* So I'd like to know what happened to all the other outlaws from the first two episodes, the one's that Little John led, all of a sudden, it's just John, Roy, Allan, and Will. what happened to the rest of the outlaw bunch, did they just say "okay, Robin's here, let's leave?" I'd hate that this was the director's way of doing some major screw up

** Maybe they died in an offscreen battle. At least one of them had a loved one still in Nottingham - maybe all the business with John seeing his wife and son convinced them to reunite with what families they had. The most likely out-of-universe reason is that they were CanonForeigners - after they're gone, the only CanonForeigner left in the gang is Roy and he leaves two episodes later. It's the same as the fact you never see specific villagers again after their DayInTheLimelight. Occasionally it's written that they have to leave but a lot just end up disappearing. The writers seemed to want to focus on the core Robin (& gang) vs Sheriff (& Guy) storyline that Robin Hood is most famous for. Doing that meant losing a lot of the dead weight. Besides, they were never exactly hugely important enough to be missed...

** It was not only possible, it was a not-uncommon occurrence. Quite a few Lords, knights, soldiers and peasants on Crusade simply packed up their bags and went back home; heck, in the First Crusade, that's what happened with most of the ''leaders''.
** There seems to be a bit of confusion; Richard III didn't finish Crusading and go straight back to England- he was captured and imprisoned for two years by the Duke of Austria (who accused Richard of murdering his cousin), so Robin probably went home expecting Richard to show up any day only to learn he's been incarcerated and the corrupt Prince John is happy for him to languish in chains and rule England as a corrupt tyrant instead. Richard III would not be released for another year or so, so Robin had a whole year to raise a band of outlaws and rebel against John. Plus, even after Richard was released and returned (despite John trying to pay his captors to [[RefugeInAudacity hold Richard for even longer]], Richard [[EasilyForgiven forgave John anyway and named him his heir]] before heading off to Europe [[BloodKnight to go fighting again]], so it still makes sense that Robin was fighting the corrupt John while his "true king" was away. Either way, Robin didn't have to do anything wrong to come home from Crusading before Richard did.

* This flew right over my head as a child, but has now become impossible to ignore  what the heck is a monk like Friar Tuck doing taking care of a church?

\n** It's a similar animation cheat as FeatherFingers and ToothyBird. Maybe, in-universe, he has extremely flexible legs?

** It might have been that the initial tightening choked him, but after that the knot loosened enough for him to breathe. Ever notice that tying a good knot with a really smooth material can be tricky because it'll undo itself right away? Kind of like that.

\n* A minor one, but Alan-A-Dale has realistic bird legs. Which is fine, but when he sits down and crosses his legs, the [[BodyHorror ankles bend in the opposite direction to become "knees."]] It's an easy thing to miss, but hard to ignore once you've seen it.

\n** Larger creatures seem to pull the carriages. Prince John's carriage is pulled by some of his elephant soldiers. Little John pulls the cart during the escape from the castle. What's going on with the carriage at the end of the film is left ambiguous, though.

\n* Who pulls the carriages? Prince John rides in a carriage. The very last scene is Robin and Marian riding away in a carriage with a "Just Married" sign. Are horses just not anthropomorphic in this world?

\n*Where the heck were Marian and Klucky between the "Phony King" song and the final scene? They just vanish in the middle of it then appear at the very end of the film. Where were they?

\n** You said it yourself: a kiss ''from'' Maid Marian. Not the right to ''kiss'' Maid Marian ''yourself''. Especially given her high status, it wouldn't be the right to kiss her on the mouth but the right to be kissed by her on the cheek.
