There are those moments when as cute as a lot of the My Neighbor Totoro characters are memorably cute, there are just some aspects that can be rather scary.
Just look at that - the Catbus is pretty creepy in this figure. And just look at the expression on the Totoro's face!
Then again, I'm not sure how I'd feel if I had a Catbus perched on my shoulders.
Just remember that they're all meant to be our friends, right?
