Hercules Easter Egg - Sam Raimi Chant

I am not sure how this goes...
In one of the episodes, Hercules has to chant "Clato Varita Nicto"
That chant is from Sam Reimi's Army of Darkness. Sam Reimi is the Producer of Hercules and sometimes directs them.

That's Klaatu Barada Nikto It is a passphrase used in The Day The Earth Stood Still to stop Gort from destroying the earth, and (possibly incidentally) go rescue Klaatu. It therefore either means: Klaatu orders you to stop or Klaatu is in danger Thank you. :)

This si sort of a side note, but in the 1982 movie "Tron," the cubicle of Alan Bradley, the programmer who created Tron, has the words Gort: Klaatu Barada Nicto emblazoned in a poster on its wall.

Actually the saying is originally from an the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still, which Raimi then used in Army of Darkness.

That's "Klaatu Borata Niktu". And it is ultimately a line from a classic SF movie, "The Day The Earth Stood Still". Check the Easter Egg Archives, Movies, under listings for "Army of Darkness".

"Klatu, barada nikto" is arguably the most venerable -- and venerated -- phrase in science fiction/genere literature. In the original Star Wars movie (episode IV) three of the characters from the Cantina scene are named Klatu Barada and Nikto. If I'm not mistaken, their identities were not "revealed" until the first Star Wars action figures came out .... spotting the names on the packages nearly knocked me down right in the middle of the toy isle!

Wow. This is on Jimmy Neutron twice, and probably every other TV show in the entire world. LOL.

I remember seeing 'The Day The Earth Stood Still' when it first came out - it's hooked me on sci-fi ever since. BUT - what does "Klaatu Borata Nictu" mean? - I'm probably a dummy -I expect everyone in the entire rest of the world knows the meaning - apart from me.
