Well, Just you wait! Nu, Pogodi! Ну, погоди!

Nu, pogodi! (Russian: Ну, погоди!, Well, Just You Wait!) is a Soviet/Russian animated series produced by Soyuzmultfilm. The series was created in 1969 and became a popular cartoon of the Soviet Union. The latest episode was produced in 2006. The original film language is Russian but very little speech is used (usually interjections or at most several sentences per episode).

The series follows the comical adventures of a mischievous yet artistic wolf, Volk, trying to catch (and presumably eat) a hare, Zayats. The series has additional characters that usually either help the hare or interfere with the wolf's plans.

The Hare's clothing is much less varied than the Wolf's. He is nearly always seen in the same green T-shirt and blue shorts. However, in the prologue of Episode 8 he appears in an ice-skating outfit, and later on in this episode he is dressed up as Ded Moroz, a character not typically performed by young boys, which makes the scene deliberately absurd (it becomes even more absurd when the Wolf joins dressed up as Snow Maiden).

The Wolf's most characteristic piece of clothing is his bell-bottoms which can ambiguously be either part of naval uniform or the 1970s fashion. He is most often seen in a pink shirt with a yellow necktie, but occasionally (Episode 7) appears in a naval undershirt (telnyashka). In Episode 11 he wears a jacket in the beginning, but soon removes it when chasing the Hare. Not infrequently, he loses most of his clothes during the chase, going on in his chintz underpants only (those are a realistic depiction of Soviet-style underwear). Humorously, all of his bottom clothes have a special opening for his tail.
