A Computer Generated Zoetrope Featuring a Running Catbus From Hayao Miyazaki’s ‘My Neighbor Totoro’

Marvelous Media Engine turned a wonderful animation of Catbus, a combination feline/vehicle character from the Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli anime My Neighbor Totoro, into a computer generated zoetrope inside a music box. The opening of the box causes the zoetrope to spin, causing Catbus to run. When the lights go out, the running Catbus glows in the dark.

Most adorable music box ever. This is continuing my exploration of turning animations into zoetropes.
