This spin-off of Disney's Hercules (1997) follows Hercules' 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.
While Aladdin may still be living on the streets of Agrabah, he is now engaged to the beautiful and spirited Princess Jasmine. "Al" and Jasmine, along with monkey sidekick Abu, the Magic Carpet, the fast-talking, shape-shifting Genie, and Iago the short-tempered parrot continue their adventures exploring the world and protecting Agrabah.Written by
Though the series follows The Return of Jafar (1994) chronologically, it actually premiered just before the movie. So certain elements (such as why Iago was a "good guy" and why the Genie was still with them) were unexplained. The opening credits originally included scenes from The Return of Jafar (1994). By the third season many of the clips were replaced by scenes from previous episodes. See more »
This was a good series and a good adaptation of the popular films. There was a lot of action in this long running cartoon series as well as humor. Most of the cast from the movies were here for this series. While some were not, most notably of course would be Robin Williams who voiced the Genie in two of the movies. Dan Castellaneta (Homer from The Simpsons) came in to voice the Genie and in my opinion sounds a lot like Williams. A fun series for the entire family.
