Top Ten Soviet childhood
• Top Ten Soviet childhood
Each of us had his own favorite toys, movies and ice cream varieties. Today I will try to recreate the Top Ten Soviet child who lived in the era of stagnation and perestroika. Of course, all this will be a bit subjective, because not all children, even in my environment, liked to be "like everyone else". But I still try to call the hits of our childhood.
So, let's begin...
Favorite books of my generation, I would call "Dunno on the Moon". Of course, the children (and adults) read then everything - from Georgian folk tales to Saltykov-Shchedrin. Swallowed and Fenimore Cooper, and Dumas, and Pikul. However, Russian hobbit adventures of Dunno in "lunar America" was a hit. It is only then we learned that "Dunno on the Moon" - a lightweight version of "Inhabited Island" by Strugatsky brothers. It is only then we realized that capitalism of the 1990s - a copy of the harsh lunar-fairy reality. And then it was thrilling action with pursuits, misadventures and quite adult humor. And what kind of name-!
Los Poganos (Los Palmos), Panopticon (sounding almost Connecticut), a bunch of olgarhov - big Bradley (from the "nonsense" and "bedlam"). Names Skuperfild, Spruts, Julio - a fun read, even now. Shop big and small goods, Santika (from centimes) ferting (pound sterling). In general, the book is at all times and at all ages.
Favorite movie I could not choose, but it will not be wrong if I call your favorite film heroine Alice Seleznev. It was she who collects the highest number of comments, if it comes to the Soviet-detstkom cinema. Neither kino_devochek - neither Masha Startseva or Malvina, or Little Red Riding Hood did not use such a wildly popular. As one father said, "What is more she ?! Alisa Selezneva - that was the heroine! ". A beautiful girl, totally devoid of affectation. Nerdy and at the same time - not zubrilka. She loves animals, knows how to make friends, brave, jump over the fence ... This benchmark girlfriend for anyone - even for a boy, even for girls. Boys fall in love, the girls wanted to be like, or at least - to be near as Julia Gribkova. Despite the fact that the film "Guest from the Future" was at that time less popular than "The Adventures of Electronics", but nevertheless it is Alisa Selezneva it became nostalgic symbol of the late movie. And not Syroezhkin and his iron clone.
Call generation song turned out to be difficult - in kindergartens and pioneer activities sang one of mafonom plowshare other - quite the opposite. But there was one song that pleased withdrawn children and adolescents, even at music lessons in school. It's just a song from the soundtrack to "The Adventures of Electronics" - "Winged swing". This music is loved almost everything. Moreover, the presence thereof in the girls' songbook sludge was not considered. (I remind you that in our songbooks was no place for a children's song, officious-Soviet speaker, as well as all legacy, for example, the popular hits of 1920-1960-ies).
But the "Winged swing" could very fit, especially the third verse, which was not included in the film, but who later sang choruses pioneer radio. Even I, in life listening to English-speaking disco group, was very fond of these same swing.
The most a hit cartoon of my generation, I would call "The Mystery of the Third Planet". It is clear that we all loved cartoons, but would not puppet. Many of you will be called and Vrungel and "Around the World in 80 days", but for some reason, "Secret ..." the most actively discussed at recess. Maybe, because then in vogue it was fantastic. Maybe because it was a long cartoon (but it does not show how Vrungel). An interesting detail - when I bought a calendar with a picture of this cartoon, I was able to exchange them very beneficial to virtually all other types of calendars (who does not love, he does not understand). characters replicas were taken away on the quote. "Bird Govorun different intelligence and wit ... And if you want, I'll knock? He will turn purple, speckled ... Do not believe him! This swallowing the planet Katruk! "
From the mass spectacles, I would pick newsreel "Jumble". Usually before a children's session shows exactly it - is most liked much more than a collection of informative than "I want to know everything." Of course, there were boys and girls "with glasses" who loved it intelligent newsreel, but I'm smart did not apply and, therefore, loved it "Jumble" - Adventures otvyaznyh Losers and their long-suffering parents, funny stories in the classroom and in everyday life, incidents teen love and friendship.
