Hercules IV: Cerberus Picture

The final task Hercules had to complete for King Eurystheus: capture Cerberus, guardian of the Underworld. After going through numerous obstacles, Hercules asked Hades for permission to borrow the dog. Hades agreed, but only if Herc bested the hound in combat. He succeeded, took the dog to the king and was released from his eight-year punishment at last.

Fun fact: Cerberus was the brother of the Hydra and the uncle of the Nemean Lion! (kinda awkward since Hercules killed them both...)
