I've been a fan of Winsor McCay's fantastic old (1905-1914) Little Nemo in Slumberland newspaper comic strip for a while now, and yesterday I finally got around to watching the 1989 anime adaptation, which, although it involved such luminaries as Ray Bradbury and Moebius in the concepting and writing phases, has really as little to do with the original comic as could be. The characterization is all wrong (the princess is horribly snooty, for instance, and Nemo has been given a Disney-esque flying squirrel companion ;P), and the story is bad. So why am I embedding a YouTube playlist of the full movie?
Well I don't know. It had a tortured production, but it is at least animated well--by the Japanese studio that had just finished animating a rather better movie, Akira. Little Nemo was in fact the first anime with a nationwide theatrical release in the United States (but Akira was the first I saw).
(By the way I just recently added a "playlistembed" tag for embedding YouTube playlists on the A* forum. :D)
