The moomins are among the greatest... hell, it's the best show ever!
First of all, I have to say that I just can't give enough credit for this cartoon. Good, now we can start.
This is a show that every kid should see, and I mean every episode of it (I did). This show is funny, exciting and above all, it's deeply meaningful. It really gives you an idea of the important things in life: love, friendship, teamwork, happiness, adventures, ...
If you're thinking you're too old for this kind of show, you're just wrong. While it's the greatest thing for a kid to watch on TV, it's also good for everyone from teenies to grown ups. And another thing is that it doesn't get boring! I have seen every episode more than 5 times but that doesn't bother me, while there are some quite boring episodes, the majority is just awesome, magical at best. You won't live a complete and good life without having seen the moomins, maybe it's just my opinion... maybe it's the absolute truth.
While it's always scary when the groke shows up, you should look at it this way: If you see the first groke episode as a kid, you'll be scared and have nightmares, but you'll get over it (not completely, but still). Now after that, nothing will seem as scary as that. Other monsters from other movies and series will seem laughable. For example, zombie movies. While quite scary, you know they're just infested humans. But the groke, you know nothing about it, it just appears rarely and then disappears into the dark woods... it's always so mystically freaky: you think "what is that? Where does it harvest it's power? What does it eat? Why is it in the moominvalley? will it show up now, when I most expect it?" I don't know why, but you always kinda sense that the groke is about to appear. Even if it doesn't appear, you have the strong feeling that it's out there somewhere. I can't really describe why it's so scary, it just possibly is the scariest thing I know. Still I really like the groke-heavy episodes and would like to see more of it.
Given that I wrote very much about the groke, it's not even a major character. It's just something that has affected me much. Almost everyone is affected by the moomins, but in oh so different ways. It has something for (again, almost) everyone.
...then watch it again. ...and again. Then, show it to your kids someday. I highly recommend it.
