The Humpbacked Horse Dubbed in America as "The Magic Pony," (Russian: Конёк-Горбуно́к; tr.:Konyok Gorbunok) is a 1947 Soviet/Russian traditionally-animated feature film directed by Ivan Ivanov-Vano and produced by the Soyuzmultfilm studio in Moscow. The film is based on the poem by Pyotr Pavlovich Yershov, and because of this everyone in the film speaks in rhymes. A remake was made in 1975 by the same director and studio.
