Storyboard Text

  • It is said that everyday, Helios pulled the sun across the sky in his golden chariot.
  • His friends knew that his father was important but they avoided Phaethon because all he ever did was brag.
  • His son, Phaethon, bragged about his father's duty to his friends, and he said that he would one day carry on that duty himself.
  • However, Helios did not want Phaethon to drive the chariot in fear that he would mess up.
  • When Helios let Phaethon use the chariot, he flew too low and made forests into deserts.
  • Thinking it was a sleeping Helios, Zeus threw a lightning bolt at the chariot in an effort to wake him up. Instead of this, Phaethon fell out of the chariot and Zeus had to drive the chariot himself.
  • Phaethon was lost forever, and Zeus assigned Apollo to drive the chariot. This was because Helios made mistakes because he was so heartbroken over the loss of his son.
