Added DiffLines:
* HotBlooded: Gonta's loud answer to everything concerning humans is to go to war with them.

Added DiffLines:
* ItCantBeHelped: The tanuki have to "accept the unacceptable" and conform to humans' encroachment on their territory. Some turn into humans and adapt, others weather on as tanuki, but their golden days will never come back.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: Japanese culture (even children's songs) is full of earthy references to the Tanuki's most outstanding anatomical feature--unusually large testicles. Not surprisingly, Disney changed "scrotum" to "pouch" for the English dub -- but not the subtitles. Whether or not they fooled anyone is unclear. (Actually, given all the sight gags on that topic, the real surprise is that Disney did the release at all.)

* AllPartOfTheShow: An uinintentional version. To try and frighten the humans out of New Tama, the tanuki enact "Operation Specter", a massive parade of {{yokai}} and monsters. However, it merely amazes the humans, and a nearby amusement park takes credit for the show as a publicity stunt.

Directed by Isao Takahata, ''Pom Poko'' deftly fulfills Ghibli's dual missions of advocating for the environment and preserving traditional Japanese culture by presenting a cautionary environmental story ''and'' a raucous exploration of Japanese folklore all wrapped up a bittersweet tale of the costs of urban sprawl told from perspective of the displaced animals.

** Part of Disney's contract with Studio Ghibli was that they wouldn't edit any of the studio's films. This after the terrible fate of ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'' at the hands of New World Video. So, Disney released PomPoko unedited and hoped that nobody would notice.[[note]]That being said, Disney neglected to release Isao Takahata's ''Anime/OnlyYesterday'' and Goro Miyazaki's ''Anime/FromUpOnPoppyHill'' in the US (though ''Poppy Hill'' is being dubbed and prepped for release by GKIDS) because of "unacceptable" content - a discussion about menstruation in ''Only Yesterday'' and implied incest in ''Poppy Hill''.[[/note]]

The {{Tanuki}}, known as the "raccoon dog" in English (which is ''not'' related to the North American Raccoon, as much as it might resemble one), occupies a very important place in Japanese traditional and popular culture. PomPoko takes full advantage of this by working in just about every Tanuki reference available from fairy tales, folklore and even nursery rhymes. Needless to say, most of these references are lost on non-Japanese audience. Unfortunately, as Takahata's partner Creator/HayaoMiyazaki has been known to lament, nowadays many of these things are lost on the increasingly urbanized Japanese as well.
