This is another wonderful piece of Disney magic. This version is a bit different though than most versions of the story you've seen or read. All the characters are animals! Robin and Maid Marian are foxes, Little John is a bear, Friar Tuck is a badger, Allen a Dale is a rooster, the Sheriff of Nottingham is a wolf, Prince John is a (cowardly) lion, and his advisor Sir Hiss is a snake. This version includes all of Robin's most famous adventures like his duel with Little John at the river and his winning the archery contest sponsored by the Sheriff.
But the story has been changed somewhat by the addition of Sir Hiss. Actually, it's an improvement since Sir Hiss adds a lot of humor to this movie! Prince John never will listen to Sir Hiss's advice, so Robin and his friends always get the better of Prince John. Another change in the film is Prince John. Unlike his brave brother lion the good King Richard, Prince John is a sniveling cry baby who sucks his thumb when he's distressed and calls for mommy. The interactions between Sir Hiss and Prince John really add a lot to the movie and make it a lot funnier.
This movie really is a great Disney animated classic! The story is a fun twist on the familiar outlaw, the music and songs are catchy and cute, the voice talent is wonderful like with Phil Harris (of Baloo of "The Jungle Book" fame) as Little John, and the animation is top-notch like usual. This is definitely one cartoon you and your kids will enjoy watching over and over!
Many versions of Robin Hood are out there in movie land. But only one is animated with the great brilliance of Disney. This movie is great to have in everybody's Disney collections.
best movie ever. this timeless tale of robin hood told by Disney is one of my absolute favorites and it took some time finding a copy but well worth the hunt. as soon as my VHS arrived i tore open the envelope and threw it into the VCR immediately. The rooster narrator. and i personally feel that the voice of Robin is extremely attractive. this movie is and will for ever be one of my most favorite movies of all time
I BOUGHT IT FOR MY GRANDSON, HE LIKES ROBIN HOOD. AND IT WAS 99 CENTS AND SHIPPING WAS GREAT. HE REALLY LIKES THIS MOVIE AND ALSO I WORK WITH A HANDICAP CHILD AND SHE REALLY ENJOYED THE MOVIE ALSO. SHE LIKE MOST WALT DISNEY MOVIES.
This movie is an amazing Disney classic thankfully bereft of the Princess obsession Disney movies are so keen these days. A story of love without glorifing beauty, wealth, or ultimate power. Delightfully quirky, heartwarming, and belly laughing funny, both you and your child will enjoy this movie.
