* BadassGrandpa: Sidorov's grandfather appears to be a war veteran given his cap and images of him charging on a horse with a sword in hand. Perhaps a veteran of Red October or World War II given his age.

%%* * SpoiledBrat: Sidorov VovaVova is shown bossing around his family as even a toddler once he understands how much they'll bend over for him.
* TakeThat: Criticisms of Soviet inefficiency aside, there is clear spite for western culture turning Soviet youth into lazy bums, given that Sidorov has an interest in rock music and jeans as a teen.

Soviet animated short by EduardNazarov, released c. 1985. Adapted after the epynomous verse by EduardUspensky. In some strange way it works both as a propaganda piece about the Red Army that straightens up any young fellow and makes a man out of him and at the same time shows how The Army is just as prone to soviet bureaucracy and ineffectuality as many other departments of state.
