One of the many memorable images in My Neighbor Totoro is Catbus. Studson Studios thought it would be fun to redesign the walking bus as if it was Garfield. It’s not an original idea, but the first time we’ve seen the orange Catbus brought to life as a 3-dimensional object. We imagine it’s powered by lasagna, not gasoline.
Marvelous Media Engine created this awesome animated music box based on the Catbus from Studio Ghibli’s My Neighbor Totoro. What’s even more impressive about this is that it’s all CGI, using Blender3D and other CG animation software to pull off the photorealistic look of the zoetrope.
