The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.
Visit our Parents Guide Help to learn more

Sex & Nudity

There is a scene where the father bathes with his children. None of the genitals are seen, but there is a glimpse of the buttocks, and a small dot which may be representing a nipple can be seen at one point (although it may seem a bit odd to westerners, family baths are a social norm in the Far East).

Violence & Gore

The main characters' mother is sick in the hospital.

Their new house has tiny little "soot sprites" that crawl around and creep out the girls at first.

At first sight, Totoro might initially intimidate younger viewers, but he's quickly revealed to be a gentle, good friend.

Profanity

None

None

The scene where Mei runs away and Satsuki tries to find her in desperation may be a bit unsettling.
