This spin-off to Disney's Hercules follows Herc's many labors during the years he spent training how to be a hero under the tutelage of satyr Philoctetes. Olympian Gods and Goddesses as well as Hades and Pegasus often visit him.
I noticed this recently on Comcast and, being a mythology buff, decided to give it a whirl. It was really, really bad. The animation was very 1960s. The story was, as expected, not the real story of Hercules, but what do you expect? It's hard to get a story of philandering and wife and child killing to fit into a cartoon. Still, I'm unsure why this was even made when the Disney is (sadly) superior in every way. Even little things they could have finally gotten right like the lion skin cape or the carrying of a club instead of a sword were simply ignored. At least Hera is actually the villain. Bottom line: if you have a chance to watch it, don't bother. You'll never get that time back.
