Little Nemo in Slumberland

12 Sep

A segment from the animated movie based on the comic strip “Little Nemo in Slumberland”. This actualy was one of the first animated films, from 100 years ago, 1911 (and in colour)!

The comic strip “Little Nemo” was created by Winsor McCay between 1904 and 1914. It gained a status of an early classic for it’s imaginative storyline about the hero Nemo having fantastical, surreal adventures during his nightly dreams, every time to wake up safely in his bed just in time, an unconventional style for a comic in those days. It was far from being a simple children’s fantasy, being more threatening and hallucinatory in nature. I think this clip represents it well.
