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.

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."

As a Finn, I honestly feel that I have to say something about this series! It's one of the best children's anime series I've ever seen! Because it's not only for kids but also adults can enjoy this with a big heart! Tove created a really philosophical world full of great characters and this anime makes that world even better! In Finland, this series wasn't divided into seasons, so here this series has a total of 104 episodes with the same opening and ending, but this review will focus on the first 78 episodes.

Tanoshii Muumin Ikka is a 1990 TV show that is mostly aimed at kids - but not only. It is one of the best animated works in existence, and that is because it is created by a combination of admirable people.

Many episodes are just playful and childish, but you will be astonished by how meaningful some of them might be, or relatable for adults.

The first thing that must be mentioned about this series is Tove Jansson’s philosophical approach and the ...

If I only could choose one series to describe my childhood it would be without a doubt this one! I probably can quote every episode by heart. As a matter of fact, I would say that a lot of my friends and family would say the exact same thing. Moomin was our childhood! Growing up we watched this story countless of times.

The characters are loveable and funny. They have their own quirks, which makes every single own memorable. It's hard to choose only own favorite characters from the series. Characters like Snufikn, Little My and Moominmama are all so loveable.

The stories in Moominvalley gives ...
