Hurrah! My Avatar DVD arrived this week
and I watched it today. I had a bad week and a tough training session this morning, so it really cheered me up
Thank you for recommending it! I like the martial arts animations too, and I love the penguins
Can you give some examples of those animations?
I searched IMDB, and all the television websites, and google... I learned all sorts of interesting things about the industry, and discovered Cheburashka
but no familiar-looking cartoons
I don't remember them very well, but they were often abstract, and probably aimed at a more adult audience. They would be things like a stick-boy cycling into a city, where the buildings turn into monsters and eat him... Or a team of workmen building a house and passing each other tools. Some of them were Hungarian (I would try to spot the word "Magyar" in the credits
I was a simple child...) but some had credits in Cyrillic text. They were nearly always black-and-white, or quite earthy colour schemes (dark oranges and greens and brown), and very stylised; not very much like Knyaz Vladimir (I haven't seen any of the Soyuzmultfilm or Solnechniy Dom cartoons, but I gather they're being released with english dubbing).
