Even though dated by today's standards, "Guests of the Future" tends to be a very memorable children's show. I've always consitered Pavel Arsenov to be Russia's "Leiji Matsumoto".
Plot revolves around 11 year old Kolya Gerasimov who discovers a time machine in a basement of an old house in Moscow and gets transferred into the 21st century. Then he is allowed to look around, everything seems to be different! Accidentally, Kolya witnesses two space pirates who arrive from Saturn and later try to steal a device called a "Mielophone" (which can read thoughts) from Alisa Seleznyova - a young girl who could talk to animals and machinery. Kolya manages to save the device from the pirates and brings it back to the 20th century. But both pirates and Alisa get there too. Alisa knows where Kolya studies but doesn't know what he looks like. Pirates saw Kolya, however, they know nothing about him.
Very deep plot, nice soundtrack and rather thought provoking, consitiering that the audience that is aimed for is children/pre-teen audience. It was availiable for a while (In Russian and Mandarin with Chinese subtitles), but I think they should re-release it again one day!
