HERCULES before HERCULES: Popeye Meets Hercules


Before HERCULES (1958) starring Steve Reeves the presence of the legendary Greek demi-God at the movies was almost non-existant. This POPEYE cartoon is one of the few examples of Hercules before HERCULES.

That's a great cartoon. There's also "Greek Mirthology" (1954), where Popeye IS Hercules.

Why are cartoons from the past so much fun to watch? There's nothing like this today. Thanks for the tip! I'll post that one as well one day.
