Long ago, England was ruled by a wicked, greedy Prince called Prince John. He ordered the Sheriff of Nottingham to take enormous taxes from all the people in Nottingham. Robin hood and Little John were outlaws who had had enough. They would take back from the rich and give to the poor!
Sheriff, I command you to take all the taxes from all the people in the whole of Nottingham!
This is not fair! I will right this wrong!
I want it all!
How much Tax do you need Sheriff?
Amongst the trees, Little John and Robin Hood kept a look out for Prince John or the Sheriff, riding through Sherwood Forest on their way to collect taxes. The decided they needed to intercept the Prince to solve this problem, once and for all.
Look! Little John, we need to pay a visit to that pesky Prince.
In the carriage, Prince John was talking about how much he loved gold with Sir Robert. He told him how he didn't care about the poor people of Nottingham, all he wanted was to make himself rich!
Gold...beautiful gold! How l love gold!
What the Prince did not know, however, was that Robin Hood had a plan! They were waiting, disguised as fortune tellers for the Prince. As Robin told his Prince his fortune, he slipped off the royal rings, just as Little John made off with the chests of gold!
Care to have your fortune told, Your Majesty?
Fortune tellers, what fun! Stop the carriage!
What a fool he is to be tricked again! Success!
Robin and Little John quickly dashed back to their hide out in the forest, happy to have tricked the stupid Prince once more. Tomorrow they would return the gold to its rightful owners!
Meanwhile, back at Nottingham Castle, the Sheriff had heard what had happened to the Prince. Again they had been fooled by Robin, and again they had failed to catch him!
That dastardly pest! I will catch that Robin Hood if it's the last thing I do!
