The Google Doodle folks are coming up with some amazing animated graphics these days and today may be the most spectacular of the Google Doodles, though I found it kind of annoying because you could not immediately go off to see what it was showcasing. Today’s doodle features Winsor McCay’s “Little Nemo” comic strip, today celebrating a 107th birthday. This is certainly the *largest* Google Doodle ever, as the animated sequence takes up several screens as you scroll down to reveal more and more of Little Nemo’s dream. It’s a spectacular animation and another in the amazing series of graphics from Google.
