"Ulysses, Ulysses, soaring through all the galaxies, in search of Earth, flying into the night! Ulysses, Ulysses, fighting evil and tyranny with all his heart and with all of his might!

Ulysseee-eee-eees, no-one else can do the things you do! Ulysseee-eee-eees, like a bolt of thunder from the blue! Ulysseee-eee-eees, always fighting all the evil forces, bringing peace and justice to all!"

This fantastic Japanese-French co-production was first broadcast in the 80's, on Channel 4. The series is a modern retelling of Homer's 'The Odyssey', set in the 31st century.

Fresh from the battle of Troy, Ulysses journies home to reunite with his wife, Penelope. En route, his son Telemechus is snatched by a mysterious vapour cloud and transported to the White Planet; there, children are sacrificed by the natives to their lord, the Cyclops. Whilst rescuing Telemachus, the Cyclops is destroyed, thus incurring the wrath of Poseidon, the monster's creator.

Zeus - the lord of the Gods - banishes Ulysses to the universe of Olympus, and sends his companions into a deep sleep. Only once he has found the Kingdom of Hades, can he free his crew and return to Earth to be reunited with Penelope once more.

This box set features all the episodes ever made:

1. Vengeance of the Gods
2. The Lost Planet
3. The Black Sphere
4. Guardian of the Cosmic Winds
5. The Eternal Punishment
6. Flowers of Fear
7. Mutiny on Board
8. Secret of the Sphinx
9. Cronus, Father of Time
10. Temple of the Lestrigones
11. The Seat of Forgetfulness
12. Trapped Between Fire and Ice
13. Phantoms from the Swamp
14. Song of Danger
15. Before the Flood
16. The Magic Spells of Circe
17. Lost in the Labyrinth
18. At the Heart of the Universe
19. The Hidden Truth
20. The Magician in Black
21. Rebellion on Lemnos
22. The City of Cortex
23. Calypso
24. Strange Meeting
25. The Lotus Eaters
26. The Kingdom of Hades

I paid about £15 for mine a while back, love the music and stories.

They could of done a better job on restoring the picture quality though.

Also as a kid I thought that there were millions of episodes and it was never ending. I would ask if they ever found home, but I'm sure that would ruin the plot for everyone.

worth it for the theme tune alone

This was one of my fave cartoons when i was a young un, when i watch it back it looks a little dated but still takes me back to happy days. I thought they would have made a movie of this by now. Kurt Russell as Ulysses ? :-D

No way, it's Kris Kristofferson all the way.

I remember Philip Schofield promising a new series in the new year - since then his hair and mine has gone grey waiting for it. Pah!

Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors vol1 (contains about half the series) is available on Amazon.com for about $30. Vol2 containing the rest of the episodes & is for pre-order for $7.

Haven't seen a UK release, but there might be one in the works as I've just spotted Mask, Pole Position & the old 80's Hulk, Spider-Woman & Spiderman & his Amazing Friends on Amazon UK. I used to love these as a kid!

Edit: Reading the description Jayce vol2 preorder, it looks like it's just a single disc release from a different company. The proper vol2 with the remaining episodes probably not until later in the year.

Good price, wonder if MCoG has dropped in price.

Probably won't drop in price for a while. HMV had a 'timed' exclusivity release from Mar08. It doesn't go on general release in Amazon, Play & other retailers until 23rd June.

I wouldn't normally buy something like this for full price as I know it's gonna drop in a few months, but I've actually pre-ordered one from Play.com as it has an exclusive soundtrack CD with it.

Wish there was a soundtrack of Ulysses available...there's some really nice Daft Punk-esque tunes in it
#16
I'm surprised there's so few episode, it seemed to go on forever as a kid.

just need chorlton and the wheelies and starfleet and i can die a happy man

mmm, you have a point, certainly in the looks department, but for an action star, Kurts gotta be the man !

Kris is a bit old now, although he would have been brilliant.

It's nice to see some other ulysses fans out there :-)

Dungeons and Dragons anyone? £14.99

Brilliant find! Heat added. £149 for Battle of the Planets there though- does anyone know anywhere I can get that cheaper? SMT
