Soviet Animator Kotenochkin Dies

Soviet animator Vyacheslav Kotenochkin, creator of the world-famous slapstick cartoon NU, POGODI, died on November 20, 2000 after a battle with a long illness. He was 74-years-old. NU, POGODI, which screened in theaters around the globe, chronicled the misadventures of a hungry, dimwitted wolf that constantly chased a wide-eye rabbit. The Roadrunner-esque cartoons always ended with the wolf shouting, "Nu, pogodi! (Just you wait!)" Up until his death, Kotenochkin served as the co-chairman of the "Gold Fish" International Children's Cartoon Festival and was president of the Moscow animation house Soyuzmultfilm.
