Many animators consider Ёжик в тумане (Hedgehog in the Fog) one of the best-made multifilms ever. The plot is simple… a little hedgehog is on his way to visit his friend the bear cub. The two would meet every night to drink tea from the cub’s samovar. As they drank their tea, the hedgehog and the bear would chat and count the stars together. The 10-minute film is about Hedgehog’s misadventures on one of his trips to visit the Bear Cub. This is one of the most-loved Sov-era multifilms, and people still view it today.

As for the quote from the film, I’ll simply say that the only kind of friendship that I extend is the real kind. I don’t deal in alliances or temporary setups. If I extend friendship to you, trust me, you can expect me to treat your confidences as sacred. Have people betrayed me, with people that I thought friends being otherwise? Certainly… that’s why I only offer real friendship. I don’t offer it lightly. Most people aren’t worth it. The most-untrustworthy lot are clergy… I’ve never met so many phonies and poseurs in my life as I have amongst this cohort. That’s why I find honest clergy a real find. To say that such are rare finds is an understatement…
