Trivia Oliver Reed's voice is not heard; he's dubbed throughout by another (anonymous) actor attempting to sound like Reed's normal voice. Reed's own voice is heard in the film's trailer, where he adopts a very camp lisping French accent. See more »
Goofs In one scene, Robin is asked to shoot at a pumpkin. Pumpkins are a New World squash; the earliest references to Robin Hood are from about 1228, well before Columbus' voyage. See more »

Crazy Credits The movie begins and ends with a short song so as to be consistent with the TV series. The song at the end of the movie goes like this: "Friar Tuck his blessing now will give,/The outlaws spare the poor, /And Robin Hood and Marion live/In Sherwood evermore." See more »
