Is this it?

This is a wonderful stop motion cartoon series that I just found out about a few days ago. But they were hugely popular in the 80s and 90s all over the world.

Thanks to its distinct lack of spoken dialogue, the show became popular throughout the world, being aired in nations that include Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic and Slovakia), Sweden, Syria, Iraq, Poland, former Yugoslavia, Iceland, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Brazil, Finland, Japan, Norway, Spain, Iran, Hungary, Jordan, South Africa, and South Korea. -Wikipedia

Ladies and Gentlemen, Pat and Mat

In this episode they are trying to make time for doing laundry but keep getting distracted by their crossword puzzles. It’s wonderful writing, really clear and clownish. And the detail of their world is really beautiful.

Vinni Pukh We Love You

Presenting Vinni Pukh.

In this episode Vinni comes across a tall tree with a bee hive on the tallest branch. Everybody knows that bees make honey, and Vinnie is a hungry Pukh. He convinces his friend to help him get the honey by way of balloon and umbrella. Sound familiar?

This is the Soviet’s take on the more familiar Disney Winnie the Pooh cartoon. This adaptation was created in 1968 by Soyuzmultfilm, the USSR’s premiere animation studio. In the following years they animated and adapted a few more of the Pooh stories.

cheburashkaMy old friend Gene—who grew up in Russia watching these old cartoons—first told me about Vinni Pukh when I asked him about the overly adorable Cheburashka Bear. He recommended one more cartoon to me which is great: Hedgehog in the Fog.

I love you the best Винни-Пух.
