    This is one of the two most classic Robin Hood adaptations every put on screen, and it does not disappoint. This family adaptation doesn't shy away from the hopeless plight of the villagers, and the theme of hopelessness doesn't interfere with the swashbuckling adventure. The silliness here is kept to a minimum when compared to similar Disney fare, and never gets to the point where it might begin to affect the plot. It's fun, creative, charismatic, and the whole movie is downright iconic, from Friar Tuck to the stork disguise at the archery tournament. Closest comparison: It's like The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) by way of The Sword in the Stone (Disney). Setting: Action Adventure Plot: Heist Adventure Tone: Family Adventure

    The animated Disney movie Robin Hood has some great villains but not very interesting main characters or a compelling story. While that wouldn't be especially bad in other Disney films, Robin Hood's sketchy animation and odd dialogue make it worth watching once, but not again in the near future.

    A "merry" piece of animation that many may have forgotten about.

    When you set aside the bad habit this movie has of blatantly recycling animation, with even some of the animators themselves being annoyed by this, this movie really isn't that bad. And no, this isn't just the nostalgia talking because, like most people, this was my first Robin Hood adaptation, I actually thought that critics were way too harsh on it. It certainly isn't just a glorified Zootopia prototype. If anything, despite actually garnering positive reviews at the time, the movie came out at the worst possible time it could've in Disney's history. Because, you know, nobody had any idea what to do in the aftermath of Walt Disney's death and this was the first one completely independent of him, whilst he did manage to greenlight some movies prior to his death. The story remains true to the Robin Hood spirit without trying to imitate certain two most recent adaptations have, the voice acting is more-or-less top-notch work, the humour is well-timed, the writers did do a decent strategic job at selecting which animals should represent which iconic character and, despite the corner-cutting involved, the action is surprisingly well-directed. The climax is really good, going from quiet and, as somebody who has a soft spot for stealth games, somewhat anxiety-inducing to fast-paced action. It's really well-directed. Robin Hood is an underrated entry in the Disney Animated Canon that is really much, much better than most people, especially critics, give it credit for, recycled animation notwithstanding.

    Everyone knows this story, so it's nothing new. Typical Disney style and shenanigans. But...can someone please tell me why cartoon King John has c*****g and b*****e k***s? Cause it made me uncomfy.

    Another adorable fairy tale from Disney. Wolfgang Reitherman's animated adventure Robin Hood (1973) is a sweet family film and a wonderful retelling of the historical Robin of Locksley, who stole from the rich to give to the poor during the reign of King John of England. Peter Ustinov's voice for the wretched King John is hilarious and whimpering as he makes John a cowardly lion and a fearful leader. His sucking of the thumb is just icing on the critical cake. Writer Ken Anderson really lets John have it as the movie has fuzzy animal characters screaming out in defiance, "Death to Tyrants!" I like how Disney teaches children about the value of defying a tyrannical government and unjust taxes all while portraying Robin Hood as a heroic fox and daring archer. Wolfgang Reither's brisk direction keeps you laughing and smiling alongside Robin and his gang of merry men (animals) for 83 relaxing minutes thanks to Tom Acosta and James Melton's surefire editing. I cannot believe how short and sweet Robin Hood is upon revisiting this delightful Disney picture. Jean Midre and Francois Leonard's cinematography features cute close-ups of Robin Hood and Maid Marian that are very memorable as they focus on their affectionate eyes. Maid Marian is such a cute fox design. All the forest backdrops display Disney's hand drawn animation prowess in stellar fashion. I adore George Bruns' folk score with some big band jazz stuff thrown in here for a very light hearted tone for Robin Hood. Brian Bedford's voice for Robin Hood is so lackadaisical, relaxing, and charming. He's the ideal voice for the foxy bandit. Monica Evans sounds so sincere and kind as the gentle and graceful Maid Marian. Phil Harris' deep chipper rumbling voice is perfect as the stout Little John. Pat Buttram is great as the redneck sounding The Sheriff of Nottingham. Ken Curtis and George Lindsey are outrageous as the dumb pair of vultures Nutsy and Trigger, respectively. Carole Shelley is funny as the Scottish Lady Kluck. Andy Devine is boisterous as the loud Friar Tuck. I really enjoyed the slinking and hissing performance of voice actor Terry-Thomas as Sir Hiss. Candy Candido cameos as the crocodile captain of the guard. In short, Robin Hood is a quick blast of energy and laughter sure to entertain all families forever.
