All ingenious is simple!

One of my favorite cartoons of my childhood was recently caught in the Internet. After seeing it, I again experienced the same enthusiastic feelings as 30 years ago, when this cartoon was shown after the "evening tale", as it was intended "for adults". Who does not know, I explain that some cartoons, according to the authoritative opinion of the then high leadership, were not recommended for viewing by children and were broadcast only when the children had already seen the tenth dreams. In my opinion, completely in vain. If he was shown in "Good night, kids!", And then Khryusha and Stepashka explained to the guys that everyone has their own abilities, and there is no need to try to be someone else, it would be very nice.

In less than 4 minutes, this moral of modern fable was conveyed in a straightforward and unpretentious manner of drawing with the help of phrases completely dissociated into winged expressions. I believe that this cartoon of the creative group of I. Kovalev and A. Tatarsky should rightfully be in the "Golden Fund" of national animation. Naturally, with proper adaptation, this cartoon can be a world-class masterpiece. It is a pity that in our time the focus has shifted towards Luntik and Smeshariki.

"Gone! We work, we work! Ostrich, go! So good! Hey, hey, hey, where? "©
