* NoStuntDouble: The only stunt Creator/ErrolFlynn didn't do himself was scaling the castle wall.



* StillbornFranchise: A sequel, Sir Robin of Locksley was announced but never developed. The US government wanted to restrict the amount of money invested in filmmaking at that point in anticipation of joining World War II, so it was delayed. By 1945, when the war was over, the project was scrapped because Creator/OliviaDeHavilland and Creator/ClaudeRains were no longer employed at Warner Bros.

* DeletedScene: We only see the last part of what was originally a longer sequence of Robin recruiting Friar Tuck. Originally Robin forces Tuck to carry him across the river, then Tuck overcomes Robin and forces him to carry him back, and finally the part seen in the film where Robin regains the advantage. This results in both of them having inexplicably wet legs before they enter the river.

Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodHomely: In the episode, "A Husband For Marian", Marian's servant is described as "the homeliest woman in Britain". While certainly no Marian, the woman is rather nice looking in a plain sort of way.
* TheMerch: This was one of the first British shows to have a licencing agreement to produce tie-in toys. With its appeal to children, the Airfix model company was allowed to produce two sets of character figures, representing [[http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=35 Robin Hood's forces]], and a set of the [[http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=413 Sheriff of Nottingham's men]]. While the tie-in Sheriff's Castle is no longer available as a kit[[note]]Examples sell for silly money on Ebay[[/note]], the model figures are still available today to collectors and wargamers, and are thought of as having lasted well for 1950's designs.

* TheOtherDarrin:
** Marian was played by two different actresses over the show's run.
** Also Little John: Archie Duncan was replaced for several episodes in the first series after suffering injuries [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome saving some of the child actors from falling scenery]].
** Prince John was played by a total three different actors.
** The Sheriff's lieutenant, Howard, was ''very'' prone to this: he was seldom played by the same actor two weeks running.
** Ronald Howard played Will Scarlet when the character was an occasional guest; when he was promoted to regular, Paul Eddington took over the role in a striking case of YouLookFamiliar - Eddington had played dozens of minor parts in earlier seasons, including several appearances as Howard.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/JamesCagney was originally cast as Robin Hood, but for some reason, he dropped out. The film was shelved until Jack L. Warner saw Creator/ErrolFlynn in ''Film/CaptainBlood'' and the rest is history.
