Product description

Product Description

Shun your Shakespeare, chuck away your Chaucer, destroy your DVDs of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle! You ve got to make shelf space for the complete box set of 'Maid Marian and her Merry Men'. Never has so much fun and lunacy been crammed into one small cardboard container. If you tried to squeeze in even one more tiny joke, it would squash the others so badly they d jump out and run home crying to their mummies. Marvel at the relatively young Tony Robinson s hilarious cavortings in the days before he got boring and started digging holes in the mud; watch the hysterically laid back Danny John Jules and realise there is life after Red Dwarf. Gasp at incredible six foot chickens, listen rapt to tales of volcanoes that spew forth mauve custard, and run away terrified from snailiens from outer space. You ll laugh, you ll cry, you ll be sick into a small paper bag and still come back for more... honest! MAID MARIAN AND HER MERRY MEN was consistently number 1 in the children s TV ratings throughout its four series, partly because it was popular with children of all ages, but also because it became 'must see' viewing for students and young adults. It was popular with the critics too, winning a Bafta, an RTS Award and the International Prix Jeunesse. This perfectly conceived historical farce is witty, warm and stylish. An excellent cast and faultless writing has drawn comparisons to Blackadder, Red Dwarf, and The Young Ones. It is one of those rare programmes made for and enjoyed by both children and adults and has secured a huge fan-base in the seventeen years since the first series was initially transmitted. Written by and starring Tony Robinson as the Sherriff of Nottingham, Tony has been a regular on our TV screens since he got his big break playing Baldrick in Blackadder. He is the presenter of the successful series Time Team and played the part of Vernon Crumley in the Bafta Award-winning HOGFATHER. THE COMPLETE SERIES ONE It s a little known fact that Robin Hood was a complete wimp who took all the credit for the grit in Maid Marian s guts. It was, in fact, she who assembled and fought oppression with a bunch of prats known as the Merry Men a dwarf called Little Ron, a Rastafarian, an ugly dolt by the name of Rabies and a yuppie called Robin of Kensington. Doing incredibly brave things like piercing their ears and rescuing tadpoles, Marian and her men combat the cruelty of a mad, bad king called John and his villainous Sheriff of Nottingham. THE COMPLETE SERIES TWO Prepare to be horrified by the beastly Beast of Bolsover and the foul things he does to our beloved Sheriff. Laugh your hands and feet off as the stupid villagers don brown noses in aid of charity. Learn to loathe Maid Marian s nemesis, Rotten Rose, she s scheming, manipulative, revengeful and a bit of a slapper. This is entertainment at its nauseating best! THE COMPLETE SERIES THREE Six spanking episodes in which our heroine struggles against aliens, wrestles with giant jelly babies, and gets really hacked off with very thick villagers. Also featuring an additional hour-long episode in which she falls in love with a complete plonker. Not so smart now, are you Marian? THE COMPLETE SERIES FOUR In this, the final series of the muddy extravaganza that is Maid Marian and her Merry Men, Rabies grows wings, Robin turns nasty and the peasants celebrate High Forks night, Remember! Remember! the 27th of April. To quote Robin Hood himself, this series is as funny as Russell the Abbot. Special Features - Audio Commentaries - Quiz Written By Tony Robinson - Maid Marian Karaoke - Trailers - How The Germans Saw It featurette - Hunt The Chicken interactive game - Christmas Special - Tony Robinson, Mark Billingham and David Lloyd on creative writing featurette - Improvised sketches

Great to see this series again. Takes me back to my childhood. I can remember a few episodes & it's still just as good now as it was then.
A very nostalgic throwback 😊

This series is Fantastic!!

It's even better the second time around, this series is written by Tony Robinson and is full of 'adult' comedy that went well over my head when I was a child but means this was like a new series again!!

Well worth every penny

The box set contains all of the eposodes of "Maid Marian and her merry men". Very clever and funny comedy which is easier to follow and lighter than black adder although has similar comedy. It is funny and entertaining for the youngest children and has deeper jokes for adults which is not seen in many programs. I have watched all of the eposodes and would strongly recomend it to anybody.

We used to watch every episode, some twenty years ago, me and my flatmates at university. We were 18, 19 years old and this show was for kids aged 10-14 but we found it hilarious.
One of us had his kid brother staying over for a few days, and he started us off.

It has all the characteristics of great comedy:

It was clever, very well written, contained some brilliant dialogue, more than a few memorable catch-phrases and it was very, very silly.
With a lot of old-fashioned, honest-to-goodness, hit-him-wiv'-a-big-piece-of-rubber-wood or shoot-an-arrow-in-his-behind slapstick thrown in, for cheap and easy laughs, which are the best ones, let's be honest!

And for some twenty years now, every time I've seen people snogging or when people have banged on at me about relationships, engagements, weddings and such I've been singing, far too loudly:

OOOOOOOOOOOH-HOOO-HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO: RABIES IN LOVE!!!

I enjoyed this series when it first aired in the 1990s and wanted to see it again so was thrilled when they released it onto dvds. What let this set down, however, is the inconsistancy between the available options on each disc. While you have the chance to play each individual episode on some discs you can only use play all on others and this can be quite frustrating. Also the lack of episode list in the set makes it tough to know where you stopped and how many episodes you have left to go. That said the episodes themselves are still as brilliant as ever with the witty characters and humerous musical numbers and once you get past the irritation of the options menu it is well worth a watch.

I bought this for my niece as it is one of only a few childrens' programmes that confronts sexual stereotypes. Instead of Robin Hood being the hero, he is actually a bit dim and useless. Marian(the woman) is actually the smart, witty, skilful one. I think it is really important that characters like this exist for girls as it may open their eyes to new possibilities outside normal sexual stereotypes. Good on Tony Robinson for writing this. It is smart, stupid, funny and interesting and I would definitely recommend it!
