I've seen the cartoon several times, since I was a child (I was born in Russia). It is based on a sweet book, which I've also read. It is preferable for one to know Russian for a full understanding of the wit and the humor in the story, but not so necessary. It is a unique cartoon that is watched and loved by several generations in Russia (my parents love it)and for very good reasons: clean but not childish humor, smart characters and nice songs. For someone who grew outside of Russia, it will be interesting to see the life of an ordinary Russian family back in the 70's, or to be exact - how it was portrayed through a cartoon. The quotes from the cartoon are known to almost everyone in Russia.
