High-res 2nd half here: http://bit.ly/c2BNvs 1st half here: http://bit.ly/aukqWk I used those two srces to make this & removed the watermarks. It may still be missing ~25 seconds (likely just the credits). Norshteyn spent 1.5 yrs making this intro/outro for Good Night, Children, a popular Russian show for young children to watch before bedtime. Part 1 would air before each show, part 2 after. It accompanied the show in 2000 & was taken off in summer 2001; the show moved to a new channel but the (C) for the sequence didn't. It was 81st on a list of the 150 best animated films: http://bit.ly/aOEwVc But reactions in Russia were largely negative; program director V. Prasolova said: "Norshteyn is a famous artist, but he does not make good into/outro sequences. We get calls & letters every day about this sequence from people who tell us that it is terrible, that it is dark, that children do not want to watch our program." http://bit.ly/q0mcqk Credits here: http://bit.ly/pPAuXZ
