Recommended Viewing #2: Pom Poko

The greatest animation company ever, Studio Ghibli, produced this fantastic movie in 1992.  You can tell the makers of OVER THE HEDGE watched it but, boy, does their movie stink in comparison!  They missed all of the fun, ideas, and greatness of POM POKO.  Being a Racoon was never so much fun -- nor was pranking the humans.  It's a great tale of resistance and rebellion.  There's a couple of spooky sequences and you can see the creatures' private parts, but still we think it's appropriate for age 6+.
