The Adventures of Captain Wrongel

Aventuras del capitán Wrungel (es)


A 13-episode series that adapts A. Nekrasov's 1930s novel featuring the tall tales of Captain Wrongel, first mate Lom and sailor Fuchs as they attempt to win a sailing regatta while being pursued by gangsters who are themselves pursued by a handsome and practically invincible Agent 00X.

The episodes were made from 1976-1979 at the rate of 3-4 a year (which was 2-4 times faster than most directors were producing animation in the USSR), then shown on Soviet TV during March Break in 1980, and again in 1983.

The director of all the episodes was David Cherkasskiy, who used different animation styles and live action footage in his adaptation - partly to speed up the process, and partly because of the different artistic possibilities of the different techniques.

More info on the character and the novel can be found in the Russian Wikipedia article.
