Episode List has duplicates and possibly other issues[edit]

Episode 4 and 29 are listed as having the same title ("Hercules and the Magic Arrows"), so it would appear either one needs to be changed or shouldn't be there at all. IMDB lists the title for the latter episode as "Hercules and the Silver Arrows" so it's possible it might simply need to be changed to that, with the former episode left intact, but the problem with that theory is that IMDB doesn't list the former episode at all, resulting in the episode number for all subsequent episodes (including the latter) being one less.

Other examples of seeming duplicates are episode 14, "Medusa's Scepter", and episode 32, "Medusa's Sceptre", along with episode 80, "The Sea Witch", and episode 92, "Hercules and the Sea Witch". Once again, IMDB doesn't list the latter.

Other sites such as and don't seem to provide any help here, if anything only adding further differences of their own. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:22, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Generally accurate[edit]

Messy Thinking (talk) 22:30, 21 August 2009 (UTC) This description of IMDB, stemming from the dispute over which Johnny Nash performed the theme, strikes me as lacking some neutrality.

Canadian TV[edit]

This show probably remains familiar to people, especially Canadians, because it ran almost continually for decades after its first run, on Global. There was an attempt by YTV to re-air the series during the mid-'90s, but I don't think it lasted very long. (talk) 02:08, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Run time[edit]

I corrected the run time in the infobox as the episodes are only 5 minutes long (complete with individual opening and closing credits), but when broadcast they usually take 3 or 4 of these minisodes and combine them to fill a half-hour time slot after commercials. But I recall a Canadian broadcaster used to air them by themselves as filler too. (talk) 04:47, 12 February 2013 (UTC)
