YMMV / Miffy

Go To

  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Miffy seems gets more merchandise in Japan than it's native Netherlands.
  • Periphery Demographic: Miffy merchandise is also popular with adults.
  • Tear Jerker: Dear Grandma Bunny which is also recommended by bereavement organisations as a way of helping to explain the death of someone to young children.
    • Any time Miffy loses her teddy bear, which puts her immediately in tears.
      • There's actually a whole STORY dedicated to this (Miffy is Crying a.k.a. Why Miffy Cried) where Miffy wakes up crying when her teddy seemingly disappears. She spends the entire story tearfully asking around if they've seen it, but to no avail. If that wasn't sad enough, when she visits her aunt, the latter feels so sorry for Miffy, that she starts crying as well. The melancholy music in the Storybook Classics adaptation doesn't help either. Things turn OK in the end, but still...
      • There's also "Miffy's Lost Teddy" from Miffy & Friends. While not entirely dedicated to this (it pretty much occurs literally at the last minute), it's still hard not to feel bad for Miffy, when her teddy falls out of the car on the way home. Thankfully, Snuffy sees this and runs back to the forest to retrieve it.


How well does it match the trope?
