Nemo is a little boy who lives in 1905 New York City. A blimp approaches his house, and the clown who steps out of it informs him that he has been requested as a playmate by the princess of Slumberland. Traveling to Slumberland, the boy is soon involved in a mission to rescue its ruler, who has been kidnapped by the Nightmare King. A tiresome and condescending attempt to reverse-engineer Disney by a studio that reputedly removed members of staff who refused to toe the party line-one of whom was Hayao Miyazaki, whose version of LN might well have been vastly superior if he had only been allowed to complete it. As it is, the film is a confusion of good-intentioned but insincere clich├ęs, including halfhearted musical numbers, far removed from the original 1905 comic strip by Winsor McCay on which it is based. The production features a large number of famous names, including voice actors Mickey Rooney (Flip the Clown) and Rene Auberjonois (Professor Genius). Disney's Frank Thomas, Roger Allers, and Ollie Johnson were among the animators, the songs were written by the Sherman brothers (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), while Jean "Moebius" Giraud provided "conceptual design." However, many of the crew are "ghost" credits symptomatic of a long and troubled production-Ray Bradbury is credited with the "screen concept" but seems to have left the production early on, while the press notes carelessly trumpet the involvement of Chinatown scenarist Robert Towne as a "story consultant," a likely sign that Towne had been called in to rescue a failing premise. Both Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata split from the production at an early stage due to "creative differences," while Yoshifumi Kondo stayed to work on the first (1984) pilot. A second (1987) pilot, credited to Osamu Dezaki, also exists, and both are included as bonus items on the Laser Disc release.
