Western Animation / Robin Hood: Mischief in Sherwood

Go To

Robin Hood: Mischief in Sherwood is an All-CGI Cartoon about the adventures of Robin Hood and his friends.

This show provides examples of:

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: For some reason John Lackland, historically a redhead, is portrayed as blond.
  • Age Lift: Prince John is about Robin's age, while he's usually older in most interpretations even with an adult Robin. Furthermore the traditional identity for the Robin Hood of the time of the Plantagenet brothers is a fictitious Robert Fitzooth whose date of birth is given as 1160 whereas John Lackland was born in 1166, so instead of John being younger than Robin they are both the same age.
  • Bag of Kidnapping: In "Manhunt" bounty hunter Harry the Hyena kidnaps Scarlett with this method mistaking her for Robin.
  • Beauty Mark: John has one under his left eye.
  • Big Eater: Tuck, evident in "The Pantry" and "The Ransom".

  • The Chosen One: The Dragon of Sherwood calls Marian this as she's the one with the spell-book.
  • Depending on the Writer: The Sheriff alternates between being a Corrupt Cop/Evil Debt Collector and a Reasonable Authority Figure who is Just Following Orders.
  • Fountain of Youth: In "Child's Play" one of Marian's spells backfires and de-ages her, though only mentally.
  • Gender Flip: This Scarlett is a girl.
  • Greed: Prince John's vice.
  • Heroes Prefer Redheads: Robin and Marian for each other.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Robin is able to not only beat Prince John in a match by hitting the bulls-eye, he hits John's arrow with his, splitting it down in the middle.
  • Inept Mage: Marian is one. The first thing she does is turning a dragon into a small, cute critter. In 'The Pantry' she casts a sleeping spell on the Sheriff who begins to sleep walk. She's still learning, though.
  • Magic Skirt:
    • Averted in "The Conquest of Sherwood" when Marian and Scarlett get caught in snares and are strung up by their ankles. They have to hold their dresses up.
    • Averted again in "The Letter". Scarlett's bloomers can be seen after she and Marian jump into a wagon.
  • Mirror Morality Machine: In "Mirror Marian" after she fires a spell at a mirror and it bounces back at her, Marian is trapped in the mirror and replaced with her evil opposite, who hates Robin and his friends and loves Prince John.
  • Nice to the Waiter: Technically, Scarlett is Marian's servant, but Marian doesn't treat her like one.
  • Panty Shot: Marian and Scarlett have their knee-length pantaloons show briefly in the Magic Skirt instance.
  • Precocious Crush: In "Child's Play" after Marian has mentally regressed to half her age, she's much more open about her feelings for Robin.
  • Redhead In Green: Robin Hood is dressed in green from head to toe.
  • Reused Character Design:
    • The Charlatan looks almost identical to the leader of the bandits, to the point that viewers might mistake them for the same person.
    • Gwendolyn from "Damsel in Distress" is a clone of Eleanor from "Best of Enemies".
  • Terrible Trio: The bandits which appear from time to time, sometimes working alone (The Ransom) and other times for Prince John.
  • Treehouse of Fun: Robin, Tuck and Little John live in one.
  • Trick Arrow: Robin's arrows, which can bind and blind people.
  • You Can Keep Her: In 'The Ransom' Prince John has no intention in paying the bandits to get Marian back
