Epinions.com 9 of 10
The comic timing here is off the scale. Whether it's something simple like a banjo string breaking, or Prince John's eternal torment of his assistant Sir Hiss, there's always something. My favorite has got to be Lady Kluck. She and the lovely (quite so for a cartoon character) Maid Marian share a great ladies' rapport, but Lady Kluck has a way with the kids as well; her imitation of Prince John is great! And her crazy bashing-of-rhino-heads-into-the-ground move that she uses in battle is so ridiculously effective, that itself warrants a good chuckle or two. Prince John's sleeping scene toward the end is equally hysterical...There really is not a single character in this film that I don't like.

Decent Films Guide 8 of 10
As post-Sleeping Beauty Disney animated features go, Robin Hood is a fine entry, better than The Sword in the Stone or The Fox and the Hound but not as good as The Jungle Book or The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. On the down side, it suffers from uninspired animation and a one-dimensional title character (fine Brian Bedford); on the up side, it benefits from strong supporting vocal talent (Phil Harris as a Baloo-like Little John, Peter Ustinov as Prince John, inimitable Andy Devine as Friar Tuck, Pat Buttram as the Sheriff of Nottingham), a catchy country-themed soundtrack courtesy of Roger Miller as Alan-a-Dale, and a fine swashbuckling plot. - Steven D.
