The Mighty Hercules is a cartoon based rather loosely on the legendary greek hero Hercules.
Hercules comes down from Mount Olympus to battle monsters and villains like the wizard Daedalus, Wilhamene the Sea Witch and the Mask of Vulcan. Because on Earth his godly strength would vanish, Hercules must don a magic ring to maintain his power.
At his side are the beautiful Helena, Newton the centaur, Toot the satyr and young King Dorian of the kingdom of Caladon.
This series is best remembered by Johnny Nash's Bragging Theme Tune.
The series has examples of:
- Beard of Evil: Daedalus.
- Distressed Damsel: Helena.
- Once an Episode: After Hercules accomplishes his heroic deed, he flies off shouting "Olympi - aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!"
- Hercules' donning his ring to retain his god-like strentgh also qualifies.
- Right-Hand-Cat: Daedalus' own cat, Dydo.
- Showy Invincible Hero
- Tagalong Kid: Newton. Toot also qualifies.
- Verbal Tic: Newton tends to say anything twice.
