Storyline

Uncle Fyodor, a very independent urban boy, leaves the parental home with his new pet and friend, the economic cat Matroskin. Friends come to the village of Prostokvashino, where they get acquainted with the local dog Sharik, who points them to a free house. Parents of Uncle Fyodor give a note in the newspaper about the missing boy. This is learned by the rural postman Pechkin, who surrenders the boy to his parents in the hope of receiving a reward - a bicycle. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

No argument here, it's a classic.
16 October 2006 | by superperson1See all my reviews

Among the more perfect Soviet cartoons. No possible complaints about this one. It's compassionate, charming, and clever. A considerate, principled, not-vomit-inducingly-adorable boy, some witty anthropomorphic household pets, some bantering grown-ups to keep the adult contingency entertained, a hapless proletariat postal worker, and sincere, uncondescending Soviet wholesomeness and humor. Who could ask for anything more? Looking back at the pop culture of the Soviet sixties and seventies, when movies were original and funny, and cartoons were earnest and idealistic, when there wasn't sarcasm or cynicism, it does give you the perhaps entirely false but nonetheless sober impression that Soviet citizens were once happy, for a time. This cartoon is one of the reason Russians look back at this era nostalgically and to watch this cartoon is to fondly recollect the warmth and wit that that part of the world lost in the past two decades
