Outside of any doubts the most known and loveable cartoons in Soviet Union was the NU POGODI! (Which one may translate as the WELL, BE CAUTIOUS!) series. The NU POGODI! cartoons were made every year since 1969 to 1986, one short per year on the average (there were two cartoons in 1971 and in 1973). And every new cartoon was a big holiday for all Soviet children. Obviously that the most close Western analogue to NU POGODI was a TOM AND JERRY cartoons. Many people think that NU POGODI is the imitation of TOM AND JERRY but actually even the permanent director of NU POGODI Vyacheslav Kotenochkin did not see the MGM cartoons when began work on own series.
Today we begin to put online some art material done for NU POGODI. You will see the clean up drawings, cels and photo. Hope you will like it. And for us it is a history.
These drawings were done for 8th part. Animation by Victor Arsentiev. Clean Up by Sergey Marakasov.
