Default The many incarnations of Robin Hood

Inspired by a thread in the Cafe Corner...

So, what are your favorite incarnations of Robin Hood? I've never seen "Robin Hood: Men in Tights" but I've seen the Disney animated movie and the old live-action movie, which was pretty good.

Literarily, my favorite would have to be The Outlaws of Sherwood by Robin McKinley. It makes the characters human, and incorporates the familiar tales while bringing across the realization that it wouldn't just be fun and games to be an outlaw trying to live off the woods.

Also, feel free to start up the conversation about Robin Hood of Pern, which thread in the Cafe Corner made me decide to start this one!
