Retronauts Micro Episode 67: Little Nemo
Dig into the history of Winsor McCay's famous creation and the two video games it inspired.
Episode description: We NES kids know Little Nemo best from his classic Capcom platformer, but what about the character's role in a revolutionary newspaper comic from the early 20th century? And what of Little Nemo's extraordinarily expensive and fairly obscure box office flop that spawned two different video games? On this episode of Retronauts Micro, join Bob Mackey, Henry Gilbert, and Mikel Reparaz as the gang traces the history of Winsor McCay's sleepy hero across three different forms of media.
- Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland (the full movie)
- Yoshifumi Kondo's Little Nemo pilot (1984)
- The second pilot for Little Nemo
- Winsor McCay's 1911 Little Nemo animated short
