"There was a wide choice of animal pets — a wolf cub, a monkey, a giraffe and others that the show producers have been considering to star in the popular TV project. The ideas were discussed with children and their parents," Mitroshenkov said at the conference.
The "Good Night, Little Ones" show first came on air on September 1, 1964. There were neither puppets nor animated cartoon films in the show then. It was merely a collection of pictures featuring characters created by famous cartoon film producers, which were demonstrated to the accompaniment of stories read out from behind the scenes. Puppets made by skillful puppet designers of the world famous Sergei Obraztsov Puppet Theater came to the program years later.
Today, the show gives an immense delight to a third generation of children after 1964. Its anchors are Oksana Fedorova - winner of one of Miss Universe beauty contest, popular singer and composer Dmitry Malikov and actress Anna Mikhalkova — daughter of celebrated film director Nikita Mikhalkov.
"Good Night, Little Ones" is a three-times winner of the former prestigious TEFI award (awarded for best achievements on Russian television) it received in 1997, 2002 and 2003. It is also contesting a page of honor in the Guinness Records Book as the oldest show for kids in the world.
