I was two years old when I first heard the music of Bremenskiye Muzykanty.
Bremenskiye Muzykanty is an excellent children's/family animation story. The characters are universal and endearing, instilling a sense of diversity (a young man, a rooster, a cat, a dog and an ass) and cooperation. The story is universal, playing on a theme of its time: Freedom from rule by authority; And existentialism.
Artistically drawn. Set in Victorian Europe (Bremen is in Germany).
In the Soviet Union, where I grew up, this story was widely available on records and extremely popular with children and adults alike. It was occasionally shown on state run television. It was so loved that the toys of the characters appeared in toy store windows after its release.
I always loved it, but thought I would never see it again. A few years ago I found a video tape version and a CD of the story in New York. I now play it for my new-born.
I recommend it very highly.
