Their testicles then swell up to about 10 feet in diameter and they dropped out of the sky and flattened the humans with their massive balls.

**takes breath**

It's a myazaki film about the Japanese myths concerning racoons. And yes, they can stretch their balls to gigantor proportions.

It's still a great kid's movie. All my friends' children love it.

Have them watch Grave of the Fireflies. Not technically Myazali animated, but probably one of the best anime film around.
2005-08-17 11:58:18 PM  
Wow, and they even thought it was a Disney film. Tragic.
2005-08-18 12:11:29 AM  
That is priceless. Myazaki is king. That is all.
2005-08-18 12:11:29 AM  
Why would you think it's Disney? Because it's cartoon and has animals?

And how could you say something is "bizarre and boring,".

I'm more baffled by this toolshed than I am by ginormous nutties.

You're right, GOTF isn't strictly a Myazaki-animated film, it sits proudly in my (as near complete as I can get) "Myazaki/Ghibli Collection" DVDs I give out to friends with Kids.
2005-08-18 12:19:56 AM  

Disney is the authorized distributor for Ghibli-produced animation in the US.

YES finally, this is my favorite one. Now I can watch it on ANY DVD player!!

Gotta love them Tanuki nads!

(they're not technically raccoons, they look similar, but they're a distinct species)

2005-08-18 2:49:24 AM  
And I have to be amused at those who are offended by animals actually shown having sex organs (well, aside from the size thing)...

Silly north americans...

Japanese myth. It's why Mario turns into a raccoon when he a touches a leaf, which didn't make sense to me until I read that article.
2005-08-18 3:14:10 AM  
holy crap. cannot stop laughing at that article. and Syder's picture just compounds it
2005-08-18 3:14:50 AM

The video of that thing Syder just posted
2005-08-18 3:17:45 AM
This is a funny-arse picture.^
2005-08-18 3:19:34 AM  
Syder beat me to it. In japan they also have parades with giant penii and kids ride on top of the giant penii and no one gets hurt. But i say we force japan to be more culturly like the US, hell weve basically done it already.
2005-08-18 3:20:22 AM  
actually, GIS has a few good ones..
2005-08-18 3:21:09 AM  
Since the previous number of testicles in Disney films was zero, it wasn't a 100% increase.
2005-08-18 3:23:25 AM  
I usually don't like being the one picky about spellings, but since nobody's spelled it right so far- it's Miyazaki.
2005-08-18 3:23:31 AM  
breatheophelia: The picture of the DVD even boldly proclaims, "Walt Disney Home Entertainment presents"

Pom Poko is bizarre, generally slow, and features a baffling number of raccoon scrotums
I am laughing so freaking hard right now I think I've woken up everyone around me

2005-08-18 03:08:31 AM Syder

have you seen that whole commercial? It's for a company called "Anabuki", apparently they build apartment complexes and the tag line for that commercial is "Where everything's bigger".

2005-08-18 3:30:49 AM  
Disney may distribute it in the US, but even at the top he says it was originally released in Japan in 1994 with a Japanese name and so should have figured out that it isn't a Disney produced film. You would think someone doing movie reviews would at least have some idea how things work and realise this movie is not a Disney film.

the little "wow" moment comes rather by surprise in that clip.

so.. er.. what the HELL was that?
2005-08-18 3:32:30 AM  
Besides, shouldn't it be "raccoon scrota"?
2005-08-18 3:33:37 AM  
Why would you think it's Disney? Because it's cartoon and has animals?

That could be part of it, but I think most of the problem stems from the fact that it is actually a Disney film. They distribute it, anyway. They do all the Studio Ghili\bli stuff
2005-08-18 3:34:06 AM  
To follow the racoon/squirrel funny stories I was hoping someone would post the link to the blog of the motorcyclist who battled the squirrel (?) and finally won by unleashing it onto some unsuspecting cops.

2005-08-18 3:34:39 AM  
AndrewT, yeah I was kinda wondering about that. It's Miyazaki. The first syllable is "mi" not "mya". Mi-ya-za-ki.

And yeah, as already stated...despite the americanization of the movie, they're not Raccoons. They're Tannuki. They're actually in the canine family, they just have Raccoon features. I think of them as the Billy-Bumblers of the Japanese world.

/anal retentive geek mode: OFF

My friend Carlos runs what used to be one of the largest and most comprehensive Anime review sites out there (I think it still is actually), I read his review for Ponpoko years ago and STILL can't read it without being sent into gigglefit hysterics. If you have some time on your hands, I HIGHLY recommend it.
2005-08-18 3:35:26 AM  
thats better than the cover of the little dildo-maid.

Pom Poko is rated PG for violence, scary images and thematic elements.

the pokemon strike back woo hoo! they caught them with some ultraballs! lol.

Yeah "baffling number of raccoon scrotums" is mint and I plan on working it into my daily vocabulary.

Maybe to describe situations of unnecessary complexity:

"Man, this thing is hard to put together! These instructions are BNRS!

Or an irrational female type:

Im done with her, that chick has gone BNRS!

Hi-larious. Pom Poko is a great film. Unfortunately, people expect "all ages" when they buy something with the Disney brand on it. Pom Poko, like Nausiccaa, Porco Rosso and Princess Mononoke was written for slightly older audiences.

Although Porco Rosso is a perfectly suitable kids film, Miyzaki wrote it for "middle aged salarymen who's brains had turned to tofu from overwork".

For younger kids, I'd reccomend Laputa: Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, and Kiki's Delivery Service.

Spirited Away and Whisper of the Heart are targeted squarely at pre-teenage girls, but are enjoyable by all.

Grave of the Fireflies and Only Yesterday I'd reccomend for mature audiences only. Grave because it's extremely depressing, and Only Yesterday because younger kids might fall asleep watching it.

My Neighbors the Yamadas is another dramatic animated film by Takahata (the other major director besides Miyazaki at Ghibli) which is done in a pencil sketch style. It is an excellent commentary on modern Japanese family life.

One of Miyazaki and Takahata's strengths (especially Takahata) is the ability to make animated films with serious dramatic acting. It's very hard on the animators. (easy to draw a demon, hard to draw a dog, as they say)

For more info, check out

For all of these films, I find the subtitled versions more enjoyable. (I believe almost all the American DVDs are dual language with subtitles, so you can take your pick of subbed vs. dubbed)
2005-08-18 3:53:05 AM  
Ah, yes, our friends the Japanese.

Silly Japanese. Everyone knows that putting all those penuses and scrotums on the TV will make people more inclined to rape others.

/Oh wait.
