The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 2 Episode 34: The Little People

Traveling across Ireland in rainy conditions, Robin and the crew seeks shelter in a farm whose inhabitants believe that out in the wild live the little people, the leprechauns. After being captured Robin must prove the little peoples existence or Maid Marian will be hanged by her captors. The stories of such little tales deemed foolish are found to be true and just in time.

Personal Synopsis

“What? No cold bacon?” Friar Tuck is often hungry but now much more specific with his expectations. The Little People episode plays on the tales of the wee leprechauns but gives it a more realistic look as the reasons for their existence are not all supernatural. This heartfelt episode was easy to digest even with the classic clichés of Robin’s galant efforts.
