* AnachronismStew: The film has elements that definitely werent around in the time of Greek Mythology, including Gospel style music, using sundials as watches, and merchandise like action figures and soda cups, but they're often played for laughs. Also, when Herc arrives in Phil's house, the Argo's mast is there... while in the myth, Hercules was one of the Argonauts.[[note]] the animated series would retroactively HandWave this: Jason didn't find the Golden Fleece the first time around, so Hercules joins him in another attempt[[/note]]

''Hercules'' is entry #35 of the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, released in 1997. Being a lighthearted musical comedy that serves as a change of pace after Disney attempting [[Disney/TheLionKing three]] [[Disney/{{Pocahontas}} epic]] [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame features]], this film is a ''very'' loose adaptation of the myth of Heracles, being to Greek Mythology what Disney/{{Aladdin}} was to the Literature/ArabianNights.

Added DiffLines:

** Pegasus was never in the original Heracles myth. Hes a CanonImmigrant from another part of Greek Mythology brought in simply to give Herc a quicker means of travel, and a comedic animal sidekick as a bonus.

** As a baby, Hercules saves his adoptive parents from Pain and Panic when they turn into snakes, strangling both of them. In the Greek Myths, two (ordinary) snakes actually did attack Hercules as a baby, and he strangled both of them to death.



* SadlyMythtaken: Frequent but, given the nods, it seems like the writers ARE familiar with Greek Mythology and merely dealing with PragmaticAdaptation, necessary due to the film having to be acceptable to kids.

They do sneak in a lot of literal MythologyGags to counterbalance it though.

* TheThemeParkVersion: Hoo boy, let's just say that Disney really played fast and loose with the original Greek Myths when making this film--It would be far easier to list the things they got accurate. It's best to watch the film with a heavy dose of MST3KMantra, especially if you're a man of Greek Mythology or a resident of Greece.
