    Disney's Hercules is by far one of the best movies to ever be shown. It introduced me, and many others to Greek mythology, and mode it fun for all. After the success with the movie, somebody thought it would be a good idea to make a spin off TV cartoon. Now normally spin offs on movies or TV shows tend to fail. Look at The Cleveland Show and Planet Sheen, but this series actually does a great job staying to the movie. The show is about Hercules in his continuing training to be a hero, and dealing with teen life. Now usually teen issues in a cartoon sound terrible, but Hercules makes it fun to watch with its lovable characters and excellent humor. It makes me wonder why most shows couldn't be like what Hercules did with teen issues. It makes teen issues fun, and makes teens to come over their issues. Unlike recent teen shows like True Jackson, or iCarly, or Sonny with a Chance, this show doesn't add stupid and melodramatic drama to it. The entire cast from the movie is here. You have Hercules, Phil, Pegasus, Zeus, Hades, Cassandra, and so on. Everyone is here, and are still just as goofy and funny like in the movie. The plots are great, and really good. Some are a little predictable, but they are mostly original ideas. The artwork is excellent and stays true to the movie's characters and set designs, and the animation is superb and flows very smoothly in this show. The humor is really good, and each character will make you laugh, especially Hades. My only complaint is that this show only lasted 7 months. I really think they could have kept going with this show, but I guess the creators were running out of ideas. If you haven't seen the film on this series yet, do so, and then see this show.moreless
  • A godly follow up to a fantastic movie.

    I say, spin-offs usually never work; they flub up the characters, kill off important ones, mix up ancient Greece and Rome, etc. This one refuses to do any of that, and successfully manages to get almost everyone (even the minor gods/goddesses!) back for a family reunion of sorts--even Hades and the Muses! It just goes to show that a good spinoff works--and that we get minor-character centered episodes for once--like the Aphrodite one, the Hera and Zeus-centered finale, and many more episodes that keep you reeling on the edge of your seat. Get rid of Hannah Montana, bring this show back!moreless
  • a good disney cartoon

    the show disneys hercules was about heruclues growing up as a teenager and a hero intraining like from the disney movie. and it showed him stoping bad guys and myicle animals and monsters that were from the movie. and he would go through problems and thing he had to deal with like fighting with his father zeaus all the time. the show was not on that long but i still thought i was a good disney cartoon that reminded me of the disney animated movie hercules. and that is why i give the show a 7.0 because it reminded me of the movie and i really enjoy disneymoreless

    True there is the canon problem of Hades knowing that Hercules is alive, but on the other hand the show wouldn't be as much fun without James Wood's sense of humor. Icarus - and eccentric but loyal guy who flew too close to the sun - and Cassandra - a gloomy but friendly psychic who keeps foretelling doom - are great additions and I wish they were in the movie. I also love the humor, especially with Icarus and Pain and Panic. It's also great that they made references to other Greek mythologies. The voice casting is also brilliant, especially since they use a couple of my favorite voice actors: David Hyde Pierce (Daedalus) and Dom DeLuise (Bacchaus)!moreless
