This French cartoon series is a wonderful modern take on the ancient Greek legends about Ulysses.
Having rescued his children from being a sacrifice to the Gods of Mount Olympus, the futuristic Ulysses, sees the crew of his space ship frozen and his ship cast off into deep space at the mercy of the Gods. What follows is a series of adventures, based on the legends, that Ulysses, his children, and one of comic my hero's, NoNo have to pass in order to reach the Kingdom of Hades and the way back to earth.
A wonderful series to introduce todays young children to the lessons of the Greek legends, as it did me ten years ago.
