When Bugs tries to take a carrot from the King's field in Sherwood Forest he's caught in the act by the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Errol Flynn appears at the end as Robin Hood in a clip from The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938). "Rabbit Hood" is included as a special feature in the Warner Blu-ray of the movie.
Don't you worry, never fear, Ro...
Bugs Bunny: Yeah, I know, Robin Hood will soon be here. He robs from the rich and he gives to the poor. Yo-ho-ho, he goes skipping, tra-la-la, through Sherwood Forest, helping the needy and the oppressed. Ah, you've been saying...
The Sheriff of Nottingham says he wants a six-room Tudor cottage. Robin Hood antedates the Tudors by about 300 years.
Warner Brothers' best animation cartoons writer, Michael Maltese wrote Rabbit Hood (1949) and Duck Amuck (1953). The opening credits of both were almost written in Old English and each title is a reminder of John Hancock's special signature on the United States' Declaration of Independence.
The ABC version of this cartoon cuts the part after The Sheriff of Nottingham is duped into building a house in the King's garden to remove the part where The Sheriff gnashes his teeth (with carpenter nails in them) and shouts, "Oooh! I hate myself!" then hits himself over the head with the hammer several times while yelling, "I do, I do, I do!". Also the infamous "knighting scene" (where Bugs bashes the Sheriff over the head several times with a scepter) was drastically cut short.
