Goofs

During all the commotion after the archery tournament, a duel erupts between Robin and the Alligator announcer, who is wielding a sword and shield. Shortly after the fight, the alligator can be seen in a completely different area about to announce to the audience. He then gets run over by the moving tent that passed him half a minute ago. He also doesn't have a sword and a shield. 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.

Why is Robin Hood Disney's Step Child?
26 July 2006 | by lrlindsaySee all my reviews

Disney's Robin Hood is my all time favorite Disney animation movie and right up there with one of my favorite all time movies. I can practically recite every word from "Robin Hood and Little John Walking through the Forest" to "There's the church bells someone's gett'n hitched". Yet it's hardly ever mentioned, it's always been hard to find and you can never get a poster. The songs are never lauded and they should be "The Phoney King of England" is a hoot! And even though "Love" was nominated for an Oscar, it's an obscure fact.

The animation is beautiful! Those scenes of the castle & the church in the rain - you would think it was shot rather than drawn. The dialog is smart with subtleties & wit. The character's motives are seen and not told. It's not dumb down at all for kids. It's more romantic then Lady & The Tramp, Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid combined. And yes, that Fox, Robin Hood himself, voiced by Brian Bedford was and will always be sexy!
