** The part where Herc's foster parents find him up to when he talks with Zeus for the first time would make for a pretty good "''[[Film/{{Superman}} Superman: The Movie]]''[=/=]''Series/{{Smallville}}'' in Ancient Greece" musical. ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'' writer Creator/GrantMorrison even considers Hercules to be the best Superman movie.

** The part where Herc's foster parents find him up to when he talks with Zeus for the first time would make for a pretty good is much more like "''[[Film/{{Superman}} Superman: The Movie]]''[=/=]''Series/{{Smallville}}'' in Ancient Greece" musical.than the myths. And Hercules [[spoiler:temporarily]] gives up his superhuman abilities, as in ''Film/SupermanII''. ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'' writer Creator/GrantMorrison even considers Hercules to be the best Superman movie.

** From "Hercules and the Big Show", Helen's song all about how much she admires Hercules for his determination despite his marked lack of grace.

* WTHCastingAgency: For both Mexican and Latin American viewers, Ricky Martin as the titular Hercules, due to his thick Puerto Rican accent. While the rest of the voice cast was voiced by Mexican voice actors, Ricky Martin's voice really sticks like a sore thumb in the cast. For a better equivalent for English speakers, try to imagine Hercules being voiced by ''Music/BobMarley'', if he was being alive at the time of the film.[[note]]This was Disney's ''first'' attempt at using famous artists to voice characters for the LA audience, so you can say they goofed up. Ricky Martin was very famous overall (tough not yet internationally to English audiences) and he was signed to sing the movie's theme song for Herc. It was odd, but he did a rather good job, accent and all. It was the FIRST time it was blatant, previous Disney movies like ''The Jungle Book'' did use famous Mexican movie actors for the dub in Latin America (Baloo is voiced by comedian Tin-Tan and is fondly remembered to this day, he repeated in ''The Aristocats'', and also voiced Little John in ''Disney/RobinHood'').[[/note]]

* BrokenBase: Its either considered a legitimately funny, feel-good musical that serves as a refreshingly light change of pace for Disney films, or a sign of Disney entering a [[DorkAge creative rut]] by trying to replicate the success of ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' by [[DisneyFication heavily Disneyfying]] Greek Mythology.

* AccidentalAesop: Hercules regularly risks life and limb to save total strangers, gets quite famous for it, and is denied a spot on Mt. Olympus because ""being famous doesn't make you a true hero." Sacrificing himself to save a single person whom he's in love with, however, is enough to seal the deal. Neither of these actions were purely selfless, so the moral ends up reading something like "good deeds are negated if you reap lots of attention and money for them" with a side of "love stories count for more."
