Anyone else a fan of this show? Anyone heard of it? It's written by Tony Robinson, aka Baldrick from Blackadder. And he plays the Sheriff of Nottingham.

well, since no one has heard of it…


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BorejUOJ5-o
I recently was watching this outtake of it, and i think it's really funny and also really cute! Its' from the show, which is a parody of the Robin Hood stories, where Maid Marian is the leader of the gang and Robin is a vain, cowardly, meterosexual yuppie. Tony Robinson is the writer, and the Sheriff. (aka, Baldrick from Blackadder). He's got two henchmen, Gary and Graeme. The other merry men are Rabies, strong tall idiot, Little Ron, violent midget, and Barrington, rastafarian. (played by Danny John Jules, aka Cat from Red Dwarf).
It's a parody, a musical (they randomly burst into song) a satire, has maaany historical anacrhonisms…
but yeah, i just love this out take!
He's supposed to be saying “There you are! I've saved you from certain death at the hands of Robin Hood!”
then Gary is supposed to say “Thank you very much sire! Now can you save us from certain death at the hands of King John?”
Here are some other clips

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WERMGYQBXwc “Pancake Day”. This is the start of one of the earlier episodes… if you had no idea about the show, this would be ultra ultra weird. The opening credits came after the song, so it just burst into this song hehe

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WERMGYQBXwc here are the end titles, with a catchy song and animation.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WERMGYQBXwc here is how the first episode started! with The Mud Song.
as you can see, the poverty of the people is very much exaggerated.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5C1ITKawD4 here is the Rabies in Love song. Rabies falls for the strongest woman in the village… h er name is Fergie.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPPDw_LkJ9w here's a very badly done clip of part of an episode… “Badgerburger”. Guy of Gisbourne, the King's Nephew, i s coming to stay, and the merry men have stolen all his clothes. Little Ron is impersonating Guy of Gisbourne and living it up. mmm badgerburger.

I remember this from years back, it had mud farming peasants and was generally unpleasant. great fun to watch though.
Of course you will. All intelligent beings dream. Nobody knows why.

Also, tell random people they are awsome! it helps!

I vaguely remember it. I was about four years old back then, so I don't think I remember anything well that stuck out back then. All I can recall is the fact it was shown on the BBC.

Well, can't say the clips you've posted have piqued my interest in the series, but to each their own, I suppose.

Hope you don't mind me bumping this up, but I didn't see much point in starting a new thread on it. But series 3 is out now! :D
