Fifth-grader, Toriyasu, and his little sister, Meeko, have a dog named Papadoll who has been missing for the past week. One night, two cats take the two children to the distant cat land of Banipal Witt, where Papadoll was abducted. Because of his long exposure to Banipal Witt's sun, Papadoll mutated into a giant dog monster, terrorizing the city under the control of the evil Princess Buburina, who has the curse of turning anyone she touches into balloons. Toriyasu, Meeko, and the cats have until the next sunrise to turn Papadoll and the ballooned citizens of Banipal Witt back to normal and return to their home planet—or end up with the same fate as their dog.

Totsuzen! Neko no Kuni Banipal Witt is a 1995 film brought to us by our old friends at Studio Hibari, whom you may recall from their work on Kashimashi & Venus Versus Virus. So, how do these folks handle a children's film and is it going to be any better than their track record would indicate? Let's give it a shot and delve in.


Papadoll has gone missing. His smallest human, Meeko, is convinced that he's been kidnapped by aliens but her brother, Toriyasu, doesn't take her seriously. In fact, the little brat doesn't seem to care saying that Papadoll just lay about all read more

Totsuzen! Neko no Kuni Banipal Witt, also known as Catnapped! The Movie, is an extremely charming children's movie about the secret world of cats. I was extremely fortunate to find this movie at Media Play (I've had this movie for THAT long...Media Play was still in business! xD) and I've been hooked ever since.

This is definitely one to bring home to the kids. The storyline is simple and fun for kids, and the animation is simple but entertaining. There are plenty of humorous moments to cheer on the progress, and once you hear the ending theme song, Yume He No Tobira, I challenge you to read more

It's not uncommon for someone to recommend a children's movie for the "young at heart", not to mention that many enjoy

children's films better as adults. My case with this movie is truly no exception, as I find it's a very cute and heartwarming

movie that very few people know exists... and I didn't see it until I was a junior in high school.

The film is about a brother and sister named Toriyasu and Meeko whose dog Papadoll has been missing for a long time. It

turns out that the dog has been taken to Banipal Witt, a strange world populated by anthropomorphic cats, where read more
