abstract

This article analyses the image of sport in Soviet animated artworks produced from 1969 to 1991. Cartoons for children in Soviet culture had an important educational value. Positive characters became role models for many generations of children. Sport has repeatedly turned out to be the topic for the plots of this type of art. However, it is during these years that we can observe an increase in the number of animation works on the topic of sports. The rise of the number of studios, orders and funding from the state influenced the growth of works on the topic of sports. Moreover, the Olympic Games were held in Moscow in 1980.
