Little Nemo in Googleland: Celebrating a comic great

email article email article print article print article tip @techmeme

If you like comics there is a chance you remember the adventures on Little Nemo in Slumberland. No? Not ringing any bells? Well Google wants to remind you with a special doodle paying tribute to the comic and its creator Winsor McCay.

The comic followed the adventures of a little boy in a dream world ruled by King Morpheus, who wanted Nemo as a playmate for his daughter, the Princess.

The elaborate doodle which marks the 107th anniversary of the comic recreates the adventures of Little Nemo from the illustrator’s comic strips, which first appeared on 15 October 1905 in the New York Herald.

The doodle works as an interactive animation that shows the story of Little Nemo in Slumberland, in comic strip style. The Google imprint remains ever-present in each story panel with the story ending the same way the comic strips end — with Nemo falling from his bed.

This new and fun rendition of McCay’s comic is titled Little Nemo in Googleland. This is possibly the most elaborate doodle by the search giant yet. It will keep you entertained for a good two minutes!
