The series was made in 1981 as a co-production between the French company DIC and the Japanese company TMS (Tokyo Movie Shinsha) in collaboration with the television channels FR3 and RTL. It's based on the book 'The Odyssey' by Homer, except the setting is changed from ancient Greece to the 31st century.
Jean Chalopin wrote and produced the series, and came up with the
original idea together with Nina Wolmark. The music was composed
and arranged by Denny Crokett and Ike Egan at Osmond Studio. Most
of the animation work was done by Japanese animaters, but not
in the traditional Japanese manga style. 'Ulysses 31' had a
unique look that in my view has never been outdone or equaled
by any later animated sci-fi show.
