Hercules and the Trojan War is an episode of Hercules: The Animated Series that first aired on October 20, 1998.


The Trojan War is retold in the form of a high school rivalry between the students of Prometheus Academy and their Trojan rivals. When a mindless prank gets out of hand and Helen, the Homecoming Queen, is kidnapped, the whole group decides to rescue her from Paris by sneaking into the Trojan school in a wooden horse, courtesy of wacky inventor Icarus. Fortunately, with the power of steam, Icarus is able to get it up and running to about four miles an hour. Unfortunately, he fails to remember brakes, causing damage to the school and bringing about Helen's rescue. In the end, it is shown that Helen was not captured, but merely went to discuss the problem. After hearing this, Homer, who was listening to the whole thing, decides to make the story juicier by turning the story into a war, therefore making it the Trojan War we know today.
