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".


When Zeus saw that Perseus was 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 refused, but then relied on Hephaestus to build a mechanical version of her owl. Bubo the brass-and-iron owl was then sent to Earth where he helped Perseus on his Quest to the Stygian Witches

    In the 2014 Super Bowl ad for Radio Shack- when the 1980's all-stars (Alf, Friday the 13th, Child's Play, California Raisins, Cliff Calvin, etc.) take away everything outdated and obsolete from Radio Shack, among all these '80s all stars is Bubo in "Clash of the Titans".
  • A prop of Bubo also appears in the "Clash of the Titans" remake, stored in a box of weapons. Perseus asks what it is, but is told to leave it behind.
