Can't wait until 12-14-12?

Where it's not Ranger related. Rankin Bass, Bakshi, PJ, or independent. If it's not specifically ranger related, let's talk movies (or TV)!

Can't wait until 12-14-12?

So this may be old news, but given the release of The Hobbit trailer it's made a resurgence. In 1984 the Soviet Union aired a version of the tale, in an imaginative and shoestring budget style. Story is here, with links to video clips. You can also view Russian artwork from a 1976 edition of the book through this link if you want to avoid the NSFW Englishrussia site ads.

And hey, the dwarves in this one all have beards and hoods!

I am now ruined for the PJ version lol What a charming production! I liked it, actually, great dance number with the plates, and the axes actually were pretty cool. Thanks for posting!
