Trivia: Robin Hood
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: In the Disney film, there's Peter Ustinov as Prince John (and King Richard), Terry-Thomas as Sir Hiss. Little John shares the voice of Phil Harris with Baloo and Thomas O'Malley. George Lindsay as Trigger was probably better known as Goober, and Pat Buttram as the Sheriff as Mr. Haney.
  • What Could Have Been: At one point, the animators considering playing with the Animal Stereotypes and make the Sheriff a goat, but indicative of Disney's Dork Age in the Dark Age Of Animation, 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 reformed or been pardoned.
    • The special edition DVD shows off a reconstruction of an unused ending for the movie, in which Robin briefly becomes a Dude In Distress 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.
