Moomin (ムーミン, Mūmin) is a Japanese anime television series which was broadcast on Fuji Television between 1969 and 1970. The series is loosely based on the Moomin books by the Finnish author Tove Jansson. A sequel series entitled Shin Muumin (New Moomin) was later released in 1972. However, Jansson never approved of these series, due to dramatic changes with the plots, overall atmosphere, and character personalities. The series was never translated into any languages or released outside Japan. It is also notably different from the later anime television series Moomin, released in the early 1990s, which was translated into many languages and released in dozens of countries. The later series relies more on the original Moomin books and comic strips.
