** Many fans were ''pissed'' when the 2010 re-release of the English dub removed most of Phil Hartman's ad-libbed lines, saying that it's disrespectful to his memory, as this was his last role before his death. Similarly, much handwringing ensued when fans found that Sydney Forest's songs were replaced with the original Japanese tracks. When ''Anime/SpiritedAway'' came to Blu-Ray five years later, its English dub didn't have any of its added dialogue edited out.

When ''Anime/SpiritedAway'' came to Blu-Ray five years later, its Disney later released Miyazaki's post-''Kiki'' movies on Blu-Ray, none of their English dub didn't have dubs had any of its added dialogue edited out.(such as ''Anime/SpiritedAway'''s last chat between Chihiro and her dad) removed.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeArt: Well, it's a Creator/HayaoMiyazaki movie, so this is expected, but in particular the ending scene with Kiki on the borrowed broom is incredibly animated.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Very few people outside Japan realize that the movie is actually based on a book. The popularity of the film led to the translation of the book.
* CounterpartComparison: Jiji is sometimes compared to Salem from ''{{ComicBook/Sabrina The Teenage Witch}}'', since he's a snarky black cat belonging to a young witch, and can talk. The fact that his Phil Hartman-dubbed voice is somewhat similar to Salem's on [[{{Television/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch}} the TV show]] doesn't hurt.

* WTHCastingAgency: Critics of the live action version say the main lead was a little too old to convincingly play a 13 year old.

* NightmareFuel: The entire sequence with the blimp crashing into the city with Tombo hanging on for dear life. Anybody who gets anxious about heights is bound to be tense during these moments. The scene itself, being what it is is also likely to evoke recollections of the ''Hindenburg'' disaster.

* HilariousInHindsight: Changing the dub line from 'coffee' to 'cocoa', especially considering that in years since, many children have been drinking coffee since a very young age.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: Because of some of the parallels Ursula makes comparing her art to Kiki's magic, magic can be seen as an allegory for art, with Kiki's illness and depression being art block (or actual illness and depression that prevents one from doing their craft), and the joy of regaining one's desire to do art.

* UnfortunateImplications: After Kiki is chased out of the forest by an angry flock of crows her cat Jiji remarks on how they used to serve witches; to which Kiki responds with "[[OldShame That was a long time ago]]!"

* SubbingVersusDubbing: Not the only Ghibli dub to receive such an atmosphere (''Anime/CastleInTheSky'' and ''Anime/MyNeighborTotoro'' also qualify), but many viewers can't seem to decide whether the Disney dub is a charming, entertaining experience or a watered down travesty of a great film. Purists strongly claim it is the latter (often stating that the Japanese version and the Carl Macek-produced Streamline dub is the ONLY way you should watch the film), but there are fans of the dub. The German dub gets a similar, if ever so slightly less extreme, treatment.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Kiki and the two elderly ladies see the chaos unfolding on TV when heavy winds send the blimp flying out of control. Barsa is getting a little too much entertainment out of this like she's just watching a movie. That is until Kiki spots Tombo being lifted away....
