Synopsis
Prince John appoints Robin the new Sheriff of Nottingham. Robin accepts to protect the populace. His Merry Men are sent to France with Marion. The prince sends thugs in disguise, knights in armor, and ambushers after Robin. The ace archer even extricates himself from quicksand by roping a waterwheel. Captives say his Merry Men are actually locked in a dungeon. Disguising farmers as his own force, Robin frees his men and is "fired" as Sheriff.

Synopsis
Prince John has taken a hostage. Robin must free him, and protect himself, from three dangers - with only one arrow! Robin faces down a wild bull, an assassin while snared in a net, and a swing from a waterfall, finally using his one arrow. But in freeing the hostage from a treetop trap, Robin uses a second arrow - whittled and fletched from the first! "One arrow was too much for Prince John!"
