Now, as an adult, I adore it no less. So I had to purchase it for my four grandchildren who are moving to Atlanta from Dallas soon. The same thing can be seen today, with the young and young at heart enjoying Robin Hood despite its shortcomings, as more seasoned newcomers judge it a lesser entry in Disney's classics canon. It doesn't compare to the grandiosity of Disney's run of popular films in the '90s, and it doesn't quite measure up to the stalwart classics of the '50s and '60s. The third tier supporting cast seems hurriedly conceived -- chicken Lady Kluck and crocodile Captain Crocodile, for starters -- but the central cast of characters fare well in the suddenly literal forests of Sherwood.

It still has a home in mine. This version is clever and funny, and the music of country music legend Roger Miller makes this movie one for everyone to watch. But the new King is cruel. There are a couple of deleted storyboards and some sing along songs, though it might have been nice to have interviews with teh animators. The film has nonetheless become a. The older movie cartoons never age in terms of delight. Prince John, enraged that he has once again been outwitted by Robin Hood, finds Little John leaving the church, and suspects the outlaw to be there as well.
