The story of the North American gray wolf Lobo, who lived in the Currumpaw Valley. Based on Ernest Thompson Seton's 1898 book Wild Animals I Have Known.

The book can be read here (the story of Lobo is right at the beginning). It was one of the most popular books of its day, and began the new genre of realistic wild-animal fiction.

After Saratovtelefilm stopped making animation in the mid-1990s due to the terrible economy, Belyayev was left with no studio that would allow him to make his next planned film about wild animals. This 6-minute pilot film, eventually released by the new "Master-Film" studio, took him six years (though he did participate in the Optimus Mundus project in the meantime, as well). It was evidently hoped that some financing would come through to allow the story to be finished and fleshed out more, but it never did, so this all we have.

There is also another video here with a slightly brighter image, but it can only be viewed on Youtube.
