I have the same vague memories and found your question by seeking to find the answer. Did anyone get back to you?

> does anyone remember a cartoon that was part of an animation festival from the late 80's-early 90's (possible spike and mike). the story was about a universe where babies were scientists and one discovers that they are figments of a man's dream and he is about to wake up and end their existence? they send pillow-clad commando's into our world to muffle his alarm clock and save themselves, but at the end, his dream shifts and they turn into flamingos? i know- sounds like an acid trip, but i'm trying to find it for my kids. not an ad, but i know one of you guys will know.
