In the evenings, the little Hedgehog went to the Bear Cub to count stars. They would sit on the log and sip tea, gazing at the starry sky. It hung on the roof, just behind the chimney. To the right of the chimney were the Bear Cub's stars and the stars to the left were the Hedgehog's.

That's really the best short animated film ever made
If you want to ask me why, the answer is simple - HITF is highly philosophic though it's just a simple children story. Such combination is very difficult to create. Lets say Shrek, for example. It's a great movie due to fantastic technical side. It's very pretty, just look at that lovely green ogre. I can say no more on that point - it was a great pleasure to see that film. But where is a great idea in Shrek? Love? Yeah... And? What could it be more important that love? That's where the HITF comes. It's a film about a prickly little creature, which is lost in the fog. Not a huge ogre, who can confront any danger without any silly donkeys. Not a Schwarzenegger with a big bazooka or something like that. It (hedgehog) can nothing to do against the evil life around him. By the by, there's love in this film, love of another kind, a sympathy to the poor curious hedgehog, or a closely friendship between Hedgehog and Bear. Sergei Kozlov made a whole book about them (named "Yozhik"), and any short story in it could pretend to be a film like that.
