardner and Hunter still changed pseudonyms every few episodes to keep the American syndication executives from asking to meet the series' writers.

Fond memories of a great TV series!
18 June 2005 | by stephen-418See all my reviews

I have very fond memories of this series from when it was first aired in Britain in the fifties. In fact, it was my favourite at the time. I remember being amazed that, in one episode, Robin Hood had an 'evil twin' who could appear in the same shots as him. I also used to love the sword-fighting. And, of course, there was that moment when Robin said 'I have a plan . . . ' and the scene faded out . . .

I saw some of the episodes again more recently and realised from an adult perspective how good it really was: the goodies were good, the baddies were bad and the actors didn't mumble!

But what I still haven't found out is how the look-out always managed to shoot his arrow with the message wrapped round it into the tree in Robin Hood's camp without pranging someone!
