Nightmare Fuel: Little Nemo
- The comic where Nemo, Flip and Impie eat too much ice cream and then freeze. Impie is the first victim, who falls off his stool and shatters. Flip is next; when as someone tries to carry his frozen, paralyzed body away with a pair of ice tongs, he slips out and shatters into pieces. Then the frozen Nemo is brought back home, where he's placed in front of an oven to thaw him out, only his entire body begins to melt away as he screams for help.
- I wanted to rename it Little Disturbing Nemo and I've read Brave New World and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. This strip was honestly disturbing because of the break of comic book time and McCay's deadpan explanation. While the melting Nemo comic is disturbing, the one with the Cupid satire was grotesquely hilarious and horrifying.
- That one is probably also is an example of And I Must Scream.
- Take a closer look at the Father Time strip. As he's aging, he's wearing rich clothing all throughout his twenties and forties. Then, when he's 99, he's dressed like a bum. If what Father Time is implying is true, Nemo will live long enough to lose all his money and die cold and lonely, forgotten by his children.
