A brief annotation
Director Leonid Nosyrev made the animated film ‘Antoshka’ in 1969. The cartoon was released in the first issue of the children’s animated film series ‘Happy Merry-Go-Round’. Each issue of the series presented two or three picture cartoons. The plot of ‘Antoshka’ is based on a children’s song about a lazy boy. The author of the text is poet Yuri Entin. When he was young, Entin worked as a school teacher of history for a while, and one of his pupils became the prototype of the character Antoshka. The music to the song was written by composer Vladimir Shainsky. The song was first broadcast in the TV show ‘Good Morning’ that Entin and Shainsky applied to a few months later. The song was performed by children’s choir ‘Sputnik’.
