Baby Hercules with snakes


This is the year 2012 and we still don't have the definitive scene with a baby Hercules wrestling with snakes. Isn't this a shame? Excluding the few forgettable TV mini-series or cartoons which showed it I mean definitive, as in classic. IMO, this is one of the most iconic moments in Greek mythology and it's still hasn't been immortalized brilliantly on film.

Thank God that today's cinema hasn't tackled this, because baby Hercules would probably have a beard and a mean and nasty look on his face all caught and shown in 3D!! I remember that very forgettable TV Miniseries about Hercules and the snake scene was lousy. The whole story was cockeyed, and I hated what they did.

The miniseries was terrible. It was more medieval than Greek.
