Special Art of the Day #220: Zootopia X Disney's Robin Hood

Best Furry Movie Poem by grrrwolf

Disney's Robin Hood was in many ways the spiritual ancestor of Zootopia. Byron Howard, one of Zootopia's co directors, has said he was inspired to go into animation after seeing Robin Hood as a kid, and it's well known that Mayor Lionheart was modeled on the character of King Richard in Robin Hood.

With that in mind, we present a collection of Zootopia/Robin Hood crossover pics.

Enjoy, and be sure to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source links.

Get your art after the break!


First, a little appropriate music.  Robin Hood opened with a folk song, and so we'll do the same here.  This is an actual English folk tune from the time when Robin Hood lived, "Sumer Is Icumen In," sung in Middle English and performed by Richard Thompson.

It all began with a chance encounter between two foxes.

Robin took to Nick immediately.

And the feeling was mutual.

Of course, Nick Wilde never could deny his nature.

But then again, neither could Robin.

Better watch the ale there, guys; too much of that stuff can lead to some reckless behavior.

See, what'd I tell you?

"Oh no! What's happened to Robin?  Did someone shoot him with a Nighthowler dart?"

"No, he caught Nick trying to hit on Maid Marian."

And if you think you're in trouble now, Nick...wait 'til Judy finds out.

On the subject of Judy, here she is hanging out with Little John.

Nick and Judy as Robin and Marian.  Somehow, I don't think the helpless damsel bit works for her

If there's one thing Nick Wilde and Robin Hood have in common, it's their big hearts.

But then, they also have some serious differences.

Sooo, what do you think would happen if the Sheriff of Nottingham joined the ZPD?  (Technically, he's a law officer, don't forget.)

Tch!  And all this time I thought it was Benjamin Clawhauser.

I can't decide if that little fox and bunny are Nick and Judy's kids or their younger selves.

The gang's all here.  Duke Weaselton is perfect as Sir Hiss, but I think Clawhauser would have been better as Friar Tuck

Until next time folks, fær thee wel.

    The wise Sir Bedevere was the first to join King Arthur's knights. But other illustrious names were soon to follow: Sir Lancelot the Brave, Sir Galahad the Pure, and Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot, who had nearly fought the Dragon of Angor, who had nearly stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol, and who had personally wet himself at the Battle of Badon Hill, and the aptly-named Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Film. Together they formed a band whose names and deeds were to be retold throughout the centuries: The Knights of the Round Table.
