Murzilka na Sputnike (The Pilot of Sputnik) (1964)


This was a set of postcards with color scenes of cels from the 1960 animated film "Murzilka na Sputnike." The movie was written by Lev Arkadiev. The art was by Znamenski and Boris Stepantsev. It is a lovely (and rare) tribute to Soviet Space promotion among  children. The great space-age cartoon is set in 2060 (100 years in the future). It is as much fun as an undiscovered Warner Bros. cartoon and this card set led me to it.
