Potets (Потец) is a text by Alexander Vvedensky from 1936-1937, which does not lend itself to genre definition. Due to the censorship ban in the USSR on the "adult" works of Vvedensky, it was first published during perestroika, more than half a century after its creation. The only film adaptation of Vvedensky's work.


The cartoon was never released but was shown several times on television (the premiere took place on February 4th, 1993), after which it was placed on the shelf of the Gosfilmofond. It is not known whether the film was banned from television or was simply unclaimed. In 2008, thanks to the efforts of a group of enthusiasts with the support of the screenwriter of the film Marina Vishnevetskaya, Potets was digitized and posted on the Internet.

In 2018, at the State Television and Radio Fund, the original film with the cartoon was scanned on a modern film scanner and its color correction was carried out.
