Sometime in the 1990s, a company called ETVC Productions Inc. produced a pilot for an English dub of the early 1990s anime Tanoshii Mumin Ikka.[1] Helmed by producers Bunker Jenkins and Chris Henderson, the pilot was a dub of the thirteenth episode in the series - The Last Dragon on Earth.[2]

The dub, simply titled Moomin, features an entirely different, uncredited cast than the British English dub of the series. Notably, many of the characters have noticeable southern accents, implying that the production was done in the southern United States, or at least by southern actors.[1]

While information or footage of the pilot is all but completely unavailable on the internet, the full episode is available in full at The Paley Center for Media in both New York City, New York or Los Angeles, California. Its existence, along with credits for Bunker Jenkins and Chris Henderson, is documented on the online archive of the Paley Center for Media.[2]
