Hello to all children and grown-ups! Did you know that there are people who want to ban Moomin and his friends? Horrible. At least one site on internet the authors even recommend that parents prevent their children from meeting and playing with friends who read or watch Moomin comics. Moomin and his friends have a negative influence on small children, say the authors on their page. Sign the guest book and help Save the Moomins

  1. I wonder if the cartoons were from Sweden or elsewhere? I heard of puppets, clay and drawn animation… is there anything available on dvd? anyone with info on this, please post!

  2. When I read this, tears welled up in my eyes. Who could want to ban a moomin, a snufkin, or a snorkmaiden for that matter? Moomin teach good values. Enjoy the simple and beautiful things in life and love your family and friends. Sometimes they have a glass a wine. Moomins live in Europe, after all. Save the Moomins! Moominpappa for President!
