Did You Know?

Trivia

When Robin Hood (Brian Bedford) and Little John (Phil Harris) first appear on-screen, they wander upon a fallen tree which bridges a river, and each cordially insists that the other cross first. This is a friendly subversion of the traditional Robin Hood narrative, in which Robin Hood and Little John meet while crossing opposite sides of a narrow tree bridge and fight over who will be allowed to cross first.

Goofs

When Robin and Little John are robbing the royal coach, the rhinos guarding it don't appear to notice the 'woman' with a sword approaching, nor do they even notice when the 'woman' is standing under the money chest breaking into it right in front of them. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Alan-A-Dale: You know, there's been a heap of legends and tall tales about Robin Hood. All different too. Well, we folks of the animal kingdom have our own version. It's the story of what really happened in Sherwood Forest.

User Reviews

 
One of my favorite Disney flicks.
12 November 2000 | by thousandislandSee all my reviews

I was raised on and by this movie. I worshiped it and still do because there's nothing else like it out there. It's a clever and colorful adaptation of the Robin Hood legend with a zoofull of fun characters. It was made during the lull period, after classics like Sleeping Beauty and Lady and the Tramp, but before the Era of Mermaid, so "Robin Hood" has that sketchy, drawn look like "The Jungle Book" and others. But it's cute and endearing, and remains one of my all time favorites. It's true that lots of Furry Artists have tainted and soiled it with X-Rated "Art" (I use the term loosely here...), but it is possible to filter that out and enjoy this movie by itself. Any kid with imagination will love Disney's "Robin Hood" and any critic will be able to appreciate the studio's inventive take on this well-traversed tale. It's a classic.
