Hercules and the Falling Stars is an episode of Hercules: The Animated Series. It aired on November 10, 1998.


Hercules, needing help with archery, calls on the greatest hunter who ever lived, Orion, releasing him from his constellation. Orion is not accustomed to the more calm way people live, earning Hercules' respect but Phil's and everyone else's anger, as he gives constant disregard to his environment. Hercules' tearing the sky left a hole for the Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, and Aries constellations to escape. Artemis, discovering the big dipper, realizes who is responsible, and sets out to find Orion, who is defeating the monsters with Hercules, destroying Corinth, Sparta, Thessaly, Abacus Valley, and Athens in the process. Artemis finally catches up to the duo, revealing that Orion is her ex-boyfriend, and forces them to rebuild the cities. Orion returns to his place in the sky, suggesting that Hercules may one day have a constellation of his own.


  • When Hercules releases Orion from his constellation, Orion shouts: "Freedom!"; a reference to William Wallace's last line from Braveheart.
