>Man, that was beautiful.
>I almost cried watching it.


>When was this series on? Was it during the 80s? We never enjoyed so educative and touching cartoons in the west! It's nice of you to have added the subtitles because my Russian are so rusty! I'm putting your channel on my bulletin for my friends!


>This is a very cute cartoon. I love the message.

>I didn't know Russian Animation was this good untill recently. I haven't seen too many Russian cartoons, but they're very good.


>It's nice to see what Soviet Russia was not as cold and heartless as they would lead you to believe.


>Most Soviet cartoons are so humane, innocent, and full of morals. The more and more I watch American cartoons (past and present) I see the huge difference. It seems to me that the creators of American cartoons want to make it entertaining to the children's parents as well (for business purposes), putting in cartoons adult themes, like dealing with adult relationships, and as a result the innocence and childhood wonder is lost in the American cartoons.



This was a very innocent and creative short film that truly embodies the childish cheerful imaginative mind and play. I find it very charming
