Check out the references to other Studio Ghibli films during this sequence in Pom Poko. This scene actually happens really fast. The only reference I noticed initially was Totoro, but after going through the scene again, I noticed the other two.
- In the first gif, you see Kiki fly by, from Kiki’s Delivery Service.
- In the second gif, you see Porco fly by, from Porco Rosso.
- And in the third gif, you see the loveable Totoro fly by, from My Neighbor Totoro.
Doubt this will save your life, but it’s a fun little thing to catch, whenever you watch Pom Poko, which you should, because it’s fun and awesome. ^_^
