A remake of film Fedya Zaytsev from 1948 but with a continuation of the story. Schoolboy Fedya Zaytsev draws a little man on the walls of his school but lumps the blame onto his comrade. The little man comes to live and confronts him.

The first video (53:49) has a better image, but there is some hissing in the sound. The second video (52:39) has better sound.

Notes from Eus:
In 1948 this was a revolution against the iron clad social realism dogma, as it introduces a stock puppet drawing as an active character into the animation: A completely non-social-realistic element, and yet it passed the censorship. The little figure became an opening gimmick for most Brumberg sisters animation after this animation, which in itself is also a breakaway from social realism film, a step by step development seen from the late 50s to the early 60s.
