He Honolulu Advertiser Wednesday, December 30, 1998 C7 'Homicide' revisits its premier episode V. By Kinney Uttleficld Orange County Register How do you define brilliance? If s the 1993 season of "Homicide: life on the Street" If you still cherish the early years of the seminal, Baltimore-set cop show you can revisit its roots tomorrow in a New Year's Eve marathon on Court TV. This killer-cool dose of auld lang syne starts with the show's premiere episode "Gone for Goode" (original air date Jan. 31, 1993). (On Oahu, Court TV shares Channel 19 on Oceanic with the Odyssey network; Court TV is on during daytime hours.) "Homicide" is a series that debuted with deeply complex char acters already in place. In its first episode "Homicide's" shy mix of arresting cinematography, heart-tugging cases and sharply written cop philosophy was fully formed. But "Homicide" has changed over time. Still in its original run on NBC, it acquiesced to great pressure from the network to spike its ratings by becoming more accessible. Jazz pianist returns to Maui for two gigs Before he became one of Europe's favorite concert and jazz festival performers, pianist and singer David Paquette was a regular fixture at Lahaina's Pioneer Inn. to? riih.1 1 v run; Cartoon: Series with local touch FROM PAGE CI Hawaii will be formatted with a Hawaiian theme," Livson said. Singer Robi Kahakalau performs the Moomin theme music for the half-hour cartoon show, which is oriented for children and their parents. The theme music has been been translated into Hawaiian for the Hawaii showings. livson and a group of Maui investors had hoped to bring the Moomin Family to the Maui Tropical Plantation in Waikapu, creating a theme park facility in the commercial center displaying Hawaiian agricultural products. But public and political opposition blocked expansion of commercial activities at the Tropical Plantation. The Maui Planning Commission held up action after a 1997 hearing, while the investors said they would try to work out differences with Hawaiian cultural advocates who objected to the Moomins as non-Hawaiian. Avery Chumbley, Wailuku Agribusiness president, said the project is no longer planned for the Plantatioa Livson said he was disappointed that the Moomin Valley project failed in Waikapu, "but we got over it." A Moomin Shop has opened at the Wharf Cinema Center in Lahaina, selling Moomin- theme books, clothing, toys and other paraphernalia. Even if the Moomins are new to Hawaii, they are well-known outside the state, especially in Japan where the cartoon series is produced. They originated in Finland, where Livson was producing wildlife specials for Finnish television in 1973. He said he was disturbed at the quality of children's TV and conceived a program based on a popular Finnish children's book. A Finnish writer, Tove Jansson, created the characters in the 1940s in a series of children's books. The Moomins are a family of hippopotamus-like creatures who fish, farm and take care of the environment activities attuned to the economy and social life in Finland. A key character is Hemula, a botanist who promotes environmental awareness, Livson said. The programs are intended for the family, to teach people to be environmentally aware and secure, and at the same time having adventures that are nonviolent," he said. Livson said it took 18 years for him to convince Jansson to allow him to produce the Moomins for televisioa Once he succeeded, the the series became a hit not only in Europe, but in Japan.

He said he has initiated virtually all of the stories that have been turned into a series of half-hour cartoon programs produced in Tokyo since 1988. The shows are aired in 100 countries and in 35 languages, he said. There is a Moomin theme park in Finland and a second one under construction in Japaa A blue hippopotamus character is painted on aircraft of Finair, Finland's national airline. If they're not welcome at Waikapu, they are being welcomed at the KFVE studios, said Dan Schmidt, program director for NBC Hawaii News 8 and KFVE. "When Dennis offered something completely original, we had to take it," Schmidt said. "The beauty of this show and I'm speaking as a father of a 5-year-old this is a show I'd be happy to let my daughter watch." He said the station is optimistic about the appeal of the program with the addition ofKahakalau singing the theme in Hawaiian. The show is tentatively scheduled to run at 7:30 am Saturdays beginning this week. WAIKIKI f PtAHUHUlit lg (Hilton Hawn.
