Spring has finally arrived in Moomin Valley, giving way to another great adventure for Moomintroll and the rest of its inhabitants. With Snufkin coming home from his winter migration, the locals of the valley finally begin to rise from their hibernation. Finding a mysterious hat, the Moomins cannot bring themselves to throw it away due to its fine quality, instead hoping to eventually find its owner.

While playing games with his friends, Moomin tries to hide in the silk hat. When his friends come looking for him, they are shocked to discover that Moomin has transformed into a hideous creature. Examining himself in the mirror, he is disgusted to find himself completely unrecognizable.

Transforming back to normal after scaring his friends and family, Moomin and Snufkin decide to toss the hat in the river. As it drifts away, they begin to wonder who the hat belonged to and whether its owner will return for their lost possession.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Based on the classic Swedish-Finnish children's series by Tove Jansson, Tanoshii Muumin Ikka starts off from the events of the third novel, "Finn Family Moomintrol."

*English is not my first language! This review will be edited... eventually!*

I think it should only be appropiate of me to give my very first review to the very first anime I've ever seen... and it would be this! Moomins, or Muumilaakson Tarinoita, as it would be called here in Finland, is without an doubt, one of the very best works of anime, that I've ever seen - period. Not necesarily "the best" because of the plot, nor even for the story, but because of the characters, and the world they bring to life, simply just by being there. It's an iconic classic, that's what read more

Having watched every episode there is of this show the three past months, I can safely say that the Moomins will fit everyone with a sense of adventure. It's calm, it's exciting, and most of all, the characters are lovable.

The series follows the basic formula of nearly every other Anime. Something happens, the Moomin family must fix it and everything turns out well. However, the series isn't completely episodic. There is a handful of episodes which introduces new characters, while others add background history, giving more depth to the main characters. The best way to watch this is in chronological order.

The animation is fantastic and read more

aah...Moomin or "Muumit" as we say here in Finland was the show of my childhood, like the normal Finn that i am. I dont even remember when i first watched these.
The stories were and still are pretty damn entertaining. They take you to so many different places out of this world, from past to real time. i dunno how to explain but they just were so well written.
The art style was all new when Tove Jansson first published her novel stroies or what ever theyre called. And Japanese made quality work animating it. You could sense clearly all the feelings of the characters and read more

As a first review of mine, It is fitting to begin with the series me and many others have first seen. To summarize, this is an excellent adaptation of the original stories, and has established itself as one of the best children's anime series that also adults can easily appreciate. This review is based on the Finnish dubbed version.

Story 10/10

Story arcs of the original work are split into singular episodes and larger arcs of several episodes. It is in the latter that this adaptation truly shines. While these are self-contained stories, I recommend viewing the series in chronological order. The changing of seasons is an read more
