Moomin is the famous cartoon character in Finland.
Moomin characters (or Moomintrolls)are portrayed in the fairy‐tale novels by Tove Jansson, beginning with Kometjakten (1946; A Comet in Moominland, 1968). The Moomins are a variety of imaginary creatures, half‐animals, half‐dwarfs or trolls, inhabiting the self‐contained world of the Moomin valley. They are clearly human beings in disguise and often have prototypes in real life. The core of the family consists of Moominmamma, Moominpappa, and their son Moomintroll, who can be viewed as the central character of the novels.
