This clip is from a 1985 short film directed by Andrei Khrjanovsky and it is based on a poem by A. A. Milne, and narrated by Arcady Raikin, one of Russia's most renowned comedians. For Khrjanovsky, the poem illustrated how a simple human desire can create absolutely irrational problems, out of proportion to the original desire. Soviet censors suspected Khrjanovsky was criticizing the country's lack of butter.

This film can be watched in its entirety on the Masters Of Russian Animation DVD set - an extraordinary collection of Russia's most important animated short films by Russia's world renowned directors.
