The Turnip (Repka) is an ancient Russian folk tale about an old man who planted a turnip, which grew to be enormous. After he unsuccessfully tries to pull out the turnip, he calls his whole family for help including a dog, a cat and a mouse. This short animation is based on my unpublished illustrated children's book "Turnip", which has some little twists to it.
