Mission Odyssey


Status: Completed


Starting with the victory over Troy, Odysseus’ voyage home turns into a true adventure. The sea god Poseidon has made a bet with Athena that Odysseus and his team, consisting of the horned mythical creatures Titan, Zephyr, the son of a god of wind, teenage barefoot clairvoyant Nisa, clumsy Philo, rapacious Navigator Dates as well as Diomedes and a clever owl, will never make it home on their own. To achieve this Poseidon interferes in every episode of the series, with Athena constantly reminding Poseidon that direct intervention violates their betting rules. The series covers the most important stages of Homer’s Odyssey but is simplified and re-worked in a child-friendly manner. Occasionally parts of other Greek legends are used.
