It's also becoming painfully obvious that for a hero the noble Ulysses is exceptionally good at rushing into obvious traps, and that Nono (the comic relief) is a single joke that doesn't work.
That said, the animation design work are outstanding for a cartoon from this period, and the voice acting is very good. The actual dialogue is intelligent but seems a little staid - or maybe that should read just a little too rigorously adherent to the original French :) I like to think that perhaps this series was the dying gasp of a brief, literate golden age, when kids were not patronised and cartoons were designed primarily to stimulate the imagination rather than to sell toys. Or maybe I'm just suffering an acute bout of nostalgia..
Again I've got to complain that the full episode titles are mutilated on this DVD - apparently we can blame Fox Kids for wanting to squeeze in more toy adverts. But otherwise this is a quality product and anyone who remembers it from the first time round should buy it (just try to get hold of the full title sequence too).
