Episode Summary

EDIT
Misadventures In Robin Hood Woods
AIRED:
After a successful mission on Dragon's Den, Kevin, Kid Icarus, and Duke stop off on the medieval world of Nottingham to power-up the Warp Wagon. The three of them find the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and Prince John robbing the Ye-Olde Weapon Shoppe and fight them. They meet Robin Hood, who helps them out. Kevin, Kid Icarus, and Duke are introduced to the Merry Men, who make fun of Kid Icarus due to his size and wings. Kid Icarus decides to prove he's a better archer than them by entering the Tournament of the Golden Arrow that afternoon. Robin also decides to enter to win the golden arrow for himself. The Sheriff and Prince John plot to capture Robin Hood at the tournament, deciding that whoever wins must be Robin. Maid Marian overhears their plot, but she can't do anything about it. At the tournament, Robin, Kevin, and Duke are in disguise. Prince John dresses up as Maid Marian, since the real one won't co-operate. Kevin tries to win a gift for Lana. Kid Icarus does really good in the tournament. Kid Icarus and the Sheriff go through the final round, but the Sheriff cheats by using Kid Icarus' buzzsaw arrow and wins the tournament. Robin approaches "Maid Marian" for the golden arrow and a kiss. Prince John then reveals himself, orders Robin placed under arrest, and exposes his identity. Kevin intervenes, but the Sheriff says that, unless everyone surrenders to him, Maid Marian will be his prisoner forever. Robin agrees to surrender if Marian is released. Marian, hearing this, falls out of the tower. Kid Icarus takes the golden arrow and uses it to create a protective bubble around Marian, and she floats down into Robin's arms. Kid Icarus becomes a hero in Nottingham and is then welcomed as a member of the Merry Men.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • In this episode, as in many throughout the third season (possibly due to the change in hands of animation), Captain N's power pad is drawn rather poorly, looking nothing like an actual Nintendo power pad. For example, in close-ups in this episode, the two circular B and A buttons are drawn atop each other, rather than side-by-side like they should be.

      • And for another, Prince John is the head of Nottingham's villains in this episode. In the Robin Hood game, as in the movie it was based on, the Sheriff is the head honcho of the villains and Prince John is not to be found.

      • If this game was based on Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, not much work went into coordinating the game and the episode based on it. For instance, there are no magical arrows with special properties in the game, like the one that turns into a bubble to save Maid Marian from her fall.
