Robin Hood (1973)

The story of the legendary outlaw is portrayed with the characters as humanoid animals. (IMDb)
Disney takes on unjust economics and class warfare: there’s literally a 7-year old bunny with a wooden sword yelling “Death to tyrants!” at one point. Undeniably goofy and fun (the archery tournament is a blast and the villains are hilarious), but it doesn’t shy away from the despair of poverty and oppression (“Sometimes ups outnumber the downs, but not in Nottingham”). The plot lacks a solid thrust and arc, but it still hits all the right notes, especially with that golden soundtrack.
8/10 (Great)
