I've always wandered what Gandalf would look like if he was played by a Disco Vincent Price in a 80's WWF outfit.

Now I know.

And this had to be some high ranking official's nephew's vanity project because the Soviets were crazy about their arts, be it their animation, movies, plays and especially their ballet. It's like they said, "Fine, if we can't beat the Americans to the moon. We can beat them on stage."

I can imagine a huge State funded Hobbit project would have been amazing with the occasional odd ballet number thrown in for no reason.

Ha, found it again.

"The Trouble of the Rings"(lgt website)

trailer for all three parts

The movies are on vimeo, too; about 75 minutes each.
I just love all the cute little ideas.

IIRC I found this parody when I was looking for something like "hobbits hiding" for a PS contest and had the image below with the girls in their fuzzy slippers among the GIS results.

Frodo: Do you want my Ring?
Galadriel: The Ring? Alas, Article 18 clause 7 prohibits importing rings of power to Valinor.

Sam: What do you think, Mr. Frodo, will we ever be put in legends or tales?
Frodo: Of course. We'll even be put in a book. And they might shoot another movie as well.
Sam: And it will get 11 Academy Awards!

Aragorn: This is Rohan. We need to be careful from now on. We're homeless, jobless and have no papers.

FlyPanAm: In Russia, Mordor walks into you.

In Russia, Eagles do their part for the collective and avoid Siberian gulag by flying hobbits into Mordor.
