* AccidentallyAccurate: Prince John has no mane, most likely due to him originally being a tiger and animators not bothering with a new design. However, a lion who lacks testosterone does lose its mane and strength, a fitting imagery for the weak Prince John

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: At one point, the animators considering playing with the AnimalStereotypes and make the Sheriff a goat, but indicative of Disney's DorkAge in UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfAnimation, the director rejected it because a wolf was more imposing.

** If anything, the film would have been a take on the tale of Literature/ReynardTheFox, but instead went to the Myth/RobinHood mythos during production, which would be an interesting case of a DolledUpInstallment, as the Reynard elements have been retained.

!!The [[Disney/RobinHood Disney film]]



* ActorAllusion: Sam Troughton plays Much in the BBC series, following in the footsteps of his grandfather Creator/PatrickTroughton , who was the first ever Robin Hood on TV.
** In the episode ''Lardner's Ring'', Guy tells Marian that: "you're coming home with me." This is what Thornton says to Margaret Hale at the conclusion of ''Literature/NorthAndSouth''. Both characters were played by Richard Armitage.
*** In addition, both Richard Armitage and Gisborne have the same middle name: '[[EmbarrassingMiddleName Crispin]]'.



* DawsonCasting: Two inversions: In S1 and S2 twenty-one year old Marian was played by then-nineteen year old Lucy Griffiths, and eighteen year old Will Scarlett was played by twenty-two year old Harry Lloyd.
** Played straight in S3, in which twenty-eight year old Clive Standen plays twenty year old Archer, and ''thirty'' year old Joanne Froggatt plays Kate, whose age is never specified, but who is clearly meant to be a young teenager judging by the way she behaves and is treated by other characters.
* DeletedScene: According to the DVD commentary, the Season Two finale included a scene in which Djaq gives Allan the pigeon carrier that he is seen carrying in the final shot of the episode. This scene would have presumably given closure to the Will/Djaq/Allan LoveTriangle, but as it stands, the audience doesn't even get to see these three characters say goodbye to each other.



* TroubledProduction: Nobody is quite sure of what happened behind the scenes on series 3, but it seems to certainly fall under this.

* WrittenInInfirmity: Keith Allen lost a tooth during the filming of the final episode of the first series, which was written into the script. Accordingly the Sheriff now has a series of different false teeth, some leather or jewelled, which he plucks (there's more than one of them) from the skulls he has in his chamber.
* YouLookFamiliar: Several guest actors appeared multiple times for small parts due to the show being shot in Hungary; the actor playing Henry of Lewes also played a Locksley villager in ''Too Hot to Handle'' and turned up as a castle guard on half a dozen other occasions.
** The actress playing Forrest's wife in the second episode of the series had a twin sister who played Beatrice in the second season.
