A fisherman catches a talking goldfish from the sea. An ironic adaptation of the verse-poem by A. S. Pushkin.

This is at least the third animated adaptation made of this fairy tale; earlier ones were made in 1937 and in 1950. This one is by far the shortest, and the most ironically self-aware.

The first video above is sharper, but has a logo in the upper right.
