The Magyar népmesék (Hungarian Folk Tales) is a Hungarian animated series.
Each episode is based on a Hungarian folk tale. The creators (including Marcell Jankovics) paid special attention to using Hungarian folk motives in the episodes.
The language in the episodes features a lot of archaic and dialectical Hungarian words, phrases and sayings. Whether you are young or old, I suggest you to watch them, you can learn a lot. 🙂
