Two dogs get attacked by wolves. One chooses to fight the wolves, the other to appease them.

Based on the poem by Sergey Mihalkov.

The first video is the best-quality. Some of the other versions that can be found online have mismatched timing between sound and video, or replace the original soundtrack entirely.




Thank you for posting this! I just discovered Russian animation as of late, and I've been getting myself back into studying Russian as a language, so having a site like this has been a big joy to me. This film, Welcome 1986, and The Painted Fox are already huge favorites of mine. Thank you and to every user here for all the work you do! <3



Thanks for the thanks. :) I like those films as well. Although my favourite film by Karayev is probably The Lodgers of an Old House (though it's very close).

Yes, I had hoped that the site would also be useful for people studying the language. If you go to Browse>Films, you can filter the list of films to include only those that have Russian subtitles, and then switch back and forth between Russian and English as you watch.

And you can also sort the list of films by "Wordiness" depending on how dense you want the dialogue to be (I'm not entirely sure how useful that is, but it was possible to do and kind of neat, so I figured, why not?)
