This Day In History: November 4, 1988

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. I just asked my daughter if she's seen this and she said, "Oh, the Miyazaki film? Not yet, but I'm going to!"

    I somehow knew she would know what you were talking about. She's already made me watch Spirited Away and Kiki's Delivery Service. She's been very into anime for years and years now (she's 21).

    So I guess I'll be seeing it soon! LOL

    1. And see it you should! A favorite of our Squid!

  2. Disney does a great job with the dubs

    1. We actually watched the dubbed version after I wrote this post! A few minor differences but so enjoyable!


Why, hello there!
