Cheburashka

NAKAMURA Makoto

Animated feature film [Japan]

A wooden crate of oranges that traveled from a distant southern country contains a bizarre brown animal with round ears and short tail. It keeps topping over, so it is given the name “Cheburashka,” a Russian colloquialism for “tumbled” or “toppled” Cheburashka befriends the lonely crocodile Gena, and the two of them meet many new friends and expand their circle of happiness. Cheburashka is a heartwarming puppet animation.(63 min.)
