* The ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "[[{{Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS4E20Qpid}} Qpid]]" (1991) is pretty much a WholePlotReference, down to a fight between Robin/Picard and Guy of Gisborne on a staircase--which makes Vash's absolute refusal to play Marian a whole lot funnier. (Oddly, though, someone somewhere seems to have gotten Guy of Gisbourne and the Sheriff confused, because Q is clearly playing Creator/BasilRathbon-Guy but calls himself the Sheriff, and Guy more resembles the dim-witted, rotund Melville-Cooper-Sheriff.)

!!The 1938 film

* In the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes cartoon ''WesternAnimation/RabbitHood'' (1949), when WesternAnimation/BugsBunny assaults Little John, who has been announcing Robin's arrival throughout the cartoon, with a vehement "Well, where is he?" his question is answered with an actual clip from ''The Adventures of Robin Hood'' (Creator/ErrolFlynn received a personal copy of this short as compensation for the use of his image).
* The Howard Hughes film ''His Kind of Woman'' (1951) has a FilmWithinAFilm that's a copy of Robin's duel with Guy, with Vincent Price of all people standing in for Flynn.
* The WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes short ''WesternAnimation/RobinHoodDaffy'' (1958) mocks both Robin's swinging on a vine ("Yoicks, and away!") and his overly jolly laughter after being trounced and dunked by an opponent.
* In the 1982 film ''My Favorite Year'', Creator/ErrolFlynn [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed avatar]] Alan Swann (Peter O'Toole) stumbles drunkenly into a projection-room where one of his old films is playing: the actors dueling therein are costumed exactly like Robin and Sir Guy in ''The Adventures of Robin Hood''.
* In the ''[[Series/{{Alf}} ALFTales]]'' cartoon version of the RobinHood story (1988), the Merry Men spring off obvious trampolines during the attack on the treasure caravan (as they do in this film), and Gordon/Robin, painting a self-portrait, paints out what is obviously Errol Flynn's face and substitutes his own.
