Splendid!
15 January 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderfully done cartoon; every song is superb and catchy, highly recommended for those who don't even speak the language since every piece of dialogue is part of a song anyway, and you don't really have to know Russian to appreciate those.
