Trivia

A possible ending included Robin Hood (Brian Bedford) being wounded after escaping from the castle. In this ending, Prince John (Sir Peter Ustinov), hooded and cloaked, is about to stab Robin, but is interrupted by the arrival of King Richard (Sir Peter Ustinov). The filmmakers felt it made Prince John too sinister, and took away from Robin Hood as the hero. It was also seen as too dark a turn from the otherwise upbeat and carefree tone of the movie, and so it was deleted and replaced with the ending where Robin Hood not only survives unscathed, but Prince John, Sir Hiss (Terry-Thomas), and the Sheriff of Nottingham (Pat Buttram) are imprisoned for their treachery, with Allan-a-Dale (Roger Miller) explaining King Richard's return in front of a wanted poster of Robin Hood that now says "Pardoned by King Richard" on it. The original ending, in storyboard form, is included in the "Most Wanted Edition" DVD. See more »

Goofs

Historical inaccuracies inherent to most versions of the Robin Hood legend. In the movie, Prince John is shown raising taxes on the poor people. In reality, Prince/King John Lackland was notorious for raising taxes on the nobility. Similarly, King Richard is depicted as a loving king who guards England dearly, when in reality he spent all of his short leisure time at his French estate, and once said he'd sell London to the highest bidder if he could.

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.

One of my favorite Disney flicks.
12 November 2000 | by thousandislandSee all my reviews

I was raised on and by this movie. I worshiped it and still do because there's nothing else like it out there. It's a clever and colorful adaptation of the Robin Hood legend with a zoofull of fun characters. It was made during the lull period, after classics like Sleeping Beauty and Lady and the Tramp, but before the Era of Mermaid, so "Robin Hood" has that sketchy, drawn look like "The Jungle Book" and others. But it's cute and endearing, and remains one of my all time favorites. It's true that lots of Furry Artists have tainted and soiled it with X-Rated "Art" (I use the term loosely here...), but it is possible to filter that out and enjoy this movie by itself. Any kid with imagination will love Disney's "Robin Hood" and any critic will be able to appreciate the studio's inventive take on this well-traversed tale. It's a classic.
