5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE the Moomins! 11 Oct 2008
This is the second in the series of the 90's animated version of the Moomins.

As with the previous release,the picture and sound quality are not perfect and the quality control could have been better(on the list of episodes,one episode is incorrectly titled 'Hurry Up Snifkin',instead of Snufkin),but there's no major issues.

And as I have mentioned on my review of the first series of the Moomins I am prepared to put up with a few flaws just to see this imaginative,charming and mystical cartoon again!

If anyone is interested in the other series of the Moomins,I have emailed Stax Entertainment who is involved in producing these DVD's and they told me "Volume 3 will be out around Easter next year with Volume 4 around September next year and hopefully 2 more series during 2010."

If you are a fan of the Moomins,I would recommend you buy this now as it is a brilliant show and really captures the magic of the books(which were written by Tove Jansson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent as a series 17 Nov 2009
Firstly, the bad points: That is, the one bad point. The art on the boxset/menu screen is obviously not the geniune art is an incredibly lazy imitation. Was it so had to just get a screenshot?

The good points: Completely ignore the above because MOOMIN. This is an incredible series. I loved it as a child, and my partner and I recently thought it wise to purchase the DVD sets. And We were not dissappointed in any way. The characters are just as I remembered them (Snufkin was always a favourite and still is) and wow. It's an engaging program, and it somewhat follows a storyline, not so much that you'd need to have seen all the previous episodes, but it's not just Random Episode followed by Random Episode, like a lot of children's television (and some television meant for adults these days...). And the best thing is, it isn't patronising, so as an adult, it isn't embarrassing to watch. If you enjoyed Moomin in the 90s, you'll still enjoy it, and if you have children, I'd recommend showing them what Mummy/Daddy used to watch, as it's far better than whatever rubbish they're showing these days! [But of course, buy the first volume first!]

Avid Moomin followers often give this cartoon series a hard time, simply for daring to be a little inventive with the source material. As J.K. Rowling understands with the movie adaptations of the Harry Potter books, source and adaptation will never be the same, and any attempts at keeping them landlocked together may hurt the integrity of the adaptation. Bulls TV Tokyo and Telecable Beneluxe thankfully understood this when making this Moomin cartoon series. It stays close enough to the books but still with plenty of air to allow it to grow into something special on its own (the makers of the 2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series would do good to learn from this example).

This is the second set of the English dub Moomin series, and features 13 episodes. This is when the series really was getting on a roll, and indeed this set spans many of my favourite episodes. "A Change of Air" is one of my biggest favourites, essentially two episodes in one, where Moominpappa decides to run away to search for adventure. "A Close Encounter with Aliens" is delightful as well. Though both are based on two comic strip stories by Tove Jansson, they are much more developed and deeper here (especially "A Change of Air", a good peak into the character of Moominpappa). The two-episode lighthouse saga is also one I love, though they really should have decided whether to base it off "Moominpappa at Sea" or the comic strip lighthouse story. They try to do both at once and it ends up making the story a bit unfocused. But only just, mind you. Then the whole winter story is here, and in the cartoon the number of guests is limited to the two most memorable ones from the novel Moominland Midwinter; the little dog Sorry-oo, looking for his brothers the wolves, and the Healthy Hemulen who eats a lot of jam.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great memories. 26 July 2009
Verified Purchase
I remember watching these when I was a kid (about 12 yo circa 1990).
Now I live in Finland (home of the Moomins)and as such am subjected to the Finnish version constantly.
So I bought vol 1 & vol 2 (English lang) for my kids to watch. They love it, I love it, and even our Finnish friends love it!
Really great story lines, charismatic characters, lovely animation, and hauntingly beautiful music.
I'd highly recommend this dvd to any parent, and maybe even the kids would love it too ;0).

3.0 out of 5 stars Still love the show but what a bad edition ! 24 Jun 2014
Be honest, this edition is a shame, and being cheap doesn't give the rights to be that bad. The design of the box is a joke, as well as the menu of the dvds, and the quality of the picture and the sound are poor, considering that those are dvds.

Actually, it's like watching an old video tape, really ! So it would deserve 0 star, or maybe - 5 stars, but there is the show, still so great after all those years, and it is so cool to be able to watch it even in those conditions.

I'm a fan of the original comics by Tove Jansson but think the show is great too, accessible for the youngest and enjoyable for the oldest. I hope that someday, a good and really complete edition will be done (you only have a part of the serie here). I can imagine what Little My would say about this edition ;-)
