Muri the Cat / Maček Muri (2013)

10 min / animation, Short Film

Muri the Cat is one of those popular characters from the Slovenian children's literature that everybody has heard of. Muri and his fellows Macy the sleepy pussy, Chombe the thug and Mich the wise guy have delighted children, parents and all the young at heart for over thirty years. The music album, released in 1978, is another proof of theese characters' popularity. It was the song from this album that inspired Dolenc to create Muri the Cat, an animated film depicting new adventures from the Feline Town. Muri finds himself in trouble because he forgot about Macy' birthday, and he is now under a lot of pressure to find the right gift for her. With the help of his friends he eventually manages to charm his hard-to-please gal.
