Rating: 3.5/4 -- ...most notable for the signature Fleischer touches: comic violence; irritable, oval-eyed characters; a general preference for anarchy over order. Full Review

Description by

1939's Animated Children's Classic! Jonathan Swift's satire Gulliver's Travels comes to remarkable life in this classic animated feature. Shipwrecked by a storm at sea, Lemuel Gulliver washes up on the shores of Lilliput, where the citizens are no taller than his thumb. When he's discovered asleep on the beach by the town crier, Gabby, scores of the Lilliputians flock to the the beach to tie up and secure the sleeping "giant." In the fantastic adventures that follow, Gulliver finds himself mediating the feud between Lilliput's King Little and Blefuscu's King Bombo. Produced by Max Fleischer and directed by his brother Dave Fleischer over a period of 20 months, Gulliver's Travels required the work of over 700 artists and was honored with two Academy Award nominations in 1939 - Best Score (Victor Young), and Best Song ("Faithful Forever", music and lyrics by Ralph Rainger and Leo Robin).

Product Description:

In 1939, Dave and Max Fleischer--who created the classic jazzy Betty Boop and Popeye cartoons--turned their animation skills to a feature film adaptation of Jonathan Swift's classic novel. The film is alive with great visual and verbal gags and amazingly surreal visuals, both classic Fleischer traits. This animation classic picked up 2 Academy Award Nominations for Best Original Score and Best Song ("Faithful Forever").
