Originally it was 'Vladimir Vysotsky (I)' who had to perform for Wolf. But he wasn't approved by Soviet cinema authorities because of his personality (Vysotsky was popular among the "grassroot" but not among the Communist party elite). As a result, Vysotsky was replaced by Anatoliy Papanov. However, a small part of Vysotsky's well-known "Song about a Friend" ("Pesnya o druge" in Russian) can be heard at the beginning of the 1st episode (when Wolf climbs up with the help of a rope) and in the 10th episode (the replay of the same moment, but Wolf and Hare trade places).

So I think everybody here will agree with me that these are the one of the very best animation films ever made in Soviet Union. So if you are understanding Russian language I can recommend to see them!
While there are only two main heroes in all series - Wolf and Hare this is amazing work of Soviet times animation masters. In fact these series are a little bit similar to Tom and Jerry series. Only they are not so much pain for bad hero - Wolf.
