Mug Muddler was released in 2010 and the production was discontinued in 2019. Tove Slotte designed the pattern, and the original images were chosen from Tove and Lars Jansson’s comic strip #21 Fuddler’s Courtship. The image on the front side of the mug is from a rarely seen die-cut scrap sheet designed by Tove Jansson in 1969. The pan on Muddler’s head was slightly altered to match Muddler’s hat in the comic strip.
