This seems firmly in the urban legend category and if memory serves (and it may not) the fuel for this sort of rumor might rest more in that My Neighbor Totoro originally opened as part of a double feature including the desolate Grave of the Fireflies, a film about two children who die of starvation in the wake of the firebombing of Tokyo.
