The Moomins (TV series)
For the Japanese television series, see Moomin (1990 TV series).
The Moomins (Polish: Opowiadania Muminków, German: Die Mumins) is a stop motionanimatedchildren's television series based on the Tove Jansson's Moomin series of books which was produced by Se-ma-for and Jupiter Film between 1977 and 1982 for Polish, Austrian and German television. The series was later sold to other countries including the UK. The British version was adapted by Anne Wood at FilmFair and broadcast in the UK. Series 1 was first shown on Monday 24 January 1983 at 4:15 pm and series 2 on Monday 7 January 1985 at 4.15pm on Children's ITV, and series 2 was repeated in 1986. The series was last repeated in its entirety in 1988. It was narrated by British actor Richard Murdoch.
This series was the third series to be made based on the Moomin books. Two more were subsequently made. It is one of the two best-known Moomin series (along with the Japanese-made anime version Moomin (1990). The 1977–1982 stop-motion version has been criticised for being scary in places and rather dark in tone for the young audience at which it was aimed. It is, in contrast to the 1990s series, widely believed to be the most faithful TV adaptation of Tove Jansson's stories, and much closer to her vision. Tove herself had a great deal of involvement during the series' production and was very happy with it (as revealed in an interview with Anne Wood in Simon Sheridan's 2007 book The A to Z of Classic Children's Television). The scripts for each episode were translated from Polish into Swedish and sent to Tove and Lars Jansson, who, if they felt that anything needed to be changed, corrected the script, expanding or rewriting it; afterwards, the scripts were sent back and only then did production of the particular episode begin.
The opening titles featured a bouncy theme tune consisting of flutes and synthesizers composed by Graeme Miller and Steve Shill, and a popular still of Moomintroll holding a hat.
In 2010, an HD version of the series was released. It was later followed by a new US-produced English dub in 2017.
The UK adaptation consisted of 100 five-minute episodes.
Series 1 consisting of 50 episodes was first broadcast Mondays to Fridays at 4:15 pm, 24 January to 1 April 1983 on Children's ITV. Series 2 consisting of another 50 episodes first aired Monday to Fridays at 4:15 pm, 7 January to 15 March 1985 on Children's ITV.

The order above is the correct broadcast order, for when the episodes were first shown on UK television in 1983 (taken from the original script list). The episode order in the recent DVD boxset was changed, so that the English episodes were intended to match the German broadcast order (but they were in fact different). In the UK, the series ended with the Comet in Moominland story. Series 1 was shown in 1983 and series 2 in 1985. Series 2 was repeated in 1986. The series was also repeated in its entirety in 1988. (Confirmed by the sleeve notes from Finders Keepers Moomin soundtrack release 2016).
Impact and critical reaction
In 2008 the series was listed at number 25 in a list of top 50 children's TV by The Times.[failed verification] Excerpts from the series have been shown at film festivals in the UK and Japan.
A Region 2 DVD boxset was released in 2004, in both English and German editions (both versions manufactured in Austria).
Single DVD releases are also available, which contain English and German episodes. The German episodes have English subtitles and the English episodes have German subtitles.
The complete series in its original Polish version, which was longer than the UK re-edit and had a different musical score, was released in Poland in 2009, as a 5-DVD Region 2 box set.

Originally published in London's Evening News, Jansson drew and wrote these strips in English. Written in the same period (1954-1960) as the chapter books Moominsummer Madness and Moominland Midwinter, these strips will entertain children with their familiar characters, while adult readers will appreciate their gentle wit and often satirical stance.
This volume is the first in an anticipated five-volume set, and collects the four stories Brigands, Family Life, Moomin on the Riviera and Moomin's Desert Island.
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. From 1953 to 1960, the late Finnish artist Jansson drew a comic strip about her creation Moomin for the London Evening News. Though the strip was an enormous success around the world, this is the first North American edition of an expressive and endearing classic. Moomin's stories begin simply (he needs to rid his home of freeloaders, or goes on a family vacation) and snowball into a series of amusing, whimsical misadventures, which can involve elements of the fantastic, like magic, monsters and ghosts. Although Moomin, his parents and his girlfriend, Snorkmaiden, are trolls, they look like friendly hippopotamuses. Moomin is reminiscent of a big, chubby baby; there is something of Charlie Brown in him: Moomin is like a child beset by life's troubles and usually (but not always) too passive to get angry and fight back. Adults should appreciate Jansson's satire—although she always provides happy endings, dark undercurrents are at play: one episode opens with Moomin attempting suicide; reunited with his missing parents, he's abandoned by them again. Jansson's deceptively childlike style masterfully conveys her characters' personalities. Moomin's mouth rarely appears, but his eyes, his brows and his gestures are expressive and endearing. (Oct.)

From School Library Journal
Grade 10 Up–Beloved around the world, the Moomins are fanciful creatures that look quite a lot like upright hippopotami. They are peaceful, dreamy sorts who occasionally yearn for adventure, but always come back to their home. This is the first collection of the comic strips, which were begun by Jansson in 1954 and carried by the London Evening News. Adventures in this volume include sophisticated issues, such as dealing with houseguests who have overstayed their welcome, a trip to the French Riviera, pirate attacks, and critiques on modern art. Whimsical, yet deep, they will appeal to fans of Charles Schultz's Peanuts strip. Black-and-white illustrations are simple, but stylistically unique and charming. Appeal may be mixed due to the slightly dated language and philosophical tendencies of the characters, which, in this incarnation, were written for adults, but teens with a taste for the absurd will find this offering quite adorable.–Dawn Rutherford, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA

In the 1950s Jansson (1914-2001) was world famous for her children's books about Moomin when the Associated Press contracted with her for an all-ages Moomin comic strip. Wide-eyed, sweetly thick-headed Moomin has the body of a hippo, the soul of a puppy. Unlike his friend Sniff, a sort of kangaroo-rat hybrid, Moomin cares naught for fame or fortune, though he isn't averse to mild adventure. The strip's story arcs are lengthy and complex but not confusing, develop the characters well, and hold up nicely after 50 years. In the first, "Brigands," Moomin is the only creature of his kind, but in the later "Family Life" and "Moomin on the Riviera," he has parents and a partner, Snorkel Maiden. Jansson's black-and-white images are most expressive; the characters arch brows and roll eyes tellingly, and settings glow with sunshine, glower with storm. The gentle ribbing Jannson gives midcentury Western culture--Moomin makes modern art, deals with a banker, is bested by a picnic pig's widow--delighted sophisticates then and should charm their progeny now.

Dad smoked on the street, and Mom was still preening in the bedroom. The bell, sighing heavily, I went to the hallway. Mom's friend came with her husband and daughter - we went to them. Soon my mother appeared, dressed in a festive dress and all radiant. I stared at her with my mouth open.

By this time, I sat down on my knees between the three of them and took out Vlad's members and the sleigh, they helped me with this. They were sluggish compared to Seryoga's member.
