alitta2Aww thank you so much for this gift! :)
I remember that I've also made a short comic for another Polish friend of mine for some years (who unfortunately deleted his account here around 2012, and he currently is only on dA).

SaltwaterThank you!
I am very glad that you like it.
I tried to find your Reksio comic on the other site, but I could not find it....
If you send me the link (in a private note) to your comic then I will fave it!  :-)

SaltwaterThank you so much.  :D

Reksio is a nice cartoon, and it is not necessary to speak Polish to enjoy it.  ;-)

TeeJay87I'm familiar with Reksio - we used to have it emitted on our TV as regular evening cartoon for children until TV schedule changed after 2010.

There have also been books and video games written after the cartoon, though I don't recall them being exported abroad.

SaltwaterMaybe I am wrong, but I think that some of your most popular cartoons,
like "Reksio the dog" and  "bolek i lolek" for example,
 can be seen in other Eastern Europe countries,  (like in Hungary) ....

TeeJay87We had our cartoons exported around the entire Warsaw Pact - they were popular in Hungary, former Czechoslovakia and even Germans from DDR enjoyed those. Only Bolshlocks rejected "Reksio" and "Bolek i Lolek" because they've always been fond of their own animation.

SaltwaterYes, Bolshlocks have the wolf   "Nu, pogodi! " .

TeeJay87Their company "Soyozmultifilm" has also produced more cartoons, but only "Nu, pogodi !" became considerably popular inside the Warsaw Pact.

Mostly because the audience enjoyed the scenes, where bunny tricked the wolf without using violence; while the wolf himself can be read as allegory of Kremlin's oppression inside Central and Eastern Europe between 1939 and 1991. :)

alitta2Maybe the other notable show from their works is "Cheburashka":
Just to mention, they have also tried to copy Winnie the Pooh , but perhaps because of the lack of funds (or simply was just the style?), it's poorly drawn, and maybe we can be gladful that it was not widespread within the Eastern Block:

TeeJay87I don't recall "Cheburashka" shown here, though it may had been emitted by our TV.

As for their version of "Winnie the Pooh", it looks exactly as poor as you described. Guess it wasn't popular due to retained original English title, reminding the audience "their capitalist enemies from the West".
