Robin Hood and The Babes in the Wood tells the story of the wicked Sheriff growing rich on the many taxes, he is forcing the poor townsfolk to pay and he is just about to become even richer.
Pip and Penny, recently orphaned and heirs to vast fortunes have been entrusted into his care, and he is hatching a horrible plan to make sure that he will inherit the cash and marry the beautiful Maid Marion into the bargain.
