''Magic Adventures of Mumfie'' is a 1990's animated series/movie created by Britt Allcroft of ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' fame. It centers around Mumfie, a special elephant who lives alone in a cottage in the woods. Every morning he runs to his letter box hoping for an adventure tied up in a parcel. One day, Mumfie realizes that this is not possible and sets off to find one. Along the way, Mumfie meets a lot of friends, such as Scarecrow, Pinkey the Flying Pig, and a whale who doubles as a passenger ship.

* {{Animesque}}: When the series returned to Hulu and Netflix in TheNewTens, many people unfamiliar with the series called it an anime when it was actually British. And it's not hard to see why they would say that-the characters look like they've come from a Studio Ghibli film, there are lots of [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Ridiculously Cute Critters]] in the show, Mumfie's winking using the 0_< style, the characters having WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises when they are shocked in "The Amazing Scarecrow", a villian who predates shojou anime villians such as [[Anime/YumeNoCrayonOukoku the Grim Reaper]] and [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Zakkena]], and Scarecrow occasionally using a ]_[ style of eyes when smiling or sleeping. The first and second seasons were actually animated in Canada, and the most anime-esque season, the third, was animated in Spain.

* GoingCommando: A few episodes, like "Sea of Surprises", "Mumfie's White Christmas" (though you'd only find it in these two if you pause it when Mumfie is going to bed), "Cabin Fever" (another hidden frame when Mumfie climbs on top of a chest) and "Upside-Down Magic" reveal that Mumfie doesn't wear underwear. WordOfGod says that the animators didn't feel like drawing it on because it would be considered as [[PeopleSitOnChairs not doing anything notable to the plot]].
