Robin Hood: Men in Tights is a 1993 film parody of the story of Robin Hood, particularly parodying Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Other Robin Hood films, such as The Adventures of Robin Hood and Disney's Robin Hood, are also parodied. The film is reminiscent of Brooks's 1975 Robin Hood based sitcom When Things Were Rotten.

Directed by Mel Brooks. Written by Mel Brooks, J.D. Shapiro, and Evan Chandler.
The legend had it coming... Find out where Robin Hood put his Little John, what made Will Scarlet, and what did Friar Tuck into his tights that had Maid Marion all of a quiver?

Ahchoo: Pissed off? Man, if I was that close to a horse's weiner, I'd be worried about being pissed ON.
