''Gulliver's Travels'' has [[TheFilmOfTheBook been filmed]] several times, but most of the adaptations omit the last two voyages. Often, a {{bowdlerise}}d version of the voyage is printed as a children's book. Go [[WesternAnimation/GulliversTravels here]] for the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1939]] animated film version, and [[GulliversTravels2010Film here]] for the 2010 film starring Jack Black. In 1968 Creator/HannaBarbera produced a loosely-inspired animated adaptation ''The Adventures of Gulliver'' about teenaged Gary Gulliver.

* FromBadToWorse: The causes of Gulliver's (mis)adventures gets worse with each part of the book. In the first part, he gets shipwrecked. In the second, he gets abandoned. In the third, he gets attacked by pirates. In the fourth, his own crew mutinies against him.

Added DiffLines:

* AbridgedForChildren: ''Gulliver's Travels'' has appeared in children's abridgements, generally consisting only of the Lilliput and Brobdingnag sections, as tiny and gigantic people were thought to be easier for kids to relate to than scientific frauds, BlessedWithSuck immortals, historical satire and out-and-out misanthropy. The Lilliputian-fire extinguishing scene is always naturally euphemized.

* FanDisservice: An encounter with some of the young ladies of Brobdingnag has probably turned Gulliver off breasts for life, as every single imperfection in the skin texture is [[GrossUpCloseUp magnified to the same degree]].

* NobodyPoops: Averted with a vengeance. Along with the examples listed elsewhere on this page, while in Lilliput, a couple of luckless locals get stuck with the job of carting off Gulliver's solid waste every day.
