Moomin is the brainchild of the late Finnish author and illustrator Tove Jansson. She released her first Moomin book in 1945 and received commercial success a year later with the release of Comet in Moominland and Finn Family Moomintroll.
Moomin is a very popular series in Scandinavian countries. Who couldn't love the adorable Moomin creatures, Sniff, Snufkin, Moominpappa, Moominmamma, Moomintroll, Grok and all of the other characters brought to life throughout the comic series? Moomin's success was followed by TV series and films, stop-motion films and much more. The Moomin's have been brought to life in many different ways and I can't wait to get even nerdier about it! Bjork even lent her vocals to "The Comet Song," featured exclusively for the 3D-movie Moomins and the Comet Chase. Check out music video and song here.
Alrighty, back to my pumpkin-spiced coffee and Moomin...
