In Poland bee Maia was very popular 30, 20 and even 10 years ago. I remember us kids watching this cartoon on Sunday evenings at 7 pm. The Polish version of the song was really very popular and I think all middle-aged Poles know at least a part of it. I'll find it on YouTube and let you see and listen to it. :)
