Note: This synopsis came from the old Disney website in April 1997.
Hercules, the son of Zeus, was robbed of his divine birthright when the evil Hades stole him from his cradle and fed him a potion that made him mortal. Armed with only his great strength and his trusty flying horse, Hercules must prove himself a true hero to regain his rightful place among the gods on Mount Olympus.
His adventures read like a collection of mythology's greatest hits -- wrestling ravenous serpents, blinding the dreaded Cyclops, and beheading (and beheading and beheading and beheading) the multi-headed Hydra. Even the cynical citizens of disaster-prone Thebes hail him as a superstar!
But around every corner lurks Hades, a villain with more angles than Isosceles. He knows even Hercules has an Achilles's heel -- his love for the bewitching Meg.
