Additional Info

Climb aboard the mighty ship Argo to join heroic Prince Jason, plucky Princess Medea, Hercules and all the gang for a lively re-telling of the greatest adventure story ever told! Our Heroes must overcome monsters, tricksters and tempests if they are to capture the mythical Golden Fleece they need to defeat Jason's evil uncle and win back the kingdom.

Humour and easy puppetry overcome the difficulties of a fire-breathing bull, a dragon and an army of skeletons!
