      Anyone who knows me knows what a huge fan of the Robin Hood legend I am. Those same people know what a huge Disney fan I am also. I should be in hog heaven then, when, along comes the marriage of both into one feature animated film.

      All I can say is, nice try. I think by 1973,when this film was released, that the magical effects of


      Walt Disney were fading away. Had the story been in his capable hands, things might have been different. But Disney had been gone for seven years, and I jut felt the House of Mouse was simply trying to become a cartoon factory, falling on old, cliched animal characters and, worse, character voices. Case in point: Is that Baloo with Robin?

      Bad news out of the way, now ...


      • for the good news. Disney’s Robin Hood is still an enjoyable piece of work � for young kids. They will relate well with the young kids in the film. The characterizations are charming, if well-worn. To see joy on a child’s face as they watch this film is worth a sit through.

        The songs aren’t too bad either, with ballad-like folk singing keeping your toes tapping pleasantly.

        And vocalization by Peter Ustinov and Terry-Thomas are the real gems of this tale. Who can resist Prince John wishing for his mommy? All in all, add this movie to your Disney collection, and take it out once every couple of years. Just be sure to make it a double feature, and play it first, right before a classic Disney legend of yesteryear. It’ll be a good evening.
