I grew up in the 60s and 70s and read the Mumin books and also saw Mumin on TV. The actors wore Mumin suits and in the end of the episode (IIRC) they took their big Mumin heads off and I was scared to death by it.
Over all I never like the stories much, they were too melancholic (very Finnish) and sometimes too weird for my taste.
I always preferred the books by Astrid Lindgren.
