The dangerous times of medieval England provided plenty of adventure for Young Robin Hood and his band of faithful friends. Based on the classic popular tales, this animated series took a new twist, focusing on the escapades of a teenaged Robin Hood. The stories, inspired by adventure, honour and a legend, revealed the origins of Robin’s vow to avenge himself and his father, and told how Robin met his lifelong companions: Little John, Alan a Dale, Will Scarlet, Brother Tuck and the lovely Maid Marion. The six resourceful teenagers set out to best the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and the hateful Prince John through clever ruses.
