Ulysses 31 the Final Episode...

A cracking cartoon show that mixed the grandeur of Greek Myth with the sci-fi adventure of Buck Rodgers and Flash Gordon. Produced by DiC Entertainment (in conjunction with Tokyo Movie Shinsha) 26 episodes were made and unlike many cartoon series followed a linear narrative which ended with a defanite conclusion.
It's also a nice touch that Homer (who's epic poem the series uses as it's basis) is credited as 'writer' on it's IMDB entry.




When I watched this as a youngster it was on BBC 1 as part of it's afternoon childrens programing were the theme tune took on cult status championed by then presenter Phillip Schofeild.....



And because it is quite clearly one of the greats here is the full version of the Ulysses 31 theme tune.... YASSS!....
