A five-year-old boy develops a relationship with Ponyo, a young goldfish princess who longs to become a human after falling in love with him.
Toki, the bitter old lady in the rest home, is actually an affectionate homage to Miyazaki's mother (as was the mother in My Neighbor Totoro (1988)).
Ponyo loves Sosuke! I will be a human, too!
In the English Dub, shortly after Ponyo is taken back to the ocean, Ponyo's father Fujimoto calls her Ponyo before she mentions the name and yet is still surprised when she demands to be called it.
The English dubbed version adds the Walt Disney Pictures logo to the start and end of the film.
