Watching this now (recorded on TCM Friday). It’s a compilation of 10 short
films from 1917-1921, all hand-drawn by McCay — thousands of black-and-
white pictures for each cartoon. These include “Little Nemo,” “Gertie the
Dinosaur,” among others. I found his “The Sinking of the Lusitania” to be most
impressive. Quite stunning what he was able to accomplish, they’re stunning
and beautiful in their simplicity.

Thanks for mentioning this!

(It's "Winsor," to be accurate.)

I recorded it because Genesis had a song about McCay and Little Nemo back in 1978 ("Scenes from a Night's Dream").

So, as usual, Phil Collins is the heart behind all good things.

I DVRd it and look forward to seeing. I really like Little Nemo, and the Genesis
connection doesn't hurt!

Moving this one to Movies - and correcting his name!

Copying my original post so I can make a correction:*

It’s a compilation of 10 short films from 1911-1921, all hand-
drawn by McCay — thousands of black-and-white pictures for each
cartoon. These include “Little Nemo,” “Gertie the Dinosaur,” among
others. I found his “The Sinking of the Lusitania” to be most
impressive. Quite stunning what he was able to accomplish; they’re
stunning and beautiful in their simplicity.

(*Can’t seem to edit my original post.)

Fascinated by McCay since I saw these printed in a library book on comic strips:

Have two incomplete runs of Nemo collections, but I think all the strips.
