This was one of my favorite Disney animated features when I was a kid. It's still fun now. One of the things I can appreciate as an adult is how it creates funny yet deep characters. The villagers of Nottingham are very sympathetic. Disney fortunately resisted the temptation to "over cartoonize" most of the characters in the movie (with some unfortunate exceptions, such as the Lady chicken) and we can appreciate the characters for who they are. Some are stuck in truly heart wrenching scenarios and I like how Disney portrayed them with dignity. It's a great mix of Medieval style and Disney animation. Also, the music is catchy. Like the Sheriff of Nottingham, you'll probably find yourself singing "The Phony King of England." It's too bad the DVD isn't still available on Amazon.com.
