Story Nr. 42: Mr. PROKOUK AS THE MASCOT OF THE FESTIVAL

Who among you remembers the year 2004, when Mr. Prokouk walked the streets as the mascot of the 44th Zlín Festival? This was not the first time in the festival's history. Mr. Prokouk has always belonged to Zlín and the film studio in Kudlov.

 Mr. Prokouk was brought to life by Karel Zeman in the animated film A Horseshoe for Luck in 1946. The character was used for the purposes of providing information in cinemas at a time when television did not yet exist and people went to cinemas more. The very first in the series, for example, encouraged citizens to collect secondary raw materials.
