London: Google is celebrating 107th anniversary of American cartoonist and animator Winsor Zenic McCay’s “Little Nemo in Slumberland” with an interactive doodle across the world.
Visitors to Google’s homepage were treated to a scrolling animated narration of the story dubbed “Little Nemo in Google-land” – though not all visitors may be able to experience it this time.
The interactive comic strip provides a small tab at the lower right area for visitors to click to see the continuation of the story.
Clicking on the tab at the end of the story will take the visitor to a Search Results page for Winsor Zenic McCay.
McCay, born September 26, 1869 and died July 26, 1934, was best known for the comic strip “Little Nemo” that started in 1905, and the animated cartoon “Gertie the Dinosaur” in 1914.
His comic strip work is credited for influencing generations of artists, including William Joyce, André LeBlanc, Moebius, Maurice Sendak, Chris Ware and Bill Watterson.
However, not all visitors will get to experience the Doodle: StateofSearch.com said only modern browsers will show it.
“The logo only works in modern browsers like Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer 9 and 10 but not in Internet Explorer versions 7 and 8,” it said.
