This film is part of the Doctor Aybolit series.


A bear asks Dr. Aybolit for a peacock's tail so he can be the most beautiful creature in the forest. Based on Korney Chukovskiy's children's poem.

This was the last of Amalrik and Polkovnikov's "Dr. Aybolit" films to be made, and the only one of the three for which the colour version has survived.

Chukovskiy's poem "Stomper and the Fox" (Топтыгин и лиса) was first published in 1929, and originally ended with the fox pulling out the feathers of the bear's peacock tail and mocking him, as he's taken away by the hunters.
