"Birth of the Hero" (Japanese: Mori no Etoranze 「森のエトランゼ」) is the first episode of the anime series, Robin Hood and was originally broadcasted on July 29, 1990.


After the Huntingtons disobey Baron Alwine’s orders, their castle is burned to the ground. Young Robert Huntington, the future Robin Hood, flees the lotus flower of flames, and together with his friend Will and his sisters, Winifred and Jenny, takes refuge in Sherwood Forest. In the forest they have two important encounters. First, they meet Friar Tuck, who is doing his utmost to defy the Baron and they then meet John Little (better known as “Little John”), the leader of a band of young outlaws who have taken refuge in the forest from the Baron’s tyranny.
