The Moomins (Swedish: Mumin) are the central characters in a series of books and a comic strip by Swedish-speaking Finnish illustrator Tove Jansson, originally published in Swedish by Schildts in Finland. They are a family of white, round fairy tale characters with large snouts that make them resemble hippopotamuses. The family lives in their house in Moominvalley, though in the past, their temporary residences have included a lighthouse and a theatre. They have had many adventures along with their various friends.

there’s been a pretty big moomin resurgence thanks to twitter and the new animated show (Moominvalley) but a lot of people grew up with these guys too. show off cute moomin stuff, post relatable comics, tell me how snuffkin was your first crush or let’s talk about the old/new episodes.

more on topic, snuffkin wasn't my first crush but he is one of my favorite characters of all time. i love everything from his design to his behaviors. i just want to go on adventures with him

Interesting art style. I like it and dislike it at the same time.

My grandfather played Snufkin in the first ever Moomin stage play back in 1949 when he was still a drama student. I wasn't sure if I should post the pic or not but it's on Wikipedia and stuff, so… He's the one just behind Tove (obviously)

I don't like the art style in that new series, but this movie from 2014 year looked just amazing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moomins_on_the_Riviera

Too bad that they don't used similar art style on the new show, because that 3D-generated stuff feels most of the time quite cheap and generic.

>that 3D-generated stuff feels most of the time quite cheap and generic

Well, is because it's cheap and generic. I hate it, is so ugly. Why couldn't they model the chars in a more similar fashion to the 2014 movie? Or at least the 90's anime.

Anyway pic related is best Moomins to me.

It's very impressive how close to original comics that film matches. https://www.moomin.com/en/blog/a-first-look-at-moomins-on-the-riviera-we-wanted-2/

No. 13236

if you haven’t watched it yet I’d give it a chance, I don’t like awful 3d but somehow with this they were able to keep a lot of the charm. furry, knit, fuzzy, textures that remind you of the “fuzzy felt” moomins and a mix of 2d background elements pop in with the 3d giving it the homey feel of the animated version and comics. I also really like the lighting of the series in the first two episodes, they really captured the warmth of spring.

hopefully this link works but a lot of moomin folks from twitter and tumblr went on a moomin hunt. they’re working on scanning stuff, adding old episodes and the new ones but this is a good place to dig in.

Thank you so much for the link anon, I've been searching the old Moomin episodes in Finnish for ages!

I'll give it a go! After all my love for Moomins is bigger than my hatred for CGI. Besides, it makes me happy that The Moomins are having a revival and little old me needs some Snufkin.

Why not Swedish? Just curious

No. 18054

I'm finnish and watched a lot of Moomin in my childhood, so for pure nostalgia reasons! Many of the voice actors are same in Finnish and Swedish though, if I remember correctly. The old voice actors are great, much better than in the new dub.

Anyone have an idea where people are reading the comics online? I can only find one of the comic collections in colour and the rest of the books I find are the children's books.
