The 4nd volume of cartoons that have entertained both adults and children of Armenia for decades. Featuring the classic Shunn u Katun and other favorites. These cartoons were produced during the Soviet Era and the stories are a bit weightier than most western cartoons today.
In March of 1924, the Armenian film studio, Haykino, also known as Armenkino, starts operating in Yerevan. By the end of the 1920's Armenia has a well-equipped film studio with a large shooting pavilion that is later furnished with the necessary lighting and audio equipment. 1935 was a significant turning-point for Armenian cinema because of the creation of the first sound film, "Pepo." On one hand, this movie seems to encompass the experience of the silent film, but on the other hand, it considerably enlarges the scope of Armenian cinema. The action of the film goes far beyond the scope of the story, which tells of a rich man who corrupts a poor man's family. The noisy street, packed with the simple, hard-working population, is accurately reflected on the screen. The street is no longer a background but becomes an active participant, as it so appears today.
The first Armenian animation film appears in 1937, but it is not until 1967 that Armenian animation films are produced on a regular basis. Later, Armenian animation films gain worldwide recognition and stand forward for the originality of their expressive and musical solutions.
