Description by OLDIES.com:

The legend of Robin Hood is given a grand retelling in this popular and long running series made for television (1955-58). Filmed in Great Britain with the handsome and dashing British actor Richard Greene as Robin, the "outlaws" of Sherwood Forest watch over the people of England and protect them from the cruelty and greed of the ruling aristocrats.

The Traitor: Three lords collect enough gold to pay King Richard's ransom and return him to power. When the ransom disappears, Robin must use all of his cunning to determine which of the three has betrayed their cause.

The Knight Who Came to Dinner: Little John and Friar Tuck happen upon a destitute knight who is being forced to turn over his land to an ally of the Sheriff. When Robin hears of his plight, he concocts a plan that will restore the knight's castle and make a fool of his enemies.

The Wager: What begins as a friendly competition between Friar Tuck and Robin Hood to see who can collect the most gold in a day becomes a competition to see who can uncover the most corruption and thievery.

The Friar's Pilgrimage: Robin Hood and Friar Tuck set off to Canterbury for a peaceful retreat. Along the way they find a village where a corrupt Count has accused the Lady Margaret of being a witch in order to take her land. When Robin is taken prisoner by the Count, Tuck must devise a way to outsmart the villain.

Product Description:

Richard Greene played Robin Hood in this British television series (1955-1960) as an upbeat and expansive fellow, and a superb small repertory troupe played different supporting roles. The interior backgrounds were mounted on wheels to facilitate fast shooting, and the studio was located near historic Runnymeade Meadow, the ideal locale for the outdoor scenes. Loosely based on the earlier Douglas Fairbanks and Errol Flynn classic films about a forest bandit with a gang that "steals from the rich and gives to the poor" (that were in turn based on poems and stories dating back 600 years), this children's show remains fondly remembered by those lucky enough to grow up with it.
