Disney Robin Hood Spotlight

by Allen W. Wright

Revisiting that Disney Magic

Disney's 1973 classic cartoon film Robin Hood -- that's the one with the cartoon fox (voiced by Brian Bedford) -- premiered on November 8, 1973. As I write this, the movie is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and the Walt Disney Studio is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

Oo-de-lally, golly what a day -- and what a year.

So, I thought it only fitting to revisit the film that has defined Robin Hood for generations of children with a special spotlight.

And to add to the fun, there's also a new spotlight on Disney's earlier Robin Hood movie, 1952's The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men. Plus you'll find a link to another spotlight I wrote many years ago on the Disney TV movie Princess of Thieves, about Robin's daughter.

Robin Hood Tweet-Alongs

This page was originally used in 2020 to promote some tweet-along events on Twitter (now called X). 

Emily Cook had introduced very popular Twitter rewatch parties for Doctor Who to bring cheer in those troubled times, and I decided to launch a couple tweet-alongs for Robin Hood -- and also help promote another.

If you search Twitter/X, you can probably find the posts.

The page's title Oo-De-Lally comes from a song in Robin Hood. And it was the hashtag used for the tweet-along.
