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 »

Unique Canadian animation series -- some hallucinatory cartoon !!
I have the entire visual and aural tableau of Rocket Robin Hood indelibly etched into my brain from watching this countless times as a young person. This was aided and abetted by the fact that the show repeated its theme song incessantly in each episode, as well as repeated various parts of each episode to pad out the time. This imparted a strange overlapping, "Groundhog Day' feeling to watching the show. And the whole concept of merry old Robin Hood and his men in some way-out future is totally Lysergic to begin with -- and the cra-zay electronic sound effects only added to the bizarre alternate reality depicted. Those noises were pure, unadulterated SYNTHESIZER-rama.
