Soviet Winnie-the-Pooh with matching stamp!

Winnie-the-Pooh is a 1969 Soviet animated film trilogy by Soyuzmultfilm directed by Fyodor Khitruk. The film is based on chapter one in the book series by A. A. Milne. Khitruk studied the original book by Milne first in English and only later in Russian, translated by Boris Zakhoder who became a co-writer of the first two parts of the trilogy. Khitruk had not seen the Disney adaptations while working on his own. He created the prototype drawings of the characters together with Vladimir Zuikov.

There's four beautiful stamps on this postcard, but most important for me is matching Winnie-the-Pooh stamp, from set Characters of Domestic Cartoons, issued on 3.12.2012.

Thank you so much, Natalia!
