#27 of the ‘Animated Soviet Propaganda’ collection. Collected from Soyuzmultfilm’s archives, the 40 films in this archive span sixty years of Soviet history (1924-1984), all dealing with different thematic subjects of the Soviet propaganda machine. Disc Three, ‘Capitalist Sharks,’ contains six films that take on the bourgeoisie the world over – and sometimes beyond.

Coffin Joe is still looking for the perfect woman to give birth to a son of his, and, cleared of the past crimes in the first film (At Midnight I'll Take Your Soul), keeps terrorizing the people in his small town with his iconoclast and sadistic practices.
In the year 50 BC, Gaul is occupied by the Romans - nearly. But the small village of Asterix and his friends still resists the Roman legions with the aid of their druid's magic potion, which gives superhuman strength.
