Moomins are a race of white creatures that somewhat resemble upright-walking hippos. Moomintroll is a curious, young Moomin boy who lives with his family in Moominvalley.

While sometimes a little scary and sometimes cute and funny, there’s always a lesson to be learned in Moominvalley.
Both of these shows are aimed at kids and have a certain episodic adventerous quality about them with characters going about their daily life in a strange world. Some of these characters have mysterious sides to them as wellMoomin has Snufkin, and HHC has TabiUsagi who have traveled the world and have seen sights. Both are also light hearted romps and have that 80's feel to them.
Many insects call the underbrush and flowerbeds of the garden their home; one such insect is Maya, a curious and friendly honeybee who enjoys a good adventure and a playful time with others. Along with her friends Willy the Bee and Phillip the grasshopper, Maya meets a variety of characters including a lonely cricket, lofty cockroach, and steadfast army ants! Whether it's hiding from the sun or avoiding mean wasps, there's always a good time to be had in the world of the small!
Both have a cast of characters set in fantastical worlds where we get to see a 'slice of life' of the characters everyday lives. However these aren't quite the ordinary. Someone is always getting into some kind of trouble or some crisis needs to be solved. Both of these are kids shows that have a similar episodic format style to them and both of them have that old 80s kids show feel to them before the time of Dragon Balls and Narutos.
