Масяня - Masyanya - Netflix

Masyanya (Russian: Мася́ня) is a Russian animated web series created by Oleg Kuvaev with Macromedia Flash in 2001. The series focuses around the eponymous heroine in her twenties who lives in an apartment in St. Petersburg. Masyanya has an oval-shaped head and always wears a miniskirt and a shirt with a bare midriff. Aside from her, the main recurring characters in the series are: Hryundel' (Хрю́ндель) - her rather dense, good-natured, overall-clad boyfriend. Lokhmaty (Лохмáтый, Russian for “Shaggy”) - their friend, a pudgy and care-free drummer. Lyas'ka (Ля́ська) - a girl from Moscow and Masyanya's friend. A typical Masyanya episode is only a few minutes long. And also each .swf episode weighted 170-400KB (some weighted 3MB), and consists mainly of sarcastic (and frequently absurd) commentary on contemporary Russian life. Some of the most popular episodes include one in which Masyanya and Hryundel' snicker and later hysterically laugh while Hryundel' is recording a jingle on the radio; another involves a sexual encounter made impossible by the lack of “shtuchki” (“thingies”), while yet another involves the two main characters exchanging a series of increasingly awful gifts, including a horse-shaped piñata and a bag of green cats. The episodes are generally loosely connected, and the characters initially did not age. For most of the episodes, no particular sequence or storyline could be established until recently. They can be watched in any order, but some episodes lose a great deal of their charm if one isn't familiar with at least some series history. Russian pop songs are often used in the soundtracks of episodes. Several episodes are, in essence, music videos set to a particular song. Masyanya's popularity is rapidly growing on both sides of the Atlantic. In Russia, Masyanya made the move from the Internet to television and can now be seen on several cartoons and talk shows, although its popularity is mainly supported by the Internet. In Germany, translations are being made of some of the more popular episodes. In the United States, Masyanya has become an integral feature of the Middlebury College Summer Russian Language Program in Vermont.
