A match for any of Disney's more widely proclaimed animated adventures, this take on the legend sees vulpine hero Robin Hood out to outfox thumb-sucking tyrant Prince John (voiced by Peter Ustinov) while winning the heart of Maid Marian and, naturally, ensuring the poor don't go away empty handed. With Phil Harris (The Jungle Book's Baloo) as Little John, musician Roger Miller providing narration as cockerel-cool minstrel Allan-a-Dale, and perennial British cad Terry-Thomas perfectly casssst as Prince John's hench-snake Sir Hiss, there's more colour to the denizens of this Sherwood Forest than mere Lincoln green.
