Cartoon Production Information:

This film was never released in North America in any format until it was screened at Vancouver's Pacific Cinematheque on December 29, 2012 as part of a Studio Ghibli retrospective.

"The Anime Encyclopedia" speculates that a United States release is possible due to a deal between Walt Disney Studios and Studio Ghibli. Designer Yoshiharu Sato was a member of the team involved in Disney's "The Tigger Movie" (2000).

Based on Hotaru Okamoto and Yuko Tone's original 1987 story, which was serialized in "Myojo" weekly.

The framing device of a middle-aged office lady in 1984 was devised by director-writer Isao Takahata specifically for the film; originally, the story concentrated on the misadventures of Taeko as a 10-year-old.
