    This show is on Teletoon Retro all the time. I love it, even though I think it is possibly the crappiest, low-budgetest cartoon ever. The movements didn't sync up with the audio, they reused the same three backgrounds over and over, and the plot didn't really make sense. But it was still awesome

    Never heard of this show before, but I checked it on youtube & it looks interesting.

    If you think it's animation is bad though, you should check out the marvel superheroes toons from 1966: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gl5rq-Z5_3Y

    Even worse is the syncrovox stuff from shows like clutch cargo. You know on late night talk shows when they put a person's moving mouth over a still picture? Well, that was actually used as a production level animation technique back around the 60s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MHg1-mpcUY

    The animation sucked and the constant recaps and vignettes hyping various characters were as lame as it comes but nothing touches the epicness of the theme song!

    The 1966 hulk one is better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SNRGXzG5OE

    When I was younger, there was a pawn shop in the downtown core of my city, that had a ton of Rocket Robinhood animation cells, from all kinds of scenes. I personally hated the show and recently re-watched it a bit and still, bad.

    I watched it on Teletoon as well during the time that this thread was created. I don't think it's on TV at all anymore.

    Rocket Robin Hood set the standard for poorly put together cartoons but i think the mighty hercules cartoonwas definitly a close second have a look

    these two shows used to come on when there was absolutly nothing else on tv (at least where i live anyways)

    Awful, just awful. Yet I'm fascinated by this stuff too. Even when new these toons were considered throwaway entertainment. That any of them survive is amazing!

    Rocket Robin Hood was my first experience with the legend of Robin Hood, I watched the show in the late '70s & early '80s.

    I didn't even know Saturday morning cartoons existed. The only cartoons I knew about were:

    Rocket Robin Hood, Hercules, Spider-Man, The Flintstones, Popeye, and the various holiday specials.

    However, in the fall of '83 is when I was first introduced to Saturday morning cartoons, and I was hooked!
