Storyline

The Moomins, Snorkmaiden and Little My set sail for the Riviera, where, after a journey fraught with storms and desert island dangers, Snorkmaiden is dazzled by the attentions of a playboy and Moomin learns that jealousy's sting is the most painful of all. When Moominpappa befriends an aristocrat and adopts the name 'de Moomin', an exasperated Moominmamma retires to the relative calm of their trusty old boat. For the very first time, the unity of the Moomins is threatened. Written by Handle Productions

Trivia

The first view of Moomin is from behind, with just his bottom and tail visible. In the original comic strips, every new storyline was started in the same way. See more »

Goofs

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 »

User Reviews

 
This isn't Moomins
9 July 2017 | by GwydionMWSee all my reviews

Visually the cartoon was OK, but it totally ignored any number of excellent plots from the originals.

Had pirates, except they behaved absurdly. And did not fit.

Then sent them to the Riviera, where they were obviously out of place.

A complete botch.

Why does no one in the world of commercial cinema accept that a successful original is best treated with respect?
