Discover the myth of Bellerophon, the hero who battled and killed the Chimera monster atop the winged horse Pegasus. Shielded from the gorgon’s stone gaze, Perseus crept through Medusa’s cave. When he reached her, he drew his sickle and brought it down on her neck. From Medusa's neck sprung two children. One was a giant wielding a golden sword; the other was the magnificent, winged horse, Pegasus. No bridle could contain him— until one fateful day. Iseult Gillespie details the myth of the hero Bellerophon. Lesson by Iseult Gillespie, directed by Karina Forero, Lucy Animation Studio.

neat story, but it's very far from accurate
Father, why do you never set your feet outside of the bed at night?
Well son, it all started with a son Zeus had outside of his marriage…
So basically Zeus sent a fly or mosquito to bite a greedy dude’s hand and a winged horse yeets him XD
Pegasus survived 😃😃😃😃😃😃😃
Ted-Ed, have you ever heard of the myth of Kratos?
i read about this myth in stephen fry's book called 'heroes' (10/10, definitely recommend!!), and it is definitely one of my favourite myths of all time!!
So in a way Zeus was against Athena ....
Well I hope they can forgive each other.
This animation is so old
Indonesian sub ..??
Welp I had no idea Pegasus came from Medusa’s severed neck in Greek mythology. That’s an interesting component of the story. Great video and animation!
If only Bellerophon had thought to use a saddle.
maybe legends of the chimera were inspired by a fossil of an ibex humping a puma while crapping out a viper
Zues is the guy who makes sure .you are not as cool as you think...
Its freaking zues again
People where trying to get him cancelled
Hi, i have a suggestion, i think it's also good if there are relatable stoies, u know like, stories about humanity, with purely no fictunal creatures, or fantasy things, just natural fiction. It would be nice, especially with moral lesson. 📖
Need to make video about eleusinian mysteries
TEDed: where he was forever immortalized in the stars…
BEYBLADE BEYBLADE LET IT RIP!!!
