This is a long shot but in the 70s there were a lot of imported kids shows from Eastern Europe. Im looking to identify a particular one but rather than me trying to describe it, can fellow retro readers name the programmes they know of this type? I will google likely candidates and be eternally grateful if someone names it. Help please !

Wasn't White Horses Yugoslavian?

And there were plenty of weird Iron Curtain cartoons on at 6am on TCC early 90s Sky. Not quite Worker & Parasite, but nearly.

I remember some pretty dark foreign cartoons, but no names spring to mind.

The Singing Ringing Tree [1957] - had a giant goldfish in it, prety weird
The Tinderbox [1959] - had a tinderbox? remember it vaguely

Both shows were German but had English narration, shown on BBC Tv in the 1960's and 70's
There were a few others similar.
