Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Every time the story of Robin Hood is turned into a popular theatrical film, dozens of second-rate cinematic retellings of the legend pop up out of the woodwork. The 1985 Robin Hood is a 60-minute cartoon version, issued on videocassette to cash in on the recent video release of Disney's 1973 Robin Hood animated feature. Essentially, the 1985 version rehashes the "original" story, the first meetings with the various Merrie Men, and the foiling of Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham. Been there, done that. This poorly animated Robin Hood was packaged for public consumption by Children's Video of America Inc.
