Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Vinni Pukh” and “The Lion and the Bull”

Fyodor Khitruk is one of the undisputed masters of Russian animation. Here are two of his many films.

Vinni Pukh: Most audiences will be familiar with the Disney films featuring the same character better known by his English name: Winnie the Pooh. (10:09 minutes)

The Lion and the Ox: Based on a traditional tale from India, this award winning film features my favourite animated lion. (9:44 minutes)
