Characters

  1. Bubo was the name of a mechanical owl in the 1981 film Clash of the Titans. It was a gift of Zeus made by Hephaestus for Perseus since Athena would not cede her companion bird. He did not appear in the original Greek myth of Perseus and was invented for the film. Despite his resemblance to the droid R2-D2 of the contemporary Star Wars, Ray Harryhausen actually started work before that film was released: "contrary to what some critics said at the time, Bubo was invented before R2D2".
  2. Bubo is a fictional character from the 2010 animated film Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole.
