The stories of both films revolve around the hero Jason, rightful heir to the throne of Iolcus (Thessaly, in the 60s film), whose throne was usurped from his father by EvilUncle Pelias. Pelias offers to give Jason the throne if he sails to the end of the world to claim the Golden Fleece, something which many have tried but failed. Jason gathers a BadassCrew including [[WorldsStrongestMan Hercules]] and other Greek heroes, and sets sail aboard the ship ''Argo''. Together, the Argonauts encounter all sorts of adventures along the way. Jason's love interest in the both films is Medea, a temple dancer in the 60s film and a sorceress in the Hallmark version, and the gods Zeus and Hera play roles in the story as well.

* IsleOfGiantHorrors: The Isle of Bronze is inhabited by giant bronze statues that would [[LivingStatue come to life]] if anyone trespasses in the tombs they were guarding. Hercules ends up awakening Talos who nearly kills the Argonauts.

Hercules inadvertently ends up awakening the LivingStatue of Talos [[NiceJobBreakingItHero when he steals from the crypt he was guarding]], who nearly kills the Argonauts. Though the Argonauts manage to defeat Talos, [[LaserGuidedKarma Hercules' best friend Hylas was killed during the battle]].

* MightyGlacier: Talos is invincibly big, strong, and tough, but doesn't move very fast.

* MightyGlacier: Talos is invincibly big, strong, and tough, but doesn't move very fast. It doesn't make him ''any'' less dangerous.

* TakeAThirdOption: Jason's solution to the skeletons. He can't kill them, and certainly doesn't want them to kill him, so he [[spoiler:jumps off a cliff into the sea. They mindlessly follow and sink straight to the bottom.]]

Added DiffLines:

* LightningBruiser: Hercules is suggested to be this. Jason doesn't even bother auditioning him the way he does everyone else, because he knows there is ''nothing'' Hercules couldn't do better than anyone else.
* MightyGlacier: Talos is invincibly big, strong, and tough, but doesn't move very fast.

* ADeathInTheLimelight: Euphemus looks like he's going to get an Awesome Moment - only to drown trying to catch Acastus.



* TheMole: Acastus, sent by Pelias to kill Jason when he looks like getting the Golden Fleece. Jason twigs to his purpose just before they reach Colchis, but Acastus escapes and warns Aeëtes about the visitors. (And then tries to steal the Fleece for himself, which gets him killed by the Hydra.)
