    ​2:13 Actually, it is the aurora australis, which is the southern counterpart (the South Pole) of the aurora borealis (the North Pole). 2:29 This is actually accurate to how penguin society works. The more pebbles you have, the more likely to find a mate, but also the more likely other penguins are going to steal from you, because it is easier and ruins competition. As such penguins like Adélie penguins steal stones constantly and can be fiercely territorial of their nest spots. 3:51-3:57-4:27 Toto and Lala are not being stupid, irritating, or contemptible, they are just strict, strict and kind actually, and act like normal Soviet parents so that Lolo does not become a spoiled brat. If you are from Russia it is pretty obvious, so it may be a cultural difference. 4:21 Lala said, "отстань пожалуйста!", which translates to "Please knock it off!" Then Lolo replies, "Why should I knock it off?" She responds, "Ну что за малыш!", which translates to "What a baby/kid!" It was a common phrase back in a day. Basically, it means a child that is hyperactive and asks a lot of questions. 4:50-7:25-8:03-12:29 The humans are supposed to be scary as you're seeing them through the penguin's eyes. As for the Polar Explorer, he is not scary at all, he is a geologist or scientist, really trustable for children actually. The reason why everyone thinks that he is creepy is because of his first close-up shot and the details in his face. 5:03-5:07-5:12 Toto severely punishes Lolo by spanking him, enraged that Lolo ran off, and that penguin is actually cross with Lolo for running off, as well, although he is not his son, and penguins actually don't have nipples. 5:42 Lolo actually says, "Don't be scared/afraid. My friend lives here!" No chickens were mentioned. Moreover, the Russian language simply doesn't have "chicken means coward" idioms. Here chickens are more associated with not being very smart than being a coward. The most likely reasons are: 1. They have crooked feet. 2. They like to dig with their feet which could remind our ancestors about writing. *3. Chickens are known for their stupidity in culture.* 5:59-12:33 The repeating animation. You said it yourself, this film is a collaboration with Japan. What are their animations infamous for? 10:04-10:09​ It’s probably just a patriarchy or something. A line of succession. Penguins know only that Lolo has an impressive record of surviving, so choosing him as leader when they need to survive is logical. Lolo did not lead the poachers to the other penguins, they found the penguins themselves. 13:00 The last part of the Polar Explorer's phrase was "...ему не до тебя..." His full line translates to "Right now, your penguin friend is too overwhelmed with changes in his live, and he can't even split his time with you..."

    You should check out some of the other soviet cartoons as well. There's quite a lot of interesting gems in there. Not to mention that USSR animation or Soyuzmultfilm(Союзмультфильм) had some creepy and obscure animations as well. I'd recommend giving their version of Jungle Book a try. It is far more brutal, compared to what disney did. Mostly because it sticks close to the original story.

    Sadly there was an American cartoon inspired by Anime, and I'm not talking about Avatar: The Last Airbender or the legend of Korra, this show was called ExoSquad witch you can watch on NBCUniversal streaming Service called Peacock for free under the kid's section. Despite its adult subjects like racism, slavery, and the harshness of war. And not afraid to kill off main characters. They even went kinda Game of Thrown like with their Second and last season. And sadly no one even remembers or cares nowadays. :(

    Wow, ok so there's is a animated movie called "The Pebble and the Penguin" from 1995 and there are a lot of scenes in that film that are seem to be taken from this story. It's just been cutesified, with added singing moments for that Disney feel. And the story revolves around an adult love story and a pretty pebble(yup), there is also this weird side story of the Rock Penguin (yup they befriend a rock penguin on a ship too) and how he wants to fly...even though penguins can't fly....it's a thing and it gets weird at the end. It also has some really lovely musical scores, that just seem grander then the film, has that same feel as the Disney's Hunchback. And then some that feel out of place like the weird villian song... Any who I highly reccomend checking it out and seeing those identical scenes, I would even say that this film, although much more 'Kid Friendly' has made those lion seal scenes so fucking scary, like I had nightmares about dark water after that film 😖
