RH004 - Little John - John Little was a legendary fellow outlaw of Robin Hood. Indeed it was Robin who changed his name to “Little John” on account of his great height and skill with both a bow and a quarterstaff. In film he was portrayed no less than three times by actor Alan Hale Sr. The famous British character actor James Robertson Justice also portrayed him in the 1952 Walt Disney version of the Robin Hood tale starring Richard Todd as Robin. This figure is a blend of both and stands four-square, arms folded, his hunting horn hanging from his belt.
