Based on the 1985 novel Witch's Delivery Service by Eiko Kadono, Kiki's Delivery Service is a 1989 theatrical anime film directed by Hayao Miyazaki and animated by Studio Ghibli. Fathom Events describes the story of Kiki's Delivery Service as follows:


It is a tradition for all young witches to leave their families on the night of a full moon and fly off into the wide world to learn their craft. When that night comes for Kiki, she embarks on her new journey with her sarcastic black cat, Jiji, landing the next morning in a seaside village, where her unique skills make her an instant sensation.


Kiki and Tombo share a tandem bicycle ride.
