Bartok the Magnificent

On the streets of Moscow, Bartok is making his way as a performer telling of all the mighty deeds that he, Bartok the Magnificent, has done--slaying dragons, plucking griffins, chasing out harpies and so on. It is all pure fabrication of course, including the heroic cap to his performance where he defeats a mighty bear which is actually his good friend and partner, Zozi. Nonetheless, when young Prince Ivan is kidnapped the people are in need of a hero and send for the mighty Bartok the Magnificent. Now Bartok must prove that there's actually a heroic heart in that tiny bat body as he ventures into the Iron Forest in search of the grumpy old witch, Baba Yaga.
