Robin Hood: Lardner's Ring

A mortally wounded messenger from King Richard flees Locksley Manor, pursued by Gisborne's men and runs straight into the arms of Robin.

In his dying breaths the messenger utters the word "Lardner" but Robin doesn't know what that means - worse still Gisborne and the Sheriff are hunting the very same Lardner!

Cultural References
"Lardner's Ring" is likely a reference to blacklisted American writer Ring Lardner, Jr., who wrote a large number of episodes for The Adventures of Robin Hood in the 1950s under a variety of pseudonyms.

When the Sheriff commands his men by saying "We must catch the pigeon! Catch the pigeon now!", this is also the catchphrase of Dick Dastardly in Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines.
