Clash of the Titans (1981) -- Bubo

Bubo is a mechanical owl of brass & iron who was sent by the Gods of Olympus to aid Perseus on his quest in "Clash of the Titans".

HistoryEdit

When Zeus saw that Perseus is going to the Shrine of the Stygian Witches, he needed to send something down to aid him on his quest. He asked Athena to send her pet owl to aid Perseus as a replacement for his ill-fated Invisibility Helmet. Athena refuses, but then relies on Hephaestus to build a mechanical version of her owl. Bubo the brass-and-iron owl is then sent to Earth, but when he perches on an old dead tree branch, he falls to the ground, but he's okay. Perseus talks to Bubo, and in return helps him on his Quest to the Stygian Witches
