In 1988 the creative team formed an independent Pilot Studio. They had a falling-out with Uspensky and had to rename their iconic characters from "Kolobki Brothers" to "Pilot Brothers". In TheNineties, a sequel in the form of six short cartoons was made, and in the late 1990s and early 2000s, a video game series based off the cartoons was created, available on PC and iOS.




* InNameOnly: This cartoon started as an adaptation of Uspensky's books aimed at children about a pair of not-quite-human (more like living bread loafs) not-quite-policemen Kolobok and Bulkin and a sequel to an earlier StopMotion series made by a different team. Suffice to say Chief and Colleague have nothing in common with them, other than being short and unarmed.



* RunningGag: Colleague spitting out fish, the crow carrying away whatever it was sitting on.

** Not only that, but the time, even time of day, is never told explicitly in the cartoon - even if the clock is clearly visible. All characters use an expression "N hours".

* AmateurSleuth: Kolobki - they know their stuff well, but do not seem to be tied to the police, and private enterprise was outlawed in the USSR.


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoBadassLongcoat: The zoo guard has one, and Kolobki themselves also qualify, since their coats are long relative to their small height.

Added DiffLines:

* CaptainObvious: Chief tends to do it, the more profound and famous example being (when Colleague is being late from the assignement): "Either something is wrong, or it's one or the other".

* EgomaniacHunter: Karbofos, sort of. He is an animal trader, not a hunter, so he has to capture his game alive - but he's most definitely a bastard about it.

The plot kicks off [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn somewhere in the USSR]]. Deep at night, the two investigators named Brothers Kolobki hear a loud thump, which they [[ItsProbablyNothing promptly dismiss as nothing]]. The next morning, they're staring dumbfounded as four huge holes in their rooftop. The smarter of two partners, Chief (Шеф; translit. "Shef") figures out that the holes are actually elephant footprints. And sure enough, the local newspaper has an article about the disapperance of the rare striped elephant from the city zoo. Chief and his partner, literally named Colleague (Коллега; translit. "Kollega") embark on an investigation to find out just what is happening in their sleepy backwater city.

* TheCameo: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adventures_of_Captain_Vrungel Captain Vrungel]] makes two appearances, first buying airplane tickets and then going through customs at the airport. The reason is that Aleksandr Tatarskiy worked on the ''Adventures of Captain Vrungel'' as well as ''Investigation Held by Kolobki''.
