Robin Hood, an animated version of the English legend, was released by the Disney Studios in 1973. The main character in this well-known adaptation is a fox, as is his lover Maid Marian; his foe, Prince John, is a lion, and has a serpent sidekick named Sir Hiss.

Robin Hood: Fear not, my friends. This will be my greatest performance.

Sir Hiss (as a defeated Prince John chases him): He's gone sstark raving MAD! (echoes)

Sir Hiss: And you...who might you be, sssir?
Little John: I am Sir Reginald, Duke of Chutney....and don't stick your tongue out at me, kid! (addressing Prince John) And now, your mightiness, allow me to lay some protocol on you. (stoops to kiss Prince John's hand)
Prince John: No no no, but I lose more jewels that way, please sit down.
Little John: (sitting down on Sir Hiss) Thanks, PJ, you can't get a better seat than this, the royal box....hey...what...who? (Pulling out Hiss) Oh, excuse me, Buster.
Sir Hiss: BUSTER!? You, ssir, have taken my sseat!

Robin Hood: (dressed as gypsy) Oo-de-lally!
Little John: (dressed as gypsy) Fortunes forecast, lucky charms!
Robin Hood: Catch the dope, with your horoscope!
Prince John: Fortune tellers, how droll. Stop the coach!
Sir Hiss: But SSSSire, they may be bandits.
Prince John: Oh, poppycock! Female bandits? What next...rubbish...(to Robin Hood and Little John) My dear ladies, you have my permission to kiss the royal hands, whichever you like first.
Robin Hood: Oh, how gracious (kisses hand and removes large ring)... and generous.

Lady Cluck: And down with that scurrrrvy Prince John!
Little John: O the world will sing
Of an English king
A thousand years from now,
And not because he passed some laws ahead, that lofty prow.
While bonny-good King Richard leads the great crusade he's on,
We all have to slave away for that good-for-nothing John.
Incredible as he is inept,
Whenever the history books are kept
They'll call him the Phony King of England!
Friar Tuck: A pox on the Phony King of England!
Little John: He sits alone
On a giant throne,
Pretending he's the King.
A little tyke
Who's rather like
A puppet on a string!
He throws an angry tantrum if he cannot have his way
And he calls for Mum,
While he's sucking his thumb
You see, he doesn't wanna play.
Too late to be known as John the First,
He's sure to be known as John the Worst.
A pox on that Phony King of England!

Little John: While he taxes us to pieces and he robs us of our bread
King Richard's crown
Keeps slipping down
Around that pointed head
Ah, but while there is a merry man in Robin's wily pack
We'll find a way
To make him pay
And steal our money back.
A minute before he knows we're there,
Old Rob'll snatch his underwear...


Sir Hiss: SSSire...taxes are pouring in, the jails are full, and OH, good news ssire... Friar Tuck is in jail!
Prince John: (throwing money everywhere) FRIAR TUCK?! It's ROBIN HOOD I want, you idiot! Oh, I would give all of my gold if I could just get my hands on.... (turning to Hiss) Did you say Friar Tuck?
Sir Hiss: Did I...oh yes, I did.
Prince John: Ah. Hiss - I have it. I'll use that fat friar as bait to trap Robin Hood!
