After a four-year moratorium, Robin Hood returned to stores on VHS on July 11, 1991, joining Alice in Wonderland, Dumbo and The Sword in the Stone. It also marked the first time ever when Robin Hood was priced at $24.99. The videos were later re-packaged as part of the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection starting in 1994

On July 13, 1999, Robin Hood's 1999 re-issue on video was one of the last official releases within the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection, along with Alice in Wonderland. It was discontinued on January 31, 2000, and replaced by its Gold Classic Collection counterpart.
