Soviet Cartoon “Nu Pogodi” [“Well,Just You Wait!”]

Written by Vadim on October 20, 2009 – 7:06 pm -

“Nu Pogodi”, often translated as “Well, Just You Wait!” and “I’ll Get You” is a beloved Soviet cartoon, similar in style to Tom & Jerry and Roadrunner. The main characters are a Hare “Zayats”, which is constantly being preyed upon by the Wolf (Volk) who resorts to comically diabolical schemes. Several other minoir characters are also introduced throughout the series.

Unlike Roadrunner, Nu Pogodi places a greater emphasis on various real-life situations and locations. The characters are anthropomorphically drawn, with human-shaped bodies. Unlike Tom & Jerry, The Wolf and Hare often walk on two feed and occasionally converse with each other.

20 Episodes were made between 1969 and 2006 – 13 between 1969 to 1980, and 7 between 1984 and 2006.

Following the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1990, this cartoon received its first exposure to many Western audiences.
