Did You Know?


In the legend, Hercules was far from being the noble hero that the cartoon portrays him as: he is described as being a womanizer, a glutton with a rapacious appetite for food, and the murderer of his wife and children. See more »

It's a great cartoon & not just for the fun of Nostalgia's sake.
4 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes It was this very cartoon of which had sparked my enthusiasm for Greco-Roman Mythology.

I was first acquainted with this cartoon by watching it on both Saturday and Sunday Mornings on Boomtown of which is a Classic Little Kids Cowboy Show seen on Boston Television and lasted for so many years.It Starred The Cowboy named Rex Trailer.

Johnny Nash sings the theme song well too.It's catchy for nostalgia's sake too. So each time in a classroom when Greco-Roman Mythology was covered I was the one to participate the most of anyone in the class.

When I first heard The Story of Daedelus and his Son Icarus it reminded me of The Daedelus in the Cartoon of whom looked nothing like this one.
