The world’s all-time best animation according to Japanese experts “Hedgehog in the Fog” came only second in the list of Russia’s “golden hundred” cartoons, giving way to Alexander Nazarov’s work “Once Upon a Dog.”

The list was announced at the opening of the 17th Open Animation Festival in Suzdal and was to mark 100 years of Russia’s cartoon industry.

The Russian version of “Winnie-the-Pooh” was named the third greatest cartoon, RIA Novosti reported.


‘Hedgehog in the Fog’

Yury Norshtein’s masterpiece “Hedgehog in the Fog” was named No.1 in the All Time Animation Best 150 in Japan and Worldwide in 2003, but failed to top the recent list, put together by Russian experts.

The recent list was put together by 100 Russian animation films directors, artists and critics, and the full list featured 600 works, RIA Novosti reported.

Boris Stepantsev’s “Karlsson-On-The-Roof” and Alexander Tatarsky’s surreal “Last Year's Snow Was Falling” beloved by many generations of Russians was placed together with less famed works.

Fyodor Khitruk’s “The Story of a Crime,” which won The Golden Gates Prize in San Francisco in 1962 has also been listed, although it clearly doesn’t enjoy as much popularity as Vladimir Popov’s story of a polar cub “Umka.”

The Open animation film festival in Suzdal was launched by Russian and Belorussian animators back in 1996 and has been the country’s only professional event for local cartoon making professionals.
