"The Mole" is a Czechoslovak and Czech animated series, the protagonist of which is an animated character of the same name, created by Czech artist Zdenek Miler. A characteristic feature of the character is his large, cute eyes, although they are reduced in a real mole. The first episode was shown in Prague in 1957. It was devoted to the processing of flax ("How the Mole found his pants"). This was the only episode that used character speech. In all subsequent episodes, the characters mainly belong to only interjections, which makes them almost completely understandable without translation for the viewer from any country.
