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 then transferred to the Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection on July 4, 2000, two weeks ahead of its original date (July 18). The DVD was discontinued in 2006.

Synopsis

Swashbuckling adventure and unforgettable characters make the story of Robin Hood an all-time favorite! The animal kingdom serves up a feast of bowmanship, swordplay, and daring deeds in Disney’s classic version of this timeless medieval tale.

England is at war and ruled by a phony king! Greedy Prince John and his slithering sidekick, Sir Hiss, are taxing Nottingham’s residents to the limit. But roguish Robin Hood, along with his trusted companion Little John and his devoted band of merry men, hatch one exciting adventure after another to outfox the prince. Robin won't rest until he wins the hand of fair Lady Marian and restores King Richard to the throne! Superb storytelling, wonderful animation, and sensational songs make "Robin Hood" a magical movie for kids of all ages!
