"Well, wait!" - Soviet and Russian animated series. The story of this animation began in 1969. Directed by Gennady Sokolskiy was filmed "zero" series for the cartoon "Merry Carousel", the main idea of which formed the basis of the famous animated series "Well, wait!". The basis of the animation is that the wolf chases the hare in the hope of eating it, but for various reasons he can not do it. As a result, the hare is always the winner, and the wolf at the end of each series says or shouts: "Well, Hare, wait!."Written by
Originally it was Vladimir Vysotskiy 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).

This is the greatest cartoon to ever come out of USSR. It is similar to Tom and Jerry, and you don't even need to understand Russian to enjoy this great feature. Problem is finding any of it here in America...If anyone knows where I can get it, please email me.
