The Wizard's Ring[edit | edit source]
(reprinted from Robin Hood (A Golden Special) 96154)
Summary: Alan-a-Dale tells of Baron de Malin, a rich traveler who doesn't know about Robin Hood. Robin and Little John relieve him of his gold, then he continues to the castle. Sir Hiss tells Prince John that his cousin Slither is the baron's advisor, so he agrees to meet him. The baron wants to wed Maid Marian and offers the prince a chest of gold for her, but this is the chest Robin stole. When John and Hiss scoff at retrieving it, he shows them a ring that belonged to the wizard Thorga. It can magically show where Robin is at the moment. John demands the ring for Marian instead of the gold. The baron reluctantly agrees, but, not trusting the prince, gives the ring to his falcon to hold until after the ceremony.
Marian is heart-broken, so Lady Kluck has Abner the mouse sneak out of the castle to tell Friar Tuck to tell Robin. Tuck says he'll refuse to perform the ceremony, and Sexton the churchmouse says he won't play the "Wedding March" on the organ. The Sheriff of Nottingham arrives and summons the friar to the castle. Sexton goes to tell Robin.
Robin and Little John sneak into the castle. The prince and baron are nervous so the baron calls his hawk and uses the ring to see that Robin and Little John are crossing the moat. The Sheriff and his men chase them down a dead end alley, but Granny Beagle hides them in her dress shop, where she is making Marian's wedding veil. Robin disguises himself as Granny to deliver the veil in the morning, then Marian escapes in the same disguise, and Robin uses the veil to disguise himself as Marian. He proceeds with the ruse right through the wedding ceremony. When the friar proclaims them baron and baroness, Prince John demands the wizard's ring. The baron calls for it and gives it to him, but Sexton and his wife drive a prickly burr into John's foot, he drops the ring, and they grab it and run into their hole. Robin Hood unveils himself, and the townspeople help him escape.
