Pom Poko

Heisei tanuki gassen pompoko

Tanuki, the legendary Japanese raccoon-dogs, are fun-loving creatures who live deep in the ancient forests. Threatened by the encroachment of suburban developments, one group of tanuki finally resolves to wage war against the workers and machines. Trained with the aid of three tribal elders from the distant island of Shikoku, the insurgent tanuki use their magic to stage a series of spectacular interventions to stop the invading humans once and for all.
