Griechische Sagen: Perseus (also known as simply Perseus) is Dingo Pictures' first fully-animated feature and possibly their first ever work, released in 1992 as part of a VHS titled Drachengeschichten, along with Die Nibelungen Sage: Siegfried, both of which were collaborations with LUI.TV.
"Perseus won't bring you luck, Acrisius", oracles the seer Talos at the birth of Perseus, the son of the father of the god Zeus. And that doesn't happen. Acrisius sends his grandson out to sea. But Zeus protects his son and Perseus is saved.
Will Zeus help him too? Can Perseus make his way to Medusa with the dreadful snake head? Or will Andromeda be freed from the shark? And what does the oracle say?
All of this and more you'll find out in the exciting and entertaining cartoon from the world of Greek tales.

- This is among Dingo Pictures' very few movies to be consistently, fluidly animated. Notably, being one of their earliest releases (the earliest in some lists) this constrasts strongly against posterior films, which are infamous for their extremely poor quality in terms of animation.
