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 »

The Best Of The Classic 60's Cartoons
23 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Say what you want to about this cartoon, but it was a 60's Cartoon gem. By todays standards the stories were over simplistic, and predictable but they stuck a real heroic chord with me. The theme music is still unforgettable. Hercules has a slight resemblance of the Max Flisher Superman (in a toga) but this show was fun, power packed with excitement. I love the good versus evil theme that Hercules brought to us. The plots were imaginative, with stories such as the Chair of Forgetfulness, The Pod Of Transformation, The Hydra, and The Box of Pandora. This is a Cartoon show I would really love to own for my collection. To some of you others who might think it's crap, you can have your Simpsons, and South Park. The Mighty Hercules Rock!
