Moomin owes much of its unique brilliance to its inversion of traditional argumentation. Whereas it is not unusual for an essay to recourse to fantastic thought experiment to complement its strict reasoning, Moomin builds strictly verisimilar situations out of an aesthetics of wild illogic.

Sesame Street teaches youngsters how to count less explicitly than this film laments the sexual mores of France, circa 1950.
