Storyboard Text

  • HE is the only one who can move the boulder 
  • Odysseus, along with his men, come to an island filled with massive creatures called Cyclops.
  • Odysseus and some of his men find a huge open cave and decide to go in. Once inside they find cheese. Odysseus's men suggest they take the cheese and leave, but Odysseus doesn't listen.
  • The cyclops took two of Odysseus's men and ate them whole. Odysseus took his sword and was about to stab the cyclops but decided not to since he was the only one strong enough to move the massive boulder away from the door.
  • I am going to kill you 
  • While the cyclops was sleeping, Odysseus and four other of the strongest men took a massive, hot, makeshift spear and jammed it into the cyclops's eye and blinded him.
  • Odysseus was able to sneak past the cyclops by tying his men to the bottom of the sheep who are always let out in the morning so that they can graze in the field.
  • The cyclops had no idea that Odysseus left the cave until he started to taunt both the cyclops and Poseidon, the god of the sea. Odysseus was therefore lost at sea for ten years and also lost his whole crew.
