A few words from Yulia:
This cartoon is an old school Russian cartoon and yes yes no subtitles, it’s all in Russian!
In my childhood I watched it about a hundred millions times. I just loved it!
Then it happens that when my oldest daughter Lira find herself an absolute passion for octopuses so I remembered about this animated story and showed it to my two little girls. And they loved it as much as I do! So here it is for you to enjoy…
Because it is in Russian, I will explain a little bit what is happening in the story so you can match it up with the pictures.
Once upon a time, there was a Family of octopuses with a lot of tiny and funny baby octopuses. They loves to change their body colour that making difficult for their parents to recognize them.
One day Misses Plaice invited their mom Misses Octopus to her place for a cup of tea so the young octopuses had to stay with their dad and what a challenge this is going to be for him! While the little ones were playing outside an other octopus family joined to them. The little octopuses were all mixed up and the two dads couldn’t figure out which ones were theirs.
Finally they decided to wait for the mothers to come back because in the end moms always know who are their kids.

They lived there for 5 years and afterwards in a few of other places abroad for a short period of time with their second little girl Dinara.
