A naughty little boy learns that it's no fun to be all by yourself with no friends.

This film is often considered to be the beginning of Estonian animation (although there was one earlier paper-cutout-animation made in 1931 - The Adventures of Juku the Dog - it was a lot more primitive and had no lasting influence). The director of this one, on the other hand, is considered the "father of Estonian animation" and went on to make dozens more animated films, almost all of them using puppet animation.

The video above is a Russian dub - unfortunately, that's the only version on Youtube right now (although the songs are not dubbed-over, and there isn't too much dialogue). However, the above video can also be found online in various places such as RuTracker, and includes a selectable alternate audio track with the original Estonian audio.
