HA! I know the reference, not because I'm a geek, but because it was used as an example of what not to do in our high school animation class.

Karma to you for getting the reference. An obscure show, but it somehow became a staple of children's programming for some Canadian stations in the 70s and early 80s. For those who don't know it, the show was basically Hercules as Popeye. His normal strength is really high, but never enough to fight the monster. So, he goes to Earth, gets his butt kicked for most of the cartoon, then puts on the magic ring (spinach anyone?) and beats the living crap out of the monster in a few seconds. Even as I little kid, I was asking why he didn't just wear the ring in the first place. He didn't even keep it in a safe place, just tucked it under his belt.

Ugh! "No Thanks" for the Memories!

But *karma* for you guys - because I know you've suffered.

There was a second sidekick: a smaller two-legged centaur (looking back; was it a satyr?!?) that could only communicate with his Pan Pipes (OK, it was Baby Pan?). The main villain wore a dark hood so they wouldn't have to waste time and money to animate his mouth. They only had about four cels of that villain, and they used them over and over.

One of our local stations ran those rancid Hercules cartoons along with the equally terrible 'Sinbad the Sailor' cartoons from A.I.P. They had basically the same premise, except Sinbad tightened his belt (?!?) to activate his super powers and had "Salty the Parrot" as his sidekick. The animation was just as bad as the Hercules ones. The theme, set to the tune of "Sailing, Sailing Over the Bounding Main" sometimes had a jazzy beat, sometimes it was a generic sea chanty arrangement.

For what it's worth, I still remember part of the Hercules theme, sung by a soulful, wimpy-sounding guy:

Only the evil fear him!
People are safe when near him!

(Here the ol' memory gets a bit murky)
Softness in his eyes
Iron in his (uh) thighs (?)
With the strength of ten
Ordinary men!
It's The Mighty Hercules!
Da da da da daaah!

As that centaur boy used to say: "YIIIIIII!"
