Rocket Robin Hood

Rocket Robin Hood was a Canadian animated television series produced by Krantz Films Inc. that took Robin Hood and placed him into space. It ran for three seasons (52 episodes in total) between 1967 and 1969.

In the cartoon, Rocket Robin Hood lives in “the astonishing year 3000” on New Sherwood Forest Asteroid. where, alongside his merry men, he is determined to foil the schemes of Prince John and the Sheriff of N.O.T.T. (National Outer-space Terrestrial Territories), and other villains such as Dr. Medulla, Manta, Nocturne, and the Warlord of Saturn.

Rocket Robin Hood and his people fly in spaceships and use weapons such as “electro-quarterstaffs.”

Each of the episodes are divided into three parts, with cliffhangers between the first and the second part, as well as the second and the third part of each 22 minute episodes.

All episodes also feature short vignettes of the various characters.

A male chorus sang the opening and the closing themes for each of the three episodes of the cartoons, in the style of the old English ballads.
