Who among slovenes does not know Zvitorepec, Lakotnik, Trdonja and other heroes of many comics and picture books? And naughty bunnies from Zigzag, commercials for Mercator, Viki Cream, Chunga Lung, Jelovica and many more. The author of these folk creations is Miki Muster, undoubtedly one of the best creators in the field of comics, where we consider him the originator of picture books and animation in Slovenia. Jump Into the Future is an episode where our heroes fight for a cleaner environment. They visit the future and meet the culprit for pollution in the present.
