Great cartoon
19 December 2004 | by (Stockton, California) – See all my reviews

This is one of the greatest cartoons that i watched when i was a kid. It was very popular in Soviet Union at that time, and was shown on TV very often. Even now I still enjoy this cartoon, it has wonderful and memorable music, characters are so lovable and the plot is great (well, it's based on the story of brothers' Grimm). It has great deal of humor and romance and it's done so nicely. Characters are dressed in the style of 70's which gives the cartoon that special 70's touch. It is a musical cartoon, even if you don't know Russian, you will still understand what is going on. I highly recommend it not only to kids but also to adults who enjoy good and kind cartoons.
