Shout Factory! Young Hercules: The Complete Series ~ #Review

When I received a copy of Young Hercules on DVD I had to smile.  Who remembers young Ryan Gosling?  I forget how young and cute he was.  I recall watching a  few of these episodes when they aired on TV. Young Hercules is a goof ball and trouble always seem to follow him.  With the help of his friends and a little bit of luck he manages to save the day.  I think it is also a great DVD if I want to introduce my daughter to Greek Gods.  It always mentions Zeus, Hera, and of course Aries.  My daughter enjoyed watching this DVD.
