Although Khrzhanovsky's 1966 dark comedy There Lived Kozyavin was clearly a comment on the dangerous absurdity of a regimented communist bureaucracy it was approved by the state owned Soyuzmultfilm studio. However The Glass Harmonica in 1968 continuing a theme of heartless bureaucrats confronted by the liberating power of music and art was the first animated film to be officially banned in Russia.
