Trivia

The actual timeline of this doesn't actually fit with the movie. As the fates in the movie say hades can do his plan in 18 years (when hercules is 18 as well) and that's when Hercules meets Phil and learns of his parentage and meets Hades, but knows Phil and Hades (and of his parentage and at many times uses that to his advantage) in the series when he is 16 years old, it doesn't quite add up. It seems Hercules got his become a true hero mission a lot earlier in the series than in the movie (when he was 18) See more »

Goofs

Even though in the movie Hades introduces himself to Hercules like he's just met him for the first time, in the series he has multiple run-ins with him. See more »

A Cute, Halfway Intelligent Kids Show
27 July 1999 | by GislefSee all my reviews

Hercules hits all the typical Disney/kid-show notes, delivering moral messages and a lot of humor. Like the original Disney movie, but unlike shows like Aladdin and Little Mermaid, Hercules toss in lots of modern-day in-joking which keeps it somewhat interesting for the adults (like myself) to watch while the kiddies enjoy the show. There's also a lot of quality voice talent assembled here (how did they ever get James Woods??). Overall, this somewhat skewed look at Greek mythology is humorous enough.
