Winnie the Poohski?

Under the category of "I couldn't make this up if I tried" may I present several Russian animated cartoons from the late 1960s and early 1970s staring Winnie Pooh and Piglet.

Yes... Russian animation staring your favourite cartoon bear. The first example shows us that Piglet carries a gun, the second ponders deep philosophical thoughts on the nature of existence and the protocols of visiting friends, and the third (part 1 and part 2) introduces Eeyore.

Watching these videos is a surreal experience but well worth it. They present a slightly different way of looking at the characters you thought you knew.
