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.
Continuity mistake: During the archery contest Prince John starts out wearing sandals, then wears no shoes, then wears sandals again when he dives out of the stand.
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: 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.
Marian: Oh, Robin, you're so brave and impetuous.
Hiss: A perfect fit, Sire! Looks most becoming! You look regal, dignified, sincere, masterful, noble.
Prince John: Don't overdo it, Hiss.
Marian: Oh, Clucky, surely he must know how much I really love him.
Clucky: But of course, my dear. Believe me, someday soon, your Uncle King Richard will have an outlaw for an in-law.
Question: Why doesn't Prince John like having his hand shaken?
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.
