This is how I will always remember Robin Hood, when I was a kid and I watched this, and you really never forget the stuff you love as a kid.

This is a Disney Film that gets a lot of hate nowadays and almost no one brings it up anymore, and to be honest, I still don't see why. In my tastes, this… More
