Saturday Morning Cartoon

Ridley Scott’s version of Robin Hood is hitting theatres this weekend and I thought that this was a good excuse to focus on a few of the animated versions of Robin Hood that are out there. Unfortunately Editor Steve had already tackled the best cartoon version – Rocket Robin Hood.
But there have been several different shows and parodies over years.

In 1972 on the ABC Saturday Superstar Movie, Hanna-Barbera made The Adventures of Robin Hoodnik.

There was a Japanese anime version in 1990 called Robin Hood no Daibōken that ran for 52 episodes.

And finally we have Jim Henson’s Muppet’s doing their take on Robin Hood. The late Lynn Redgrave who passed away this week guest starred as Maid Marion.

  1. The best Robin Hood cartoon? Come on, that’s gotta be the Disney anthropomorphic feature. I mean, really. Music by Roger Miller, fer cryin’ out loud!

  2. Yes, but Disney’s Robin Hood was basically the catalyst for furry culture.

    Thanks to that film, there are more drawings of cartoon animals yiffing on the internet than you can possibly imagine.
