It wasn't until a revision in 1795 that Robin Hood stole from the rich to give to the poor. In previous versions of the story, he just....stole, and partied it up with his Merry Men in the woods. The story had no clear good side.

In fact, a lot of old stories started out like this and were rewritten later with a moral slant. This article about the phenomenon is interesting:

Today I learned the Japanese version of The Krion Conquest was called "Magical Doropie" and it contained a much larger story than the American version -- because every cutscene was cut from the one we got (except the opening). Originally the plan was to release the game as-is and call it "Francesca's Wand," and the boxart seems to indicate it was painted while those plans were still in place:

The first season of Timon and Pumbaa had some music videos. One was "Stand By Me" and it had a significant bump in the animation, like it was done with CAPS instead of ink and paint. Turns out it actually did run in theaters, before Disney's "Tom And Huck."

This would have been late 1995, which meant the short would have already appeared on television. Weird.

I believe the VHS release of Tom & Huck retained the short, too.

Opinion changed from The 7D. I didn't like it, because it's often more bland despite the animation and the writing as well. It's kinda more like Teen Titans Go! I don't even blame on Parry Gripp's music.
Has anyone seen the new Sonic the Hedgehog movie yet? I just did and I LOVED IT! It was such a fun and heartwarming movie and I can't wait to see more of Sonic in the sequel (if it gets made)!
You think the 2016 reboot is the worst entry in the Powerpuff Girls franchise? That honor actually goes to "Powerpuff Girls Z". How about that?
I'm one of those people that's more familiar with Sonic's arch-enemy being called "Dr. Ivo Robotnik" rather than "Eggman".

As I mentioned, Melanie Minichino should definitely sing more.
