Lúdas Matyi is an epic poem written by the Hungarian poet Mihály Fazekas, based on a folk tale. The poem tells the story of a peasant boy, Matyi, trying to sell his geese at the country fair. The local lord Döbrögi claims the geese for himself, and when Matyi protests, the lord orders his soldiers to beat him up. Matyi swears Revenge: he will beat up Döbrögi three times. By using various disguises, he succeeds.
The poem and the animated film provide examples of:
- Egomaniac Hunter: In the animated film, Döbrögi is shown being one. He wants to shoot Matyi's goose too.
- Fat Bastard: Döbrögi.
- Folk Hero: Lúdas Matyi himself.
- Inept Mage: In the animated film, a witch attempts to heal Döbrögi, but messes it up. After Döbrögi shouts Burn the Witch, she escapes the castle on a Flying Broomstick.
- Karmic Trickster: Matyi punishes Döbrögi for his greed by tricking him three times.
- Non-Human Sidekick: In the cartoon the goose escapes from Döbrögi and joins Matyi. In the radio play he is a Talking Animal called Galiba.
