During the late second and third seasons, the show shared a lot of animation and background music with Spider-Man (1967). Two episodes of the series ("From Menace to Menace" and "Dementia Five") had almost all their animation recycled for episodes "Phantom from the Depths of Time" and "Revolt in the Fifth Dimension" of Spider-Man (1967) by simply substituting Rocket Robin Hood with Spider-Man on the animated cels. The dialogue from these episodes was reused too with Spider-Man saying the same lines and Rocket Robin Hood and his supporters. See more »
Rocket Robin Hood, the happy outlaw of outer-planetary space is a direct descendant of Robin Hood of old. He's fast with a joyful laugh, a ready jest, and a quiver full of futuristic arrows. Robin robs from the cosmic rich to give to the astral poor. He's fun. He's fantastic. Rocket Robin Hood - merriest of the Merry Men in the astounding year 3000.

I watched this several times on teletoon retro. I also remember seeing it maybe 5 years ago too.
Like dumb kids we called it Krantz crap cartoons. It IS pretty bad animation, but I like the idea of Robin Hood in space. This is certainly not anywhere close to being a favourite show of mine. In fact almost the opposite is true. But I did get some enjoyment from it, if for nothing else the wild idea of a space Robin Hood.
I hope they keep running this even if it is old. Cause it's fun to kick back and watch it when you've got nothing else to do and see what cartoons were like way back when.
Now for you guys that like all the new stuff, you probably will dis this pretty bad, but you gotta look at when it was made. 1966 is almost ancient history.
Looking back on this, I guess I should explain the "Krantz crap" comment. Krantz films distributed several animated shows (I think Trillium in Toronto actually made Rocket Robin Hood) and the name of course always came up at the end. I think Krantz did Spiderman cartoons, Rocket Robin Hood, and maybe others.
