Stinky is a small and irate creature who is always playing practical jokes on the other residents of Moominvalley. He does this out of spite – he really enjoys fooling people and pinching things. But he always gets found out.
Stinky’s other hobbies include eavesdropping, vandalism and duping the police. Stinky is very proud of his reputation as a crook and will go to any lengths to maintain it. Due to his pranks, people don’t tend to invite Stinky to parties or to join in with other activities, but he shows up uninvited anyway.
Stinky is a little simple and thinks only about himself. Stinky will steal anything, but he prefers valuable objects. Although he causes a lot of trouble, the Moomin family find it rather charming that they know a real rogue.
This black hairball appears in the first comic strip about Moomintroll.
