Movie Name?

Postby Jack Sarratt » Fri Apr 14, 2006 12:53 pm

Hello, Jack here! I recently watched part of an anime last night, and I didn't catch the name. It had a strange set of animal characters that didn't talk, only smiled with teeth and made noises. I think one of the animals was called Tataro or Totaro. Another animal was a multi-legged cat. It had at least 10 legs, and it acted like a bus! Any help here?!
People say to not judge a book by its cover, but first make sure you picked the right title.

Luckily, I saw this on last night, although I didn't watch it. It was Myazaki's My Neighbor Totaro, as a part of Cartoon Network's Month of Myazaki. It's considered a classic, and Roger Ebert (who I despize for reasons of my own) claimed that it was the single best anime movie he ever saw (at the time, the only other one he'd seen, however, was Kiki's Delivery Service).

I've been watching Tonari no Totoro to help with my Japanese! It's one of the only animes that I can watch fully without subtitles!!!
