Nu Pogodi! The Most Favorite Russian Cartoon Ever

Nu, pogodi! (You Just Wait!) is a series of Russian animated shorts directed by Vyacheslav Kotyonochkin, produced at the Soyuzmultfilm studio in Moscow, between 1969 and 1986. The plot is similar to the world-famous cartoons, Tom & Jerry or The Road Runner: the Wolf (Volk), a hooligan and a smoker, tries to catch the Hare (Zayats), a very positive and kind hero, with the intention of eating him. Every episode
shows various aspects of life. For example, there are episodes in a museum, in a city, at the fairground at night, etc. As for music, only modern musical hits of that time were used. This series has become the favorite Soviet cartoon among several generations of Russians families even up until today. Any additional information can be found here, and the whole series is below.

Paper Plates

Normal car plates in Russia are made of the paint coated steel - like in European countries. But it seems this guy has lost one of his plates and decided to make an alternative - just to print out a full size of his plates on the paper. Really why not, I've heard that in India they don't get plates from
the state at all, they just get alpha-numerical combination from the road inspection and produce the plates by themselves. The methods therefore vary greatly - some draw them right on the car, some on wooden plates etc etc. This guy can give a good example for Indian drivers..

It's well known that one horse power is enough to transport a person or even a

18 Soviet Funk by Muslim Magomaev

Soviet Funk by Muslim Magomaev

Muslim Magomaev (Azerbaijani by origin) is one of the best and well-known Soviet singers. Unfortunately, the big part of his songs was forbidden by the State censorship as inappropriate for the Soviet ideology, but of course there were some exceptions, like this one. The song about Baku, the capital of the former Soviet republic Azerbaijan, called "Baku, my city", is considered as one of the most
non-typical Soviet musical hits. It was written in the funk style, what was unusual for the USSR era by itself. And Muslim Magomaev in this video clip looks like Sean Connery in the movie about James Bond. But the clip has passed the censorship, because of the positive impression about Baku and the USSR it created. Also in this clip one can see Baku of the Soviet times.

Military Soviet Stamping

We've already told about the strange Soviet stamp issued for the 50th anniversary of the Soviet Army at 1968. And this is the stamping of approximately the the Civil War
time. Looking on it, it is also hard to say, what the authors tried to tell common people about the Soviet army and the Revolution. submitted by Zealot
