Masha and the Bear
Russia





Introduction


“Masha and the Bear,” which is produced by Moscow-based Animaccord Animation Studio, is loosely based on a children’s folk story of the same name. The show, which debuted in 2009, relays the adventures of a mischievous little girl named Masha and a retired circus bear who keeps her out of trouble.


Masha is an energetic and curious little girl who lives in an old train station in the forest and loves to play with everyone she meets.

Bear is a warm, fatherly figure that does his best to guide Masha and keep her from harm. Though he enjoys his quiet time alone, he misses those moments when Masha is not around.


Together with a rag-tag group of friendly animals that have made the forest their home, Masha and the Bear entertains adults and children alike, teaching viewers about creativity, loyalty and true friendship.
