I had a cartoon I watched as a child on VHS I'm trying to remember the name of. Here is a list of details i can recall about it.

  • Its old - pre 1960's (at a guess)
  • Its called "The 3" Somthing I think the third word in the title began with a C
  • It was silent save music and some sound effects
  • I was in colour
  • There were 3 main characters, 1 big burly guy, 1 very short guy and 1 tall thin guy each riding inappropriately sized horses.
  • I think its Russian if not its definitely Eastern European

Here is what I can remember of the storyline:

    The 3 men are riding around the country side and find a village of beautiful women
where each find a perfect match for themselves. During the night something happens
(Cant remember exactly what one of them, or someone else gets kidnapped and they have
to go find them) They go out at night searching and witness witches and other creatures
(including a pumpkin on a stick wearing a raggedy shirt) travelling along a road into 
the woods. They decide to follow them and come across a very Strange tavern, the tavern 
has a waterwheel which when they first come across it digs into the ground in order to 
turn the tavern around 360 degrees after which the door opens and smoke comes out of  
the chimney.

    Inside they find various nightmarish creatures drinking and smoking and partying. 
After a while the barman makes a concoction of various powders and liquids which he 
places in front of a pair of boots. The drink is then lifted by an invisible force and 
consumed above the pair of boots revealing a huge red head with legs and arms (i 
believe its supposed to be the devil)

    Various things happen after that, the 3 guys end up beating up the creatures and 
returning happily to the village of women.
