Plot Alan-a-Dale introduces the story of Robin Hood
Robin Hood
and Little John, two outlaws living in the Sherwood Forest, where they rob from the rich and give to the poor townsfolk of Nottingham, despite the efforts of the Sheriff of Nottingham
Nottingham
to stop them. Meanwhile, Prince John and his assistant Sir Hiss arrive in Nottingham
Nottingham
on a tour of the kingdom. Knowing the royal coach is laden with riches, Robin and Little John rob Prince John by disguising themselves as fortune tellers. The embarrassed Prince John then puts a bounty on their heads and makes the Sheriff his personal tax collector, who takes pleasure in collecting funds from the townsfolk, including hidden money from the crippled blacksmith Otto and a single farthing from a young rabbit, Skippy, who had just received it as a birthday present. However, Robin Hood, disguised as a beggar, sneaks in and gives back some money to the family, as well as his hat and a bow to Skippy in honor of his birthday. Skippy and his friends test out the bow, but Skippy fires an arrow into the grounds of Maid Marian's castle. The children sneak inside, meeting Maid Marian
Maid Marian
and her attendant Lady Kluck. Skippy "rescues" Marian from Lady Kluck, who pretends to be a pompous Prince John. Later, when she is alone with Kluck, Maid Marian
Maid Marian
reveals she and Robin were childhood sweethearts, but they have not seen one another for years; Kluck consoles her not to give up on her love for Robin. Meanwhile, Friar Tuck
Friar Tuck
visits Robin and Little John, explaining that Prince John is hosting an archery tournament, and the winner will receive a kiss from Maid Marian. Robin decides to participate in the tournament disguised as a stork whilst Little John
Little John
disguises himself as the Duke of Chutney to get near Prince John. Robin wins the tournament, but Prince John exposes him and has him arrested for execution despite Maid Marian's pleas. Little John
Little John
threatens Prince John in order to release Robin, which leads to a fight between Prince John's soldiers and the townsfolk, all of whom escape to Sherwood Forest. As Robin and Maid Marian
Maid Marian
fall in love again, the townsfolk have a troubadour festival spoofing Prince John, describing him as the "Phony King of England", and the song soon becomes popular with John's soldiers. Enraged by the insult, Prince John triples the taxes, imprisoning most of the townsfolk who cannot pay. A paltry coin gets deposited into the poor box at Friar Tuck's church, which gets seized by the Sheriff. Enraged that government has meddled in his church, Friar Tuck
Friar Tuck
lashes out at the Sheriff, for which he is quickly arrested. Prince John orders Friar Tuck
Friar Tuck
hung, knowing Robin Hood
Robin Hood
will come out of hiding to rescue his friend and give the potential for Robin to be caught. Robin and Little John
Little John
learn of the plot and sneak in during the night, with Little John
Little John
managing to free all of the prisoners whilst Robin steals Prince John's taxes, but Sir Hiss awakens to find Robin fleeing. Chaos follows as Robin and the others try to escape to Sherwood Forest. The Sheriff corners Robin after he is forced to return to rescue Tagalong, Skippy's little sister. During the chase, Prince John's castle catches fire and Robin jumps into the moat, where he is seemingly skewered by the soldiers' arrows. Little John
Little John
and Skippy fear Robin is lost, but he surfaces safely after using a reed as a breathing tube. Later, King Richard returns to England, placing his brother, Sir Hiss and the Sheriff under arrest and allows his niece Maid Marian
Maid Marian
to marry Robin Hood. Cast

Production

"As director of story and character concepts, I knew right off that sly Robin Hood
Robin Hood
must be a fox. From there it was logical that Maid Marian should be a pretty vixen. Little John, legendarily known for his size, was easily a big overgrown bear. Friar Tuck
Friar Tuck
is great as a badger, but he was also great as a pig, as I had originally planned. Then I thought the symbol of a pig might be offensive to the Church, so we changed him. Richard the Lion-hearted, of course, had to be a regal, proud, strong lion; and his pathetic cousin [historically, and in the movie, his brother] Prince John, the weak villain, also had to be a lion, but we made him scrawny and childish. I originally thought of a snake as a member of the poor townspeople but one of the other men here suggested that a snake would be perfect as a slithering consort [Sir Hiss] to mean Prince John."

Ken Anderson[3]

