The Zany Adventures of Robin Hood (1984) -- "The Zany Adventures of Robin Hood" is a love-it or hate-it proposition. The humor is relentlessly quirky. Think of "Last Action Hero" or "Demolition Man". Not for everybody, but perfect for some. I think it's a laugh riot. "Zany Robin Hood" was made for TV. It's sort of a mini-movie. As far as I know, it exists only on the VHS tapes of those lucky enough to have recorded it. I watch it every couple of years and laugh every time I see it.
"Zany Robin Hood" is very hard to describe. It's a combination of broad slapstick and subtle irony. Most of the actors are first-rate. Robin Hood rallies the peasants by promising that King Richard will establish what is, essentially, a 20th-century socialist democracy.
