Storyline

Mercury, the winged messenger, drops his sandals off with a centaur to be repaired. The centaur, who has coveted wings to the extent that he's used a couple ducks to help him fly, takes the sandals for a spin, and fails to finish the repair job on time. Mercury returns; in a panic, the centaur strips the wings from a couple birds and nails them to some plain sandals, but Mercury is not fooled. He turns the centaur into a pretzel.

There Was Little Greek (Or Funny) In This
15 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only good thing I can say about this cartoon is that it looks decent. The colors are nice and the transfer is pretty, certainly better than the others I saw on a very cheap DVD.

However, the story is stupid right from the start. It's about Greek gods and mythical characters yet everyone speaks with an Italian accent! What's with that? One of the guys, "Hercules," even exclaims "Mama Mia!"

Give me a break!

This is not funny in the slightest, just a story about a centaur who is a blacksmith of sorts, has all kinds of difficulty fixing Hercules' Mercury-typed winged sandals. I'm not even going to explain what went on....it's a waste of time. Don't waste yours with this one.
