[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCKg1lURSvg An Axe (1994)]]: Based on a short story ''Brother Axe'' by Hovhannes Tumanyan. A village had no woodcutting tools and people were getting firewood in most primitive ways -- using their hands and teeth. A passing woodcutter gave them an axe. But the villagers didn't know how to use it, maimed themselves and destroyed their village.
* AmusingInjuries: Like an axe wedged in a man's scull. The man is still alive and doesn't even feel much pain.
* AndIMustScream: People frozen inside ice blocks seem to be alive and waiting for spring to thaw them. Well, still better than frozen to death.
* DarkHumour: People get maimed, probably freeze to death, are left homeless in the middle of the winter... Yet it's so over the top, you will smile if not laugh.
* HappyEnding: If you can call that setting your village on fire to get warm.
* NoOSHACompliance: People don't know how to use an axe. Or how to handle hot objects in flammable houses.
* RealitySubtext: The cartoon was made in the early 1990s, when independent Armenia was suffering from the most severe fuel shortages and Soviet-era infrastructure was falling apart.
* TheUnintelligible: There are no words in the cartoon, just exclamation of joy and pain. Thus no need to translate the dialogs.

* NotQuiteBackToNormal: Sort of. After the boy turns back from a fish to a man, he's dressed in his old clothes instead of the clothes the wizard gave him.

* FreezeFrameBonus:
** When sea king turns into a rocket, one can see "no smoking" (in english) and "13" written on the rocket (more likely a reference to 13 being a "devil's dozen" rather that to [[DudeNotFunny Apollo 13]] practically unknown in SovietUnion).
** When the boy transforms from fish to human, he quickly "evolves" through monkey and stone age caveman. The wizard "evolves" through a [[LizardFolk dinosaur]].
