I never heard anybody claiming that. Who you're talking about?


Most of the juornalists. As a payback, I guess, because Kimi is not so easy on them. :$

I dont know about across the pond but over here "journalists" are no longer revered. The public has gotten sick of all the bias in reporting on all fronts. There are a few that remain respected, but "most of the journalists" should be ignored. Take them with a grain of salt, if that much.

If they want to bash Kimi just because he didnt kiss ass let them. We can see through them.

Moomins were absolutely my favourite cartoon characters as a young child. I watched the TV series all the time, owned stuffed moomins and a Moomin house....

actually sometimes even now I like to watch them on TV :blush: the stories are so cute and they bring back memories of my childhood.

you can watch some of the episodes on Youtube in English (or in Finnish of course) if you are interested :lol: for example here's the first part of the first episode in english:

I think journos kicking him in his last years was mostly due to his supposed "lack of motivation". Which was part of the "let's Kimi to get kicked out from Ferrari to make place for Unfairnando" campaign. I don't think that his fairness ever earned him bad press

It's just a name :) In Finnish it's spelled a little different: Muumi.

So nice to hear from you Moominpappa :hug:! But I'm also glad that you've spent some time with your family instead of us for a change :p.

I watched the Moomin show on tv as a child and I must say that it wasn't my favorite. I though it was a bit creepy and weird :blush: :D.

Here's something for Red's daughter (I must warn you that all the Moomin stuff costs like crazy):

And here's Pelle Hermanni, my childhood's favorite tv character (now that I look at him I don't quite know why I thought he was the greatest whereas the Moomins were creepy and weird :lol:):
