Trivia

Even though he has usurped the throne and refers to himself as 'King', Prince John is not called King John throughout the entire film, except when referred to as 'the Phoney King of England'. Instead, each character refers to him as 'Prince John' even those characters who are employed by him. However, these characters and others who formally meet Prince John do refer to him as 'sire' and 'Your Majesty'. See more »

Goofs

Trigger's quiver appears and disappears at random - particularly noticeable during the scene when Robin takes the place of Nutsy. 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.

Disney's Take on the Classic.
4 July 2002 | by tfrizzellSee all my reviews

Disney's animated "Robin Hood" gets somewhat lost in the shuffle of great animated films from the famed studio, but is still a nice piece of entertainment that tells the popular story well. Good songs and fun situations are the greatest assets here. The film lacks the real drama that makes others of its kind better cinematically. Still a good film for the whole family. 4 stars out of 5.
