Dear friends, I was born in the Soviet Union. One of the joys of my childhood were the Soviet animated films. I'm in my 30s now, but I do not cease to marvel at the beauty and the kindness of Soviet cartoons. These are the real masterpieces. They strongly differed from those western animated television series which I saw later (DuckTales, Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, etc.).

The western series were standardized and inanimate while the Soviet films were filled with true human kindness and love. It’s like the Soviet artists, animators and actors (and the whole team) really put their hearts and souls into it, therefore it gives a unique experience for both children and adults.

If you were less fortunate and you had no opportunity to watch it – you should get acquainted with these masterpieces at least now.

P.S. I’m not saying that the western series are worse than the Soviet films, they are just different. Most likely because the western studios were primarily commercial enterprises and aimed for commercial success, and the Soviet ones were sponsored by the state. Not to mention that Disney’s films which I watched were television series, not the single separate films – so actually these are the different categories.

1. Hedgehog in the Fog (1975, wiki, imdb).

2. Winnie-the-Pooh (1969, wiki, imdb).
It is the first part of a trilogy, along with two sequels: Winnie-the-Pooh Pays a Visit (1971) and Winnie-the-Pooh and a Busy Day (1972).

3. Junior and Karlsson (1968, wiki, imdb).

And the sequel: Karlsson Returns (1970, wiki, imdb).

4. Vovka in a Far Away Kingdom (1965, wiki, imdb).
(it's a pity there’s a delay in subtitles for 6-8 seconds)

5. The Mystery of the Third Planet (1981, wiki, imdb).

6. Treasure Island (1988, wiki, imdb).

I will add some more if someone is interested! ‘)

Great thread, I've seen the Hedgehog on before on a 'top 100 animated films of all time' torrent (worth finding, completely legal to DL).

Here's a music video by one of my favorite new artists 'Lazerhawk'. The film is an old soviet cartoon titled "Mirror Of Time" 1967
