I always feel like Disney's Hercules is a hidden gem, dazzling with the musical talent of the Muses. As a child who was interested with both Greek mythology and Disney, Hercules became a guilty pleasured cherished throughout the years.
The character of Hades emulates bold and sassiness from a villian which was very amusing and a different approach to the previous prototypical masculine bad boys. His sidekicks Pain and Panic - WE ARE WORMS - and their relationship with their boss was always hilarious to watch as they were so clueless. Hercules himselg is clueless and falls for the mere mortal Meg and I adored how stubborn Meg was. Meg felt like the most relatable woman of Disney growing up, trying to prove her independency and no need for a man - a feeling deeprooted in a lot of young women. I am glad Disney explored her character as she was not the prototypical damsel in distress. In fact, I feel that Hercules was brimming with characters who kept defying their stereotypes, even Hercules with his God-like stance but adorable clumsiness and naive ways.
