Some time ago we got this old Russian cartoon from our language teacher called Жил-был пёс (zhil-buil pyos) – There Once Was a Dog. I found it lying around on the hard-drive again today and thought I’d share it.
It’s a great little story based on a Ukrainian folk tale. Beyond being a fun little tale, I think it shows the “take care of your friends” ethic that Ukrainians have. The human characters in the Russian-made cartoon also poke fun at Ukrainian peasants.
Here’s a nice English-subtitled version.
