Background notes: The Sheriff of Nottingham is one of the characters from the original Robin Hood mythology. While being an important character in the mythology, he does not have a name which is considered canon, and in this version, he is only known as the Sheriff of Nottingham. In the Disney version, he first appeared in the cartoon Robin Hood in 1973 (voice by Pat Buttram), and like the rest of the cast, it has been the only appearance in cartoons so far.

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, the Sheriff only appeared a few times.

A few items of merchandise has been seen, but for the most part, the character hasn't been seen in other media.
