Cold-war Christmas Classic: The Russian Boy, 1959

Since we won't be doing a "Mr. Punch's Puzzles" this week (as I'm rather a busy boy), I thought I'd share (or share again) something appropriately (or inappropriately) zany with you.

I was introduced to this animated short from Russia at Christmastime last year and it is now amongst the other beautifully horrid and bizarre cartoons which top my list of things to watch over the holiday.

It's known as "The Christmas Visit," "The New Year's Visit" and "The Russian Boy," depending on the translation and who is distributing it.

It defies explanation in a variety of ways.
