Russian and Soviet actor Oleg Anofriyev died on Wednesday, after a long illness. He was 87 years old. Anofriyev appeared in more than 60 feature films, notably “A Tale of Lost Times” and “Incognito from St. Petersburg.”

His voice is known to millions of people who grew up watching the 1969 cartoon “The Musicians of Bremen,” where Anofriyev sang every role, except the part of the princess. Watch the film with English captions on YouTube here.
