My Neighbor Totoro isn’t the best of the Studio Ghibli films (that would have to be The Wind Rises), but recent experiences have made me realize why it deserves its reputation as the most important.

He has to commute to the university in Tokyo. Then what is this "Mei and the Kittenbus" I've heard about? He intentionally put no picture of them and Totoro together in the ending title. Yes. In the scene where Satsuki and Mei saw the Catbus at the bus stop for the first time, it said "Tsukamori".

Instead, he put pictures of Satsuki and Mei playing with other children. Yes. It is ridiculously simple, which fits for this, Miyazaki’s simplest, most digestible film (that I have seen). At first the third act felt a little forced, with Mei getting lost. During the scene at the bus stop in the rain, where Totoro appears next to Satsuki as she carries her sleeping sister on her back, Totoro simply stands there as drops of rain drip onto its snout from the leaf on its head.

The name "Totoro" comes from Mei mispronouncing (she has a tendency to do so, though it wasn't clear in the dub) the word "tororu", which is the Japanese word for "troll".

The enduring popularity of "Totoro" means toys and related items will never go out of stock. So they thought up the idea of risk-sharing. No – the revelation that he was sidelined by a flat tyre means he really was trying to get to the hospital for Satsuki. Disney acquired the global distribution rights for Ghibli movies, including Totoro, but their version was delayed until March 2006 due to legal wrangling. I don’t really like whimsy – at least not since it killed my dog. But there are such wonderful moments that come from it, such as the sandal scare, and Satsuki truly in panic mode over her little sister’s whereabouts.

Since this would make no sense to American children, the dub changed it to "Mei drew this picture for you". Some of Miyazaki’s direction didn’t make it into the movie, and after reading through the book, we’re now seeing some of the scenes in a different light. Totoro’s missing dialogue, Kanta’s final revelation, and… Totoro has a crush on Satsuki?!
