The synopsis of the show generally picks up where the adventures of Robin Hood left off except well of into the future. The year is 3000 and, well, the characters are the same. I'm sure everyone knows the story of Robin Hood and how he robs from the evil rich and give back to the poor. Well, this futuristic version shows this Robin Hood, who is I believe the great-great-great-great- grandson of Robin Hood of England, and his merry men who are also decendents of their ancestors who go and fight the forces of evil- usually the decendents of Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham (except being known as the Sheriff of NOTT- the National Outerspace Terristrial Territories. You readers might now get the picture). Anyway now being armed with rocket ships, lasers, electro- quarterstaffs, radar screens, and living on an asteroid powered by rockets to keep out of distance of NOTT castle (if I remember that correctly). The storylines are actually well written with cliffhangers happening before commercial breaks and before returning to the episodes the cartoon always shows the profiles of some of the characters on the cartoon. To the younger crowds, they may go thinking BORING! However for many of us grownups here in Canada that seems it wouldn't be the same if the producers edited out the character profiles but I think that was done to fill airtime.
However the animation was below average at times. However I think audiences overlooked that with great script writing and formulaic plots of the cartoon. I think that's what contributed to the cartoon's success here in Canada and therefore giving it cult-classic status.
The cartoon was transmitted in syndication from the mid 1970's to the early 1990's on CITV-TV in Edmonton, Alberta and was seen usually on weekday mornings at 8:00 am and Saturdays at 12:00pm and 12:30pm before Spider-Man aired at 1:00 pm on Saturdays. Therefore both the cartoon series were aired within the same time block as with several other TV stations across Canada. It then briefly aired on Teletoon between 2003-2005 during the summer months then disappeared.moreless
