Rather by accident, the Three Stooges (Larry Fine, Moe Howard, Curly Joe De Rita) are transported back to Ancient Greece along with their inventor friend Schuyler (Quinn K.Redeker) - whose timemachine they use - and his girlfriend Diane (Vicki Trickett). There they meet evil King Odius (George N.Neise) and his bodyguard Hercules (Samson Burke), who have just driven Ulysses (John Cliff) and his men from Ithaka.

Odius immediately sets eyes on Diane, and to get the others out of the way, he sends the others off on galley-duty - as slaves.

Schuyler and the Stooges however soon start a mutiny and take over the ship, and from all that rowing, formerly scrawny Schuyler has developed quite a physique - and the Stooges decide to earn enough money to get back to Ithaka, free Diane and make it home by time machine, they present Schuyler as Hercules in a series of fights (which eventually make up most of Hercules' adventures) to a paying audience.

Of course they succeed and return to Ithaka, where Schuyler takes on and defeats the real Hercules in the arena, who then switches allegiance and - together with Ulysses and Schuyler and the Stooges - goes against King Odius.

It all ends in a chariot race-cum-piethrowing, at the end of which our heroes make it back to their own time, and they also get their revenge on their evil boss, a dead ringer for King Odius (and thus also played by George N.Neise).

 

What a wasted opportunity ! The Stooges' madness would presumably have worked well in the context of a peplum - and you have to remember, Hercules-movies were extremely popular but also a dime a dozen in the early 1960's -, but the whole film is doomed from the start by an incredibly weak script that makes little use of the Stooges' qualities (even if the trio was already past its prime) and instead goes for a cheesy main plot which presents the comedians as notorious do-gooders ... now why didn't anyone notice right at the start that this was a bad idea.

Not really worth your time, even if you're a Stooges-fan.
