Originally started as a "Tom and Jerry" wannabe, the series evolved into a completely different phenomenon. The chases, spills and cartoon character mangling are still there- but the series are also a poignant social satire. The Wolf is a chain-smoking motorcycle-riding beer-guzzling proletarian. The Rabbit has all the childish innocence and enthusiasm of properly raised Soviet youth- and yet displays odd homoerotic tendencies that were obviously missed by the government censors.
The soundtrack is a medley of pop tunes, each providing a commentary on the action and (to a person knowledgeable in '70s Soviet pop-music) is often funnier then the action. The few original pieces written for the show were performed by (at the time) the only Electronic Instruments Orchestra in Russia (featuring weird analog synthesizers, theremins and other interesting devices).
