On its original theatrical release in Japan, it was double-featured with Grave of the Fireflies (1988) as the film was believed to be too big a financial risk as a standalone release.
To-to-ro? You're Totoro!... I bet you're Totoro...
When Satsuki and Mei are waiting for the bus in the rain, the bus stop sign reads 'Maezawa-gyo' in some scenes while in other scenes the sign reads 'Shichikokuyama-gyo'.
The ending sequence has animation of Totoro and some of the characters from the film walking.
Current prints are missing the Toho Company, Ltd. title card that originally started the film.
