Rocket Robin Hood


I've finally created a category for my trips back in time to the late 70s and early 80s children's TV.  Rocket Robin Hood was an animated show I used to watch daily on Global television in the 1980s.  The series was actually created in the late 60s by a Canadian company.  We should be very proud.

My favourite part of this cartoon was when Friar Tuck would take a single bite out of plate of food and toss the rest over his shoulder.  If he was so hungry, why did he stop at one bite and waste the rest?

The opening theme was great.  Here are the lyrics and some video so you can join me in my television time machine.

Come gather around me. Space travelers surround me. Hark now to the ballad of Rocket Robin Hood.
I may well confound you, astound you, spellbound you, with heroes and villains, the bad and the good.
Watch now as our rockets race here from afar. For now, with our Robin, we live on a star.
Three. Two. One. Blast off!
Band of brothers, marching together. Heads held high in all kinds of weather.
With fiery blasts, our roaring rockets rise, beyond the Earth, beyond the skies!
At the sight of Robin, take your stand, with the gallant leader of our band.
Send a joyous shout throughout the land! For Rocket Robin Hood!
