Masha and the Bear
Masha is depicted as a precocious, happy, kind, and mischievous little girl, while the bear is a fatherly retired circus performer that tries to keep Masha out of trouble but often ends up the unintended victim of her mischief. There are a number of supporting characters in the series, including Masha’s cousin, a penguin adopted by the Bear, a young panda cub who is the Bear’s cousin, a tiger that worked with the bear in the circus, and a female bear that is the object of the bear’s affections, along with a rabbit, squirrels and hedgehogs, two wolves who live near the bear’s house, and a pig, goat, and dog who live in Masha’s front yard. Masha, her cousin and Father Frost are the only characters who speak. The others communicate through pantomime or wordless sounds.
