Wieczorynka, or Dobranocka, was a nightly children’s program spot on TVP1 (later TVP Polonia) which began during the 1950s and continued through 2013, at which time it was picked up by TVP Kultura, and later TVP ABC, a channel dedicated to children’s programming. Throughout the years many shows occupied the traditional time slot (around 7pm each day), including Polish, Czech, German, Japanese, Soviet, British, and American productions. One of the best known and most popular Polish shows were the stop motion-animated adventures of Miś Uszatek (Floppy Bear, or Teddy Floppy-ear). The character was created by writer Czesław Janczarski and illustrator Zbigniew Rychlicki in 1957 and featured in the kids’ magazine Miś. In 1962 a film version of Miś Uszatek was created, however his popularity really began to soar in 1975 when Studio Małych Form Filmowych Se-ma-for began producing his adventures for television.
The show centers around a floppy-eared teddy bear, a preschooler, who is also the narrator of the show. Other characters include Uszatek’s friends as well as several adults such as parents and a teacher. Among these are Zajączek (Rabbit), Prosiaczek (Piglet), Króliczki (twin Bunnies), Kot (Cat), Kruczek (a dog whose name translates to Little Raven), Ciocia Chrum-Chrum (Auntie Oink-Oink, Piglet’s aunt), Mama Królików (mother of the Bunnies), Alina, Róża and Kajtek (three dolls), Sroczka (Magpie), Kotka (Kittie, preschool teacher), Koguciki (Roosters), Jeż (Hedgehog), Wiewiórki (Squirrels), Wróble (Sparrows), Osiołek (Donkey), Sarenka (Doe), Sójka (a Eurasian jay bird), Mopsik (Pug), Strach na wróble (Scarecrow), rodzina Kaczek (Duck family), Jamnik (Dachshund), Baranki (Sheep), Koziołek (Goat), rodzina Bobrów (Beaver family), Sowa (Owl), Myszy (Mice), Koza-woźna (Goat, the janitor), and Pies-hydraulik (Dog, the plumber).
The show lasted 9 seasons between 1975 and 1987 with 104 episodes. (source)
