McCay would begin seven more animated cartoons (that we know of), but he completed only four of them.  Hearst had stifled cartooning's first authentic genius.  So anemic an attraction did they deem Little Nemo that they gave McCay all rights to his creation when he left.  With no other assignment, McCay could pour his creative energies into his sermons in black­and­white.  Nemo was McCay's masterpiece.  The artist and his chosen medium were, for a time, perfectly suited to one another. They were joined in a cycle of creative invigoration: the artist followed his interests to expand the potential of his form, and the form, together with his story concept, stimulated his imagination, driving him to experiment further.

Mutt presented itself as a Page 42 Figure 23. When Mutt went on trial, Fisher converted the strip to a miniature newspaper, with daily "photographs" and their "captions" carrying the narrative—and building suspense.

The feature reveals McCay's fascination with the capacity of a comic strip to depict events in timed sequence: Sammy's gasping through the first four panels is the "clock" that times events, and as the boy struggles with the on­rushing sneeze, McCay shows the simultaneous actions of the two men in the background going about their business.  The background stays the same as Sammy works up to his catastrophic sneeze, but McCay displayed his understanding of the sequential nature of the medium by running Sammy's face through changes of expression while portraying some parallel action among the accompanying adults, who conduct themselves in complete obliviousness to the disaster building under their very noses.
