“On television today there is a lot of programming that can be interesting to children, but despite being attractive and colorful, it does not always contain what we want to instill in our children. They absorb everything, “he explained at a press conference.

The man who became the first Russian World Boxing Association (WBA) heavyweight champion will share the set with the popular puppets who have said goodnight to many generations of children in their more than half a century of history.

A pig, a bunny, a baby raven and a puppy dog, among others, are some of the characters that appear in the program, always accompanied by an adult presenter, and who from Monday to Friday tries to teach something good and useful to the little ones.
