Trivia

When the series was broadcast in Sweden, Tove Jansson insisted that the original Finland-Swedish dub be used, rather than dubbing the show in standard Swedish. Because of this, the variety of Swedish commonly spoken in Finland is sometimes referred to as "the Moomin language" in Sweden. See more »

Alternate Versions

Three of the episodes were never aired on Finnish television (where the series was hugely popular) since some of the scenes were considered to be harmful to children: In the episode 12 "The Pirate", the pirate captain is threatening the Snork Maiden with a knife. In the episode 50 "The Imp", the Moomins are facing a demon living inside an old tree. In the second season's episode 24 "The Birthday Surprise", Little My is seeing nightmares where she has turned into a monster. These episodes were also excluded from the Finnish DVD releases.

Sweetest children's TV-show ever!
24 March 2005 | by emtjenareSee all my reviews

When I was small Muumilaakson tarinoita was my favorite TV-show by far, and I wasn't the only one. Based on the books and comics of Tove and also Lars Jansson, the stories are about Moomin, his parents and his many friends and the adventures they have, and every episode is quite unique and never boring! All the characters are lovely and even the "bad" ones turn out to be not so bad at some point and Moomins are always nice to them! The voices do a good job and the music is wonderful. The episodes might be sad, funny or teaching, and I have never seen a bad Moomin episode except the "new episodes" made later are nothing compared to these, these are the original ones and people should start with watching these! This is not an average children's TV-show, this is better!
