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. Together with his human, Moomin, and animal friends, he plays within the valley and has plenty of adventures and misadventures along the way. While sometimes a little scary and sometimes cute and funny, there’s always a lesson to be learned in Moominvalley.
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.
