The story of Robin Hood would not be quite the same without the greedy cantankerous Friar Tuck among Robin's outlaws, the Merry Men. In recent times he has been viewed as a politically incorrect figure, when in 2006 the BBC failed to include him in their cast for "Robin Hood"

Friar Tuck has always been one of the most popular and highly respected characters in the legend of Robin Hood. There was never anything politically incorrect about the affection and regard he was always afforded for his ability as a swordsman, spiritual adviser, and lawyer. In recent times concern has been expressed that he was regarded as a Billy Bunter type; a figure of fun. This is absurd and totally incorrect.
