This cheesy Canadian made cartoon is worth a few laughs.
15 April 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Probably the worst animation ever made, scripted for toddlers at best, "The Mighty Hercules" still serves to pull us forty something people back to our childhood.

Grouped in with "Rocket Robin Hood"(another Canadian "treasure"), "Spiderman" and the mother-lode "Batman" from the sixties, it's a wonder we're not all lactose intolerant from sitting in front of our "Radiation 2000" televisions watching the machinations of the "bad guys" during our half hour of video Nirvana.

What Herc would do during that half hour was too funny for words. It was all lightning and gold rings, Helena being victimized, Newton and Toot making us wish we hadn't started watching, and monsters that "cycle" in for the attack.

Herc never gets hurt enough to save the day, and Helena never gets her kiss.

We kids were surely glued to the TV during all these "action shows", and as adults, for the most part, most of us are pretty embarrassed to admit it.

This show was made by Adventure Cartoons for Trans Lux in Canada. If we do one thing well here in the Great White North, it's producing the highest quality cheese for television.
