The Adventures of Young Hercules

The Adventures of Young Hercules Did you know that name Hercules is the Latin form of his ancient Greek name. In Greek mythology,he is the son of Zeus, king of the gods of Olympus, and Alcmena, a mortal woman who lived about three thousand years ago. Recognizing the need for a son who would be powerful enough to defend both the Olympian gods and humanity from future dangers he foresaw, Zeus seduced Alcmena in the guise of her husband, King Amphitryon of Troezen. Thanks to Zeus's enchantment, Hercules was born with the potential for extraordinary strength, which he first displayed before he was even one year old by strangling two serpents which attacked him. As an adult, Hercules is best known for his celebrated Twelve Labors, which were performed in part to prove his worthiness for immortality to Zeus. Hercules' principal power is his superhuman strength. As true immortals, the Olympian gods do not age and are not susceptible to disease. Although they can be wounded in battle, they cannot die by any conventional means, and have a rapid healing rate. Hercules has a greater resistance to physical injury than any other Olympian god except for Zeus, and possibly Neptune and Pluto. He can even survive unprotected in the vacuum of space for a brief period of time. Only an injury of such magnitude that it incinerated him or dispersed a major portion of his bodily molecules could kill Hercules. In at least some such cases, Zeus or one of the other gods might still be able to resurrect him. Hercules has highly developed leg muscles, although they do not match those of the Hulk. Hercules can make a standing high jump of at least 100 feet in Earth's gravity. He is virtually tireless. His supernaturally enhanced musculature produces no fatigue poisons.

In the famous Young Hercules TV series, storyline follows Hercules as he attends Cheiron's Academy to train in the arts of the warrior under the wise headmaster Cheiron the Centaur . He makes friends with the future king of Corinth, the prince Jason and a thieving former member of a bandit group Iolaus who was sentenced to the training academy as an alternative to prison for his crimes. Hercules also meets the academy's first female cadet, Lilith . Other characters of interest include Kora, the Inn Keeper, who unknown to Hercules and his friends, is a devotee of Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt. As the series develops, Kora is revealed to have special powers which allow her to do Artemis' bidding. There are hints of romance between Hercules and Kora, although their friendship keeps it all innocent.

In 1998, the show won the following Daytime Emmy Awards nominations for Outstanding Sound Editing and while for 2001,Writers Guild of America, USA Children's Script.

I will definitely recommend this amazing DVD for kids and their family! Have fun and enjoy this show!
