Cartoon Summary:

A Disney update of classic mythology. Hercules, the son of the Greek Gods Zeus and Hera, is abducted from his Mount Olympus home and taken to Earth by Pain and Panic- the sidekicks of Hades, the God of the Underworld. The fiery figure sees Zeus's son and an obstacle to his plans to take over Olympus. Pain and Panic bungle their mission by not administering the whole bottle of poison, which leaves the infant with god-like strength but human mortality.

As Hercules grows up, he discovers the truth of his origins, and sets out to prove himself a true hero (with the help of veteran hero-trainer Philoctetes) so he can return to his home on Olympus. Hades tries to kill him with a variety of calamities including a multi-headed Hydra, a Minotaur, a Cyclops and an army to Titans. Along the way, Herc meets and falls in love with Megara, not knowing she is another of Hades pawns. Only after saving her from the Underworld does Hercules discover what it really is to be a hero.
