↳ “Lepatriinude jõulud” 2001 (Ladybirds’ Christmas)
“Lepatriinude jõulud” is an Estonian animation. A shy ladybird Tim visits his good friends Mia when suddenly the world around them starts to shake. When they wake up, they are no longer in the woods they know, but in someone’s living room. While looking for the way back to the woods, they meet all sorts of strange bugs who live in the house and know nothing about their destination. Their luck turns when Santa comes to visit the humans and with him comes along an elf-bug, giving gifts to everybody. Noticing a lonely pair, elf-bug works his magic and Mia and Tim return to the woods.
The animation picked up an award from a festival in Ukraine, Russia and China. The VHS release included the full “Kutsu-Juku seiklused” animation.
