Mary Poppins, Goodbye (Russian: Мэри Поппинс, до свидания!; translit. Meri Poppins, do svidaniya) is a Soviet 1983 two-part musical miniseries (part 1 "Lady Perfection", part 2 "Week ends on Wednesday"), directed by Leonid Kvinikhidze. It is loosely based on Mary Poppins stories by P. L. Travers. The TV series were ordered by the Gosteleradio of USSR and produced by Mosfilm. The official television premiere was on January 8, 1984.



Leonid Kvinikhidze reported in an interview later that his intention was not a film for kids, but for adults. The fact that it was very well received by children was unexpected for him.

Pop-music material was recorded by Voskreseniye with a setup consisting of Vadim Golutvin (guitar), Petr Podgorodetskiy (keyboard), and Vladimir Voronin (drums).
