Robin Good And His Not-So-Merry Men is the VeggieTales take on the tale of Robin Hood. Robin Good and his band of merry men help people by fundraising from the rich and giving to the poor. It sounds like the perfect plan, but greedy prince starts stealing townspeople's hams, and donations go down. To compensate, the merry men without Robin try to rob from the rich. Unfortunately, they try to steal from the greedy Prince John, and are captured! Will Robin overcome his hurt and rescue his friends, helping to restore hope for the townspeople?
Carrying an important message for kids to learn, Robin Good And His Not-So-Merry Men helps kids learn about handling their hurt feelings and sticking to doing the right thing (not stealing!). It takes a fun spin on this classic story, and Larry the Cucumber as Robin is funny! Here is the trailer to the story:
