Robin Hood

Robin Hood is a heroic outlaw and skilled archer in English folklore, known for the phrase "robbing from the rich and giving to the poor". While he is a completely fictional character, he is one of the most powerful, enduring legends of England.
Each generation grows up with their own imagery of Robin Hood, his followers and enemies, and what they stood for. His stories have inspired at least 12 novels, 8 stage adaptations, 7 TV series, 8 films plus 8 cartoon and 9 feature-length spoofs and 7 musicals – and probably more of each since this list was compiled. Up to a million people visit Sherwood Forest each year, and it seems safe to say that very few of them come primarily to see some ancient vegetation.
