Here’s the major reason I chose to keep the Iago pin from the previous post about this collection. Allan-A-Sale is awesome…he’s from an older movie (1973), a bit obscure, and plays a mandolin. He’s voiced by Roger Miller and acts as a sort of narrator to the move through song. He’s the minstrel and inspired by an actual character from the original Robin Hood tale. He sings the song that I think of whenever I hear the movie mentioned:

“Robin Hood and Little John
Walkin’ through the forest
Laughin’ back and forth
At what the other’ne has to say
Reminiscin’, This-‘n’-thattin’
Havin’ such a good time
Oo-de-lally, Oo-de-lally
Golly, what a day”
