Robin Hood 1 Story

as a fox and Little John as a bear, who rob from the rich to give to the poor. The beginning of the film has the two tricking Prince John (a lion), and Sir Hiss (a snake). John has usurped the true ruler, King Richard, whom Sir Hiss hypnotized into going off on a Crusade. Robin and Little John disguise themselves as fortune tellers, and make off with a number of items from John's royal carriage. Eventually, Prince John and Sir Hiss make it to Nottingham, wherein taxes are collected by the 'honorable' Sheriff of Nottingham (a wolf). After collecting funds from the local blacksmith (a dog), the Sheriff pays a visit to a windowed bunny and her family. Her eldest son Skippy has turned 7, and his present of a farthing is snatched away by the Sheriff for tax-reasons. As the Sheriff leaves, an old blind fox enters, and reveals to the family that he's Robin Hood. Robin then gives a bow and arrow, as well as his hat to Skippy, and the young rabbit's spirits are lifted by the generous gift. Skippy, his two sisters, and turtle friend go out to try the bow and arrow. Skippy's first shot sends the arrow into Prince John's castle. Skippy sneaks in to retrieve it, but finds himself face-to-face with Maid Marian (a fox), and Lady Cluck (a chicken). Marian and her lady-in-waiting then invite the children in, where they discuss Marian's love for Robin Hood, and play a game, wherein Lady Cluck pretends to be Prince John. Meanwhile, in Sherwood Forest, Robin Hood and Little John are relaxing, when they are visited by Friar Tuck (a badger), who explains of an archery tournament held by Prince John, with the winner receiving a kiss from Maid Marian (Robin Hood "Isn't she beautiful?"; Little John "Cool it, lover boy, your heart's runnin' away with your head."). Against Little John's cautions, Robin decides they should attend. Robin disguises himself as a long-legged stork, and Little John disguises himself as a Duke. Robin ends up winning the tournament, but is found out by Prince John, who used the tournament as a way to capture the rogue. Before Robin can be executed, Prince John creates a diversion, and soon, the entire archery grounds become a free-for-all, before Robin, Little John, Maid Marian, and Lady Cluck are able to escape into Sherwood Forest. Later on that evening, in Sherwood Forest, a celebration is held, with a song mocking Prince John, as 'The Phony King of England.' The song is then echoed throughout Nottingham, and soon the Sheriff is singing it as well. Prince John, infuriated by this insubordination, increases the taxes to the point where the inability to pay taxes puts much of the townsfolk in jail. When the Sheriff ends up going to the church and taking funds from the Poor Box, Friar Tuck attacks the Sheriff, and is arrested as well. Prince John is still upset that he still has not captured Robin Hood, and decides to hang Friar Tuck, to lure Robin into rescuing the 'corpulent cleric. Robin Hood and Little John manage to sneak into the castle, and along with rescuing all those in prison, manage to make off with all of Prince John's gold. Little John is able to get everyone out, except for Skippy's youngest sister Sis. Robin Hood manages to get her out in time, but is trapped inside the castle. The Sheriff of Nottingham chases Robin with a flaming torch. During their fight, the torch ends up setting the Nottingham's castle aflame, before Robin plunges into the moat, evading the Sheriff's and Prince John's clutches. (Prince John "Oh, no. it's so miserably unfair"; Sir Hiss "Well, I tried to tell you, but, no, no, you wouldn't listen; your traps just never work and now look what you've done to your mother's castle") In the aftermath, King Richard finally returned from the Crusades, and has Prince John, Sir Hiss and the Sheriff put to work breaking rocks. To the end of the story, Robin Hood and Maid Marian are married, to the happy cheers of the townspeople of Nottingham.

