    Happy Birthday!

    еще С Днем Варенья!
    Придёт весна и мы раскроем окна..
    Айда на встречу друг другу!
    Придёт весна и яркое солнце
    Растопит лёд старых обид глупых.

    Варенье it's jam (есть еще слово джэм)
    (отличие, на мой взгляд, в том, что варенье это в банке, а джэм - это в упаковке)

    И вместо "С днем рожденья!" говорят "С днем варенья!" - it's childish slang

    С днём варенья - is a panrussian famous quote from one of the best Soviet cartoons drawn by Astrid Lindgren's Karlson. Karlson misspoke the phrase and it became famous.
    Other extraordinary Soviet cartoon is about Winnie Pooh. Owl congrats Eeyore in incomparable maner and that is very famous Birthday congratulations.

    By the way! Guys! You all have to have Russian cartoons- one of the best in the world! I'd recomend it for learning Russian. And don't think that's a childish idea! There are tens of cartoons based on famous books - like Lewis Carroll's Alice. If you have a multizonal DVD player you can watch Russian cartoons on DVD.
    Я так думаю.

There are tens of cartoons (?) drawn by famous books (drawn by books?)- like Lewis Carroll's Alice. If you have a multizonal DVD player you can watch the Russian DVDs with cartoons (with captions?).

    Yes, right! Thank you alot for patience and corrections!
    I thought that to write 'cartoons were drawn by books' would be right decision. I was lead to this thought because everytime I watch the movie enacted by someone's book I read something like:

    Daniel Deronda
    ......by George Eliot's......

    I thought it would be fair to write by George Eliot's book !!

    So cartoons were drawn by (here's like I understood it) famous books.

    If I understood you right, it wasn't the right idea

    And DVDs with cartoons - yes it was a mistake too I see now - I have used the word cartoons for moving pictures, drawn movies - I thought they're called cartoons. Well, tell me please the right word.

    Thanks again!

    Could it be 'drawn after' the book? I don't know for sure, I just ask.

    I think you meant to say "If you have a multizonal DVD player you can watch Russian cartoons on DVD".

    You are using 'cartoons' correctly. It is just a children's television program. "Animated" is the word for a moving picture that is drawn rather than filmed. Now days they are usually "computer animated" meaning drawn with computers rather than pencils as they used to be.

    By "a movie enacted by someone's book," I take it you mean "a movie based on someone's book"? Anyways, it might say "Daniel Deronda by George Eliot" or "George Eliot's Daniel Deronda," but it won't say "Daniel Deronda by George Eliot's."

    Cartoons are drawn by people, not books. I think what you're looking for is based on.

    I think Layne picked up on what you were saying about cartoons.
