Moomins
« on: May 14, 2019, 11:27:33 PM »
I want to know if anyone else is interested in moomins. This topic came to my head because I saw florapaw change her profile picture to Snorkmaiden (a moomin character).

Moomins is a popular Finnish book series and comic stript written and illistrated by Tove Jannson. These lovable characters have had many adaptations including a stop motion series, movies, a few animes, and a new CGI series.

I started watching the 1990 TV show three years ago, and with the new CGI series, Moominvalley, Moomins have been gaining popularity in countries other than Finland and Switzerland.


Episode 1 of the 1990 Moomin series:

One of the characters called Tooticky was voiced by Stacey Jefferson who went on to do Farthing Wood later in the 1990s.

Awww, one of my great favorites of my childhood! <3 This and Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin were an important part of my childhood and I still love it. My favorite character has always been Snufkin, because he is so philosophical character, who likes wander.

The series's animation is really beautiful. Similarly, music. Absolutely the most beautiful than any other children's series music!

I’m so flattered that you noticed that I changed my profile picture! Lmao,,,

I would die for Snorkmaiden and she should be reason enough for people to get invested in the series honestly.

I heard about the new moomins. Where can you find it? Is it online anywhere?

It is a very cute avatar :clover

I started watching the old anime a while back, but never finished it.  Real life got in the way.  I'll have to get back to it at some point.

I hadn't heard about the new version until this thread, though; another show to add to my list of things to watch.  So many shows, so little time...

Wow, that seems extremely expensive...

I love Tooticky, she is one of my favorite characters along with Snufkin. In the new series they give her a scottish voice.

Pretty much everyone who likes the moomins favorite character is Snufkin which once you hear his voice it's easy to see why  :p

I used to watch the '90s series and can remember the theme tune. The human-type characters I wasn't so keen on. I couple of years ago I had a Moomin calendar which had lovely, bold, original illustrations. :D
