Hercules is one of mythology’s most famous, and least understood heroes. This is due mostly to film adaptations that habitually deviate from Hercules’ mythological roots. TED Ed is here to set the record straight by accurately retelling Hercules’ 12 labors in 8-bits.
If you enjoyed this video by TED Ed, be sure to watch their video about the historical origins of the Amazons. And if you’re in the mood for a more modernized Hercules that doesn’t skimp on the story, I recommend the graphic novel adaptation by David Rubin.
