Step back in time to the comedic chaos of Sherwood Forest with "When Things Were Rotten," the hilarious 1975 television series from the legendary Mel Brooks and producers Norman Stiles, and John Boni. Set in the days of yore, this uproarious spoof of the Robin Hood legend is a timeless classic filled with slapstick humor and unforgettable characters.

Join the bumbling yet well-intentioned Robin Hood (played by Dick Gautier) as he leads his band of merry men, including Dick Van Patten as Friar Tuck, Bernie Kopell as Alan-a-Dale, David Sabin as Little John and Richard Dimitri who played a dual role as identical twin brothers Renarldo, one of the Merry Men, and Bertram, the Sheriff’s right-hand man. Together, they embark on a series of misadventures, thwarting the dastardly schemes of the nefarious Sheriff of Nottingham (played by Henry Polic II) and the wicked Prince John (played by Ron Rifkin).

Some notable guest stars who appeared in the series: Sid Caesar, John Byner, Dudley Moore, Steve Landesberg, Paul Williams, Joe E. Ross, Lainie Kazan, and Ron Glass.

Packed with puns, sight gags, and Brooks' trademark irreverent humor, "When Things Were Rotten" is a riotous romp through medieval England that will leave you laughing out loud. Whether it's Robin and his men attempting to rescue Maid Marian (played by Misty Rowe) from peril or engaging in absurd sword fights, each episode delivers non-stop laughs and entertainment for the whole family.

Rediscover the magic of Mel Brooks' comedic genius with all 13 episodes of "When Things Were Rotten," presented in this complete 3-DVD set. So gather 'round the hearth, don your tights, and prepare for a rollicking good time as you journey back to a time when things were definitely, hilariously, rotten!
