REVIEWER'S NOTE: This review was written in 2009 for the DVD version of Little Nemo released that year. Please be aware that Amazon -- as usual -- has ported ALL the old reviews over to listings for newer editions of the film on both Blu-ray and DVD, and which may differ slightly (including added Japanese audio tracks) from this edition.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Though this film deserves a full-blown special edition designed with adults in mind--or at the very least a book detailing its troubled production history--the best treatment it's had to date was the 2004 TMS/Funimation/Our Time Family Entertainment DVD from 2004. That disc has long been out of print and fetching inflated prices via eBay and various Amazon Marketplace sellers.

But now it's back. And despite Amazon incorrectly listing the aspect ratio as 1.33:1 and the distributor as Platinum Disc, rest assured that this is EXACTLY the same disc content as the 2004 edition: the film is presented in ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN, with 5.1 Surround Sound (plus a basic Stereo option) plus all the extras from the original release, which are decidedly aimed at children unfortunately. You get: static-screen character profiles; a Slumberland Singalong featuring three songs from the film; a "Make Your Own Royal Scepter" craft project (text frames) and four trailers, one of which is for a computer-animated children's feature called A WOBOTS CHRISTMAS that looked so horrendously out-of-date even in 2004 that it could only be a Christian film, plus three other trailers for much better productions: the likewise computer-generated Canadian feature SANTA CLAUS BROTHERS (2001), the flat-animated short NOEL NOEL (also from Canada), and a lengthy spot for one of the early ARTHUR DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Movie That We Couldn't Quite Remember... January 4, 2010
By D. Vann
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Around a three years ago, I remembered a movie from my childhood. It had a flying bed, a magical sceptor, and a terrifying villian known as the nightmare king. I just couldn't remember what it was called!

I was so frustrated, that I decided to consult with my friends. Turns out, they too had a vague recollection of that "amazing movie" they had seen as children. It wasn't until a few years later that I remember the protagonist's name- Nemo. I Google searched that sucker til I found this gem.
I just finished watching it myself, and I'm floored. All the nostalgic moments are breath-taking. I felt all of the excitement from my childhood. I am definitely bringing this over to my friends' house next week.

With amazing animation, a trippy story, and a memorable cast; I recommend this for the grown ups that want to revist their childhood, or the toddlers that want to see a great fantasy adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Inspired Story September 2, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Bradbury and Giraud's influences are obvious. The story is filled with goodwill and heart without being sentimental or maudlin. Little Nemo breaks a promise and unleashes the Nightmare King's powers against his friends in Dreamland, and must face his terror to rescue them. The images of Dreamland are breathtaking. The jester-goblins are endearing. Flip's character is a mischief and has many faults, but not of cynicism. There is no adult subtext, no disparagement or side cracks, no misplaced self-consciousness anywhere in this movie. It would appeal to lively, intelligent, creative children, and it would engage their parents' interest and fancy too. I hope it is re-released soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent adaption! August 7, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
It amazes me that none of the previous reviews mentions the comic by Winsor McCay! This is truly one of the most faithful adaptions to the ideas of any work that I have seen. Winsor McCay would be proud.
Mickey Rooney does a fine job as Flick, the shifty and miscievous imp. I have read that French artist Jean Giraud (aka Moebius), and Ray Bradbury are both involved with this film. It shows.
This movie has an interesting plot, fascinating characters, and beautiful animation. As with most good films, there are occasional scenes which may frighten younger viewers (anyone remember the witch from Disney's Snow White?) but do not let this dissuade you from giving this film a try if you can find it.
My only complaint was the superfluous character, Icarus. At least this time the "cute animal" was relatively low key and did not distract from the rest of the film.
I hope that it is re-released post-haste!

5.0 out of 5 stars An old favorite! March 21, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my son (now 24 years old) because it was one of his favorite movies from his childhood. He was ecstatic! I was so happy that I was able to find it because its a somewhat obscure movie -- not like the big Disney classics. Amazon is amazing!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good animation but not as artistic as McCay himself. February 9, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
The animation is great, the background designs are awesome. But if you going to expect to fullfill your Winsor McCay quality expectation, don't count on it! The whole movie is rather just a long episode of a typical Japanese anime movie. There is no essence of the McCay magic towards it. Everything is just there for you to see and no surprises. The story drags way too long; the characters interact with each other more than actually anticipates in the events of the story. They talk more than actually getting the story going.
The music is not bad, but I could hardly hear what they are singing. And it is not as well written and scored as the early 1900s Little Nemo musical (rare to find!). It seems like they did the music because they need it for the movie.
It is a good movie to rent, but not good enough for any animator or animation fan to keep in the shelf. But this is the western society, the asian society might have a different point of view. Afterall, it is made in Japan.
