The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 1 Episode 22: Richard the Lion-Heart

Robin has not been around for a number of days , he has been with a visiting knight named Peregrinus. There are traitors that pledge their support to King Richard the Lionheart but have now chosen to side with Prince John. Peregrinus has come from the holy land to stop Prince John’s grab for power. He asks the Outlaws to fight for him.

Personal Synopsis

An outside of the box episode, bringing in Richard the Lionheart into the episodes lets us realise that Robin Hood’s existence is due to the Holy Wars. This story is filled with nationalistic pride as one could expect and rousing reason to fight. A decent episode but not significant to any continuity.
