From time to time TAG gets accused of being communist (my participation in the Great Patriotic War to Save Vietnam from the Reds to the contrary.) So we present... the Soviet animation industry's answer to Disney's "Winnie the Pooh."
In case you're wondering, Milt Kahl didn't animate on this version of the Milne tales. In fact, it's doubtful that Ivan Kahl worked on it.
The moral of this little fable: Don't overstay your welcome. A lesson the Soviets failed to learn in Afghanistan, and we failed to learn ... elsewhere.
We can only hope that Disney and the Milne family got their cut of the profits from the Workers' Paradise ...back when it was the Workers' Paradise.
