Played by: Mark Blankfield

Robin's blind manservant.

  • Blind Mistake: Arguably the entire point of his character.
  • Disability Superpower: He's able to catch the arrow fired at Robin, claiming he could hear it coming a mile away.
  • Handicapped Badass: So much so that if he could actually see, Blinkin would likely have liberated England by himself.

Little John

Played by: Eric Allan Kramer

A big guy who joined Robin in his quest after he was defeated by him.

Will Scarlet O'Hara

Played by: Matthew Porretta

Little John's friend who also joined Robin along with him.

Rabbi Tuckman

Played by: Mel Brooks

A travelling rabbi. He meets Robin during a robbery and offers the Merry Men some of his wine.

  • Creator Cameo: Played by Mel Brooks.
  • Good Shepherd: He shares wine and counsel and blessing; the blessings are mostly an excuse for the wine.
  • Nice Guy: "Married in a hurry? Wonderful! Invite me to the bris!"
  • Shout-Out: "It's good to be the king."


Played by: Tracy Ullman

An old witch who lives in a tower in the castle. She serves as a counsel to Prince John, by way of telling his fortune. She also has the hots for the sheriff of Rottingham.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: To the sheriff. She keeps a cardboard cutout of him in her boudoir and likes to cuddle up to it.
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: She gives Prince John a dish with crocodile eyeballs and newt testicles in it and expects him to eat it. He spits out the first bite while her back is turned.
  • Dirty Old Woman: The kinds of things she'd like to do to the sheriff are not exactly left to the imagination.
  • Fortune Teller
  • Unfortunate Names: Even though "Latrine" sounds a lot better than her original name of "Shithouse", it's still essentially the same thing.


Played by: Megan Cavanagh

Maid Marian's lady-in-waiting.
