* 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.
* HeyItsThatVoice: In the Disney film, there's Peter Ustinov as Prince John (''and'' King Richard), Creator/TerryThomas as Sir Hiss. Little John shares the voice of Phil Harris with [[Disney/TheJungleBook Baloo]] and [[Disney/TheAristocats Thomas O'Malley]]. George Lindsay as Trigger was probably better known as [[Series/TheAndyGriffithShow Goober]], and Pat Buttram as the Sheriff as [[Series/GreenAcres Mr. Haney]].
** On [[Series/GreenAcres that page]] you can see the Sheriff standing directly over [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]] and [[Disney/{{Cinderella}} Lady Tremaine]].
** The Captain of the Guard was [[Disney/PeterPan The Indian Chief]] and [[Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective Fidget]].
** Otto is also [[Disney/AliceInWonderland Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dee]], [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Jasper]] and [[Disney/TheJungleBook Colonel Hathi]].
* 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 {{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 the DarkAgeOfAnimation, 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.
