Questions about Moomins


#1

So you know the parents are called Moomin Papa and Moomin Mama, and their boy is just Moomin - well, did they like start off Moomin and then earn the name or were they like growing up with the name Papa and Mama or whatever?

Also is it set in our world because it doesn’t seem so but then they go on holiday to just regular human places?

Speaking of humans why aren’t they a little more perturbed by these sentient grey rounded things hanging about?

What is their general aim?

And why is the girl one not called anything to do with moomin? The rest of them clearly are.

Always assumed they were little cartoon hippos, but according to Wikipedia, "They are a family of white, roundish fairy tale characters with large snouts that make them resemble hippopotamuses"
The plot thickens

Yeah he doesn’t stay so cool in the face of raw human emotion


Let’s agree to ignore whatever the fuck happens at the end with the hippo policeman cosplayer

Hey @Ruffers I think you should read this book, it’s genuinely amazing and beautiful even though it’s technically a children’s book and you will definitely identify with the main character

They just want to dream and plant potatoes in peace. Don’t you know anything Rory?


#16

The dad has a midlife crisis and decides they’re all gonna go off to live in a lighthouse at one point.

Moomin’s girlfriend is called Snorkmaiden. She has a brother called Snork. I guess It’s good he is not dating his relatives.


#18

They are also brother and sister.

Moominpapa was raised in an orphanage, so it’s an adopted name I think. Might have been ironic initially but there’s a yearning for (and distrust of) the traditional family dynamic running through a lot of his (often wilful and reckless) behaviour.

Think I’ve said this before on the boards but I found moomins terrifying as a kid.
