How does the cartoon movie Hercules illustrate the typical Greek myth?
It doesn't. It doesn't even come close to the real story of Hercales. Hollywood doesn't do mythology very well.

Hercules is in Greek and Roman myths. He is a demigod and the son of Zeus.
It is a myth- it had been passed down through generations. There is no specific person who wrote the myth- it's like saying, "Who came up with all the stories in the Bible?" C…hristians believe that they were real- not made up. Same with the Greeks. They believe it was truth, not a written story. Actually, Hercules is a Roman Hero/God.
some would say persistence. Some would say that you need to be comfortable in your own skin. For me, Hercules was a dime-god that showed us the importance of never giving up o…n your dreams
When Hercules was trying to take his bride Deianeira home, he had to cross the Evenus River. Nessus, a centaur, served as ferryman. First he rowed Hercules across and then, as… he started to row Deianeira across, he tried to rape her. Hercules, justly enraged, drew one of his poisoned arrows and shot the centaur. Before he died, the centaur persuaded Deinaeira to take some of his blood to use as a love potion should Hercules ever cause her to worry. This was a lie and the poison taken from a Hydra killed him
I don"t know about the Disney movie- but the old cartoon Hercules- produced by one of the smaller cartoon houses, had three main Characters, Hercules, Hera- who was his wife- …and a very attractive blonde, and their child- or pet- a centaur like creature who seemed to be about the size of a large Dog, had dog-like side tresses on his body, looked a little like a Calf, and went by the name of Newton. Newton was male but was voiced to sound like a Girl. It was really strange. Newton was a sort of bovine centaur, it was never discussed how he came to be. No such character exists in Greek Mythology aside from maybe the Fauns who may have been deer-like.
Hercules was in several Greek myths. He was the son of Zeus.

You can do anything if you really want to.
Apollo is the Greek and Roman God of the sun, music, prophesy, and medicine. He is one of the few gods whose name is the same in both Greek and Roman Mythologies.
The Hercules for myth is more violent than in the movies Ofcorse because it's a kids movie!

From my reading it appears that he may be legend. Hercules was his Roman name and Heracles his Greek name. He was the son of Zeus and Alcema. Alcema was the wife of Amphitryon…. He grew up in Thebes as the son of Amphitryon
