In the 90s, Disney was turning many of their properties into video games. The Jungle Book and Pinocchio received video game adaptations, but Robin Hood was strangely absent.

We're talking about a character who canonically runs, jumps, and shoots arrows. The film itself has divisions among enemies in which the weasels are the easy guards, the rhinos are the strong guards, and the alligator with sword and shield is even tougher. The American football scene, in which Madam Cluck runs through a bunch of rhino guards, flat out looks like a mode seven level in a Super Nintendo game.

It would've been the perfect IP for Disney to have turned into a game.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was another one.

It received a game on Intellivision, but the series was already in decline on the NES era rolled around. It received a video game recently which seems to capture the spirit of the show. So I guess that one is better late than never.

And I don't think Thundercats has had a good video game of any kind for any of their adaptations. The closest thing is Lost Eye of Thundera, a generic hack 'n' slash game for British home computers.

I think it would have been neat if My Life as a Teenage Robot got a video game. She has so many modes for her to change into, weapons out the wazoo, a ton of enemies to fight, it could have been really awesome.

Wreck-It Ralph is a movie about video games, but it only got the usual movie game tie-in.

Last Airbender deserves a great video game but I would never expect to get anything more than what was actually made.

With Nickelodeon announcing a continuation of the series, including an animated movie, it's likely to get a video game in the future. As to the quality of that game, I cannot speak.

True. Hopefully the new stuff picks up enough momentum to warrant a real budget being put into it if it does happen.

I’m just happy to see the series back alive (apart from comics).

Gravity Falls deserved a Lucasarts-style point and click adventure game.

Instead we got a super generic platformer on 3DS

Its baffling why they never made a my little pony:fim game during the height of brony mania. G3 mlp got a ds game at least but the gen that bumped the franchise from second tier into the upper escelon only a few shows like spongebob or dragonball occupy couldn't even get a s***ty shovelware 3ds title. Wasted oppertunity there.
Not changing my signature until call of duty penguin warfare or a cod game about a penguin uprising is released.

Wasn’t there a fighting fangame that got C&D’d by Hasbro and they had to rebrand it ? Would’ve been great to see the original vision for it.
