Moomins and the Comet Chase

Synopsis: One day Moomintroll notices that something strange has happened in the Moomin Valley - everything is grey; not just the sky and the river, but the trees, the ground, the Moominhouse, too! Moomintroll runs to ask the well-read Muskrat if he knows what is happening. Muskrat declares that this is the way things tend to look like before the earth faces an awful fate coming from the sky... With the help of his father, Moominpappa, Moomintroll and his worried friends build the best raft ever and start on a challenging journey to the observatory. The wise professors there must know what the threat from space is all about! The trek is not easy. The brave entourage, Moomintroll, Sniff and Snufkin face many obstacles, yet also meet new and old friends. But they make it to the observatory: the professor calculates that a ferocious comet will reach the Earth in four days, four hours, four minutes and 44 seconds. Maybe 4 seconds later. It's time to go back home as fast as they can - surviving an un
75 min

Huh! You missed!

You should have aimed

at the Sun.

Well you see,

The universe is very big.

The Earth is very small.

It's not easy

for a comet to hit us.

But what,

what if it's angry?

Dear, Muskrat

has frightened the children

with his stories about

the end of the world.

Maybe they should

visit an observatory.

A what?

An observatory.

It's a special place to look at the stars.

There's one in the Lonely Mountains,

a little ways down the river.

Hmm, that's a good idea!

What'll we do?

Children, Pappa and I

think you should take a trip.

to where scientists look at stars.

They work in an observatory.

But first, we have to build

a raft for the river trip.

Yipee! Yipee!

We're going on a trip!


The-the scientists will know if

there really is a comet coming this way.

And-and maybe they can tell us

where all this dust comes from.

Moominpappa had been to sea

so he knew all about building a raft.

Looks like you'll have

fine travelling weather tomorrow.

How can you tell?

From looking at the night sky.

Can you see the comet?

Forget the comet for now.

Yes, come on in

for your bedtime snack.

That night, the stars

twinkled brightly,

just as they had always done.

Early next morning,

the family hurried

down to the river with

anything and everything

he two young adventurers

would need for the trip.

Thanks Momma, I'm not sure

we'll need the umbrella.

Moomintroll was thinking

how much fun it would be if

if Snufkin and Snork Maiden could

come along too.

But, maybe next time.

You don't often see a raft

as good as this.

If I do say so myself.

That's everything.

Bye, Mamma!

Bye, Pappa!

Here I come.

One small animal ready for

big adventures.

Here, catch!

Carefull Sniff!

Oh! Uhh!

Uhh. help!

I'm swimming!
