Hercules and the River Styx is the 6th episode of Hercules: The Animated Series. It aired on September 7, 1998.


Hercules, after failing several times in Shop Class with Icarus' father, Daedalus, becomes fed up and quits, calling it useless and thus insulting Icarus. Meanwhile, Hades forms an alliance with his brother Poseidon to move the River Styx (the edge of Hades' domain) to include Greece. All the heroes are punished by Hades with what they hate most - for Hercules, Shop Class. Now, with Hades ruling Greece, the Underworld and the Seas, Hercules must take back his comments about Shop and use Daedalus' teachings to stop Hades.
