Are You Afraid of the Dark? “The Tale of the Final Wish” (part 2 of 2)
But Jill can’t run away. She’s being sucked under the bed by some kind of powerful vortex.
Is it just me, or does that look like a big, blue birth canal?
In any case, Jill finds herself in the lair of Bobcat Goldthwait, soon to be identified as the Sandman, of “And Other Tales” fame. The Sandman obviously digs theme rooms, because there are a bunch of clocks and stuff everywhere. Jill wanders around for a moment, then comes upon all of her friends and family floating in the air, sleeping blissfully.
Jill finds the Sandman’s special sleeping powders, along with a giant hourglass. When she approaches the hourglass, the Sandman totally freaks out (though, it’s hard to tell, seeing as how Bobcat delivers all his lines like he’s totally freaking out) and screams at her to stay away from it.
He explains that Jill is in the Land of Nod, where everyone goes to dream. You know, as in, nodding off? So it’s a good thing she didn’t end up in the Land of Jack.
