Captain Pronin Superstar is a 90's cartoon series created by Ecran/Soyuztelefilm studio and directed by Mikhail Zaytsev as a pardody of the western action movies that came into the country shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union. Seeing that this was shortly after the Soviet Union went under in 1991, Russia's economy wasn't really cut out for animation which resulted in the series animation quality being worse than the rest of the world's standards would have been in the 1970's.
Captain Pronin is also partially based off Lev Ovalov's Major Pronin novels, a Soviet Russian equivalent of James Bond.
The series consisted of four episodes spread across 1992-1994, a couple books, and it even spawned a adventure game for the PC and Playstation called Captain Pronin - One Against All.
