Detailed Synopsis

A group of bowmen shoot flaming arrows into the sky. A Complaining Villager yells her house is on fire and Buxom Lass yells to call the fire brigade. The Fire Marshall arrives with his men and Angry Villager complains there should be a better way of doing the credits and the Fire Marshall says every time they do a Robin Hood movie, their village gets burned down. The Sherwood Forest Rapper-Dancers introduce what is happening and how Prince John (Robin Hood Men in Tights)|Prince John and the Sheriff of Rottingham were raising the taxes on the local people and how the people's morale was low. They then continue that Robin Hood (Robin Hood Men in Tights)|Robin was in prison and about to be executed.

At the Khalil Prison in Jerusalem, Robin Hood is brought before the Dungeon Maitre D', who takes Robin to his cell. Robin is given a beard to match appropriate attire by Irving and then introduced to the Head Saracen Guard. Head Saracen Guard questions Robin about the location of King Richard (Robin Hood Men in Tights)|King Richard. After Robin refuses to talk, Head Saracen Guard tells Assistant Saracen Guard to hand the tongue looseners to him and after using them on Robin, Robin is chained next to Asneeze. Asneeze introduces himself and then figures out they can get themselves free using their feet. They break the bar holding their chains which alerts the Assistant Saracen Guard who walks into the cell. Robin and Asneeze tell the Assistant Saracen Guard, Robin is willing to tell the location of King Richard and Assistant Saracen Guard runs off excited to tell his superior. After he leaves, Robin and Asneeze free themselves and the other prisoners and escape and the Assistant Saracen Guard returns to find everyone gone. Three men in jockey uniforms race until Lead Camel Jockey pulls ahead. Asneeeze tells Robin, his son Ahchoo is an exchange student in England and asks Robin to look after him. Robin swims his way back to England and rents a horse. He comes across a group of Sheriff of Rottingham's soldiers beating up on Ahchoo. Robin helps Ahchoo fight them off and the Sheriff's Guard yells that Robin and Achoo haven't seen the last of them. Robin then unfurls six arrows and pins the Sheriff's Guard to a tree. Robin and Ahchoo ride to Loxley Hall as it is being repossessed by the Tax Assessor. The Tax Assessor hands Robin a parchment that states that due to failure to pay taxes, all the lands, castles and properties belonging to the Loxley family are to be taken. The castle is rolled away leaving Blinkin exposed sitting on the toilet reading a braille copy of Ye Olde Playboy. Robin greets Blinkin, who initially confuses him with a statue. Blinkin tells him his parents are dead, including Robin's brothers, his dog Pongo, his fish Goldy and even his cat. Blinkin gives Robin a locket Robin's father wanted him to have that included a key inside which unlocked the greatest treasure in the land. Ahchoo and Blinkin greet each other and a Young Lad runs up to the group asking for help. The Sheriff of Rottingham rides up as his men play kazoos. The Sheriff accuses Young Lad of poaching in King John's land. After Robin asks if it is an offense, the Sheriff sarcastically asks him where he has been and Robin counters that he has been fighting with King Richard in the Crusades as his father wasn't able to get him in the National Guard. Robin cuts the strap on the Sheriff's saddle and forces the Sheriff to ride away upside down. Young Lad tells Robin he will tell others of his bravery and Robin says a long list of unjustices he plans to rectify. In her castle, Marian (Robin Hood Men in Tights)|Marian sits in a tub and sings a song wondering when her true love will arrive. Broomhilde walks in and tells Marian she needs to get out of the tub before she catches a cold. A bluebird lands on Marian's hand and she wishes she will meet a man who will possess the key to her girdle. The Sheriff enters Prince John's castle and tells him
