The Sons of Hercules

The Sons of Hercules was a syndicated television show that aired in the United States of America in the 1970s. The series mostly repackaged Italian Maciste films by giving them a memorable theme song[?] and a standard intro relating them to the Sons of Hercules. Since Maciste was not recognised as a character in the USA, he was usually renamed as Goliath, Ursus[?], Colossus or some other name.

The lyrics to the theme song go:

The Mighty Sons of Hercules
Once thundered through the years;
These men of steel could never feel
The curse of a coward's fears!

The Mighty Sons of Hercules
Were men as men should be;
They burned with dreams, and turned their dreams
Into history!

A hundred giants, brave and bold,
They ruled the earth in days of old.