And what sort of character types were! Goodbye, Bob! ... Where are you, timurovtsi?! ... Now you do not Bulavkin and champion in weight lifting! Some scenes now look outdated - modern children do not understand who these timurovtsi and that for manipulation holds a schoolboy with a book, "The Three Musketeers" (about the trash), but some are still alive and relevant.
The favorite children's brands (? Or it's) age, I would call the Olympic Bear - 80. It was unrealistic popular person - with him were T-shirts, badges and chocolates. His izobrazhanie adorned everything. Children tried to draw it, adults buy porcelain figurines. All cried when he flew at the close of the Olympics-80. Cheburashka, Murzilka, cat Matroskin, heroes of "Just you wait!" - all of them at once paled next to the Olympic Bear. I remember that the symbol of the Festival, 85 - slurred girl Katyusha - not particularly popular. Many have even forgotten what she looked like, but the Bear-80 is still the symbol of the stable and orderly life under Brezhnev.
An undoubted hit of our childhood is imported chewing gum (or zhuvachka). Best of all, of course, any fruit, from the category bubble-Gamow. She smelled fabulously, it is long and tasty chew, it was a symbol of the good life. It could be inflated. She was a candy wrapper, and if you're lucky, and inserts. They are always depicted cartoon-komiksovoy characters. They were collected, they changed their ... stealing. They could even sell. As in the adult world, prized chewing gum, produced in the cap. countries, particularly the US and - the Japanese. Japan was hit by itself - there was advanced technology and fashion calendars with beautiful asians. Chewing gum from the social. countries, especially the Soviet not appreciated. Yes, they chew, but they took place, and what should take chewing gum in a reasonable person's life ...
Now gradually move on to the toys. It is clear that the girls loved the GDR-ovskih dolls, and boys - cars and lunohodiki. They all wanted the railway, but it was not only expensive but also scarce. Moreover - for some reason it is quickly bored. Well, goes back and forth, well, flash German houses. Well? But soft toys, it seems, was loved by all. They accompanied our lives since childhood - favorite bears, bunnies, puppies. Some children were even imported foxes and panthers. These toys are worth quite expensive - import and completely realistic fox (for example) was bought for 14 rubles. But domestic proteins leverets with cartoon appearance were available to all. With soft toys could be sleeping in an embrace, with them you can play in the school and to the hospital, they were the best gift classmate.
Now, move on to the spiritual sustenance that is, to the varieties of ice cream. Ice cream love, it seems, all the children. we loved the popsicle, "gourmet", "Borodino", and another round balls in ice-cream bowls before a session in the cinema. We did not like the classic ice cream for 48 cents - it seemed to us somehow tasteless and boring. Now the contrary, I like to just such kinds of ice cream - without hardship. But the grade was a hit, fruit and water for the cheap 7 cents. It was in the paper cups and wooden stick. Since it is rapidly melted (unlike oil-rich), more often it was sold for some deformed and wrinkled. But it does not bother anyone - we bought it in 5-6 pieces and happily ate hot pink ice, which is called the muck adults. But we did not believe them.
Among the drinks certainly takes the first place ... no, not even Pepsi-Cola and Fanta, and soda from the machine. Firstly, it was cheap - 3 pennies for water with syrup and 1 penny - for ordinary gas. water without filler. We specifically collected trohkopeechnye coins to try two of available flavor. True, there was diluted. So we learned to make double syrup - at first Machine gave a drop of apple or pear flavor, and then poured water. So, I had to catch a drop of syrup, and then skip the water. Then repeat the syrup. And then it turned out quite tolerable swipes. Secondly, it was on the street - between times, between the game. Eating and drinking on the street - a sacred thing for every child. At home or even at a party - not interested!
Of course, the children were very different - they are not going liners and preferred to listen to the music of Claude Debussy from Alfred Schnittke. I understand all this. Therefore, pre-prepared for the influx of ex-smart-children, who understood in their 3 years, I wanted to say, Tarkovsky, Fellini and considered past stage. I believe that these were. But I have tried to recreate the hits not only on their personal memories, but based on your comments as to Soviet themes.
