The central story of a little boy who stumbles across an enchanted kingdom in his dreams has an evergreen appeal that would've translate well to celluloid in any era, however. Given the on-and-off-again writing situation, the fact that Little Nemo has a fairly solid story is remarkable in its own right. These two are more fast paced than the main songs but ultimately less significant.
In making Nemo into a dimwitted nonentity, the movie is only following an old tradition in animation, which holds that the hero is often the least interesting character in the story.

Subsequently, was hired to work from Columbus' screenplay while Columbus was busy with his directorial debut,. Nemo is a boy plagued by nightmares, until the circus arrives in town and Nemo begins dreaming about a magical empire. He never showed any great propensity to dream or dream well. Parents of kids who already visit their own Nightmarelands regularly may want to take note: the king of Nightmareland looks scary, with menacing glowing eyes.
