Two decades after Jiří Trnka’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1959), this was only the second Czech feature puppet film to originate in the Jiří Trnka Studio. Along with Stanislav Látal, Jiří Kubíček also collaborated on this script of Defoe’s novel. They managed to give Robinson Crusoe a certain impracticality, a sense of being in a quandary and an especially distinctive sense of humour.
