* FanonDiscontinuity: Not very many people like the 1990s series' 3rd season, ''Bouken Nikki'', too much.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Uniquely, the Moomins fit this trope and WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids. The later books in the series ''aren't'' really children's books (something which Tove Jansson herself acknowledged), touching on a lot of themes that kids won't understand. The newspaper comic, while less dark, contains a lot of satire directed primarily at adults: The Moomins' bohemian lifestyle is often mocked, with the characters played for fools in a lot of subtle ways, but other, more "normal" lifestyles are frequently held up for examination and found to be even more foolish. At the same time, earlier books and works which ''are'' primarily directed at children, contain some pretty dark undertones and subtle adult humor. The '90s animated series and its spin-offs are more clearly aimed at children (though even there the undertones aren't completely gone AND The Groke is still there), which is the main reason why so many older Moomin fans don't like it.

* MemeticMutation: '''EVERYONE''' in Scandinavia and Poland is afraid of the Groke, no exceptions. The show was immensely popular, and everyone of the generation that watched the 90's animated series remembers that freaking thing. It was one of the ONLY times in Scandinavia that a show was pulled off the air (for a time) because parents called and complained about it being too scary. That almost never happens there.

* BrokenBase: It's not volatile, unlike 99% of the internet, but Moomin fans can't seem to decide which foreign dub of the series is best. English? Finnish? Polish? French?
** Also, whether the heavily Bowdlerized anime series is an acceptable adaptation at all. Especially older fans (i.e. the parents of the generation who saw the series in the 90's) seems to be more hostile towards it.
