This classic cartoon first seen in 1981 is based on Greek and Roman mythology. It follows the adventures of Ulysses, his son Telemachus, Yumi and their little robot No-No. There were only 28 episodes altogether.
It all begins when Ulysses and his crew set out on the ship, the Odyssey and head out to space.
In the first episode, the crew encounter the giant cyclops, which Ulysses ends up destroying. This in turn angers the Gods who punish him by making all of his crew as lifeless as stone. They also erase the way back to Earth from the Odyssey's memory. This sets up the series, where each episode, Ulysses encounters enemies and sometimes allies. Definately worth buying on DVD and will forever remain one of the best anime cartoons of the 80's. Get in now.
