The Moomins

Japanese Cartoon 1 (JP, 1969-1970) back
Original title: Mumin

The first 26 episodes of this series produced by Tokyo Movie Shinsha were a big hit in Japan but very different to the original books. Fistfights, guns, booze, cars, and train robberies.. Easy to understand that Tove Jansson was very displeased about this cartoon, and didn't give her permission for overseas sales.
The rest of the series (episodes 27-65) was produced by Mushi Pro, closer to the original stories and got the permission to be sold overseas.
The first 26 episodes were released on VHS by Bandai Visual. Out of production.
