Cartoon movie industry has nothing to do with original ideas. Almost everything we see on the screen is either a cartoon adaptation of an old story, a book, or simply a rip off. And there’s nothing bad about it as it is really hard to come up with original stories all the time. Plus, you can never go wrong with a good old story loved by millions of people around the world. This is why different countries have their own versions of Winnie the Pooh and Cinderella, for example. With that being said, let’s have a look at what our favorite characters look like in other countries.
Winnie the Pooh (USA) – Vinni Pukh (Russia)
We all know the story of Winnie the Pooh. Now, Russian Vinni Pukh tells a whole different story. Most of the characters might stay the same, except there’s no Christopher Robin, and Vinni and his friends are forest animals, not toys. Oh, and the Owl is a girl.
Brave (USA) – Kiara the Brave (India)
This Indian cartoon might have actually inspired the Pixar’s Brave since it came out a year before. The original name was Super K, and the red-haired girl is not even the main character there. She is with a group of friends who get together to fight the evil Dr. Ozox who is trying to destroy Dreamzone, a world in a galaxy.
Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs (USA) – The Tale of the Sleeping Princess & the Seven Knights (Russia)
These two are not much different. There’s a glass coffin, a poisoned apple and a prince, except the Russian version has knights instead of dwarfs, but who cares.
Pokémon (Japan) – Dogmons (Brasil)
The Brasilian version is pretty much identical to the Japanese one. The only difference is that Ash became Alex, and his little friend is now called Greendog.
