New Moomin (新ムーミン, Shin Mūmin) is the second anime television series adaptation of the Moomin book series by the Finnish illustrator and writer Tove Jansson.[1] It is a remake of the 1969-1970 Moomin series, which was loosely based on the books. It was produced in 1972 by Zuiyo Eizo and Mushi Production as part of the Calpis Comic Theater (later known as World Masterpiece Theater) and broadcast on Fuji TV.[1][2]


The series was produced as a remake after the 1969-70 series was cancelled after Jansson's complaints about its radical difference from how she wanted the series to be. Neither the series nor its 1969 predecessor broadcast outside Japan except Taiwan, which aired in TTV.[1] [3]

Unlike its predecessor, the series was more faithful to the books.[1][4]
