Eastern Bloc Cartoons: Krtek/Krteček (The Mole/Little Mole)

[x]

"Krtek was first to be seen in 1956 in Prague, when Zdeněk Miler wanted to create a children’s cartoon about how flax is processed. Miler wanted the cartoon to be understood in every country of the world, so he decided to use his daughters as voice actors, reducing the speech to short non-figurative exclamations in order to express the mole’s feelings and world perception. They also became the bottleneck of the creation process as they were the ones who got to see the whole film first, thus Miler was able to decide whether the message of the movie was able to get to children or not.”
