Max Fleischer’s Gulliver's Travels -- Max Fleischer's classic version of Jonathan Swift's tale of the shipwrecked Englishman who is washed ashore in Lilliput, a diminutive land by whose scale Gulliver is a full-blown giant. The adaptation – a landmark in animation -- still goes over well with youngsters bemused by the images of tiny people coping with an oversized man, the movie's comic invention more than compensates for the subplot of neighboring kingdoms warring over a royal wedding and the songs, including the Oscar-nominated “Faithful Forever,” are quite nice. The DVD features a beautifully restored print, along with two “Gabby” cartoons and a vintage documentary about Fleischer Studios in Florida. A-I (nr) 1939
