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?

Prince John

  • Tell everyone that when the day is out we shall have a wedding. Or a hanging. Either way, we're gonna [joyfully snaps fingers] have a lot of fun, huh? [everybody cheers]


  • Let's get out of this ladies clothing and get into our tights!


Robin Hood: Kindly let me pass.
Little John: Uh, no. Sorry, but a toll is a toll, and a roll is a roll, and if we don't get no tolls, then we don't eat no rolls. [proudly] I made that up.
Robin Hood: It's very fascinating. But I'm afraid I'm going to have to hurt you.

Robin Hood: You've just entered the territory of Robin Hood and his Merry Men.
Rabbi Tuckman: [makes a suggestive wave of his hand] Faigelehs?
Robin Hood: No, no, we're straight, just merry.
Rabbi Tuckman: As I. And who are you, with the exceptionally long feather in your hat?
Robin Hood: I am Robin of Loxley.
Rabbi Tuckman: Robin of Loxley? I've just come from Maid Marian, the woman whose heart you've stolen, you prince of thieves, you! I knew her parents before they were taken in the plague, Lord and Lady Bahgel. You know, you two were made for each other. I mean, what a combination. Loxley and Bahgel! It can't miss!

Robin Hood: Blinkin, I'd like you to meet Ahchoo.
Blinkin: A Jew? Here?

Robin Hood: I've come to warn you that if you do not stop levying these evil taxes, I shall lead the good people of England in a revolt against you.
Prince John: And why should the people listen to you?
Robin Hood: Because, unlike some other Robin Hoods, I can speak with an English accent.

Prince John: Such an unusual name. Latrine. How did your family come by it?
Latrine: We changed it in the 9th Century.
Prince John: You changed it to Latrine?
Latrine: Yeah! It used to be Shithouse.
Prince John: It's a good's a good change.

Rabbi Tuckman: Excuse me, King. Why, if you like this guy so much, do you object to his marrying Maid Marian?
King Richard: I have no objection, but I have not yet kissed the bride. It is a custom, and my royal right. [hands the rabbi his sword] Hold this, Father.
Rabbi Tuckman: Rabbi.
King Richard: Whatever.
[tilts Maid Marian and gives her a very long kiss]
Rabbi Tuckman: [impressed] It's good to be the king.
King Richard: Now... [voice squeaking] you may marry them!
Rabbi Tuckman: Thank you. Here's your knife.
King Richard: Sword.
Rabbi Tuckman: Whatever.

Robin Hood: As my first order of business, I would like to appoint a new Sheriff... my friend Ahchoo.
Townspeople: A black sheriff?!
Blinkin: He's black?
Achoo: And why not? It worked in Blazing Saddles.
