Je ne connais pas du tout. Jolies peluches.
Bill Phillips: It was a strange series of books and animated films
Not me....
Bill Phillips: Where have you been Frank!!!?
I feel you're going through a second childhood - which seems perfect for a doting grandfather!
Bill Phillips: Joseph has a Moon book but Ted doesn't like them...or so he says grin

I remember them very well. Tove Janssen created them, I think..
Bill Phillips: Indeed he did. The voice over for British TV was done by Richard Murdoch

I’m afraid that had passed me by Bill. What era was this?
Bill Phillips: The books were written between 1945 and 1970 and there were only 8 in total. There was also a comic strip. All were originally published in Swedish. There was a TV series in the seventies I think and there have been various other films apparently.

I think they were around in the 70's and perhaps 80's
Bill Phillips: The books date back to 1945 and the last of the 8 was written in 1970. There was also a comic strip. The TV series I saw was in the seventies I think
Still very popular in the home country of Finland.
Bill Phillips: Judging by the shop I saw in Covent Garden the other day it is still popular here too Tom
Maureen remembers them, I was at work I guess when they were on.
Bill Phillips: Our Helen used to like them as I recall. I did too!

I heard of them but never knew what they looked like. My friend referred to her daughter as a Moonin. I like the one in the red and white stripped bathers.
Bill Phillips: Very fetching aren't they ?
