Background notes: Nutsy is one of the characters created for the Disney version of Robin Hood, and not a part of the original Robin Hood mythology. Like the rest of the cast, he first appeared in the cartoon Robin Hood in 1973 (voice by Ken Curtis), and like the rest of the cast, it has been the only appearance in cartoons so far. Along with the other vulture Trigger, he was in charge of guarding the prison, and as his name suggest, he was the dumb one of the two.

In comics, he appeared with the rest of the cast in the comic book adaption of the cartoon from Gold Key in 1973, and appeared in the following series The Adventure of Robin Hood which lasted seven issues from 1974 to 1976. After the series folded, only a few Robin Hood stories were made during the late 1970s and the 1980s, and in these, Nutsy and Trigger only made sporadic appearances.

There are no indications of Nutsy having appeared in other media.
