Apart from the character of Icarus, this cartoon has nothing to do with epynomial [[GreekMythology greek myth]]. The original gave us [[AnAesop an aesop]] about Icarus who boldly wanted to reach the sun and burned his wings trying, while this short tells a story about so-called 'wise men' preying on visionaries.

Soviet 1976 animated short by Fyodor Khitruk.

In a community where most of the citizens are serious, thoughtful wise men there is a strange man who dreams of flying. He makes himself pair of wings but he falls. Then he invents a series of devices but they all fare just as bad. But Icarus never gives up and tries something new every day.
