The puppet films of Jiri Trnka The emperor's nightingale ( Visual )
3 editions published in 1999 in Czech and English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Story of the bass cello is based on Chekhov's story about a bass player whose clothes are stolen while he's bathing in a river. The song of the prairie is a parody of the wild American West where the pistol rules, timidity has no place, and love blossoms. The merry circus, created by using paper cut-outs and stop-action photography, shows an afternoon at a circus. A drop too much is the tragic tale of a motorcyclist who, happily on his way to meet his fiancee, stops at a tavern with disastrous results. The hand tells the story of a happy artist who devotes his time to making a pot for his favorite flower until he is ordered by a giant hand to create a statue instead. Jiri Trnka, puppet animation master is a brief documentary that includes clips of the artist working on his puppets and excerpts from some of his films. The emperor's nightingale is based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen in which the emperor loves the song of the nightingale so much that he buys an artificical bird which breaks the real nightingale's heart

Monsieur et monsieur by Břetislav Pojar ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in French and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Trois courts métrages, grands classiques de l'animation Tchèque pour les tout-petits... Les aventures burlesques de deux petits ours Monsieur et monsieur à l'imagination débordante, qui partent sauver une princesse aux allures de poissons, défendre leur potager contre un bouc mal intentionné ou expérimenter l'hibernation chez les pingouins... Dans les trois films, la proposition est pédagogique, en une réflexion sur la générosité. Accompagnés par une musique communicative, nos deux ours avancent dans un rythme tranquille qui rend la narration compréhensible, rythme qui chaque fois connaît un crescendo modéré mais notable qui mène par trois fois à des chutes positives, alliant sens de la vie et magie. Où le cinéma est un bel appareil de rêve
