** Rob Tapert really disliked "The Cave Of Echoes" from Season 2. He didn't mind having to do a ClipShow, but he cited this as being a particularly weak example due to how cheap it looked. Later clip shows on both shows had more inventive framing devices as a result of his dissatisfaction with this episode.



* MissingEpisode: By the fifth season, the Sci-Fi Channel acquired the rerun rights... but not for the soon-to-be produced, eight episode long Season 6. Reruns continued well after the GrandFinale premiered, but Sci-Fi never aired those last eight episodes. (Fortunately for fans, Season 6 was released on DVD.)

to:

* EditedForSyndication: For a couple years, the show was rerun in a late-night slot on the Hub Network (now Creator/DiscoveryFamily). The network aired a TV-PG disclaimer about moderate violence. For the most part, episodes were generally shown as they were on the Sci-Fi Channel, with only minor edits in a handful of them (such as the leg breaking scene in "Armageddon Now, Part 2" and some sexual content in "Stranger And Stranger").

** "Porkules" has this exchange after Herc's turned into a pig and encounters Katherine (voiced by Alexandra Tydings).
--->'''Hercules:''' I'm Hercules.\\
'''Katherine:''' [[SarcasmMode Yeah, and I'm Aphrodite.]]



* CreatorsFavoriteEpisode: Kevin Sorbo dubbed "Mercenary" as his favorite.



* RealitySubtext[=/=]WrittenInInfirmity: "Yes, Virginia, There Is A Hercules", a clip show in which the staff of HTLJ try to work out what to do after Kevin Sorbo goes missing, was written when Sorbo fell seriously ill and couldn't film.

Many of the suggested ideas (using Young Hercules, trapping Herc with the Sovereign) were done in the actual episodes.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** If there's Creator/SamRaimi, Creator/BruceCampbell is close by.
** And speaking of Sam, Ted Raimi is Joxer.
** Echidna is portrayed by Creator/BridgetHoffman. Anime fans would know her from a number of roles, including [[Anime/SerialExperimentsLain Lain]].

* ThrowItIn: During script readings, the writers and producers were very open to suggestions from Kevin Sorbo, Michael Hurst and main guest actors. This extended to during filming, such as the [[TheSoundOfMusic "Doe, a deer, a female deer"]] exchange in "Encounter."

* ActorAllusion: "...And Fancy Free" features an exchange that doubles as a reference to [[LoisAndClark a role]] that Kevin Sorbo tried out for.

* StarMakingRole: For Kevin Sorbo and, peripherally, [[XenaWarriorPrincess Lucy Lawless]].
* TakeThat: The tagline for the ''Battle for Mount Olympus'' AnimatedAdaptation brags that it includes "the REAL Hercules", a likely dig at [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Disney's own cartoon version]] that was released less than a year prior.

* WrittenInInfirmity:
** Early into the fourth season, Kevin Sorbo suffered some health issues. To accommodate him, the writers put more focus on Iolaus, produced "Men In Pink" (an Autolycus/Salmoneus episode), utilized Autolycus more and produced three additional Young Hercules episodes. Sorbo actually appeared in all but "Men In Pink" during this period, but his screentime was reduced from its usual length - only increasing the more he recovered.
** During a CrossOver with ''Xena'', Michael Hurst broke his arm while filming a fight scene. Iolaus' arm was subsequently injured in "Cast A Giant Shadow" and was seen in a cast for a couple episodes.

** [[WeirdScience Vanessa Angel]] was originally cast as Xena, but she got sick and was unable to fly out for filming. Melinda Clarke (who would play Velasca on the spin-off) was also in the running at one point.
