** Part two describes Brobdingnag as being located in a part of the world which was not known to Europe at the time. Now we call it Alaska. It's certainly big enough...

* AdaptationDisplacement: Most people are more familiar with the watered down adaptations of the story that [[DisneyFication reinterpet it as a childrens fairy tale]]. Many people aren't even aware that the famous Lilliput voyage only makes up the first 50 pages of the story, that there are three more voyages, and that the original story was a hard edged {{Satire}} and [[WhatDOYouMeanItsNotForKids most definetely]] '''[[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids not]]''' [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids a childrens book.]]

* ValuesDissonance: In the second part, Gulliver describes how he saw an execution by beheading. His eight year old "nanny" was brought along. Back then, it was perfectly fine to have children watch justice being served even in much gorier ways than simple beheading.

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: The shot where Gabby stumbles across Gullivers enormous hand, and where he runs away and sees the giant form in the distance.


Added DiffLines:

* TearJerker: The exhausted look of Gulliver as he is cast up on the beach, he's so tired from his ordeal he cant even stand.
** Gulliver's obvious home-sickness. The Lilliputtians are nice, but Gulliver just doesnt belong there.
** David's DisneyDeath.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation - Why should we listen to the Houyhnhnm? They're horses, who gives a crap?
** Gulliver's misfortunes are intentional and he prefers being InHarmsWay. He secretly loves his arduous trips, hence why he spends very little time at home before he leaves for sea, intending to be shipwrecked ''again''.
*** [[HenpeckedHusband Or maybe he just hates the missus.]]

* AwesomeMusic: The whole [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lr11nLTG4qc&list=PLBD77608132774F86 Soundtrack]] is beautiful and quite catchy.
** ''Faithful Forever'', enough to where the song even got an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward nomination!
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEqawMf7fKo I Hear A Dream'' ]]is also a very well done, solemn piece.
* CultClassic: For all of it's faults, the film was popular in it's heydey and still an enjoyable cartoon romp today, and it's remembered fondly enough to be considered a legitimate classic. It helps that the film is one of the very few animated features to be in the PublicDomain, thus making it an easily accessible staple of classic animation.

* FirstInstallmentWins: Everyone's heard of Lilliput, few of Brobdingnag, [[CastleInTheSky only anime fans]] of Laputa, and almost no-one of the Houyhnhnms (the [[{{Neologism}} coinage]] ''yahoo'', meaning "ill-mannered cretin", comes from the fourth voyage).
