Gulliver's Travels Among the Lilliputians and the Giants: French film pioneer, Georges Melies filmed this historic Gulliver film in 1902. It is a prime example of how Melies used stage magic and imaginative film tricks to amaze early movie audiences
In the 20th Century, the fantasy elements of the story made it an ideal subject for ambitious filmmakers using animation and special effects to bring the imaginative story to life. Numerous film adaptations have been produced over the years, but none as beloved as this classic animated version made by Max and Dave Fleischer, creators of the Popeye and Betty Boop cartoons.
Gulliver's Travels was only the second full-length animated movie ever made, begun shortly after Disney's ground-breaking Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The film received much acclaim for its artistic scope and memorable music, garnering Oscar-nominations for Best Score and Best Song. The character of Gulliver was given added realism through the Fleischer's invention, rotoscoping, a technique which involved filming a live actor, then tracing each frame of the film onto animation cells. The movie's noisy Lilliputian town crier, Gabby was such a popular character, he was given his own series of short cartoons.
