Moomin is a well-loved children’s cartoon. My friends and I have fond memories of watching the show in Afrikaans when we were kids (some of them can still sing the entire intro song). I was surprised to discover that Moomin is a Finnish creation. The Finns are very proud of Moomin, and its legacy can be seen everywhere – from grocery items to antique stores to artist studios. Most of the following photographs were taken in Finland, but some are from Sweden. Moomin can be spotted in all the corners of Scandinavia.
The Moomin site is really nice.
