Goat story - The Old Prague Legends
The cheerful story tells of Kuba and his constantly cuddling Goat, who bring eggs to the Charles Bridge. Love for the city girl Katy takes Jemmy to work on the legendary Old Town Clock. The whole story is interwoven with the mysterious fate of poor student Matěj of Faust's house and other legends and specters of medieval Prague. In addition to the great performances of Jiří Lábus and Matěj Hádek, "The Goat Story" - the first Czech 3D animated film - has earned the reputation of a film with a special and distinctive artistic concept, which has also won favor with foreign audiences.
Goat story with Cheese
A Goat Story with Cheese loosely follows the previous movie. The storyline was transferred from medieval Prague to a fairy-tale kingdom and, in addition to the well-known characters, viewers can look forward to a number of fairy-tale creatures and new heroes - the children of Jemmy and Katy - Honzík and Zuzanka, who go through the whole story with Koza. The film's overall tuning is more family-like and fairy-tale than the previous one.
