Today I learned from @silpol that Ivan Kotliarevsky wrote a mock-heroic poem based on The Aeneid in the late 18th century, where Aeneas is a Cossack. Internet tells me it is considered the first work written wholly in the Modern Ukrainian language. Then I learned about the illustrated burlesque version: http://1000years.uazone.net/Eneide/

@ricercar I'd be very interested in watching that. Is it also named Eneida?

not sure whether @ricercar mentions this cartoon, as it belongs to well-known "cossack cartoons" from Soviet-era Kievnauchfilm series https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZ8n9Ma42SU
