October animated gif challenge – day 18

Guy of Gisborne and the Sheriff of Nottingham made a great comedy duo in Robin Hood.  Today’s animated gif features both of these characters at the request of Joanna.

Sheriff and Guy

Richard Armitage and Keith Allen had a great deal of chemistry together.  Although Richard Armitage was my favorite actor in the series, the sheriff was my favorite character in the first two seasons because he had the funniest lines.

Joanna wrote, “Do you remember that scene from the RH2 episode with the medieval casino 😀 when the sheriff hits his head several times in Guy’s chest?  Highly amusing IMO. ”

Actually I have to admit that I didn’t remember that scene.  So I fast-forwarded through the boring non-Guy bits and found it.   😀  I do agree it’s vastly entertaining!

Here is your animated gif:

Richard Armitage and Keith Allen

This comes from episode 2 of RH2 entitled “The Booby and the Beast.”  The sheriff is shouting, “No, no, no!” when he realizes the outlaws have stolen from him yet again.  And since Guy is a bad guy but still likable –even if only for his looks– I added the caption, “So bad he’s good.”  😉

I was compelled to include Guy’s trademark sniff too!

    I loooove this one !!!

    Guy is so sexy with this outfit.

  2. Hehe! No, indeed. Yum, RA in leather… or pleather. Whatever that stuff is. 🙂

      @Twitterpatedss7: LOL! As you may know, Dawn French used to joke about the Guy costume being pleather, but RA has said it was real leather. Looks good on him no matter what! 😉

  3. Elaine says:

    I love this moment – it’s hilarious. Richard has a good point, in a lot of ways, Robin Hood is very much like panto. Of course there are very sobeing moment too, like Marian’s death/murder. But I shan’t dwell on that right now. No, no, no! Where’s a good chest when you need one???

  4. Joanna and BCC you are great!
    GIF part one: Guy trying to save his dignity when Sherry is too close at contact. Exhilarating!
    GIF part two: Guy sniffing and grinding his teeth as a real baddie coming out of a comic strip. Soooo sexy!

  5. Ania says:

    Ha ha ha, this is so funny! I love it! Oh, Guy can really make me laugh 🙂
    Joanna thanks for the excellent choice and Bccmee thanks for your perfect gif ♥

  6. Teuchter says:

    One of the best episodes in RH2! Always thought Guy looked fantastic in that long leather coat (yes, I read somewhere that it was real leather like his other outfits in RH). These scenes really cracked me up and Guy can do that sniff to perfection!! 😀 So thank you Joanna and Bccmee for another wonderful gif! Such fun!!!

    • bccmee says:

      @Teuchter: A real-life friend of mine counts this episode as a favorite too. I think I never finished watching it though because whenever Guy wasn’t present, I lost interest and fell asleep, LOL! I suspect it’s a case of no-Guy-onscreen-induced-narcolepsy! Perhaps I should seek out treatment with Dr. Track. 😉

      That *sniff* is hilarious! I wonder how that came into existence.

  7. Lady Prisca says:

    Excellent! Verrrrrrry gooooood choice Joanna (I had not noticed this moment so thank you).
    Even sniffing is so sexy with Richard , it’s amazing!
    This one is one of my favourite gifs since the begining,
    Wonderful Bccmee!

    • bccmee says:

      @Lady Prisca: There are so many masterful Richard Armitage acting moments and I’m discovering lots of new ones thanks to you and everyone participating in the animated gif project! Thanks so much for your comment and continued support. 🙂

    • April says:

      “Even sniffing is so sexy with Richard , it’s amazing!”. I agree with you at 100% LOL.

  8. You’ve picked one of my top 5 Guy moments there. Love it!

  9. Musa/Fabo says:

    Wouldn’t we all love to have leather clad Guy around so we could strike our head against his chest whenever we were stressed 😉
    Another great one! Thanks Bccmee and Joanna!

    (also can’t help but notice how much taller RA is than KA!)

  10. Tereza says:

    I loved this Bcc!RA makes the bad guy soooo good!
    Very funny the way like sheriff hits his head on Guy´s chest.
    what a snugly chest he seems to have.Oh!I envy the sheriif so much!

