Polish TV Company has selected some of the most liked animated films on Polish television that have been broadcasted since the 1960s. We titled this list ‘classic’ because each cartoon character has its own monument or sculpture erected in various cities around Poland.

Przygody Bolka i Lolka (distributed in English as Jym and Jam or Bennie and Lennie).

Przygody Bolka i Lolka (distributed in English as Jym & Jam or Bennie and Lennie).

#1 all-time favorite Polish cartoon was created by Władysław Nehrebecki and ran between 1962 and 1986 - quite enough to become classics. Bolek i Lolek is a music only cartoon devoid of any dialogues and words. Each new episode centers on two young brothers, one of which is tall and skinny while the other one is short and as clumsy as the situations they both go through sometimes. Funny, somewhat silly, and mostly outdoors adventures of Bolek i Lolek bring up the warmest childhood memories.


Reksio

Reksio

Piebald terrier Reksio isn’t lying about all day like his American colleague Snoopy dog but explores the surrounding world with his friends from the yard - cats, hens, dogs and children. Studio Filmów Rysunkowych - the same studio that produced Lolek i Bolek, released 65 episodes of Reksio throughout 1967-1990 and made the titular character Poland’s dog #1.


Koziołek Matołek (Matołek the Billy-Goat)

Koziołek Matołek (Matołek the Billy-Goat)

In 1969, Film Miniature Studio created animated mini-series Koziołek Matołek (1969-1971) based on the original 1933’s comic book by Kornel Makuszyńsk and Marian Walentynowicz. Matołek is a clumsy, naive, but highly determined goat who sets off on a trip to the town of Pacanow (a real town in Poland). Pacanow is rumored that they make nice goat shoes there and finding this town becomes an ultimate goal of Matolek’s quest.


The Adventures of Filemon the Cat

The Adventures of Filemon the Cat

Filemon is a lively white kitten with super-high level of curiosity while his elder friend Bonifacy is a typical lazy, but experienced tomcat who likes cozy nooks and sometimes teaches Filemon how to lead a proper ‘cat’s life’.. Both characters complete each other and make up a well-balanced tandem of an active learner and relaxed mentor. This amazing bedtime cartoon helped lullaby kids all around Poland from 1972 to 1981 due to the sweet voices of narrators Teresa Sawicka (first 13 episodes) and Barbara Marszałek (another 26 episodes).


Miś Uszatek (Teddy Floppy-ear)

Miś Uszatek (Teddy Floppy-ear)

Another bedtime cartoon that became Poland’s second favorite after Lolek i Bolek. Miś Uszatek has been a children’s celebrity bear since 1975 due to his sharp mind and strong will to experience everything new and fun. Together with his mischieving animal friends Piglet, Little Rabbits, Little Hare and the Puppy, Teddy goes on a new adventure.which inevitably ends at the appropriate bedtime (one more reason why Miś Uszatek is also loved by parents).
