Soyuzmultfilm Snow Queen Reindeer

The Hollywood Reporter notes efforts by Russia’s Soyuzmultfilm animation studio to dub its library of cartoons into foreign languages for sale abroad, specifically targeting the Chinese and Indian markets as the most promising prospects. The studio was founded in 1936 and was the Soviet Union’s main cartoon studio until the fall of the Soviet empire, exporting many of their animated productions in Eastern Europe. The studio’s TV series Smeshariki has already been exported internationally as Kikoriki (airing on the CW network in the United States and Treehouse TV in Canada), and their 1957 adaptation of The Snow Queen remains very highly regarded (if still unrestored or remastered) among animation aficionados.

Last pup of a dying planet, a young German Shepherd is rocketed to Earth, where he is bombarded by cosmic gamma rays emitted by a radioactive spider. Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu. Donning battle armor fashioned from spilled chemicals splashed by lightning, he becomes the Sensational Shield of Sequential Art ACE THE BATHOUND! Look, it sounds a lot better than the truth. Born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens at 3 and then New Jersey at 10. Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs. Shares the above with a beautiful, wonderful, and incredibly understanding wife named Frances (who, thankfully, participates in most of my silly hobbies) and a large furry dog named Brownie (who, sadly, does not).
