Jonathan Swift’s classic story served as the inspiration for this 1939 American animated Technicolor musical feature film directed by Dave Fleischer. The story is a very loose adaptation of the novel, specifically the first part which tells the story of Lilliput and Blefuscu, and centres around an explorer who helps a small kingdom who declared war after an argument over a wedding song. The film provides an ideal way of familiarising young audiences with what is a wonderful travel fantasy for children, a perennial favourite that continues to inspire countless versions, in books and films.
