Robin Hood

The story of the legendary Robin Hood is told by a travelling minstrel, Allan-a-Dale. England is at war, and Prince John is ruling the land, after usurping his brother King Richard. Aided by his sidekicks, Sir Hiss & the Sheriff of Nottingham, he is taxing the residents of Nottingham to the limit.

Along with his friends, Little John, Friar Tuck and his band of merry men, Robin Hood embarks on a series of exciting adventures to outfox the Prince. Together they help King Richard reclaim his throne, and Robin to win the hand of the fair Maid Marion.

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.

Robin Hood: Faint hearts never won fair lady.

Little John: You know somethin', Robin. I was just wonderin', are we good guys or bad guys? You know, I mean, uh? Our robbin' the rich to feed the poor.
Robin Hood: Rob? Tsk tsk tsk. That's a naughty word. We never rob. We just sort of borrow a bit from those who can afford it.
Little John: Borrow? Boy, are we in debt.

Friar Tuck: Why you flint-hearted, no-good...
Sheriff of Nottingham: Take it easy, preacher. It ain't Sunday, you know.

Clucky: Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Marian: Or forgetful

The way it REALLY happened...


Just before Robin Hood burns the food, Little John hangs up a yellow shirt, but moments he's seen hanging it up again.
During the film, the rings on Prince John's fingers change to his other hand, and sometimes aren't there at all.
When Skippy is in the castle courtyard, the bow he was holding disappears, and a wooden sword appears on his belt.
During the scene where Robin Hood and Little John are trying to steal his taxes, Prince John's paws change from having four fingers to three.
