But since it approached from an angle, there's no way it could split it right the way down the length of it.

Suggested correction: This is not a continuity mistake. Earlier in the film, Prince John's crown becomes damaged by crashing through an iron gate with the guards. You can see the crown is crooked and bent. The three smaller gems on the crown are actually one of the large gems broken as a result of crashing through the gate.

Clucky: But of course, my dear. Believe me, someday soon, your Uncle King Richard will have an outlaw for an in-law.

Question: Why did little John like the fact that the hubcaps were made of gold? I thought he wasn't greedy like Prince John.

Answer: Just like Robin Hood, he would have likely given them to the poor who could have sold the hubcaps themselves.