Script 1 Allan-a-Dale: Oh, incidentally, I'm Allan-a-Dale, a minstrel. That's an early-day folk singer. And my job is to tell it like it is. Or was, or whatever. Little John: You know something, Robin? You're taking too many chances. Robin Hood: Chances? You must be joking. That just a bit of a lark, Little John. Little John: Yeah? Take a look at your hat. That's not a candle on a cake. Robin Hood: Hello. This one almost had my name on it, didn't it? They're getting better, you know. You've got to admit it. They are getting better. Little John: The next time that sheriff'll probably have a rope around our necks. Pretty hard to laugh hangin' there, Rob. Robin Hood: Ha! The sheriff and his whole posse couldn't lift you off the ground. En garde! Little John: Hey, watch it, Rob. That's the only hat I've got. Robin Hood: Oh, come along. You worry too much, old boy. Little John: You know something, Robin? I was just wonderin'. Are we good guys or bad guys? You know. I mean, our robbin' the rich to feed the poor. Robin Hood: Rob? That's a naughty word. We never rob. We just sort of borrow a bit from those who can afford it. Little John: Borrow? Boy, are we in debt. Robin Hood: That sounds like another collection day for the poor. Eh, Johnny boy? Little John: Yeah. Sweet charity. Prince John: Taxes! Taxes! Beautiful, lovely taxes! Sir Hiss: Sire, you have an absolute skill for encouraging contributions from the poor. Prince John: To coin a phrase, my dear counselor, rob the poor to feed the rich. Am I right? Tell me, what is the next stop, Sir Hiss? Sir Hiss: Uh, let me see. Oh! Yes. The next stop is Nottingham, sire. Prince John: Oh! The richest plum of them all. Notting... ham. Sir Hiss: A perfect fit, sire. Most becoming. You look regal, dignified, sincere, masterful, noble, chival... Prince John: Uh, don't overdo it, Hiss. There. That, I believe, does it. This crown gives me a feeling of power! Forgive me a cruel chuckle. Power. Sir Hiss: And how well King Richard's crown sits on your noble brow. Prince John: Doesn't it? Uh, King Richard? Look, I've told you never to mention my brother's name! Sir Hiss: A mere slip of the forked tongue, Your Majesty. We're in this plot together, if you don't mind my saying so. And remember, it was your idea I hypnotized him and... Prince John: I know. And sent him off on that crazy crusade. Sir Hiss: Much to the sorrow of the Queen Mother. Prince John: Yes! Mother. Mother always did like Richard best. Sir Hiss: Your Highness, please don't do that. If you don't mind my saying so, you see, you have a very loud thumb. Hypnotism could rid you of your psychosis so easily. Prince John: No! None of that! None of that. Sir Hiss: Well, I was only trying to help. Prince John: I wonder. Silly serpent. Sir Hiss: "Silly serpent"? Prince John: Now look here. One more hiss out of you Hiss, and you are walking to Nottingham. Sir Hiss: Snakes don't walk. They slither. Little John: Now what about that for luck? It's only a circus. A peanut operation. Robin Hood: "Peanuts"? Why, you dunce. That's the royal coach. It's Prince John himself. Little John: The prince? Wait a minute. There's a law against robbin' royalty. I'll catch you later. Robin Hood: What? And miss this chance to perform before royalty? Little John: Ah! Here we go again. Robin Hood: Oo-de-lally! Oo-de-lally! Fortune tellers! Little John: Fortunes forecast! Lucky charms! Robin Hood: Get the dope with your horoscope. Prince John: Fortune tellers! How droll. Uh, stop the coach. Sir Hiss: Sire, sire, they may be bandits. Prince John: Oh, poppycock. Female bandits? What next? Rubbish. Prince John: Um, my dear ladies, you have my permission to kiss the royal hands. Whichever you like... first. Robin Hood: Mmm! Oh! How gracious! And generous. Sir Hiss: Sire! Sire! Did you see what they...? Prince John: Stop! Stop hissing in my ear. Sir Hiss: Ah! Prince John: Hiss! Oh, you've hissed your last hiss. Suspicious snake. Robin Hood: Masterfully done, Your Excellency. Robin Hood: Now close your eyes and concentrate. Close your eyes. Tight shut. No peeking, sire. From the mists of time, come forth, spirits. Yoo-hoo! Little John: OK, little fireflies. Glow, babies, glow. Robin Hood: We're waiting. Ah, oh! Look, sire. Look! Prince John: Oh! Incredible. Floating spirits. Robin Hood: Ah, oh! Naughty, naughty. You mustn't touch, young man. Prince John: Oh, how dare you strike the royal hand. Robin Hood: Shh! Shh! You'll break the spell. Just gaze into the crystal ball. Oo-de-lally! Oo-de-lal... Oh! A face appears. A crown is on his noble brow. Oo-de-lally! Prince John: A crown! How exciting! Robin Hood: His face is handsome, regal, majestic, loveable, a cuddly face. Prince John: Handsome, regal, oh! Majestic. Loveable. Yes, yes. Cuddly. Oh, that's me to a T. It really is. Yes. Robin Hood: Ooh! Prince John: Now what? Robin Hood: I see, your illustrious name. Prince John: I know my name! Get on with it! Robin Hood: Your name will go down, down, down, in history, of course. Prince John: Yes! I knew it! I knew it! Do you hear that, Hiss? Oh, you... He's in the basket. Little John: What have we here? Solid-gold hubcaps. Oo-de-lally. The jackpot.
