You have no idea how excited I was to find out yesterday that The Moomins (the beloved Finnish cartoon characters by illustrator and writer Tove Jansson) are now available on Netflix! Two very dear friends of ours are from Finland and introduced the Moomin series to us around the time our daughter was born. Our kids have been reading the Moomin books for years, so they were so happy to finally watch them in action. If you have Netflix, check out the animated series (and *swoon* in cut paper/fabric stop animation) available on instant streaming. Best thing is--it's entirely in English!
