Teletoon here in Canada is currently playing that classic of '60s cheapo but fun animation Rocket Robin Hood. Interestingly tonight's story was one I absolutely didn't remember. Robin, Maid Marion, and the cook find themselves menaced by Doctor Mortula, a rather blatant Dracula ripoff. Its kind of surprising they went to the effort and didn't just have Robin encounter Dracula and be done with it. Of course its possible someone actually owned the rights to the Dracula stories in the late '60s. Anyways this one surprised me. I watched Rocket Robin Hood over and over again as a kid, so you'd think I would have seen this episode before. I've remembered the other episodes I've seen.
