Based on "Little Nemo in Slumberland", the comic strip created by Winsor McCay in 1905 - 1914. Puppets, Stilts, Masks and Revelry!
Little Nemo has a hankering for strange snacks before bedtime - and when he falls asleep, strange things start happening! Alas, the Dawn Guard always comes and Nemo wakes up again, usually falling out of bed from the adventures he's had. Each show is a dream series based on the comics, hosted by Winsor McCay himself, created and animated by the creative team.
