* ActingForTwo: [[UncannyFamilyResemblance King Richard and Prince John]] are both voiced by Peter Ustinov.
* 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]]'.
* OlderThanTheyThink: What was the first animated RobinHood movie with a FunnyAnimal cast? Why ''The Adventures of Robin Hoodnik,'' of course! True, it's a {{Parody}}, yet it was released by Creator/HannaBarbera in 1972, one year ahead of the Creator/{{Disney}} version.
* 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 in favor of easy stereotypes.
** In one version of the ending, the Sheriff was in attendance at Robin Hood and Maid Marian's wedding, indicating that he may have [[HeelFaceTurn reformed]] or been pardoned.
** The special edition DVD shows off a reconstruction of an unused ending for the movie, in which [[spoiler:Robin briefly becomes a DudeInDistress following an injury sustained from his fall during the climax: he would be left with Maid Marian at the church while Little John went off to find help. Prince John comes in while Robin is still knocked out, and is prepared to stab Marian to get to Robin, while she is prepared to stand in front of him to defend him. Of course, both are saved by the timely arrival of good King Richard]].
** Another alternate storyline involved Prince John setting another trap for Robin by sending fake love letters to him and Maid Marian so they will meet in Sherwood Forest where his guards will capture them.
** 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.
* The Disney version of ''Robin Hood'' was the first of the "untouchables" [[note]]''Snow White'' to ''Bambi'' excluding ''Dumbo'', the [[OldShame package films]] except ''The Three Caballeros'' and ''Fun and Fancy Free'' (the latter WAS removed from video stores until the late 90's), and ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' to ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound'' excluding ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' and ''The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh''; ''Fox and Hound'' was the last feature before the 1984 management shift, and the next three features, ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'', ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'', and ''Disney/OliverAndCompany'', joined the "Untouchables." [[/note]] to be released on home video as the premiere title in The Classics: Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo aka the WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics (nicknamed the "Black Diamonds") franchise in 1984, right after the 1984 management shift evicted older management who were resistant to releasing these movies anywhere other than theaters (it's also the first completely post-Walt film to be released for home media). It was mostly rented (unlike the other Classics titles, it was a high-end purchase; the main attraction in Disney's 1984 Christmas video season was the ''DTV'' music program and remaining stock of the WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyCartoonClassics Limited Gold Edition series), but sold enough copies to ensure that ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'', which was reissued in theaters that same season and finished second in the box office overall for Christmas, would be the second title and the first of Walt's "Untouchables" to be a Classics entry, changing Disney's vault strategy. In 1991, ''Robin Hood'' left the Disney Vault on a later Classics reissue and became a general release title, and as of 2015, ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid,'' ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', ''Disney/TheLionKing'', and ''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}'' replaced the package films, ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone'', ''Disney/TheAristocats'', this movie, ''Disney/TheRescuers'', ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound'', ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'', ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'', and ''Disney/OliverAndCompany'' as the "Untouchables" that are only released for home media on a limited basis.
