** Ponyo has three "stages" of transformation: fish, [[strike:[[TheWindInTheWillows Mr Toad]]]] frog/amphibian thing, and human. When put in context with Fujimoto's talk of evolution and pre-history, Ponyo's speed evolution is a nice touch.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Granted ponyo isn't an ordinary sea creature, but normally putting sea creatures in fresh water is deadly to said sea creatures.

''Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea'' (''Gake no Ue no Ponyo'') is a 2008 film by {{anime}} master Creator/HayaoMiyazaki and Creator/StudioGhibli. ''Very'' loosely based on the Creator/HansChristianAndersen story ''Literature/TheLittleMermaid'', the movie follows the adventures of Ponyo, a sort of...[[BuffySpeak goldfishy thing]], and her quest [[PinocchioSyndrome to become human]] and be with [[InterspeciesRomance the boy she loves]].

''Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea'' (''Gake no Ue no Ponyo'') is a 2008 film by {{anime}} master Creator/HayaoMiyazaki and Creator/StudioGhibli. Loosely ('''''very''''' loosely) based on the Creator/HansChristianAndersen story ''Literature/TheLittleMermaid'', the movie follows the adventures of Ponyo, a sort of... [[BuffySpeak goldfishy thing]], and her quest [[PinocchioSyndrome to become human]] and be with [[InterspeciesRomance the boy she loves]].

In comparison with Miyazaki's other works, this is a return to his more whimsical, SliceOfLife movies such as ''Anime/MyNeighborTotoro'' and ''Anime/KikisDeliveryService''. The difference is, it's also his only movie that is directly aimed at the under-ten set. The result is that many long-time Miyazaki fans [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids didn't know what to make of it]]. It is also the studio's first film in years not to feature any CGI. ''It's all hand drawn'' (though the drawback is that it does look dated despite being made in the 2000's).

* GratuitousJapanese: Amazingly, Disney didn't try to localize this movie [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment unlike certain other dubbers]]. The English dub preserves a few UsefulNotes/JapaneseHonorifics that have "loanword" status ["-san," mostly, and "sensei"], possibly to help enforce the fact that this takes place in Japan.

* HugeGirlTinyGuy: Ponyo's mother is huge compared to her father. She can change her size to match his though.
