* WorldOfChaos: A crow keeps becoming a dog, then a cow, then a crow again. The setting keeps alternating between temperate forest, tropical forest and a stadium. A pound of cheese fits in an airmail envelope. And a janitor hatches out of an ostrich egg.

A soviet [[{{Claymation}} claymation]] animated short made in 1981 by AleksandrTatarskiy. It's divided into three unrelated segments: "Picture", "Game" and "Or maybe, or maybe...".

The last segment, that gave the name to the entire short, and the most remembered, is a parody on Aesop's fable ''The Fox and the Crow'' (more specifically Ivan Krylov's version). The narrators try to tell the fable, but keep confusing things. The visuals reflect the resulting story. Available online with subtitles on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUwsju-qVFg Youtube]].

Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfThree: There are 3 versions of every misremembered detail: crow-dog-cow, fox-ostrich-janitor. Except that the mermaid and a hippo replace ostrich and cow in 1 scene each. Also the fox entices the crow with 3 prizes.

* VisualPun: Krylov's version of the fable deliberately didn't mention how did the crow get the cheese[[note]]other poets' versions that did, attracted ire of courtiers, who thought the fable implied their crimes[[/note]], it only said "God has sent". In the cartoon a narrator [[StealthPun doesn't mention God]], but 2 cherubs deliver an airmail envelope.

!!This short provides examples of:

* AudienceParticipation
* BrickJoke: The grandmother from one of the previous episodes breifly shows up to hit the pillow
* CherubicChoir: children are there as an audience, so they laugh, interrupt the narrators and even make their own changes to the story.
* [[InteractiveNarrator InteractiveNarrators]]: The narrators apologize for forgetting details of the original fable and argue among themselves and with the audience
* LostAesop or possibly a SpoofAesop: original story is an actual [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fox_and_the_Crow_(Aesop) Aesop's fable]]. Of course, since narrators completely forgot what it was about, and are making the whole thing up as they go, the final aesop has absolutely nothing to do with original whatsoever.
