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

Maid Marion is such a fox in this.

Maybe the most underrated of all Disney's films. Great characters and great music.

My favourite Disney movie of the 70s! It's so cute having a cartoon of Robin Hood with animals as the characters. Plus there are some catchy tunes in… More
