Wholesome yet strangely nuanced
24 November 2019 | by ecrosby-writerSee all my reviews

I'm an avid fan of moomins, by which I mean I have been raised on it, from its bizarre and oddly sardonic humour to it's cute charming characters. I even have a moomin tattoo. I know it pretty well and I think that this series captures the mood of the books better than any others. Its sweet and wholesome, anarchistic and at times even strangely melancholy. It has something very rarely found in a show aimed a children and that is emotional honesty.

My nieces (3 and 5) love this show. Like me they have been raised with the characters. The more mature themes that sometimes show up allow a dialogue to open between me and them about things that would be hard to broach under normal circumstances, especially when it comes to the 'Invisible child' episode. My 60 year old mother also adores it, enjoying the dynamic between Mama and Papa Moomin.

The voice cast is excellent. The only one I'm not sure fits is Snorkmaiden. Jennifer Saunders as Mymble is excellent, as does Taron Egerton as Moomin. I was sceptical about the CGI visuals when the show was announced but I loved them after the trailer and screenshots were released. It has a cosy sort of aesthetic to it. The soundtrack is pretty good although sometimes I feel that the fit wasn't quite right for the mood of the show.

The writing and visual gags are pretty good overall. It's simple and easy for small children to follow but still entertaining and keeps a decent pace. The adventure sequences are fun to watch.
