Nightmare Ned is a short-lived animated television show which ran from April 19, 1997 to August 9, 1997 on ABC. Based on an eponymous video game of the same name developed by Creative Capers Entertainment and Window Painters Ltd., the show focuses on the life of Ned Needlemeyer (voiced by Courtland Mead), a 10-year-old boy that deals with his daily problems through dark, quirky nightmares. The show ran over budget, and was cancelled after only 12 episodes were produced.
The show had Donovan Cook as its producer and director. Cook previously created 2 Stupid Dogs.
