| Single funniest moment in movie history!
Great wiseacre comedy, like every Chuck Jones Bugs Bunny. One of the few that incorporated live-action cameos. Pay close attention when the Sheriff of Nottingham comes to an immense clearing and spies (to a rapid drumbeat) something red in the distance. He strains and squints to make it out, but all we can see is a red line moving slowly across the meadow straight for him. As it approaches it picks up speed and we can see it is a red carpet rapidly unrolling itself. It finishes unrolling directly at the Sheriff's feet, revealing Bugs dressed as the king of England...and no matter how many times you have seen it, Bugs' expression of serene tranquility and the Sheriff's reaction of utter astonishment and discombobulation will have you on the floor! "I knight you," King Bugs proclaims, "Sir Loin of Beef..."

Quotes

Little John: 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...


Goofs

The Sheriff of Nottingham says he wants a six-room Tudor cottage. Robin Hood antedates the Tudors by about 300 years.


Crazy Credits

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.


Alternate Versions

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.
