Trivia

The episodes #48-60 of the series, from The Moomins: Zwyczajny Dzien (1981) to The Moomins: Kometa nad Dolina (1981), are based on the second Moomin book "Comet in Moominland" (original title in Swedish: "Kometjakten"; Finnish: "Muumipeikko ja pyrstötähti") by the Finnish author Tove Jansson. It was first published in 1946 and revised in 1968. The feature-length film Moomins and the Comet Chase (2010) is also created and compiled from these Comet in Moominland-based episodes of the television series. See more »

Now that's scary!
26 June 2006 | by Torgo_ApprovesSee all my reviews

(r#39)

I stumbled upon this show on Youtube searching for my lost childhood in the form of old anime Moomin episodes. If I'm to understand this right, this is the show that the Brits grew up with. No wonder people like Bullet Tooth Tony exist.

Richard Murdoch hauntingly tells the tale of how Moomin transformed into a hideous beast when he hid inside the Wizard's hat. Accompanying the narration are creepy art-house-inspired Moomin dolls jumping around to some sort of flute-like music. A very creepy experience and I hope I don't get any nightmares because of this.

8/10
