The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 1 Episode 34: Tables Turned

Big mouthed soldiers are escorting a collection of jewels through the forest, which is bound to be ambushed by the Outlaws. The jewels the outlaws were expecting turned out to be jewels of a more living kind. These treasures make a mess of the Outlaws and their camp but a mystery remains as to where they truly belong. Robins real mess becomes his own when he is captured likely to be sentenced to death. It will take at least a small effort to get Robin out of danger and small ideas.

Personal Synopsis

The kids are treasures indeed 😉 “Tables Turned” finds the outlaws stuck with a problem they didn’t anticipate in what should have been a typical road ambush. In a time period where children should be seen and not heard, this show gives the children some power and even a subtle insert into the writing by Anne Rodney that stated the undervalued fight for gender equality.
