The Hungarian Folk Tales series has become a Hungaricum
On 15 October 2020, the Hungarian Hungaricum Committee held its annual meeting and its members unanimously voted in favor of the 100-part series. The collection now contains 76 items.
At the meeting of the Hungarikum Committee, István Nagy, Minister of Agriculture and Chairman of the Committee, pointed out that Hungarian Folk Tales are outstanding national values and form the basis of our culture. He added that the series of cartoons disseminates the traditions of our country in a unique form and with visual elements.
The production of this cult series, which has been a great experience for generations, started in 1977 and has provided the staff of the Kecskemét Cartoon Studio with work for more than 30 years. Based on the idea of Ferenc Mikulás, the first episodes were directed by Marcell Jankovics, and over the decades, a series of directors such as Mária Horváth and Lajos Nagy joined in. Together with Marcell Jankovics, they have recorded most of the episodes.
Episodes of the series are available on YouTube.
