Trivia

The animation team was very nervous of how Tove Janson would react when they showed her the first animation tests. They needn't be, since Toves reaction was an astounded "They're alive" (meaning her characters). See more »

Alternate Versions

Three of the episodes were never aired on Finnish television (where the series was hugely popular) since some of the scenes were considered to be harmful to children: In the episode 12 "The Pirate", the pirate captain is threatening the Snork Maiden with a knife. In the episode 50 "The Imp", the Moomins are facing a demon living inside an old tree. In the second season's episode 24 "The Birthday Surprise", Little My is seeing nightmares where she has turned into a monster. These episodes were also excluded from the Finnish DVD releases.

User Reviews

childrens programming at its very finest
11 December 2003 | by deansaundersSee all my reviews

Proper storylines with good animation and SUPERB characterisation, I was overjoyed to see this was back on the BBC. Check it out on SAT early mornings and you will not be disappointed- it is much better than the sh*t which passes for kids shows these days. It is sacrelige that Dick and Dom in da bungalow are employed by the same channel which broadcast this wonderful programme.
