Trivia

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 »

Greatest theme song ever!
25 December 2011 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

I've read the other reviews and agree with most of them. I remember watching this when I was 4 or 5 years old. It may not have had the best animation, and it certainly had less than thrilling action, but remember the time was completely different. The children of the 60's who watched this were enthralled by a hero who had flaws and sidekicks who were unquestionably loyal. And it had the best theme song ever! Thank you, Johnny Nash for singing a song that to this day I can remember word for word! It was amazing and I wish I could find it here in Houston. Does anyone know where we can get copies of this cartoon for review? Does anyone have tapes or copies?
