* DuelingShows: Came about just as TV show version of Disney's WesternAnimation/{{Hercules}} was airing as well.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Creator/RyanGosling.
* IronyAsSheIsCast: Ryan Gosling is a famously skinny guy, playing one of the great strongmen of legend.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Unlike its parent series or ''[[Series/XenaWarriorPrincess Xena]]'', ''Young Hercules'' has never been formally released on DVD. The best you can do is the pilot movie.
** The series is on Hulu, though, in its entirety.
* TheOtherDarrin: Ian Boen played Young Herc in the pilot movie and on ''HTLJ''. As Boen opted not to continue, Ryan Gosling took over for the series.
** There was also Sharon Tyrell, who played Herc's mother, Alcmene, in the series. In the pilot movie, she was played by Rachel Blakely. In ''HTLJ'', Alcmene as a young woman was played by Kim Michalis.
