Trivia: When Robin and the Merry Men meet Rabbi Tuckman, Tuckman comments that Robin and Maid Marion belong together and that the union of their families, Locksley and Baghel, "can't miss". This is a pun on lox and bagels, a food combination popularized by Jewish immigrants.

Trivia: "Robin Hood: Men In Tights" references at least three other Mel Brooks movies. The hangman and the comment about a black sheriff at the end of the movie are both from "Blazing Saddles", the music to the song "Men In Tights" is the same music from "Jews In Space" in "History Of The World Part 1", and Prince John's moving mole and comment "I have a mole?" refer to Igor's hump in "Young Frankenstein".
