A direct-to-video follow-up on the popular Disney animated spectacular, this release focuses on Hercules' awkward schoolboy days in three fun-filled adventures. In "Hercules and the First Day of School," Zeus has his son given a classical education. In addition to struggling through trigonometry (taught by Euclid), our pubescent demi-god also has to contend with the snooty Adonis. Yet when a nefarious Cyclops attacks his school looking for a tasty hero to eat, Hercules saves the day. In "Hercules and the Grim Avenger," our hero battles with Theseus against a foul-smelling Minotaur. In spite of his efforts, Hercules fails to win any respect from the self-centered Adonis. And finally, in "Hercules and the Visit from Zeus," Zeus turns himself into a gangly adolescent in order to prove that teendom is a snap. While Zeus is getting creamed in dodgeball, Hades plots to rub out the temporarily mortal king of the gods.
