Synopsis A small mysterious brown hairy creature with enormous ears pops out of an orange crate. It is not a bear, nor is it a monkey... The creature itself has no idea what it is, so it is named Cheburashka. With nowhere to go, it occupies a telephone cabin, in a city with a zoo where Gena, the solitary crocodile, works. Cheburashka replies to Gena’s ad seeking friends and they soon become inseparable. Even though the selfish Shapoklyak and his trained rat attempt to spread meanness in the city, Gena and Cheburashka will help all those they can, whether finding friends, learning to walk on tightropes to join a circus or reuniting an old magician with his granddaughter. Makoto Nakamura rediscovers and refreshes this children's literature character created in the sixties by Eduard Uspensky and made into a movie in the 70s by Roman Kachanov (who worked with Yuri Norstein) and which was the Russian team’s mascot at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games.
