First seen in 'They came from outer space' and then in 'Robin the Bad', this had a special edge, as the Howard Lew-Lewis 'Aka' Rabies, appeared in the film.
Here is some of the transcript from 'They Came from Outer Space.'
Marian- Robin, do stop talking in that silly voice. One of these days we're going to be famous, and our story will be told all over the world in moving picture galleries. It's going to look really stupid if we're all nicely spoken and you're gibbering on like a posey cowboy isn't it.
Barrington- Yeah, It'll never sell man!
(These were references to Kevin Costner's American accent in the film.)
Rabies- So do you think our story will be in one of those moving picture galleries?
Robin- Oh bound to be I'd say.
Little Ron- What, 'Robin Hood Prince of Weeds'?
Rabies- Will I be in it do you reakon?
Robin- Oh I shouldn't think so, I see you more as one of those naff comedy characters. But I'll be up there, being bold, being brave-
Little Ron- Being upstaged by the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Robin- And in the end of course, cause I'm the hero, I'll get to snog the girl won't I?
Little Ron- What Marian? She'd rather be snogged by a warthog with bad breath.
Robin- Not the real Marian obviously, she's too bossy. Someone soft, someone who can reconise my powers of leadership.
Rabies- Someone daft you mean.
(Both references to Howard's appearence in the film, and the acting of Alan Rickman 'Aka' The Sheriff of Nottingham.)
