The story of the legendary outlaw is portrayed with the characters as humanoid animals.
The famous gap on Terry-Thomas' teeth was incorporated into the design of the character he voices, Sir Hiss (it makes a handy opening for his forked tongue to dart out).
You know, there's been a heap of legends and tall tales about Robin Hood. All different too. Well, we folks of the animal kingdom have our own version. It's the story of what really happened in Sherwood Forest.
Historical inaccuracies inherent to most versions of the Robin Hood legend. In the movie, Prince John is shown raising taxes on the poor people. In reality, Prince/King John Lackland was notorious for raising taxes on the nobility. Similarly, King Richard is depicted as a loving king who guards England dearly, when in reality he spent all of his short leisure time at his French estate, and once said he'd sell London to the highest bidder if he could.
On the DVD version of the film, the opening credits are different. There are occasional pauses in the original animation where additional voice actor credits are inserted. This is not in the original release, or in the earlier VHS versions.
