Yet another animated series from Disney, premiering on April 17, 1997. Ned Needlemeyer is a nervous 8-year-old with several intense fears, which play themselves out in exaggerated fashions in his dreams. Each episode is basically one long Nightmare Sequence of Ned facing a different fear. The show lasted for 25 episodes.
The TV show contained examples of the following tropes Edit
- Asshole Victim: Conrad and Verne in "Ned's Life as a Dog" and Ned in "Robot Ned".
- Anti-Villain: Sammy 7.
- Cool and Unusual Punishment: "Along For the Ride" ends with Ned and his family being forced to listen to Baby's squeaky toy for all eternity.
- Chess with Death: One sequence has Ned playing checkers with the Tooth Fairy over his teeth.
- Everythings Better With Bunnies: The Easter Bunny in one episode.
- Panty Shot: In "A Doll's House", because Ned is shrunken to the size of a doll, the twin girls are giants compared to him and from his point of view, he gets upskirt views of their undies.
- Potty Emergency: on an episode where two tall girls keep Ned as a pet and force feed him water.
- Punch Clock Villain: the rat from "Along for the Ride".
- Talking to Himself: Kath Soucie in one episode.
- Those Two Bad Guys: Conrad and Vernon, who were not named at all until one of the last episodes.
- Unwilling Roboticisation: Ned and his family get this at the end of "Robot Ned", which horrifies Ned so much he explodes.
