Parents should be aware that Japanese animes cover a full spectrum of subjects, from children’s movies (like the charming My Neighbor Totoro also written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki) through serious subjects like Princess Mononoke, to pornography. While North American animation is also exploring more “mature” content (such as Beavis and Butthead ), carefully consider the content of any Japanese animated movie before having your children view them.

For an example of a North American animation targeting a teen audience, see Titan A.E. Some films have a talent for reaching more than age group at a time, such as Chicken Run . If you are looking for environmental messages, check out Once Upon a Forest , or Family Tree . For other stories about children raised by wolves, try The Jungle Book (Disney’s 1960’s animated frolic) or one of the many live action versions: The Jungle Book: Mowgli’s Story , The Jungle Book , or Second Jungle Book .
