Storyline

Cartoon series. It is the 31st Century and Ulysses is a famous explorer and pilot in space but he desires to go home to Earth to his wife. He takes his son Telemachus and Telemachus's new robot gift Nono with him and takes the space-ship Odyssey with computer Shyrka and his crew. En route to Earth Telemachus is kidnapped and is taken to the Cyclops, a huge robot with one eye and is worshiped by a cult. Ulysses destroys the Cyclops and as well as rescuing Telemachus takes Numenor and Yumi, two children from the planet Zotra with them. However this enrages the ancient gods of Olympus, still existing after all this time, and in revenge, puts the crew and Numenor into a deep sleep, wipe the location of Earth from Shyrka's memory, and put the Odyssey in the universe of Olympus. The only way out is for Ulysses to find the "Kingdom Of Hades", but Ulysses, Telemachus, Yumi, Nono and Shyrka have to defend against the Trident - the forces of the gods and the dubious community of the Universe in...

Trivia

At the time it was broadcasted in France, each broadcast of the whole series needed a new introductory music. This is why there are two different musics for the series. The first one is the plain "Ulysse 31" song, and the next one is "Ulysse revient" (aka Ulyses comes back) song. See more »

Quotes

Nestor: Go on! Escape! We will cover you!
Ulysses: Nestor! Companions! No, stop! Without the light of the Cyclops they are quite harmless!

One of the finest cartoons ever from France
3 June 2002 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

But, well, France is known for its interesting artistic production. Ulysse 31 offered a very interesting futuristic take on Homer's Odyssey and was immensely successful and utterly enjoyable.

They did some excellent work.
