This Day In History...

On November 4, 1988, Tonari no Totoro is released in Japan. It would be dubbed in English and released in 1993 as My Neighbor Totoro. Disney acquired the rights and apparently released a better dubbed version in 2006.

Either way, if you have not seen this movie, you owe it to yourself (or your children) to rent it immediately.

  1. Love this movie! Sophia and I just watched it for the first time this summer. She really enjoyed it, too.

  2. I am not sure how I first discovered this, but it has been a family favorite for a while now.

    I used to use it as a culminating event when we studied "Japan" as the non-Totoro elements are very strong and evoke a certain feel for an "idelaized" version of Miyazaki's life growing up.


Why, hello there!
