As a kid i loved soviet cartoons and like them even now.
The television films and other material from eastern europe demonstrates one thing – unlike the lavish spending in the west, our artists aimed and always could get a lot of bang for as little buck as possible.

They loved it, especially my portrayal of the lisping Gollum. I later tried reading them The Lord of the Rings, but it did not have the same attraction. Much later they read The Hobbit to their children, immitating my version of Gollum. Don’t know if they went on to Lord of the Rings.

I was think that he giggling on it. I see it on 2leep with title “Lord of the Rings like you never see it before” or something like that, can’t remember exactly.
I hope you understand me correctly. And yes, I’ll continue study in English, thanks)

PS: And very nice that you all like this book too

The way Bilbo’s face is done, though, makes him look a bit like a drunk, at least to me. We all know hobbits like a party but he couldn’t be three sheets to the wind ALL the time …

No one is making fun of this book or calling it monstrous. They are admiring and praising it! I would buy a copy of this if it were available today and I don’t even know enough Russian to read it. And I wish I could watch the whole movie.

Continue to study English and then come back and read this post again and you’ll see that this is a very positive post, not mockery.

I wonder what an edition of The Hobbit would have looked like had it been illustrated by Ivan Bilibin (I can see it in my mind, but only with my eyes shut!)

Thank you for this post.

Judging by the actors and technical details it was probably shot in mid-80’s.

The style is kind of familiar as those illustrations of our local “The Hobbit” book was made by Tove Jansson, the Finnish creator of the Moomin characters. Her style resembles this a lot. I’m sorry but I could find just one example online:

I just wanted to add to the conversation that Bilbao is not in Portugal, but in Spain, in the Basque Country.
And the name of the city of Bilbao in Basque language is Bilbo, like Tolkien’s character :)

Everyone that have read LOTR have also read The Hobbit.

It is being filmed by Peter Jackson/Guillermo del Toro right now and will be released in 2012+2013 (two parts).
