The Robin Hood & Little John

robin hood and little john

In the 17th century, ballads were composed explaining how various Merry Men met Robin Hood. The men come and one of them named William Stutely asks why Robin is all wet and he says it is because he has been thrown into the brook by the stranger on the bridge. Dobson and Taylor 1976, p. In Hollywood, the same actor Alan Hale played Little John in 1922, 1938 and 1946, always with the same enduring portrayal of the ballad. Commercial as it may be, this ballad still outlines a focus of solidarity and tricksterism, presenting a central event in the myth which has remained dear, even obsessive, in the hearts of theatrical and film redactors over the centuries. When John went undercover as a servant to the Sheriff of Nottinham he used the alias Reynold Greenlefe which was a name he borrowed from a fellow Merry Man who competed in the Archery Contest for the gold and silver arrows.

Oo De Lally ( Roger Miller ) ‒ Guitar

Meeting Robin Robin came upon John going the other way on a narrow bridge. Robin says he will learn to shoot with the best and will roam the forest with him and his men, owning no land or money, because whatever they need they can steal from the clergy passing through. In reality, it's harder and takes longer to redraw an existing sequence. Robin Hood and Little John Walking through the forest Laughing back and forth At what the other one has to say Reminiscing, this'n'thattin' Having such a good time Oo-de-lally, oo-de-lally Golly, what a day Never ever thinking there was danger in the water They were drinking, they just guzzled it down Never dreaming that a scheming sherrif and his posse Was a-watching them and gathering around Robin Hood and Little John Running through the forest Jumping fences, dodging trees And trying to get away Contemplating nothing But escape and finally making it Oo-de-lally, oo-de-lally Golly, what a day Never ever thinking there was danger in the water They were drinking, they just guzzled it down Never dreaming that a scheming sherrif and his posse Was a-watching them and gathering around Robin Hood and Little John Running through the forest Jumping fences, dodging trees And trying to get away Contemplating nothing But escape and finally making it Oo-de-lally, oo-de-lally Golly, what a day Oo-de-lally, oo-de-lally Golly, what a day. They fight as viciously as if they were thrashing corn, neither willing to give in and Robin becoming especially incensed when the stranger cracks him on the crown hard enough to draw blood. This ballad was printed by Child from a text in a 1723 London anthology, A Collection of Old Ballads; he later found a copy printed by W.

It looks like a proper traditional pub too and serves a lot of different beers. On the other side, they emerge. Robin Hood and Little John, walking through the forest Laughing back and forth at what the other one has to say Reminiscing this and that and having such a good time Oo-de-lally, oo-de-lally, golly, what a day Never ever thinking there was danger in the water They were drinking, they just guzzled it down Never dreaming that a scheming sheriff and his posse Was a-watching them and gathering around Robin Hood and Little John, running through the forest Jumping fences, dodging trees and trying to get away Contemplating nothing but escape and finally making it Oo-de-lally, oo-de-lally, golly, what a day Oo-de-lally, oo-de-lally, golly, what a day. As take a straw and throw it up in the air; you shall see by that which way the wind is, which you shall not do by casting up a stone. A play called Robin Hood and Little John was registered in 1594 but has not survived, and there was another from 1640, though they may of course have been general dramas based on sources like the Gest or even Robin Hood and the Monk. I also describe some of the historical people named Little John on my section. As with Robin Hood and the Curtal Friar and The Jolly Pinder of Wakefield, there is clear evidence of the much earlier existence of this story.

The pub has been run by the Johnson family Ray, Caterina and son Tony Since the 1980's. Introduction Little John was practically Robin Hood's equal in the early ballads and references. The story of Robin Hood and Little John is the most famous. The fight between Robin Hood and Little John on the bridge is also frequently portrayed in film and television versions of the legend. The film lacks the real drama that makes others of its kind better cinematically. He had no wife nor children in the original tales but more modern stories have given him both.

When the rightful King returned to England John was pardoned alongside all the rest of Robin's band although at least one legend has him being hung in Dublin in the 12th century. In that time it has won London Pub of the year on three occastions, plus Local Pub of the year on ten occasions. As soon as Robin is out of the brook, he blows on his horn to summon his men. The larger John defeated Robin with his favored weapon and sent the Nobleman into the river. Robin reacted by calling his Merry Men and inviting John into the band where he would become one of Robin's most loyal friends and one who had no problems questioning Robin's choices.
