Moomintroll, the youthful main character, is the son of Moominmamma and Moominpappa. His friends include Sniff (a mouse-like Kangaroo), Snufkin (a carefree and wise wanderer), the Snork Maiden (Moomintroll's egotistical love interest), her brother the Snork (who became a bumbling genius in the cartoon to make up for his complete lack of personality), Little My (the bratty and practical half-sister of Snufkin), the Mymble (her older sister) and a cast of thousands composed of Fillyjonks, Hemulens, Park Keepers, Tofts, Hattifatteners and one big ol' Groke -- the monstrous personification of winter depression.

Added DiffLines:

* ADogNamedDog: The Snork and the Snork Maiden, at least one Hemulen and both Mymbles, amongst others, are referred to only by their fictional species.


Added DiffLines:

* PromotedToParent: The Mymble's daughter takes responsibility for her sister Little My. (The Mymble is a rather hands-off parent, due to having so many children.)

* BeenThereShapedHistory: Parodied in the first time-travel story in the comics. The Moomins bungle around The Wild West, only armed with waterguns -- when they return back to their own time, it turns out that their misadventures led to waterguns becoming incredibly popular. In the new timeline, ''everyone'' owns a watergun (Sniff even informs Moominmamma that ''she'' owns two!).

* LostInTranslation: In ''The Exploits of Moominpappa'', when Little My hears that the Muddler and the Fuzzy have just gotten married, she cheerfully announces that they've gone off and poisoned themselves -- because in Swedish, the word for "married" is the same as the word for "poison." This pun was impossible to translate into most languages; in the English translation she just says something generic about "they're in real trouble now."

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In the 1990 anime, when the Moomins are telling the Groke to leave, because she is frightening Thingumy and Bob and ''freezing Moominamma's roses'''. This is, however, averted in the original Japanese dub (see {{Bowdlerization}} below).


Added DiffLines:

** In the original Japanese dub when the Groke first appears, Moominpappa threatens to shoot her if she won't leave, and Moomintroll and Moominmamma say that they will hit her head. Other dubs changed this to them saying that she is upsetting Thingumy and Bob and freezing Moominmamma's roses.
** The original version of the episode "The Pirates" contains a close-up of Little My biting the pirate's hand after he kidnaps Snorkmaiden. For some reason, every other dub cuts this scene.
