Russian cartoon using Pushkin's text for Golden Cockerel

"The story's false, but in it lies
some truth, seen only by inward eyes"

Thus ends this 30 minute telling of the Golden Cockerel story - "Zolotoy Petushok" - based on Pushkin.

There are a number of similarities with Ratmansky's 2016 version for ABT in terms of staging, characterization, and costuming. I don't know if he watched this as a kid (it came out in 1967, he was born in 1968) or if these details are in the Pushkin story.
