- Robin Hood opened to mixed reviews and an above-average box office gross.
- The comic book adaptation of the film was the first Disney comic to be printed by Marvel since the acquisition early in '73.
- After Robin Hood was finished, Wolfgang Reitherman was fired and Walt appointed himself to direct the studio's next animated feature, Beauty and the Beast.​
 
@OldNavy1988 is it too late for a Walt Disney Osamu Tezuka collaboration? The initially American syndication run ended in 1965 and if Walt Disney and Osamu Tezuka stayed in contact with each other after their 1964 meeting Disney could do a second dubbing.

Not too late, but it might give Grantray-Lawrence more to do since Walt farms stuff out to those guys.
 
Since Disney owns Marvel, and CBS owns DC Comics, I have two questions:

1: Will we see an animated series based on Star Wars as one of Marvel Productions's first projects, if not their very first?
2: Is CBS going to have a massive shift in their Saturday Morning content from OTL, what with the ownership of DC Comics?

I just thought that I should ask about these while I still can.

1) Most likely, it'll still be the Boba Fett segment from the Star Wars Holiday Special that becomes the first animated project based on the show. It is likely that Marvel Productions could directly evolve from Grantray-Lawrence before that.

2) Not yet.
