An imaginative Disney version of the Robin Hood legend. Fun and romance abound as the swashbuckling hero of Sherwood Forest and his valiant sidekick plot one daring adventure after another to outwit the greedy Prince John (Sir Peter Ustinov) and his partner as they put the tax squeeze on the poor.Written by
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 »
Trigger's quiver appears and disappears at random - particularly noticeable during the scene when Robin takes the place of Nutsy. See more »
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.

On the DVD version of the film, the opening credits are different. There are occasional pauses in the original animation where additional voice actor credits are inserted. This is not in the original release, or in the earlier VHS versions. See more »
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.
