    Help me solve a mystery?

    Let me tell you a tale of childhood dreams, strange visions, and a VHS rental store...

    Okay, so back during the Pokemon craze in America, of which I was a proud member, I used to go to the Video Store and rent episodes. One day I somehow came home with a different anime. I'm not sure if it was a movie or just a long first episode, but judging from the art style and quality it was old, older than Pokemon probably. I watched it once, can't even remember if I liked it, and returned it, never to see it again.

    Well I just remembered all of this today for some odd reason, and now I'm dying to find it. I can remember just a few details, unfortunately.

    1. Protagonist is a little girl (oh THAT narrows it down!) I want to say she was wearing a red dress. Kinda Chibi-ish but not quite.
    2. She lived with a old woman, probably her grandmother.
    3. An early scene involves a boy on his bike in front of the house. The grandmother is yelling at him I believe.
    4. The scene that sticks out in my head the most: The little girl is standing on the side of the road, possibly a bus stop, at night. Standing next to her is this big fluffy creature who kinda looks like Snorlax (he's on the cover and it's probably why I thought it was Pokemon). He may have been holding one of those hobo sticks with the hankerchief tied on the end. And I think he talked.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated! This is driving me nuts!

    That explains why I could find it in an American VHS store. Now I have to actually watch it!

    I'm not sure if I'm relieved or disappointed.

    This wasn't even a mystery. If it was a mystery we would've needed a van with a couple of girls, three guys and a dog.
