What a treasure!
17 June 2012 | by GblakeliiSee all my reviews

When you think of animation, Poland is not one of the first countries that comes to mind. How refreshing, then, to run into not only an original Polish cartoon, but a TV series that has become a long lasting classic! Bolek i Lolek is unique in that the stories are not conveyed through the use of dialogue. In 1963, this was a very creative approach. The Pink Panther cartoons could be considered one of it's few parallels. As for the plots, the imagination is given free reign as we join the two young boys on fantastic imaginary adventures. They build a space rocket, drive a car that turns into a horse, meet the abominable snowman(aka Yeti), become cowboys, etc. The animation technique is distinctive, the music well done, and the sound effects superb. While there is no dialogue, that doesn't rule out voice characterizations, although not to the degree of Dr. Seuss' character, Gerald McBoing Boing. An evil adversary emits wicked laughter, a pet dog sniffs loudly, and so on. This series should really be more well known then it already is , as it uses a universal language. Your comprehension of world animation is not complete without Bolek i Lolek!
