Robin Hood

Trivia: When Robin Hood and all of the villagers are having the party and singing and dancing, look closely at the dance, it's from Snow White. Some of the villagers are the dwarfs and Maid Marion is Snow White. Also, when Little John is dancing it's from The Jungle Book.

Trivia: The characters of Prince John and King Richard are based on real people. Their mother, Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, really did prefer Richard over John and all her other children (although John didn't really lapse into fits of whining and sucking his thumb.) John eventually became king after Richard's death.

Trivia: The Sheriff of Nottingham was originally written to be a goat. It was later changed to a wolf as wolves seem more villainous.

Trivia: Maid Marian is the only female character in this film to wear shoes. All the others are barefoot.

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.

Continuity mistake: During the archery constest, in one scene Prince John has a ring on his right paw with no jewel, then all of a sudden the jewel appears. a few scenes later he has three rings on that paw, and later he has no rings at all.
