Gulliver’s Travels (1939) – Fleischer Studios Feature Animated Film

Shipwrecked by a storm at sea, normal-sized Lemuel Gulliver washes up on the shore of Lilliput, where the citizens are no larger than Gulliver’s thumb.

Discovered by excitable town crier (and general fuss-budget) Gabby, Gulliver is roped to the ground by Lilliputians, only to escape with ease upon waking up. While longing to head home to England, Gulliver becomes involved in a feud between Lilliput’s King Little and Blefuscu’s King Bombo. On the eve of the wedding between Little’s daughter, Princess Glory, and Bombo’s son, Prince David, the two monarchs have a falling-out over which national anthem will be played at the ceremony.

Gulliver attempts to prevent war between Lilliput and equally minuscule rival Blefuscu, as well as smooth the way for the romance between David and Glory. In this, he is alternately aided and hampered by Gabby.

After a series of misunderstandings and intrigues, Gulliver solves everyone’s problems by suggesting that both anthems be played together, resulting in the song “Faithful Forever.”
