For Families provided by Common Sense Media

OK for kids 5+

A cuddly, classic take on the folktale.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this video is mostly tame but contains examples of bad behavior, such as greediness, gullibility and, in Robin's case, stealing. But it's also a heartwarming tale about having compassion for those who are less fortunate.

  • Families can talk about why it was OK for Robin to steal (while reminding them that it wouldn't be OK for them to steal).

The good stuff
  • message true0

    Messages: Although Robin and Little John are technically outlaws, they are clearly well meaning; they engage in theft, duplicity and pranks, but all in good humor. Prince John is the pinnacle of poor character: vain, greedy, gullible, and temperamental with a habit for thumb sucking.

What to watch for

    Violence and scariness: Mostly slapstick fare with medieval weaponry; Prince John has a sadistic tendency to strike his courtier Hiss.
