10 December 2012. Video. Sov Multifilm Дед Мороз и серый волк (Ded Moroz i sery volk: Ded Moroz and the Grey Wolf)

00 Ded Moroz and the Grey Wolf. 09.12.12



This 1978 multifilm was the sequel to 1974’s Мешок яблок (Meshok yablok: A Bag of Apples). It was a remake of a 1937 multifilm, but Suteyev made creative changes in the scenario. In the plot, Ded Moroz prepares New Year’s gifts for the young forest animals. A grey wolf and raven come up with a plan to kidnap the rabbits. The action centres on the kidnapping of the rabbit children… but have no fear; the plot has the obligatory Sov happy ending. Everyone celebrates the New Year and all the young forest animals get their presents.
