Disney's Robin Hood (the cartoon)

Besides being delightful, there are some great themes about whether Robin Hood is stealing from the rich to feed the poor (a bit socialistic) or whether he is stealing back taxes from the government to give to the taxpayers (more libertarian).

The later is the case of course as taxes are the obsession of King John through the movie.

The downside is that the final resolution comes from the return of 'good government' in the form of King Richard. But then you also have talking foxes and bears to contend with as well.
