Tom and Jerry Wiki

"Robin Ho Ho" is the ninth episode of The Tom and Jerry Show (1975).



As Robin Ho Ho teaches his merry men to laugh, Little John arrives to report "interlopers": Tom and Jerry, who want to join and become merry men (Merry cat and merry mouse??). First, Robin sees how they do laughing; Tom and Jerry fall all over themselves guffawing and are initiated into The Merry Men Training Academy. They succeed in accomplishing two further tests: shooting bull's-eyes with a longbow and capturing a fire-breathing dragon, but they find that the third and last task, going to The Sheriff Of Nottingham's castle and retrieving a red plume from The Sheriff's helmet, proves to be the most challenging of them all, as they are hindered every step of the way by a loudmouth crow and The Sheriff's two wolfhounds! Tom & Jerry nevertheless tackle the odds and succeed in their mission. The skeptical Robin Ho Ho asks T&J to prove that the plume is really from The Sheriff Of Nottingham, and he is immediately set upon by The Sheriff's wolfhounds!

Trivia & Notes

  • Inspired by the classic T&J short Robin Hoodwinked (by MGM, 1958).
  • Frank Welker voices The Sheriff Of Nottingham and his crow. His is undoubtedly one of the busiest larynxes in the business, having performed numerous voiceovers for Hanna-Barbera and beyond, starting with Freddy Jones on Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! (CBS, 1969-72/1974-76).
  • Tom & Jerry tangle with another crow in Episode #80-33, "Double Trouble Crow."
  • The scene in which the crow guards The Sheriff while he's sleeping recalls a similar plotline in 1958's Royal Cat Nap.
  • The dogs makes a resemblance to Spike, including in a scene with Tom's tail getting close into a sleeping dog's mouth.
