    • Synopsis
    • Created by Soviet writer Eduard Uspensky, Cheburashka along with his friend Gena the Crocodile are the iconic characters of the animation series started in 1969. The cute 'animal unknown to science' found in a crate of oranges who taught the world how to be friends became a hit in the 1970s: as a popular character, he even had his own TV-show in Sweden. He was also chosen as the official mascot for the Russian Olympic Team in 2000s.
