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:

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.

It didn't, but the Disney Sing-Along Songs video Topsy Turvy did.

I’m adding Primo to Triad, turning it into QUAD. So now it’s Qubo, DiscFam, UniKids, and Primo. Should I add V-Me Kids to it for preschool content? It’s a sister channel to Primo, so it won’t affect it that much.
am I the only one posting the updates for Slimetime while nobody else seems to care????

He was so young.
In my April Fool's Day prank regarding either Mediacorp reviving Kids Central or Universal Kids merging with Qubo, I mistakenly called Primo TV as "V-Me Kids". I guess V-Me Kids ceased operation years ago. Sorry.