Around the time of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937, Walt Disney became interested in adapting the twelfth-century legend of Reynard
Reynard
the Fox.[3] However, the project languished due to Walt's concern that Reynard
Reynard
was an unsuitable choice for a hero.[4] In a meeting held on February 12, 1938, Disney commented "I see swell possibilities in 'Reynard', but is it smart to make it? We have such a terrific kid audience...parents and kids together. That's the trouble – too sophisticated. We'll take a nosedive doing it with animals."[5] For Treasure Island, Walt seriously considered three animated sections, each one of the Reynard
Reynard
tales, to be told by Long John Silver to Jim Hawkins as moral fables. Ultimately, the idea was nixed as Treasure Island would become the studio's first fully live-action film. Over the years, the studio decided to make Reynard the villain of a musical feature film named Chanticleer and Reynard (based on Edmond Rostand's Chanticleer) but the production was scrapped in the early 1960s, in favor of The Sword in the Stone (1963). While The Aristocats
The Aristocats
was in production, Ken Anderson began exploring possibilities for the next film. Studio executives favored a "classic" tale as the subject for the next film, in which Anderson suggested the tale of Robin Hood, which was received enthusiastically.[6] He blended his ideas of Robin Hood
Robin Hood
by incorporating that the fox character could be slick but still use his skills to protect the community.[7] Additionally, Anderson wanted to set the film in the Deep South desiring to recapture the spirit of Song of the South. However, the executives were wary of the reputation of Song of the South
Song of the South
which was followed by Wolfgang Reitherman's decision to set the film in its traditional English location inspired by The Story of Robin Hood
Robin Hood
and His Merrie Men.[8] Veteran writer Larry Clemmons came on board the project by writing a script with dialogue that was later storyboarded by other writers.[7] As production went further along, Robin Allan wrote in his book Walt Disney and Europe, that "Ken Anderson wept when he saw how his character concepts had been processed into stereotypes for the animation on Robin Hood."[9] According to Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, one such casualty was the concept of making the Sheriff of Nottingham
Nottingham
a goat as an artistic experiment to try different animals for a villain, only to be overruled by the director who wanted to keep to the villainous stereotype of a wolf instead.[10] Additionally, Anderson wanted to include the Merry Men
Merry Men
into the film, which was again overridden by Reitherman because he wanted a "buddy picture" reminiscent of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, so Little John
Little John
was the only Merry Man who remained in the film, whle Friar Tuck
Friar Tuck
was put as a friend of Robin's who lived in Nottingham, and Alan-a-Dale was turned into the narrator.[11] Because of the time spent on developing several settings and auditioning actors to voice Robin Hood, production fell behind schedule.[8] In order to meet its deadline, the animators decided to recycle dance sequences from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Jungle Book, and The Aristocats.[12] Casting By October 1970, most of the voice actors were confirmed, with the exception of Tommy Steele
Tommy Steele
cast in the title role.[13] Steele himself was chosen because of his performance in The Happiest Millionaire while Peter Ustinov
Peter Ustinov
was cast because Reitherman enjoyed his presence on the set of Blackbeard's Ghost. However, Steele was unable to make his character sound more heroic,[8] and his replacement came down to final two candidates which were Bernard Fox
Fox
and Brian Bedford,[14] with the latter being chosen. Meanwhile, Louis Prima
Louis Prima
was so angered by not being considered for a role that he personally paid the recording expenses for the subsequent album, Let's "Hear" it For Robin Hood, which he sold to Disneyland Records.[15] Release The film premiered at the Radio City Music Hall
Radio City Music Hall
on November 9, 1973.[16] The film was re-released on March 26, 1982. It was released to videocassette on December 4, 1984 becoming the first installment of the Walt Disney
Walt Disney
Classics home video label.[17] Disney thought the idea of releasing any of its animated classics (known as the "untouchables") might threaten future theatrical reissue revenue. However, Robin Hood
Robin Hood
was viewed as the first choice since it was not held in such high esteem as some of the other titles, and was less likely to get another theatrical release as its 1982 reissue proved to be disappointing.[18] It was later re-released becoming the first 1991 (as part of Walt Disney
Walt Disney
Classics Collection), 1994, and 1998 (as part of the Walt Disney
Walt Disney
Masterpiece Collection). It was first released on UK VHS in 1987 followed by a 1989 re-issue. It was re-released in 1992. In January 2000, Walt Disney
Walt Disney
Home Video launched the Gold Classic Collection, with Robin Hood
Robin Hood
re-issued on VHS and DVD on July 4, 2000.[19] The DVD contained the film in its 1.33:1 aspect ratio, and was accompanied with special features including a trivia game and the cartoon short "Ye Olden Days".[20] The remastered "Most Wanted Edition" DVD (" Special
Special
Edition" in the UK) was released in 2006 and featured a deleted scene/alternate ending, as well as a 16:9 matted transfer to represent its original theatrical screen ratio. On August 6, 2013, the film was released as the 40th Anniversary Edition on a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack. Reception Critical reaction Robin Hood
Robin Hood
has received mixed to positive reviews from film critics.[21] Praise went to the characters, action scenes and music, while criticism was aimed at the recycled scenes of animation.[22] Judith Crist
Judith Crist
said it was "nicely tongue-in-cheek without insult to the intelligence of either child or adult." She also stated that it "has class – in the fine cast that gives both voice and personality to the characters, in the bright and brisk dialogue, in its overall concept."[23] Vincent Canby
Vincent Canby
of The New York Times
The New York Times
wrote that it "should ... be a good deal of fun for toddlers whose minds have not yet shriveled into orthodoxy" and he called the visual style "charmingly conventional".[24] The Montreal Gazette
The Montreal Gazette
said that when "Disney cartoon films ... are good, they are very good" and that "there are not many films around these days which an entire family can attend and enjoy. Robin Hood
Robin Hood
is one of them."[25] New York magazine called it "a sweet, funny, slam-bang, good-hearted Walt Disney
Walt Disney
feature cartoon with a fine cast" and said it was "a feast for the eyes for kiddies and Disney nostalgics."[26] The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes
Rotten Tomatoes
reported that the film received a 52% approval rating with an average rating of 5.4/10 based on 25 reviews. The website's consensus states that "One of the weaker Disney adaptations, Robin Hood
Robin Hood
is cute and colorful but lacks the majesty and excitement of the studio's earlier efforts."[27] Box office On its initial release, Robin Hood
Robin Hood
grossed $9 million in the United States.[28] However, it has been reported that the film grossed $35 million during its initial release.[29][30] Awards and honors The song "Love" was nominated for Best Original Song at the 46th Academy Awards but lost to "The Way We Were" from the film of the same name.
