Disney-animated version of the Robin Hood tale, with Robin characterised as a fox, Allan-a-Dale a rooster, Little John a bear, Friar Tuck a badger and the Sheriff of Nottingham a wolf. Robin and his merry band rob from the rich and give to the poor while England is ruled by the corrupt King John (voiced by Peter Ustinov) - whose snake advisor Hiss looks and sounds suspiciously like Terry-Thomas!

This was the first film I ever saw at the cinema, way back in 1973 when I was a small boy (when I did not know or care about aspect ratios). I used to live near Sherwood Forest so this film and the legend of Robin Hood were, and still are, very special for me.

It is great to see this film again on DVD in a re-mastered special edition. I found the picture and sound quality to be very good indeed even though I watched it on a small portable player. The film features some excellent actors doing the characters' voices - Peter Ustinov and Terry Thomas are perfect as Prince John and Sir Hiss and Phil Harris is a cool Little John even though this character seems to be a bit of a rehash of Baloo, the bear from Disney's version of The Jungle Book.

The animals chosen to play the human characters are an excellent choice. Robin Hood is a cunning fox and Maid Marian is of course a sexy vixen (Monica Evans has one of the most beautiful voices you will ever hear) and The Sheriff of Nottingham is a greedy fat wolf. A special mention must also be given to country singer Roger Miller as Alan-A-Dale (a rooster in this film) who narrates the tale and provides several of the songs.

The extras on this disc include a couple of fun games which younger children will enjoy and an unused alternative ending, albeit in storyboard form. I think it is a matter of opinion whether or not this ending would have been a better one than the one they actually used. I personally think this alternative ending is a bit dark compared to the tone of the rest of the film but it is interesting to be able to see it all the same.

I bought this film on DVD recently for my four year old great grandson. I didn’t think he would like it but he must have watched it twenty times since he got it and he can now sing most of the songs off by heart! He also watches it with his five year old cousin and even friends from other houses in the street. It seems to have real appeal to younger children even though it is over 40 years old.
It is a cartoon film produced towards the end of the ‘golden age’ of hand-drawn cartoons before the advent of computer generated imagery (CGI). The old hand-drawn cartoons had a depth of colour and tone that is simply not achievable in CGI. Anybody who remembers the old Tome and Jerry cartoons or ‘Looney Tunes’ cartoon from the 1940s and 1950s will know what I mean. The artwork can only be described as beautiful and the attention to detail is incredible. Young children still find it mesmerising.
The fila has been digitally remastered so it looks as good now as it did on the cinema screen all those years ago when it was first released. The sound quality is excellent.
The story is loosely based on the legend of Robin Hood. Even today most people will be familiar with the basic story line. The characters are appropriate animals. Robin Hood is clever and cunning so he is a fox while Little John is a kind of big cuddly bear. The voices are also very well matched. Robin Hood has a kind of kind and cultured neutral English accent while Prince John has a kind of sly and slightly sinister voice (the classic Terry Thomas voice). A big Rooster acts as a kind of narrator. He tells the backgrounds tory and links some of the scenes together. In my opinion it is still thoroughly entertaining and stands as one of the Disney masterpieces of the pre CGI era.
In my opinion it is very much a children’s film.

A 'minor classic'? I'm sorry Amazon, but no way. Of all the Disney cartoons, Robin Hood has ALWAYS been my favourite - just look at the other reviews or compare RH's price with other cartoons of it's age; whose kept it's value when everything else is being sold for £2.99? Robin Hood.

Okay, so there are so cheesey moments - it's Disney for crying out loud! Robin is the cheeky chappy you can't bare see loose, Maid Marion isn't a wishy-washy damsel in distress (well, not all the time) and Alan Rickman fan though I am, Pat Buttram is the ONLY sheriff.

Disney's running out of ideas (Little Mermaid 2 anyone?) and frankly the drawings (esp the human ones) are getting worse. Kids may like the new stuff, but kids AND adults will like the older ones. And with my kid sister ranting over the BBCs new Robin Hood series, I think it's about time I got her watching this version. Either that or the old Maid Marion & Her Merry Men series!

this has been my favourite disney film since i was young. not many people have heard of it, but i absolutely love it! i can't quite pinpoint exactly what it is about it, just that the film never gets boring, and robin's cheeky smile is great!
its perfect for children, and beats the new disney films by far.

when asked what my favourite film is ill invariably say disneys Robin hood and the blank looks on the questioners face normally is just a comon occurance that until they have seen the film they dont understand why its so good!

Children and adults alike will love this film, ok the graphics are dated but for 1973 they are very good, the story is jolly, heart warming and a great take on an old fable.

The characters are all animals which makes a change, they are all voiced amazingly and fitting to the animal in every way! The film isnt long but with small children thats ok and the music gets stuck in your head for a good day after seeing it!

Its a definate classic for families and for the disney lover this is a must have. if you havent seen it wtch it youll love it i guarentee!
