In Soviet Russia…

Винни-Пух is a 1969 animated film by Soyuzmultfilm, directed by Fyodor Khitruk and is the first part of a trilogy.
This is the definitive version of X in Russia. When this was made, Russia was under the iron curtain and hence Khitruk never knew about the western version. This makes it delightfully different from its western adaptation. Major differences include:
•No humans.
•Backgrounds done in crayons
•The title character is not always happy and sometimes even gets snarky. And is brown and not orange.
•The bird is female.
• The most annoying character- the one who ruined everything -is absent.

Sadly some of these changes and some other creative differences caused the translator of the series to leave with only three shorts done when there could have been more.

What  am I talking about?