  11. GratianaDS90 says:

    Great gif, Bccmee!
    I love how RA as Sir Guy always played the straight man to KA’s wildly comical–and chewing the scenery mightly–Sheriff Vasy. Richard “reigned” in Keith’s over the top performances by reacting to him as if it were real. Ha!
    And of course, the other sneer inducing Sir Guy moment is when Sheriff Vasy rises to stand in his bath, buck naked. I read an interview of RA once where he said that he was trying to convey the humiliation Guy felt at that moment. However, RA also said that KA was a riot about him being naked in that scene, quite a cut up. Ha! I would have burst out laughing, myself–out of shock if nothing else–at seeing Vasy/Keith in the altogether. Ha! That’s why I’m a writer now and not performing any more. Ha!
    Cheers! Grati ;->
    P.S. Of course if Sir Guy rose to stand in his bath, naked–as he does in my new Guy fan fic–I would just swoon and hit the floor with a thud. Ha! Somehow, my heroine stays “vertical”. I don’t know how. Ha!

    • bccmee says:

      @GratianaDS90: Haha, I remember Guy’s expression when the sheriff removed himself from the bath too! Brilliant! The actors were well-matched with each other. I know what you mean about keeping a straight face. I have a heightened sense of humor and would be a terrible performer because it would be difficult to control my laughter.

      Have you finished your fanfic yet? Sounds like a fun ride! 😉

    • April says:

      GratianaDS90, your fic seem very interesting. Where can I read it please ??? 🙂

  12. Kaprekar says:

    I love that sneer!!!!!!

  13. CDoart says:

    Thank you, Joanna and Bccmee! Once again a perfect match between scenes and text. Wonderful! Your gif also shows me, that I really must have gone crazy. With other men I would not like the sniffing part, with him I adore even that ;o)

    • bccmee says:

      @CDoart: join the cRAy-cRAy train! I feel the same way about the sniff. It would be absolutely appalling if a regular person did that, but when it’s Guy, it’s another matter entirely! LOL! Thanks for your comment.

  14. Ana Cris says:

    Loved this animated gift (gif). Richard is so slim!

  15. tyme4t says:

    One of my favourite eps of RH! Love Guy & the Sherriff’s demented/dysfunctional relationship – often made me LOL!
    And LOVE the outfit on our Guy!

    • bccmee says:

      @tyme4t: The two actors seem like opposites based on interviews but they made hysterical magic on the show! I agree about laughing out loud, same here! Oh yeah, that coat too…. yum!

  16. kathryngaul says:

    I can’t remember that sniff – probably because it’s so gross! Yuck! But, yes, Richard does it soooo well, doesn’t he? The man is just too beautiful for words in that black leather.

    • bccmee says:

      @kathryngaul: The sniff is so over-the-top, I can’t help but be amused. It would be gross in real life though! Guy looks simply incredible in all that head-to-toe leather. ♥

  17. Lady Rose says:

    Ahaha! This made me laugh out loud.

  18. Joanna says:

    I’m greatly honored Bccmee!
    You made that beautiful detailet gif for my reqest.Thank you !(deep happy *sight*)
    I was like”see Suzie(my doughter)..see Maggie(my neighbour) Bccmee(they know yours work) made it for me!:D
    How do you know that I love the sniffing part?
    Guy and Sheriff reminds me “Pinky and the Brain”-do you remember these old cartoon?

    • bccmee says:

      @Joanna: Wow, I’m so pleased you liked how our joint project turned out! 😀 And what a delight that you share my work with friends and family. I’m the one who is honored. It was a pleasure working with you!

      When I saw that the chest-punching scene ended on the sheriff, I decided to add a little more of our favorite Guy. 😉 Glad you enjoyed the sniffing bit. Yes, I do remember “Pinky and the Brain.” Great analogy! Guy and the sheriff were somewhat cartoonish, LOL!

      Thank you again for your participation and very lovely comment, Joanna. *HUGS*

  19. mersguy says:

    Yes, the historically correct BB episdoe- LOL! Whether it’s a smirk, sneer or “sniff” Sir Guy’s timing was perfect. Thank you B and Joanna.
    I am glad he got rid of the sniffing though!

    • bccmee says:

      @mersguy: ROTFL re: “historically correct” episode! And once again we need a new vocabulary to describe a Richard Armitage character trait. Guy did seem to use a combination smirk, sneer and sniff. 😀

  20. Pamela says:

    I would like to thank the Guy of Gisbourne costume designer from the bottom of my heart! Thanks again, Bccmee 🙂

  21. fitzg says:

    Guy+Sniff.Here I am with my Kleenex box! Great gif, bccmee!

  22. fitzg says:

    The best Nottingham wool, bccmee. Greenwood green, too. 🙂

  23. I never thought I would miss Guy’s “sniff” but I do!
    Thanks bccmee for sharing, as always!

  24. Brooke says:

    As usual, great work, Bccmee. I got a laugh out of this one.
