The film was warmly received both by audiences and by professional masters of Soviet animation. It was accepted to a number of domestic and international film festivals, winning a prize at the 1968 All-Union Film Festival and the bronze medal in the children’s films category at the 1974 New York Animation Festival.
The following animated films by the talented artist Amen Khaidarov (“Aksah Ulan”, “Khvostik”, “Khoja-Nasyr – builder”, “Sunny Bunny”, “Forty fables” and others) also became a notable phenomenon in the history of Kazakh animation.
