The game inspired a short-lived television series which ran from April 19, 1997 to July 5, 1997 on ABC. The show focused on Ned, who in each episode would face a problem in the real world. He would then fall asleep and face his problem as a dark, quirky nightmare. At the end of each episode, Ned would wake up and resolve the problem. The show had only 25 episodes before it ended. The show was cancelled due to causing the producers to over-budget and some parents complained the show to be too frightening for children.
