Walt Disney's Story of Robin Hood

Medieval History

Robin Hood is an archetypal figure in English folklore, whose story originates from medieval times but who remains significant in popular culture where he is painted as a man known for robbing the rich to give to the poor and fighting against injustice and tyranny. His band consists of a "seven score" group of fellow outlawed yeomen – called his "Merry Men". He has been the subject of numerous films, television series, books, comics, and plays. In the earliest sources Robin Hood is a commoner, but he would often later be portrayed as the dispossessed Earl of Huntingdon.

The classic adventure of the man who robbed from the rich and gave to the poor. Listen for Alan Reed, best known as the voice of Fred Flintstone, who plays multiple characters on this Bozo Approved Record-Reader.

Listening Tip
Launch the audio and open the storybook. As you listen, advance the pages whenever you hear the narrator strum his lute.
