Unterwegs mit Odysseus (Travelling with Odysseus) was a live-action, youth-oriented documentary TV series that followed ship captain, director and cartoonist Tony Munzlinger and his family on a sea voyage (on a boat called the ‘Odyssey’) as they re-traced the path of the hero from Troy to Ithaca. The live-action travel scenes were interspersed with hand-drawn animated segments by Munzlinger that retold the stories from Homer’s Odyssey in rhyme.
