Moomin Animations - Thrills and Cuddles

The history of Moomin Animations.

Many different animated versions of Tove Jansson’s beloved Moomin books have been produced over the last 60 years. Who among us doesn’t cherish fond memories of sitting in front of the TV watching Moomin tales? You can now relive the experience at the Moomin Museum. There will be TVs showing different versions of Moomin animations in various techniques starting from the German marionette animation in 1959 to the latest production by Gutsy Animations. The exhibits include different manuscript versions, hand-drawn sketches, ready animation drawings, three-dimensional models, sound samples and digital mock-ups.
The animations also feature many of Jansson’s iconic original images, such as Moomintroll and Snufkin on the bridge and the Moominhouse sitting cosily in its spot in the valley. Alongside the animations, the Moomin Museum will present original illustrations from its collections – the “master versions” to which all the later animations owe their existence. A feature common to all the animations is that each one offers its own unique take on Tove Jansson’s Moomin books and comic strips.
