Hercules is one of the most underrated films from the Disney Renaissance years. The combination of (slightly inaccurate) Greek mythology with gospel music is straight-up wacky, but effective, garnering a legion of fans across all age groups. Like most Disney movies, they're made for younger audiences, but every once in a while writers and animators will slip in gags that only parents and grown-ups can catch after watching a film on loop for weeks, if not months on end (thank you Disney+).
This list takes a look at some of the brilliant lines and moments from Hercules that were clearly added just for adult audiences. Take a look down below and be sure to vote up the lines that would have gone over your head as a kid!
