Soviet Cartoons

Just wanted to inform you that there are tons and tons of great soviet cartoons on the internet, a lot of them with English subtitles. They're all bizarre and artistic and great materials to make memes out of.
The beefball cat already has been a meme. He's from a soviet cartoon called "a kitten named Woof," which is brilliant.

Here's a list I found with a bunch of them:
It's easy to find way more by searching.

Thanks. The Soviets made some wicked stuff.

My mom grew up in Spain and lived some years under Franco but they did have TV from Eastern Europe and she remembers seeing Polish cartoons which she describes as surreal and absurd. I also recently found out Pat & Mat was Czechoslovak. And yeah there's a trove of socialist animation we don't even know about, sad when you think about it.

I vaguely remember seeing this as a kid for some reason. No idea how or why.

This was my childhood TBH. Mowgli, 38 Parrots, Carlson on the Roof, etc.

I'm really sorry but Mr. Freeman is better, the Soviet cartoon with the Wolf was a bit fun too and there was a movie with an owl and a hedgehog I liked a lot as a kid, can't find it.

through our new soviet memes we will bring the workers' revolution!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cat City. Considered by many to be the best of socialist-era Hungarian animation. According to IMDb, it is the 11th best animated movie as of April, 2017. The film opens with a Star Wars style text scroll:

The film is a parody of several famous feature films, mainly the James Bond series. The main plot is about a special spy who is sent to the city of "Pokyo" to get the secret plan of a machine which could save the mouse civilization. Of course, the cats don't want this to happen, and send some rat gangsters to stop him, who don't always prove as efficient as their presentation showed. The movie enjoyed a cult status in many former socialist countries.

Apparently this movie is responsible for the creation of anime

Actually existing soviet anime

Not really, but it was still important. Miyazaki was about to abandon animaton because he wasn't satisfied with it. Then he saw this movie.
We gotta thank this movie for Porco Rosso, Nausicaa and all other Miyazaki movies.

Here are some cartoons form soviet satirical show "Fitil"

Very neat animation style, somewhat jarring, but pretty cool.

It's rotoscoping

it's not soviet but it's funny

Hungarian sounds badass.

Soviet animation is a great way to radicalize man children and neckbeard boards like /tg/ and /co/, whose member greatly praise them and how art was incentivized in the USSR since most of them are sick and tired of the bullshit that monolithic corporations constantly do to their hobbies.

Praise be to Soyuzmultfilm for showing us proper praxis towards snek.

oh man I remember watching this movie over and over again as kid, it was fucking amazing. Watching it as an adult is even better though, there are a bunch of jokes I could have never understood as kid. I fucking love this movie, it definitely deserves more credit.

of course this gets made into porn

Well, thank you. It's one of the hardest languages around but the most aesthetically pleasing one as well:
1) reading:
2) eng. translation:ózsef_Attila-1905/Eszmélet/en/2024-Consciousness

I heard that this movie was highly acclaimed, translated and broadcast in Iran for its "correct" representation of imperialist politics, lol.

haha, this reminds of an old Army joke in the USSR about how if an officer wanted to be tough he would force his soldiers to repeat orders in Hungarian. I can't remember the way it was written out though, sorry.

I own a copy of that on Disc that were made in the 90s.

If you have the English dubbed version, plz upload it to some site and share it!

There's an old Soviet cartoon I used to watch as a kid, about a mule who carries water from a hill. If anyone has a link please hook me up.

Sorry its only in Russian. Also copyrighted. so insta-delet

We had a discussion about that movie four years ago. An important question was raised:
Another question: In the English version there was an absolutely horrendous ear-rape song ("Pussy Talk"). Is the original song also like that?

Who sang that?! There definitely wasn't anything I could call ear-rape that I remember, let alone something names in such a vulgar fashion, soviet censorship would never have allowed it.

Just checked, it doesn't say anything like that in the original.

i dont know if any of these were already posted but there was a mini class on this taught by russian language grad students and thats where i watched most of these. ill try to skip ones from the OP's playlist, but any others ill probably miss.

i see someone posted polygon up a ways. i love that particular animator. anyways im looking for one we watched in class that described 4 hour automated work days and people having personal jet packs and dancing in the sky but haven't found it since

It's been a while. It was a female cat in I think a bar or casino.
And the song's name is repeated in singing and also displayed in the end credits. Pussy happens to be another word for cat, so the meaning flew over kids' heads.

That's not surprising. Am I the only one here who saw the English dub?

I know but its still obvious to an adult what the allusion is.

If you want to understand the utter cultural degeneration the regime change wrought compare the above linked masterpiece made under socialism with its follow up made under capitalism:
This abortion of a movie holds 2,2/10 on IMDB and held the top position for a while on the "100 worst movies ever made" list on the site. It received extremely negative criticism from its Hungarian audience, which was mainly disappointed by the film's failure to capture the style and spirit of the original 1981 film. Made in 2008 it uses completely outdated CGI, ridden with plot holes, stupid characters, gratuitous rapping, etc. The movie makers were involved in a corruption scandal as well: where did the millions go that were invested into this shit? It's budget is like 10x more of the above linked original.

Similarly, Cat City has a disappointing follow up made after the regime change. The humor, the spirit, the enthusiasm is gone, the original hand drawn quality is replaced with computer animation… You can find the Russian dubbed version here:

But don't take this as a recommendation.

this is the original, I fucking love it but that might be because of the nostalgia overdose that it gives me.

Do you know the name of that slavic cartoon with a cat in a yellow/blue spacesuit, flying around?

Holy fuck just watched this, I wish I knew about this sooner, thanks comrade

Jan Švankmajer has to be in the list of the top 20 artists 20th century communist countries produced.
Et Cetera:

From his feature films I recommend his Alice:
Probably the creepiest and most frightening Alice adaptation out there.

The Pied Piper (1985) by Jiří Barta is a feature animation in Medieval setting showing how the money abstraction and production for trade corrupts society entirely. The movie won several awards.

Has anyone posted Shooting Range/Tir yet?

Initially it seems really un-nuanced (albeit well animated) but after the premise is established, animating capitalist life as this absurd arbitrary dance around things that can suddenly kill/ruin you, the metaphor becomes sort of striking.

About Sidorova Vova is a very amusing cartoon.

Where exactly did the meme of Eastern Bloc animation being this terrible come from? I see this shit from time to time, is it just like the food meme? From what I've seen, it was on par or better than what was made in the west.

ngl I want to fuck that female rat though

everything socialist bad


It's a dumb joke about everything socialist being bad. the art style used in the show is also clearly referring to abstract realism that was used in the USSR often.

that's because the left hasn't done anything worth a damn. we have to go back to the past in order to find nice gems

In general, it was just too avant-garde for western audiences hence all the "Worker and Parasite" type jokes about it.

Everyone does, comrade.
