The Soviet Winnie-the-Pooh has admired Americans with the "smoked" voice

The Soviet animated film "Winnie-the-Pooh's Adventures" has caused admiration in the American observer Natalya Vinkelman. The author has shared the impressions after viewing of the animated film on pages of the The Daily Beast edition. It is remarkable that Vinkelman in the article compares the Soviet animated hero to his American fellow. According to the observer, the Soviet Winnie "simpler, strange and ridiculous". The American teddy bear is similar to an adult bear, he is dressed in a short yellow t-shirt, and at him sticks out a stomach. The Soviet Winnie-the-Pooh is more similar to the children's character as he brown and roundish, he has widely opened eyes, as at a raccoon, and black paws which often separate from his body. The author calls the Soviet Winnie-the-Pooh the joker and the sly fellow who constantly gets into comic situations. She admires how often he pulls down the so-called "fourth wall" among themselves and the viewer, and every time when gets into difficulties or to him there is something strange, darts at the viewer a glance of the huge innocent eyes. In similar situations the American Winnie just chilly exclaims: "There is an ill luck!" Besides, Vinkelman has noted unusual music of the animated film and texts of songs of Winnie. According to her, they at the same time simple and with serious sense. She gives fragments from songs about sawdust in the head as an example and about an empty pot. The special highlight to songs is given by a gravelly voice of Winnie-the-Pooh which makes such impression that he constantly smoked the Soviet cigarettes, the author writes. At the end of article the observer is surprised why this amusing Soviet animated film didn't become cult in the West.
