Leopold the Cat (Russian: Кот Леопольд, Kot Leopold) is a Soviet/Russian animation series about the pacifistic, and intelligent cat, Leopold. Leopold always wears a bow tie even when swimming. He is always confronted by two mischievous mice, Grey and White (Mitya and Motya). It was filmed by T/O Ekran in 1975 - 1987 and its runtime is 87 min (10 series). As of 1987, there were 11 episodes in total. Eventually, in 1995, most of the episodes were released on DVD.

Pretty much a Soviet version of Tom and Jerry, especially in the later versions which tacked on an aesop catchphrase at the end of each episode.

"Let's live in friendship, guys."
