Hercules: The Animated Series is a 1998 cartoon television series based on the 1997 theatrical animated movie Hercules, this series was produced by Walt Disney Television Animation that premiered on in syndication on August 31, 1998 and on ABC during the Disney's One Saturday Morning programming block on September 12, 1998.
The series follows Hercules, as a teenager, training as a hero as well as trying to adjust to life. With his free-spirited friend Icarus, his future-seeing friend Cassandra and his teacher Philoctetes, he battles his evil uncle Hades.
Like all teenagers though, Hercules has to worry about peer pressure when the snobbish prince Adonis ridicules him. The series notably contradicts several events in the original film and is not considered tapestry.
