Robin Hood

Revealing mistake: After the jailbreak, a number of reaction shots for which the shot background is the villagers in the speeding wagon, not only do they not "bounce" with the wagon, they are not even animated.

Revealing mistake: Just before the archery contest, the Elephants play their trumpet sounds. Both the times they play it, you can notice that the same scene has been used twice.

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)

Hiss: A perfect fit, Sire! Looks most becoming! You look regal, dignified, sincere, masterful, noble.

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.

More trivia for Robin Hood

Question: When Robin Hood jumps into the water near the end of the movie, how did he survive the guards shooting arrows at him? Going underwater doesn't protect you from getting hit by arrows. Arrows can go deeper underwater than bullets can since they have more mass, even though they don't go as fast.

Answer: An arrow may have more mass, but it is also far less dense. Both the shaft and the fletchings will float. As well, these are not full powered English longbows, but shortbows, designed to be used at close range and without the same penetrating power. You can see many videos on Youtube about how arrows will not go deep.
