[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCKg1lURSvg An Axe (1994)]]: Based on a short story ''Brother Axe'' by Hovhannes Tumanyan. A village had no woodcutting tools and people were getting firewood in most primitive ways -- using their hands and teeth. A passing woodcutter gave them an axe. But the villagers didn't know how to use it, maimed themselves and destroyed their village.

* AmusingInjuries: Like an axe wedged in a man's scull. The man is still alive and doesn't even feel much pain.

* RealitySubtext: The cartoon was made in the early 1990s, when independent Armenia was suffering from the most severe fuel shortages and Soviet-era infrastructure was falling apart.


* EvilIsCool: "I'll teach you to make storms, sink ships... You'll be rich, and happy".


* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs



* FridgeLogic: Okay, we realise that these shorts are fairy tales, but still: how come an obviously Soviet corrupt store manager can own a land and raise taxes? (Under Communism a private individual can't do these actions on his own; only the state can.)


* HowDoYouLikeThemApples: The three apples at the end for "those who listened and believed" is an allusion to the typical [[TheStinger ending]] of Armenian folktales.

* AndIMustScream: People frozen inside ice blocks seem to be alive and waiting for spring to thaw them. Well, still better than frozen to death.
* DarkHumour: People get maimed, probably freeze to death, are left homeless in the middle of the winter... Yet it's so over the top, you will smile if not laugh.
* HappyEnding: If you can call that setting your village on fire to get warm.
* NoOSHACompliance: People don't know how to use an axe. Or how to handle hot objects in flammable houses.
* RealitySubtext: The cartoon was made in the early 1990s, when independent Armenia was suffering from the most severe fuel shortages and Soviet-era infrastructure was falling apart.
* TheUnintelligible: There are no words in the cartoon, just exclamation of joy and pain. Thus no need to translate the dialogs.
