Cheburashka arere

Cheburashka is a Russian character from a 1966 children’s literature.

The little creature, while looking like a baby monkey, is unknown to science.

His name means “tumbled” in Russian colloquialism, given to him by a crocodile named Gena after the cute little guy makes his first appearance by tumbling out of a crate of oranges.
