Polish Cartoon

Polish animation has a long and proud history dating back to the early 20th century. One of the first animated films produced in Poland was „The Locomotive” (1913) by Władysław Starewicz, a pioneering stop-motion animator who is considered one of the fathers of the medium.

In the years that followed, Polish animators continued to push the boundaries of the art form, creating a rich and diverse body of work that ranged from political satire to children’s entertainment. Here are some of the oldest and most beloved national (traditional) Polish cartoons
