''Totoro'' is one of Miyazaki's best known films, and it's considered a classic even by western critics (Creator/RogerEbert called it "the best family film of all time", and Creator/JonathanRoss says it's one of his favourite films). Totoro himself became the mascot for Studio Ghibli. Miyazaki does not gloss over some of the more frightening aspects of childhood, though: the girls are terrified of their mother dying, a common goat seems monstrous from little Mei's perspective, and the whole village's fright and anxiety when Mei goes missing is almost palpable. Even Totoro--with his huge grin, inscrutable expression, and manic eyes--can be a little scary; Satsuki refers to meeting him as both the funniest and the scariest day of her life.

* NoAntagonist: As the DVD release points out, the movie was designed to be devoid of conflict.

* NoAntagonist: As the DVD release points out, the movie was designed to be devoid of conflict. YMMV if fear that one's mother is dying counts.


Added DiffLines:

* RandomEventsPlot: With the exception of Totoro himself and the girls' worrying that their mother might be dying, nothing really happens in this moive. It's just two girls hanging out in their new home.

* GoodParents: Professor Kusakabe is probably one of the nicest fathers in all of anime--and he's ''effective'' as a parent, to boot. He never talks down to his daughters, even when they're talking about having seen Totoro; not even the audience can really tell whether he honestly believes them or is simply humoring them. And judging from the way Mei and Satsuki adore her, it's pretty clear their mother qualifies, too.

* GirlsHaveCooties: Kanta starts out with this attitude, but soon gets over it.

If anything he seems to value their imaginations. And judging from the way Mei and Satsuki adore her, it's pretty clear their mother qualifies, too.
