Thanks for sharing with us that "Hercules" premise you wrote. I can see why it didn't get made; I can imagine someone in the Disney administration being a bit nervous about Biblical characters (the originals, rather than namesakes) - if from the Old Testament and not directly religious ones - though I recall an episode of "Pinky and the Brain" which also featured Samson and Delilah (complete with the "jawbone of an ass" incident). I got a smile at the original Goliath showing up in the story, too (a bit early from the point of view of Biblical chronology, but then, given that the "Hercules" animated series often had people from Greek mythology and classical Greece, such as Pericles and Herodotus, as contemporaries....).
