Clearly, the Soviets loved Walt Disney as much as we Capitalist Imperialist pigs did – imitation being the sincerest form of flattery. Wish I read Russian! I can make out ‘The Lion and the Hare’ on the second one.
When I see foreign animation, particularly Eastern European and Russian cartoons, I always think of the PBS series ‘International Animation Festival’ from the late 1970′s hosted by Jean Marsh. I remember Yugoslavia and in particular Zagreb (now the capital of Croatia) being a hotbed of often subversive slyly anti-communist short features.
