The pandas of Panda! Go, Panda! are considered by some to be precursors of the Totoros,, while the spunky red-headed heroine, Mimiko, is sometimes seen as a prototype Mei, the younger sister in Totoro. Mimiko also shares several traits with Pippi Longstocking, whose creator, Astrid Lindgren, had been asked by Miyazaki one year prior for permission(which was not granted) to turn into animation.
