Nightmare Ned (found Disney animated TV series; 1997)
Nightmare Ned was a television series created by Terry Shakespeare, G. Sue Shakespeare and David Molina. It was a joint production between Walt Disney Television Animation and Creative Capers Entertainment. It was developed by Walt Dohm and produced by Donovan Cook, who before created the show 2 Stupid Dogs. The show spawned a Disney Windows PC game of the same name and was released around the same as the show. However, it ran very briefly on ABC from April 19th to August 9th, 1997. It had a total of 12 half-hour episodes, usually consisting of two segments, while episode twelve had three segments. The show was cancelled mainly due to the episodes often running over budget, and the creator of the show Walt Dohm had creative differences with the producer Donovan Cook. "It never really had a good chance to find its target audience."
The show revolves around a ten-year-old boy named Ned Needlemeyer, voiced by Courtland Mead, facing his daily problems through his crazy nightmares involving things like his school crush, to going to the dentist, to school bullies as well. His mom and dad, voiced by Victoria Jackson and Brad Garret, respectively, try to help Ned cope with his problems.
The show, unfortunately, has never received any home media release, along with no reruns. The show will likely never be shown on TV again because ABC-Disney wrote the show off as taxes, similar to other failed shows. Despite this, all episodes of the show have been found online in English in varying quality, with most episodes found in the Greek dub before the English dub. As of January 31, 2020, all the episodes have been found and can be viewable.
