A 1981 film (Тайна третьей планеты in Russian), produced by the famous Creator/{{Soyuzmultfilm}} studio in Moscow and based on the ''Literature/AliceGirlFromTheFuture'' books by Creator/KirBulychev. Stars the voice of Olga Gromova, the first person ever to play Alisa.

In it, Alisa and her father Professor Selesnyov and his friend the Captain travel all over space in the 22nd century, searching for rare animals to bring back to the Moscow zoo. Through their intergalactic travels they pick up increasingly bizarre creatures and eventually become tangled into a criminal conspiracy involving a talking bird. That's about all there is to get plotwise-- most of the time's focused on the surreal, psychedelic Peter Max-inspired world.

Two English versions were released; one oddly enough with Creator/KirstenDunst as the voice of Alisa, and the other released as Baryshnikov's collection of "favorite stories". Also there is an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTxIp_pMOk4 English fansub on YouTube]]. Two NES games were released.

* BigEater: Gromozeka devours an entire roast chicken in one bite.
* BizarreAlienBiology: An LSD box on spider legs, a balloon man, birds that can fly in space and multiarmed Gromozeka
** Gromozeka drinks valerian extract in large quantities (possibly {{justified}} by his size)
* BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord: Jolly U gets downright offended when Kim refers to him as a bandit
** "We're not ''bandits''! We're noble pirates."
* ConvectionShmonvection: When Jolly U's [[RayGun blaster]] melts in his hand do to a well aimed shot from [[spoiler: Kim]] he merely shakes the molten metal off his hand like its a minor nuisance.
* CarryingACake: Kolya's grandmother wants the crew to deliver a [[GiantFood "little" cake]] to Aldebaran. The cake is about the size of an arm chair.
** Zelyony: "And that's called a ''little'' cake?!"
* CriminalDoppelganger: [[spoiler: Glot poses as Doctor Verkhovtsev and is pursued by the Ushans for destroying the govorun birds]]
* CyanidePill: [[spoiler:{{Subverted}} Glot chomps down on one when his cover is blown. However Jolly U informs the crew that he's faking.]]
* TheCaptain: Captains Kim and Buran. Zelyony would be as well, hadn't he been such an [[TheEeyore Eeyore]].
** Poloskov in the original (Zelyony was an engineer), who is also a significant character in a larger Bulychev milieu.
* CasualInterstellarTravel: Characters effortlessly hop between star systems, the Govorun birds and Gromozeka don't even need ships.
* TheCavalryArrivesLate: Gromozeka flies in brandishing a weapon in each of his six arms, including a sword and a [[RayGun laser]] submachinegun. Its a shame he's too late.
* ConMan: PlayedWith. In the rare animal market there is an Ushan selling invisible fish. Prof. Seleznyov thinks its a scam, but Alisa believes him and he gives her an [[HatOfPower invisibility hat]]. It works.
* DontCallMeSir: Selesnyov much prefers to be called "Professor" rather than "Captain", because he isn't. He's the head of the expedition and calls the shots, but he doesn't command their ship.
* DramaticUnmask: "Come on imposter, show us your true face!"
* TheEeyore: Captain Zelyony, who has since became a quintessential pessimist in Russian SF.
* EmotionalBruiser: Gromozeka gets offended easily, and is quite disappointed when his rescue comes too late.
* EverythingsBetterWithCows: Skleess is a normal cow... with wings!
%%* FutureMusic
%%* GentleGiant
* HatOfPower: Alisa gets an {{invisibility}} hat from an Ushan selling invisible fish
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: When two robots intercept Seleznyov and Alisa on their way from the ship Basov walks around the corner and surprises the assailants from behind. The robots turn around and fire their blasters, missing at point blank range. {{Justified}} since the robots were remote controlled and the operator may have been legitimately surprised by Basov.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Captain Kim is able to melt the bad guys' blasters out of their hands with well aimed shots
* LatexPerfection: [[spoiler: How Glot impersonates doctor Verkhovtsev throughout the film]]
* MechaMooks: Remote controlled robots toting [[RayGun blasters]] dressed in black SpaceClothes
%%* MindScrew
* MistookTheDominantLifeform: Happens to Professor Selesnyov on an interstellar market. He approaches a humanoid shape made of floating orbs to ask him how much the bird he is asking costs... only for the bird to state that '''she''' is the one selling '''him'''.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Gromozeka weilds a weapon in each arm when he quite literally swoops in in to rescue the crew at the end.
* MythologyGag: In the books it is stated that "the govorun bird is not known for its mind and intelligence", in the movie the bird states "the govorun bird is known for its mind and intelligence"
* NoKillLikeOverkill: Gromozeka flyes in at the end wielding a sabre, an axe, a mauser, and a laser submachinegun.
* PintSizedKid: Alisa. Either she's too short for her 8, or both Zelyony and Professor are as tall as NBA players.
** Most likely Selesnyov is unusually tall since he bumps his head on a doorframe through which Zelyony walks through normally.
* PluckyGirl: Alisa, certainly.
* PragmaticAdaptation: The cartoon takes a ''great'' liberty with the original novel, but that's to be expected -- Soviet animation was never intended to make feature films and even miniseries were a rarity, so they had to heavily compress the original material.
* SeadogBeard: Captain Zelyony sports a great one.
* SceneryPorn: The third planet is beautiful with lush greenery, alien plants, alien formations, and purple mountain ranges.
* SpacePirates: The stock villains of any Creator/KirBulychev story.
