Robin Hood

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Robin and Little John are disguised as fortune tellers, Little John "kisses" the three stones out of the rings on Prince John's left hand. In the rest of the scene that left hand changes backwards and forwards between shots with having no rings at all to having rings with only the claws. (This is not the same hand Robin Hood takes the ring from).

Continuity mistake: After Robin and Little John kiss Prince John's hands and steal the jewels, Robin pretends to tell the Prince's fortune. Little John produces a ball full of fireflies and the prince tries to touch it, but Robin hits his hand away. The prince looks at it in shock - but surely he would have noticed the jewel missing from his ring.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, when we see Prince John marching from a significant distance, there are 18 rhino guards walking in front of the two elephants who are dragging Prince John's wagon. In the next shot when the camera is closer to the march, there are only 12.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Robin Hood is talking to Little John and Friar Tuck about entering the archery tournament, Robin Hood jumps up on a wooden platform and is wearing a quiver with two arrows on his back. The quiver vanishes in his next shot where he fires an arrow at a pan hanging from a tree.

Continuity mistake: When Robin Hood and Little John are fortune tellers and Robin kisses Prince John's hand. Robin takes the whole ring but in the next scene there is a ring on his finger with no stone in it. It is on his right hand. (00:12:55)

Trivia: In addition to the party scene already mentioned, some of the dance steps are from The Aristocats. And if you remember from The Aristocats, when they are having their party, some of the animals in Robin Hood look like the cats. Seems like they like to use the same dance routine for many films.

Question: Why doesn't Prince John like having his hand shaken?

Answer: Robin Hood, while disguised as a stork, wouldn't stop shaking Prince John's hand and it was starting to annoy him. Prince John was also robbed by Robin Hood earlier in the movie so he wanted to make sure that the jewels in his rings weren't stolen again.

Answer: Being the prince, he would consider everyone else beneath him and unworthy of touching him.
