Eastern European Animation
Eastern European Animation refers to Animated Shows from Eastern Europe, to include Russian and the now defunct Soviet Union, as well as most other ex-socialist European countries. Actually, classifying these as "shows" is very innacurate; some of them are features, some are actual shows; most of them are isolated shorts. In fact, there were no animated shows in Soviet Union; those that look like ones are series of loosely connected shorts, with long (sometimes over 10 years) intervals between "releases". Overall, network and medium seem to matter much less in Eastern European culture, at least to average viewer—in part because there was only one thing to watch for so many years—so not making distinction between features, shorts and series on this page is justified. However, the post-Fall era animation is more westernized in formal aspects, with a proper division into features, shows and shorts.
