While we, Russian native speakers, are enjoying the video lessons of the polyglot Dmitry Petrov, I searched for cartoons with English subtitles. Here is some examples of Soviet and modern Russian animation from Youtube.

Золушка / Cinderella (1979)

I know, I do not need to repeat the plot. :) This cartoon is a classic Soviet animation. We could watch this cartoon online and free on Youtube.

Ёжик в тумане / The Hedgehog in the Fog (1975)

This is a classic Soviet / Russian animated short film. It is based on a story by Sergei Kozlov, directed by Yuri Norstein. In 2003 “Hedgehog in the Fog” won the “№1 Animated film of all the time” at “All time animation best 150 in Japan and Worldwide” contest in Tokyo, Japan.

However, not all people enjoy this cartoon. Some people believe that “Hedgehog” is too meditative and too complicated. So, I would like to hear some comments about this example of Russian /Soviet animation. Express yourself, do not hide your emotions. )))

Take a look at this link. This is a really great website with lots of children tales and poems. Some of them became adorable cartoons for kids. However, it has a pretty strange system of navigation. I could not figure out how to find direct link to each file. So, I copied the script of “Hedgehog in the fog / Ёжик в тумане” and made a pdf document. You can download it here.

Удивительная бочка / Strange vat (1983)

The plot is about how the Hedgehog and the Bear cub celebrate the coming of spring. The same characters (and the same author, Kozlov), but the style of animation is totally different.

To my regret, this cartoon has no English subtitles. So, I downloaded this story from hedgehoginmist.narod.ru and made a pdf document. A script is better than subtitles.  To download it now click this link.  Be free to play with Russain text, analyze grammar and memorize new words.

Маша и медведь / Masha and the Bear (2009)

(02 До весны не будить /  02 Don’t wake up until spring)

What can I say about this young lady who likes to jump in an old bucket? She is a main character of the hilarious and commercially successful series “Masha and The Bear”. The official website animaccord.ru/mim/eng.php says us that these series are inteneded for children between 3 and 9, but parents like them too.

Though the characters are familiar to the viewer from a famous Russian fairy-tale, a new twist to this old story will change the way people nowadays view this tale – the characters exist in our time, their lifestyle is both modern and absurd, their relationship is not of a little girl and a beast but of a grown-up and a child, a little person and an enormous world.

If you cannot find subtitles from the first view, then try and watch them on Youtube. Click the red CC button.

Самый страшный зверь / The most scary animal (2008)

Russian cartoons with English subtitles, Russian animation, cartoons in russian, russian cartoons, soviet cartoons, russian cartoons for children, russian cartoons youtube, russian cartoons for kids

This is a children’s film, which script is based on folk fairy-tales of Brazilian Indians. The author’s name is Dmitry Rezchikov / Дмитрий Резчиков. His blog is devon9.livejournal.com.

He said: “The story is about a cowardly rabbit, who was terribly ashamed of being such a coward, but when he met a huge hungry jaguar in the selva, he managed to outsmart him”. This film got the “Anima Mundi Itinerant Award” in Brasil.

If you find this subject interesting, then ask me for another Russian cartoons with scripts, subtitles or my own transcript. It is a fun and easy way to deal with Russian language. Good luck! :-)

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I found this in my search for something regarding this.

    Hmm, we need more comments on this entry so we can have a dissenting opinion of “Hedgehog in the Fog”, because I really like this film. The medium and style of the film is very beautiful, and the story is good, with a bit of creepiness and peculiarity to it. But this film is known around the world, the rest are new to me (By the way, I’ve heard that the director is working on a film of his; it’s been in the works for 20 or 30 years. Well, I sure hope he finishes it.)

    I think my favorite is of these new films, to my eyes, is Masha and the bear. It’s such a funny little film! The little girl is such a wonderful pest, just like little kids, endlessly adorable and yet, they can be a handful! The 3d animation is also very good and expressive for TV animation. So I will be watching more of these :)

    Спасибо for the scripts, it’s helpful to be able to read the words they are saying. It’s also helpful to have for when you hear a word you think you might know but it’s unfortunately surrounded by other pesky words on each side that confuse the ear :) (One more thing, where is script and video for another great series from the same studio that made Hedgehog in the fog, Винни Пух?!? :) )

    Это всё. Well, I can tell by the comments on this post, it’s not one of your most popular entries, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
