чебурашка

One of the things I learned about when I started dating my wife was the character of чибурашка.

Vinnie Poo speaks very quickly and is hard to understand, but this may be a good practice to listen to and hopefully start to catch parts you understand since they speak somewhat more slowly.

It includes English subtitles as well to help.

Чебурашка и Крокодил Гена is such a good show!! As a native Russian speaker, I strongly recommend watching it! :)

On my birthday, my father in law sang me the birthday song from it. When I looked up the translation, I found one of my favorite musical lyrics ever...

Прилетит вдруг волшебник В голубом вертолете И бесплатно покажет кино. С днем рожденья поздравит И, наверно, оставит Мне в подарок пятьсот «эскимо».

Something to the effect of: "A wizard in a light blue helicopter will take me to see free movies, then he will tell me happy birthday and probably give me hundreds of eskimo pies."

Whenever someone asks me what I want for my birthday, it's been my answer for the last 10 years. Most of the time it leaves them amused if not slightly confused.

Чебурашка is WONDERFUL. Карлсон и малыш (Karlson and the Boy) is another great classic Soviet мультфильм (cartoon): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HizwOPY79-s

Edit: On the last one the subtitles aren't in sync with the video very well.
