For adults. The hippopotamus came to the singing-master but all attemps were useless – his pupil didn’t have voice and as tone-deaf. So the pupil swallowed his teacher and sang with a marvelous voice of his teacher.

Commentaries and bibliography
For his first film as a director, Anatoly Petrov used his multiplier skills to the full. Characters - a man and a hippopotamus - with soft shadows that give the impression of a three-dimensional figure, move smoothly on the screen, showing the characteristic of plasticity of each.
