The Mighty Hercules
I knew it word-for-word, of course. I sat gape-jawed in front of the TV for hours, it seems, and remembered it all. That can't be true, of course, because I also remember spending hours reading, and spending hours playing touch football and Chinese Tackle.
There was a closing verse at the end of each episode, which I can't find.
Join us there with pride
Standing at his side
Victory is here
Raise a mighty cheer
At the sight of Hercules.
The singer is Johnny Nash, who later sang "I Can See Clearly Now." I never knew that connection until now. I also didn't know that the Trans-Lux which did the cartoons is the same company that does the fancy scoreboards now. It's been going for almost a hundred years.
