Cheburashka is a creature unknown to science. After the zoo rejects him, he becomes lonely and wants friends. Meanwhile, a crocodile named Gena is in the same boat and seeks friendship. The two meet and build a house for the lonely.
Young Troubadour and his friends - Donkey, Dog, Cat and Rooster - come to the royal castle for a performance. At the end of the performance, the young man, having seen the Princess close, immediately falls in love with her, but at the Pyramid number the actors fail, and the Princess's father, the King, impolitely expels the actors from the castle courtyard. On the way, travelers stumble upon a hut of robbers and Chieftain, who conceived an attack on the royal motorcade.Written by
The thing that will surprise you most about Bremenskie Muzykanty is how such amazing music and voice work can be accompanied by such slipshod animation. There is no question, here is probably the best soundtrack in Soviet cartoons. All the songs are witty, masterful, fun, emotionally stirring, and life-affirming, and Oleg Anofriev's character work is unforgettable. Meanwhile the animation is amateurish and unsophisticated at best. It's flat, there's no personality or engaging style, and it really looks like a bad afterthought, the creators rushing to showcase the songs without giving due consideration to the visuals. So sit back, close your eyes, and enjoy the magic. Or better yet, get your hands on the soundtrack with Anofriev doing additional narration, which is a truly wonderful recording.
