This film is part of the The Bremen Town Musicians series.


Troubadour falls in love with a Princess and makes up a plan how to get the King's confidence. Based loosely on the eponymous German fairy tale.

This cartoon became a smash hit due to its catchy music and hippie sensibilities, though it also received a lot of professional criticism (largely due to the weak story). Two sequels were made, though not by the same director.

The plot veers quite far from that of the original fairy tale, which had no troubadour man, nor princess, nor king. For a more "faithful" adaptation, see Aleksandr Ptushko's 1936 puppet animation.

The three bandits that appear at 7:55 are animated versions of a trio of actors that appeared in a whole lot of popular Soviet live-action comedies from 1961 to 1980.
