Man, a lot of people in the youtube comments have really fond memories of watching this as a kid.
Whoops! Not necessarily meant as a reply, but this probably would've been the "knock-off" one we rented because something like the Lion King or Aladdin were always checked out, but lucky for me they were Kimba and Thief and the Cobbler: they just looked as if they were knock-offs. Still never seen the Disney ones. This looks like shit, but I could see the 10 year old girl-me liking it for some reason.

It's amazing how the time before the Bolshevik Revolution is romanticized as if it was some sort of golden age. It's kind of like how everyone manages to paint Cuba as being some kind of haven of corruption and what have you while not even knowing who Batista was. I suppose it could be due to the weird love affair libertopians have with feudalism.
Oh, well. Serfs up, I guess.
That's why I never really liked Dr. Zhivago. Gorgeous set pieces and some good scenes, but it felt like it was one shade of subtlety from Ayn Rand. Yes, the biggest tragedy in the Russian revolution was one ridiculously wealthy family being forced to share their mansion with dirty poor people who made it all dirty GOD they're so poor and dirty.
When I first saw Dr. Zhivago as a kid, my mother spent the whole movie complaining about how the doctor was an asshole who ditched his wife and kids for some bimbo. That swayed me toward disliking it even before I noticed how it portrayed the Annoying Poor.
Goofinov, you're the laziest Bolshevik in all of Russia!
This reminds me of the Animaniacs episode with Rasputin.
