I remember reading about Gulliver’s Travels when I was a child. Who can forget the town of Lilliput and all their inhabitants?
Truly a feast for the eyes and ears, Swiftâ€™s ageless fantasy comes to life in this cel-animated Technicolor musical. In the film, Gulliver washes ashore on the mysterious island of Lilliput, where all the inhabitants stand no more than a few inches tall. Gabby, the Lilliput town crier, discovers Gulliver unconscious on the beach, and alerts King Little who sends a mob of townspeople to capture the â€œgiant.â€ Once awake, Gulliverâ€™s size and strength frightens the Lilliputians, but they soon realize that befriending Gulliver gives them a powerful advantage over their rival neighbors, the equally tiny Blefuscudians. Caught in the feud between the two kingdoms, Gulliver resolves the conflict and reunites a prince with his princess before sailing away in one of the â€œhap-hap-happiestâ€ endings of all time.
Backed by Paramount and utilizing the talents of 600 of the best artists, Max and Dave Fleischer created Gulliver’s Travels, one of the most complicated and detailed animated features ever produced. Their staff toiled for over two years, using twelve tons of paint and 39,000 pencils to create over 639,000 celluloids and 115,000 composite scenes. The â€œgiganticâ€ titular character was animated using rotoscoping, a process which involves tracing live-action footage frame-by-frame â€“ one of several innovative animation techniques developed by the Fleischers and Fleischer Studios. Popular songs composed for the film include â€œAllâ€™s Well,â€ â€œItâ€™s a Hap-Hap-Happy Dayâ€ and â€œFaithful Forever,â€ all of which later became well-known standards.
