Santa Totoro T-Shirt (Christmas Sweater Style). Of course, I know what Totoro is. How dare you question me on my knowledge of Japanese animation. My Neighbor Tortoro is like my second favorite movie. I own 37 of these shirts and you should too.
I’m watching that movie right now for 1,256th time. Of course, I know what it’s about. Totoro is this big dude that does some cute stuff like napping adorably. And don’t forget the epic journey of the sisters.
Maybe you’re not as cool as me and are not familiar or fond of Tortoro. If so, I’m not going to judge too harshly. I’ll just provide an alternative for your whimsical Xmas Tees.
Can you believe this film was released in 1988. I’m not even going to mention why that was a special year for me, but that’s almost 30 years ago. Unbelievable!

Wait, I thought I was part of a small club, who enjoyed this cult film, but judging from the effusive praise from people in high places, I’m guessing more people have seen the film, and remember it fondly, than I first thought.
For example, this little bit from the My Neighbor Totoro Wikipedia entry is quite impressive:
“My Neighbor Totoro was critically acclaimed and has amassed a worldwide cult following in the years after its release. The film and its titular character, Totoro, have become cultural icons. My Neighbor Totoro ranked 41st in Empire magazine’s “The 100 Best Films Of World Cinema” in 2010, and Totoro was ranked 18th on Empire’s 50 Best Animated Film Characters list. A list of the greatest animated films compiled by Terry Gilliam in Time Out ranked the film number 1. A similar list compiled by the editors of Time Out ranked the film number 3. The character made multiple cameo appearances in a number of Studio Ghibli films and video games and is recognized as one of the most popular characters in Japanese animation. Totoro was ranked 24th on IGN’s top 25 anime characters.”
