The USSR’s longest running animated series.
SCORE! First, called it!
Also, love the knock off Russian anime for Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers, really takes me back lol
Today’s reluctant hero….
I’m neither the hero you deserve (no one should suffer my existance lol) or the one you need. I’m the one you got ^^
Nah, I stole that bit direct from Rusche himself. I like referring to “First!” posters as “today’s reluctant hero”, like it’s really an accomplishment.
I totally did not get that reference until you pointed it out.
haha yeah believe it or not lol have seen dvds just like that
Contains entire series. Episodes one through two. Creator was shot following change in regime; new premier said Comrade looked too much like his brother and that mockery of new authority would not be tolerated.
Wait a minute…that’s not what the box says!
If I’m reading this right…it says…
Tarra’s the secret lesbian and Ellie ends up with…Barrel? That can’t be right. Rusche, what madness is this?
Crazy backwards letters…
Is that really what it says or are you playing, Steve? I can’t read Russian XD
*face palms* This is going to inspire more tinfoil hat wearing than the ending credits for Gravity Falls, I just know it.
Hey, if Weird Al says it’s enough to protect me from orbital mind control lasers, I don’t question it.
Just remember tin foil blocks radio waves, aluminum foil (sometimes helpfully marketed as “tin foil”) is $@#%ing useless for protecting your brain.
It’s true. I tried aluminum foil once. It was terrible. Only took the aliens about half a second to break through the outer shell, and after that, all hell broke loose.
A guy in college knew a girl at the college radio station that he said actually did wear a foil hat for mind control concerns. I didn’t know her but wanted him to point out to her how that might shield electrical fields, but not magnetic. He thought that was too mean, but I kinda’ was hoping it’d result in her trying to obtain a mu metal hat.
These days I just like to point out how bright those would light up on radar.
There was a recent firmware update, you’ll need to upgrade your hat.
It’s been a long while, but I can still read it. It says “Vladimir and Comrade: Oppression Chipmunks”. I had to look up the Oppression Chipmunks part…. for some reason I didn’t learn that in the 2 years of Russian I took in college. And they said my university degree would be completely useless!
Wow. Authentic Cyrillic. Kudos, Rusche!
Come for the attractive young women and comedy, stay for the tiny details and extra authenticity.
But I think he pluralized “Comrade”; singular is just “Tovarishch” not “Tovarishchi”.
But it has been a long time since Russian class.
Stupid Google Translate…
contains episodes one thru one
Nono, is good deal. Contains nothing.
“Is perfekt for storing dvd you DO enjoy”
Oh, I missed you lot. It’s been a while.
Okay I don’t have one. I’m just happy we’re together.
It is kind of nice, it feels like it’s been forever since we went Christmas shopping together. Or was it just a few months ago…
Is this why Pumpkin has so far ignored my advice on how to get free drinks from guys? It explains so much…
My hangover must be making feel mellow. Normally I’d just bash Cinn or say “up yours” or something.
Alcohol really is the cause and solution to all of life’s problems.
Amen to dat sistah.
Shrak 2 is classic. Is much better than original. With less reliance on topical humor and pop culture references Shrak 2 is holding up better with age than it’s bloated capitalist inspiration. Balalaika montage remains culturally relavent to this day.
Liar! Clearly you have been brainwashed by capitalists. All know original Shrak remain faithful to glorious party ideals, while Shrak 2 simply vehicle for Nikolai Borshnev’s career! Also was mere excuse to give Lindsay Lohan supporting role.
Shrak 1 & 2 were both OK, but where the series /really/ hit it off was Shrak 3. I mean, I know alot of people thought it didn’t remain very true to the original, but it had a much deeper story with more engaging characters. Of course, that probably was to do with the director for the first two being jailed for his thinly disguised slights against the Prime Minister throughout both movies.
A shame, too. Much enjoyed comical antics of Shrak 2′s Vice Premier Woodenhead. Was funny.
Wait…is knock at door. Wonder who that could be at this time of ni
Yes, but how much of those two episodes contain vodka? These are crucial distinctions.
Did someone say vodka? You are now officially the most interesting person here :)
If also had a light that would be awesome.
I bet Jet still did the theme song for it.
I want to see Shrack 2. Sound like good movie. Is where the Shrack monster does the, eh….heroism. For the little creatures. Is good.
Da! Is good! Is best animated movie released that afternoon between the hours of 2 and 4PM. Says so on box so must be true.
Maybe it was a BBC series and each “episode” is 9000 minutes long.
Ah, Sherlock fan then?
how to train your donkey is excellent movie showing the virtues of giving all for the benefit of the community
With Donkey, you get unexpected bonus of fertilizer.
Dragons poop too. Everyone does, at least according to classic literature.
Not all living things poop fertilizer. Take yeast for example, which poops/pees alcohol (as much as you can consider a fungus to do either of those things).
I think it actually says “Opression Chipmunks”…but one rodent’s as good as another…
Are you telling me that Cyrillic is authentic, Alternate Steve?
That it appears to be.
Scrooge McDuck was the first against the wall when the revolution came. Bourgeois scum.
I fired the first shot myself.
…perhaps you’ve…heard of me?
Ha being Russian, 25 yo and spending half of my life here and there this is an appropriate representation of every subway kiosk. Tho the best knockoff was Winnie the Pooh
I would totally wreck that DVD stand with money. I love cultural divergent crap like that.
I wonder if I should feel weird for owning a 4 DVD set of classic Soviet propaganda cartoons. (Incidentally, the author of Mister Twister owes his life to Stalin having been a fan of it, and omitting him from the Party’s list of artists to purge while going over the gathered names.)
I didn’t know the Russian entertainment business was so far ahead of ours. It takes most of the whole first season before we get bad shows cancelled (if even then). We can’t let ourselves fall behind and have to close the bad-show-cancellation gap! God willing, we will prevail in peace and freedom from fear and in true health through the purity and essence of our natural fluids. God bless you all.
That’s why I only drink rain water.
Yeah, it is a bit too difficult to get the pure grain alcohol away from Juniper while there’s still any left in the bottle.
Ahaha copyright information in Russian.
Who need train dragon? Donkey much more reliable, and easier to kill. Also easier to lie to family about killing.
10/10 would Watch!
Perhaps the best part of all this is that Russian DVD guy is part of D52.
Yes, there’s a cast page update.
I’ll admit, my second thought on seeing his name was wondering what the ‘W’ stands for.
The best part is the copyright on the bottom.
“Batgirl or The Spoiler”
What are we voting on?
Who should be the next cosplay?
Wow, took me far too long to get what Frigid was knocking off…
Featuring the hit single “Let It Run” by T.A.T.U.
I do wonder if heroes can see through masks when their eyes are white like that
Nono, is Director’s Cut. Now just Box Art.
Is directors concept box art without pesky movie to distract from glorious rendition.
For some reason responding to Tarra is glitchy today. As though her perfection is warping the fabric of the internet.
