The ordinary schoolgirl Masha is kidnapped by Bahram the Wizard to be his apprentice underground. Based on the book by Eduard Uspenskiy.

Although this animated film doesn't seem to have won any awards, it was quite popular among Soviet children of the era.

The magical phrase that Bahram uses throughout the film, "Bir-ike", comes from the words "one-two" in the Uzbek and Turkmen languages (and similar to the same words in Kazakh - "byr-eki").

The first video above is in 23.976fps (almost the original 24fps) and is sharper than the second video, which is in 25fps. However, the colours in the first video seem to be too yellow, and it seems to have been through a filter than simplifies texture (see the statue at 2:01, and compare to 1:50 in the second video).
