WHEN THINGS WERE ROTTEN (ABC 1975)
“When Things Were Rotten” is a comical Robin Hood parody created in 1975 by Mel Brooks, Norman Stiles, and John Boni. Robin Hood – who is not the brightest character – along with the incompetent members of his gang in Sherwood Forest will keep you laughing with sight gags, comical dialog, over-the-top anachronisms and a witty theme song. There’s plenty of skillful comedic acting from the series cast, including Dick Gautier as Robin Hood, Dick Van Patten as Friar Tuck, Bernie Kopell as Alan-a-Dale, Henry Polic II as the Sheriff of Nottingham, Ron Rifkin as Prince John, Misty Rowe as Maid Marian, and David Sabin as Little John. Richard Dimitri played a dual role as identical twin brothers Renarldo, one of the Merry Men, and Bertram, the Sheriff’s right-hand man.
Some notable guests stars who appeared in the series: Sid Caesar, John Byner, Ron Glass, Dudley Moore, Steve Landesberg, Paul Williams, Joe E. Ross, Lainie Kazan, and Ron Glass.
