When Moominpappa befriends an aristocrat and adopts the name 'de Moomin', an exasperated Moominmamma retires to the relative calm of their trusty old boat.

The ending of the film references the final Moomin book, Moominvalley In November. Published in 1970, this was the only one of the books in which the Moomins did not actually appear. In the final pages the central character Toft sights the Moomins' boat far out to see, finally on its way home. In the film this scene is played out with Snufkin taking the role of Toft but the Moomins are seen to return home, finally giving closure to fans who had waited 44 years for their safe return.

Snorkmaiden does not change colour in the movie. As she is a Snork rather than a Moomin, she should be yellow, with her skin colour changing to reflect her emotions. See more »
I went to see this film expecting one of the worst films of the year. I was wrong, it is one of the worst films of all time. No plot, no character introductions and random jokes that wee lost on everyone. In the cinema I went to, about 8 people were watching this film, half of them left before the end. Nothing in the whole movie made sense and I was disappointed even when I expected nothing from this film. I would have to say the target audience for this film would be 5 year old's, but even they would probably not understand anything happening or even find any of the scenes slightly amusing. Overall a generally appalling film and I am unhappy with myself that I chose to see it the whole way through.
