Krinklebein’s Poor Russian

May 28th, 2010 · No Comments

We’re still in northern Michigan with the Grand Empress, and you’re hopefully prepping for a raucous three-day weekend. As you pack or purchase beer, enjoy the sonic stylings of a talking fish and his feline arch-nemesis—one of Microkhan Jr.’s favorites. It really is a fine piece of animation, save for the fact that Mr. Krinklebein’s Russian leaves much to be desired. We have it on good authority that his phrase means “Hat in the Hat,” rather than “Cat in the Hat.” But thumbs up for making the effort in the midst of the Cold War—this scene was probably considered somewhat shocking back in 1971, when Russian was the tongue of the enemy.
