"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
As a native Russian who hasn't seen the series since childhood, I recently bought a DVD of all 18 episodes. I am happy to note that the cartoon remained exactly as I recall it - smart, funny, well animated, and even the Soviet-era themes felt fresh in that retro-modern way. I showed it to some of my friends, and they found it hilarious and not hard to understand at all. I admit that a bit of humour is always added through the lyrics of the pop-songs, which could be lost on a non-native speaker. The content of the series is also closer to the Tom and Jerry cartoons (Roadrunner??? Are you kidding me?), but smarter. I would highly recommend it to anyone as an example of fine and original film-making.
