- A little history of Disney’s Xerox era.
- Disney’s Robin Hood origins: Reynard the Fox.
- Introduction uses reused animation, “Whistle Stop” = hamster dance, intro to Robin Hood and Little John, justification.
- Sir Hiss is a well designed character; Prince John is a weak, pathetic, hilarious villain; “Beautiful, lovely TEXAS!”
- Morgan’s “solid gold hub caps”, the honorable sheriff of Nottingham, wolves are always the villains.
- Clucky is the sassy black woman; Maid Marian; the little critter children; blundering Friar Tuck.
- The archery tournament: Sir Reginald Duke of Chutney, are you sick of the quotes yet?.
- The scene & song that stops the momentum: “Love.”
- “The Phony King of England”: jamming to Bluegrass all night; reused animation; becomes a top-40 hit overnight.
- Songs: what is the best song?
- Different versions of the DVD; alternate endings; the marriage!
- We rate it!
- Bloopers. Lots of out-of-context bloopers.
