* HeyItsThatVoice:
** In the Disney film, there's Peter Ustinov as Prince John (''and'' King Richard), playing the role in both English ''and'' German, and Creator/TerryThomas as Sir Hiss. Little John shares the voice of Phil Harris with [[Disney/TheJungleBook Baloo]] and [[Disney/TheAristocats Thomas O'Malley]]. George Lindsay as Trigger was probably better known as [[Series/TheAndyGriffithShow Goober]], and Pat Buttram as the Sheriff as [[Series/GreenAcres Mr. Haney]].
** Maid Marian and Lady Cluck were last seen with [[Theatre/TheOddCouple Felix Ungar and Oscar Madison]]. After that, they were [[Disney/TheAristocats English geese]].
** On the page for ''Series/GreenAcres'' you can see the Sheriff standing directly over [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]] and [[Disney/{{Cinderella}} Lady Tremaine]].
** The Captain of the Guard was [[Disney/PeterPan The Indian Chief]] and [[Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective Fidget]].
** Otto is also [[Disney/AliceInWonderland Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dee]], [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Jasper]] and [[Disney/TheJungleBook Colonel Hathi]].
** Friar Tuck was voiced by Andy Devine, known for ''Film/{{Stagecoach}}'' and ''Series/{{Flipper}}''.

** Prince John was originally going to be a tiger, but King Richard "The Lion Hearted" obviously had to be portrayed as a lion, so the tiger idea was dropped. Interestingly, it seems that when they decided to drop this idea, they just removed the stripes from the model sheets of the character, without making further changes. This could explain why he has no mane.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: At one point, the animators considering playing with the AnimalStereotypes and make the Sheriff a goat, but indicative of Disney's DorkAge in the DarkAgeOfAnimation, the director rejected it in favor of easy stereotypes.
