GENERAL INFORMATION. "The Adventures of Robin Hood" ran on television from September, 1955 to September, 1958. Starring Richard Greene, the show was sponsored by Johnson & Johnson, the New Jersey pharmaceutical and tape company. In the first of several missions for this company, Baston designed Robin and Little John jousting on a crude bridge over a stream. The inscription reads: "Johnson & Johnson, Makers of Bandaid - Sponsors of Robin Hood T.V." and was distributed by Johnson & Johnson salesmen.
A second design portraying Little John presiding over the vanquished Robin in the water was never used.
