YMMV: Kiki's Delivery Service
  • Adaptation Displacement: Very few people outside Japan realize that this movie is based on a book. The popularity of the film led to the translation of the book.
  • Broken Base: Not the only Ghibli dub to receive such an atmosphere (Castle in the Sky and My Neighbor Totoro 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.
  • Ear Worm: Love 'em or hate 'em, one cannot deny that the two added Sydney Forest songs are insanely catchy. You just may find yourself humming snatches of them weeks afterwards.
  • Gateway Movie: For a lot of 80s and 90s kids, this was their first entry to Studio Ghibli catalog and perhaps, even anime in general.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Jiji abruptly ceasing to talk in the English dub can be pretty chilling, knowing that it was Phil Hartman's final role before his murder.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: 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.
