The aim of this research is to find out types of moral values in an Indonesian children’s cartoon movie entitled Si Juki the Movie: Panitia Hari Akhir. The design of this research is descriptive qualitative. The kinds of data are transcriptions related to conversations and actions from the seven characters in this movie. Observation sheet is used as the instrument to collect the data. The observation sheets consist of two tables, the first one is of moral values from conversations and the second one is of moral values from actions. The data were categorized based on Buzan’s moral values. The findings showed that there were eight moral values found in the conversations from the seven characters; they are trustworthiness, sympathetic to others, cooperativeness, thankfulness, love and affection, honesty, humbleness and bravery. Here, the dominant moral value is trustworthiness. Meanwhile, in the action part, no dominant moral values were seen, thus humbleness, cooperativeness and thankfulness were shown equally in this part. To conclude, all of the moral values found in the movie conveyed the basic value of life for children. Some Indonesian cultural values also reflected in the movie which demonstrated to the children on the identity of being Indonesians.
